Trip Report September Trip to Normandy/Brittany/Paris

Jump to last reply

I am way overdue submitting my trip report from this past September! I don't know where the time goes. I did a lot of research for this trip and it really paid off. We had a wonderful time and plan to revisit this area in the next couple of years. Here is an overview of the trip. I will post more details on retaurants, sites, accommodations and travel tips. I will also post pictures.

We stayed 7 days in Port-en-Bessin in a fisherman's cottage right on the water facing the entrance to the harbor. The name of the rental is Le Gite des 3 Moussaillons. It was a two bedroom/2 bath, three story home. The view was wonderful. We were able to watch the tides go in and out and watch the fishing boats and kayakers go in and out. We had breakfast every morning at a little table by the window. We had spectacular weather while we were there.

While in the Normandy area, we spent one day with a D-Day private guide. We also visited the American Cemetery, Arromanche and the Tapestry Museumi n Bayeux on our own. We spent one day visiting Honfleur and driving the Cidre Route. We also visited Mont St. Michel with a stop in Villedieu les Poeles (copper town) on the way.

While in Brittany, we stayed one night in downtown Dinan and two nights at a Relais and Chateau on the Pink Granite Coast. Our hotel in Dinan was Hotel Larvor. On the Pink Granite coast, we stayed Manoir de Lan Kerellec.

We dropped of the rental car in Rennes then took the train to Paris. We stayed 3 nights in a very cute apartment on rue Tiquetone, which is right off of Rue Montorguiel in the 2nd. We really enjoyed this area. Lots of bakeries and food stalls and walking distance to just about everything. We liked the area so much that we are staying in the same area again this coming September.
