Four Night Trip Round Normandy

Jump to last reply

In early October my wife and I plan to fly into DeGaull airport around mid-night between Sat-Sun and tour Normandy until Thu, when I need to be back in Paris in the evening for a business meeting. We will stay in Paris for three nights afterwards.
I have read the forums and some guides but now I need some help in putting it although to get the most out of this brief junket through Normandy, which seems so enchanting by from what I read.
Here is the plan, as best as I can put it together now. After resting for a few hours at a hotel at or around ithe airport, I plan to rent a car. I assume the best route is counterclock-wise. First Day (Sun) - CDG - Giverny-Rouen-Honfleur. Second Day (Mon) - Honfleur - Etretat & Coast - Bayeux. Third Day (Tue) - Bayeux - Fourth Day (Wed) - D-Day - Mont St. Michel at night. Fifth Day - Mont St. Michel (morning) - drive back to Paris & return car. We particularly like lodging with rooms with a view and would appreciate any suggestions. I thought the Best Western in Honfleur next to the inner harbor would have a scenic view, although we understand that the rooms are rather small. Any suggestions on the itinerary and accommodations would be a great help.
