Lazy Normandy loop: Is it enough?

Coordinating a trip to France in mid-May with my old college roommate and need your help again. Want to see some wonderful sights but still leave plenty of room for serendipity (she's a poet; I'm an artist).
After painfully narrowing things down, this is what we have:

DAY 1: Chateau de la Rapee, near Gisors,
(1 hr from CDG) for jetlag recuperation
DAYS 2-4: B&B in Gefosse, NW of Bayeux
DAYS 5-7: B&B in St. Pierre de Plesguen, E of Dinan
DAY 8: Drop car in Rennes and take train to Paris. (Or drive to Chartre?)
DAYS 8-10: Paris--Hotel les Jardins du Luxembourg

Of course, we'll be using the B&Bs as our home bases to explore the countrside. Any little "finds" in this area to add to the obvious tourist sites? Any comments on the itinerary greatly appreciated!

Sounds as solid as if you had planned dozens such trips. Gisors is cool.
And DO go to Chartres. Awesome.

Best wishes,

Rex

May I ask how you came up with the names of these particular B&B's you list? Is there a good website or any book or directory that a person can get?

Charlene,
We used Karen Brown's "FRANCE Charming Bed & Breakfasts"(www.karenbrown.com). My friend had used one of her guidebooks on a trip to England and was delighted. We did have a little trouble getting in with less than two months notice, though.
