We (3 adults) will be spending 17 days in France during June. Our plan is to go from Paris to St Malo (MSM) for 2 nights, to Loire for 5 nights, then back to Paris.
I know there's no easy way to MSM unless you bus it or have a car, so my question is (and yes I know everyone will have varying opinions) - I've been thinking of taking a train out of Paris somewhere (i.e. Versailles, Le Mans, etc) to pick up a rental and then use that for the whole week or to train most everywhere and do day rentals when needed? My thought wold be to renr a car someplace in-between Paris and Tours for easier pickup and return.....and not driving in Paris. Thanks.
