Train Travel / Paris to Normandy and Brittany

Jump to last reply

I am doing some planning for an autumn trip to France for my wife and me. We are retired and active and we enjoy independant travel. We would like to travel to Nomandy and Brittany and spend a little time in Paris also. We've been to Paris for about 10 days in the past, but as you know, you can never spend too much time in Paris. I have Celt ancestry and that is the attraction with Brittany. Besides, I have have heard it is beautiful and somewhat off the tourist track. We also would like to see the beaches and memorials in Normandy. We are planning to be travelling in France for about two weeks. I woukd like to avoid driving and I was wondering if it is possible to get the feel for Normandy and Brittany by picking 3 - 4 places to stay ( 2 -3 nights) and taking trains to these places (and which places they would be?). I realize we would miss many things in between, but that is the price we will have to pay for not driving. Thank you very much for your help.
