I'm traveling with my wife to France in November and would like to get a good 10-11 day overview of Northern France and Loire Valley. Was looking at flying into Paris and taking a train to Reuen, spending the night, than picking up a rent a car the next morning.
From Reuen thinking:
3 Nights Bayux (or one night Honfleur, and two in Bayux?)
2 Nights Mont St. M (on island or off?)
1 Night Dinen (is this worth it or should we just head to Lorie?)
4/5 Nights Amboise
Was thinking I could drop car in Amboise and take a train to Bordeaux or drive to Bordeaux, where we are catching a boat.
I'm open to any and suggestions. Any insights about traveling in early November? Should I book places to stay or wing it? We travel light so I'm not opposed to moving around more, but my wife hurt her back, so the longer we can stay places the better.
