Loire Valley, Normandy, Paris--need help with itinerary

Jump to last reply

We'll spend 16 days in France, end of June beginning of July. We are a family with two children--15 and 10 years old. We would like to drive in a loop through Loire Valley and Normandy (8 nights) and end in Paris (8 nights). We would like to keep the number of hotels we'll change at the minimum possible. Here is the initial plan with some questions.

Days 1-4
Loire Valley. We would like to base ourselves in Amboise and explore from there via rental car. Should we get to Tours on TGV and rent a car there to get to Amboise or rent a car from CDG airport and drive to Amboise? My husband will already be in Paris and will meet us at the airport. He won't be too tired from a flight to drive if that's the better option.

We do not plan to check every single palace and chateaux but to focus on the most interesing ones and take our time to enjoy. We may want to reduce our stay here to 3 nights if Normandy is worth 5 nights.

Day 5
Leave Amboise in the morning and drive to Mt St Michel, stay overnight.
We thought it was in Normandy but it turns out it is in Brittany. In any case, it is a place we would like to see. Just by looking at the map we decided that it would be nice to drive to Dinard or St Malo, have lunch there and continue on to Mt St Michel. See it in the evening and again in the morning, then continue to Normandy. Is it realistic?

Days 6-8
Normandy. We are struggling to find the most interesting and convenient base town. Should it be Bayeux or Honfleur?

Day 9
Leave in the morning and head to Paris (or Versailles). On the way we plan to stop at Giverny to tour Monet's museum.

Is overnight in Versailles worth it? We visited the place about 12 years ago on a half-day tour from Paris and felt very rushed, didn't have time to see everything we wanted to see. We would like to go back and see it at our own pace, especially that my daughter has not been there and wants to see it. We know that by staying overnight we can explore the town better but it's another hotel change, which we'd like to make only if it's worth it.

If we go to Paris and return the car, we will have 8 nights there and will do Versailes as a day trip. Otherwise, we'll have 1 night in Versailles and 7 nights in Paris. I know that there is a nice evening show with fireworks in the palace gardens over the weekends. We can do it only if we do a day trip from Paris on the weekend because, otherwise, the day we get there if we drive directly from Normandy is a week day. Is it worth it to do a day trip vs. overnight just for that?

Many questions, I know. Thank for your help.
