Suggestions for Paris, Normandy, and Bordeaux?

Jump to last reply

My wife and I are planning a trip in September to France. We love Paris, but want to see the countryside this time as well. This forum has been a tremendous help on previous trips to France and Italy. So here are our plans, any input is welcome:

Two nights in Paris. We love apartments and dislike hotels. Two nights is hard to find an apartment, however. I would like to be in walking distance of Notre Dame. I have found one which will work at $200 a night.

Take the train to Cain and spend one or two nights there. We want to tour the D Day beaches and see Mont St. Michel. Is it worth staying in Mont St. Michel overnight? We have already seen the hotel Churchill recommended, any others?

I know it is at the other end of France, but we love wine and want to visit the Bordeaux region and do a wine tour. Should we rent a car and drive, or take the train. I have driven in Italy and loved it, so that is not a problem.

If we rent a car, we would return it at Charles De Gaulle Airport.

Thanks in advance of the advice.
