Quick Trip to Normandy

Jump to last reply

We're planning a very short trip to Normandy in October. We leave on Monday the 13th and return on Sunday the 19th. The brevity of the trip is dictated by the need to fit it in between my grandson's birthday and his half term holidays.

My proposed itinerary is as follows:

Ferry to Cherbourg, arriving at 1:45. Pick up a rental car, but apparently not until 3:00 pm.

Drive to Avranches and spend Monday night.

Get up early on Tuesday and drive to Mont Saint-Michel. I'm use a lightweight mobility scooter, so I don't expect to be able to do much, but I do at least want to set foot on the Mont.

Drive to Honfleur for Tuesday and Wednesday night.

Drive to Bayeux for the last three nights, returning to Cherbourg on Sunday to take the ferry back to the UK.

I'd love to have comments on the feasibility and wisdom of this plan.
