What to expect in Paris/Loire/Normandie late October early Nov.

Jump to last reply

Can people who have been at that time of year let me know if there is anything I should take into account? Festival or activities that are over crowded? Any Holidays that everything closes? Do any sites shut down at certain dates?
Best advice for what to pack? What to wear? Things I need to know?

I will be traveling with my hubby who has some mobility issues (we are in our 40's) and my 70 year old Mom.

We plan 10-12 days in Paris including Versailles and Giverny. Is this a good amount of time? Too much time for Paris? We think we want to see the Loire and Normandie first then go to Paris.....Thoughts on this idea?

We would like to see Strasburg (hubby just added this to the list today), Chenonceau, Chambord castles, Mont St. Michel (Stay on the Mont or across the water from it???) Honfleur, D-Day Beaches (Juno Beach), Rouen maybe....Etretat. Maybe? Thinking of going to Vimy Ridge to see the Canadian Monument to fallen soldiers.....We think we are also going to Disney for 2 days. (My hubby and I are big Disney fan) Please don't hold that against us....LOL

My MOM seriously want to stay in a castle one night.....Recommendations???? I really want to make this happen for her even if it's a little extravagant.

We have 21 to 25 days to spend in these areas including Paris......We will rent an apartment in Paris.

What order would you see these sights? We are thinking of renting a car for everything except Paris.....Would this be a good idea or are trains better for this kind of trip?

I am in the really early planning stages for the last 2 weeks in October and the first week in November 2015. Any help to set me off in the right direction is appreciated.

I feel like Paris I can handle but for everything else, I am a little lost. Help.....
