super-safe parking in Honfleur?

Jump to last reply

Hello - I have realized that I'm "assuming" something, and you know what they say about that.....so here's my question.
After a week in an apartment in Paris, we'll pick up a rental car on Monday, 9/22, and be headed towards our b&b in Bayeux. We're diverting to Giverny since our friends haven't been before - the vehicle will be holding all the luggage for the four adults for almost a month in France! I never feel comfortable parking a car and leaving it if luggage is in the back and it seems rental cars don't provide covers in the back of the non-sedan vehicles so DH (who's been to Giverny 3 times) will stay with the car.
Current plan: head to Bayeux, drop bags at b&b Manoire St-Victoire, quick lunch nearby, head to the landing sites for the time we have. The next morning early, head an hour away to Honfleur - visit, tour, lunch, drive back towards Bayeux and head to D-Day areas again. Final morning: visit the tapestry, wander the market, and after lunch, head to Mont-St-Michel for the night.
Here's the question: it would be so much better to head from Giverny to Honfleur and visit that delightful spot for the afternoon rather than backtracking the next morning, but we'll have this packed vehicle. That way, perhaps we could even fit in a return (for DH and me) to Caen for the Peace Museum. So, I am *assuming* that there's not a super-safe spot to leave the loaded car, but thought: maybe someone on here knows differently? If not, we'll still have a superb visit there, so no spilt tears, but I'd kick myself if I find out later we could have made this work!
Thanks for any help - and I am promising to publish a trip report for this odyssey!
