Paris Plans with Friends & Castle in Between

Jump to last reply

Developing itinerary with 2 couple. We will most likely be traveling to Paris separately.

One of the couples has a reservation at a castle in the small town of Plumerlec in Brittany from Saturday, June 30 through Saturday, July 7th. This is where we will be meeting up with our friends.

Here are the tentative plans for my husband and me:

6/27. Depart US
6/28. Arrive Paris (CDG) @ 7 am. Stay over one night in Paris
We will walk around - see what we can, grab a bite, staying awake as long as possible. nothing concrete planned as I will be a zombie when we get there.
6/29. Take early train from Paris to Caen. Rent car via auto Europe
Drive to Normandy and tour major sights
When finished, drive on to MSM. See at night when crowds are gone
Stay over night @ Les Vieilles Digues
6/30
Up early to see MSM before hordes of crowds arrive - hoping to be on our way no later
10 am
Drive along the Emerald Coast toward St Malo (suggestions for places to see are appreciated) and then heading South to Plumelec (home base) Our pace and stops will depend upon how we feel at the time. Anything we miss, we can return on a day trip as the area is about 1.5 to 2 hours from our home base.
7/1 to 7/6 - day trips in and around area - any suggestions are welcome.
7/7. Head to Rennes train station to drop off car and head to Paris.
Our departure flight leaves in morning of July 11, so we have 3.5 days to site see in and around Paris - do day trips from Paris or stop in another Town near Paris accessible via train.
I am a big fan of this site and am hoping that you all will be able to provide suggestions based on your vast experiences.
My husband are experienced travelers, although this will be our first trip in a long time to France. We had only been in Paris once for a short stay We are 54 and 63 and active - not afraid of a lot of walking but not up to vigorous hiking. We like to mix touristy sites in with off-off-the -beaten path sites (suggestions welcome).

I look forward to your comments and help with this itinerary. Merci.
