5 days in Bayeux, Mont. St. Michel & Chinon - Make sense?

Jump to last reply

Our (2 couples) trip is planned for mid-March, 2015. Following 5 nights in Paris, we plan to take a train on Sunday a.m. to Bayeux. We'll do a D-Day tour on Monday and spend Tuesday a.m. in Bayeux. That afternoon we'll have a rental car to drive to Mont St. Michel for an overnight. We'll spend the a.m in MSM, then drive to Chinon . Overnight there and on Thursday, we will make our way through the area, Amboise, and eventually up to Orly airport late in the afternoon to return the car rental and overnight there before our a.m flight back to New York on Friday.

A few questions:
Will the train be so crowded on a Sunday that we would need to have reservations? Is it cheaper if we book in advance and how far in advance?

For the car rental, we really don't need it til Tuesday when we drive to MSM, but I understand there are limited rental options in Bayeux, especially when we want to return the car to Orly. Would it be better if we took the train to Caen and rented the car there? Will that be a problem on a Sunday?

Thanks for any advice!
