I've read some very interesting posts on Fodors about Normandy and have drawn up a tentative itinerary and would love comments. We will be coming from central London and leaving from CDG. This trip is for late July/early August:
Day 1: Morning Chunnel to Calais. Rent car, drive to either Honfleur or Deauville (depending on where we stay). Sightsee in town
Day 2: Visit the other town (Honfleur or Deauville)
Day 3: Drive to Rouen and sightsee. Back to H or D for the evening.
Day 4: Drive to Bayeux, settle into hotel, sightsee in town
Day 5: Battlefield tour
Day 6: Mont St Michel
Day 7: Drive around Calvados (Lisieux, Pont Eveque, etc)
Day 8. Check out of Bayeux hotel. Make way towards CDG with stop either at Giverny or Chartes. Find a nice place to stay within 30 min of airport
Day 9: fly home

We don't like to move around to a lot of different hotels, so I will try to get away with only 2 hotels (plus one the night before the flight). Places we are considering: Honfleur either Ferme St Simeon or La Chaumiere (but they seem very overpriced based on Trip Advisor reviews. I don't mind paying the $ for quality). Deauville: either Villa Josephine one of the "grande dames", but same concerns about quality for the latter. Suggestions welcome for 3+ star places
Bayeux: Tardif or Ch. La Cheneviere (worry about some of those reviews, too).

Thanks in advance for suggestions and comments.
