We have already reserved a fast train to Caen . It arrives at 11:59am. We had planned to rent a car and be on our way. However when I look at the car rentals it says they are closed from noon to 2pm. Why is that???? So are the expenses to get the car right away very high? Also which car company is better here? Europcar, Avis, Hertz? We have always used Sixt in Germany, but not available here. Suggestions???
Also we could not find any hotel reservations in Bayeux city, so we have rented at Chateau de Bellefontaine. Has anyone stayed there? Comments? Good or bad???
