A few days in Normandy

Jump to last reply

My wife and I have rented a house in the SW of France for two weeks. But before returning home, we have decided to spend 4 extra days in Normandy, a section of France we have not been to. Our current thinking is to train from Sarlat to Bordeaux to Paris and then into Normandy. We are torn between going to Rouen or Caen and doing a day trip from there into the country side after exploring the city. We plan on 4 days including travel, ending up in Paris for our return flight.

Any suggestions?

Is either city we have selected better than the other for exploring and experiencing life in Normandy? Or would you suggest another?

We have not been to Omaha Beach or any of the Normandy historic beaches, and the urge to see them is not paramount. I would rather visit Mont St Michel.

It is going to be late September, will room reservations be necessary, or will we be able to arrive in the city and find a room?

Thank you for you insights,

Scott
