Train/car vs Car for trip from Paris to Normandy

Jump to last reply

I'm having trouble wrapping my head around travel logistics. Three of us are traveling to Normandy in May after several days in Paris, so we can leave in the morning and will not be jet-lagged. We will be there 4 nights and would like to see Givergny on the way, if time allows. We would like to stay in Bayeux (or at the La Ferme aux Cats B&B in the nearby village of Formigny) for 3 (or 4) nights, and maybe one night in Honfleur. We definitely will have a car in Normandy, and may even consider a (long) drive/day trip one of our days in Bayeux to Mont Saint Michel. We realize that this first trip to Normandy will just allow some highlights such as the Tapestry museum, landing sites, etc. And Honfleur just looks a nice place to see with surrounding cider/cheese routes. After we depart Normandy, we will travel to Bruge, and then Amsterdam, where we will fly out from after several days in Amsterdam.
So, do we rent a car in Paris? If so where, so that we can make it out of Paris without too much stress with city traffic (we are staying in the Marais area, but could uber or metro to a car rental site away from the city center)? Or, is it best to train to a site like Giverny to get our rental car? Or are car rentals not so easy in Givergny such that we train there, then after Giverny take the train to Rouen or some other larger town to rent our car? If so, what to do w luggage while seeing Giverny?
Lastly, after Normandy do we best get to Brugge by returning our car somewhere in Normandy, taking the train back to Paris, and then taking the Thalys train to Brugge (Brussels then interconnecting trains)? Or return car in Lille then train to Brugge? Long winded but would appreciate advice w trip planning!
