We are considering getting a rental car during our trip in later half of June. There is my wife, myself, and our 3 year old son. We have not planned our trip yet but are deciding to take it slow over two weeks or 14 nights in normandy and brittany and probably loire valley. I think a quarter of the reason alone has to do with me wanting to get an early morning view of mont st-michel before the crowd.
Main question: How easy it is to drive around? Does GPS work well in these places because frankly without GPS I am almost as good as driving with my eyes closed.
Other than the obvious convenience and flexibility we want to be able to explore places off the beaten track where public transport could be an issue with some places like some of the medieval fortresses and villages. We're not intending to follow any guided tours as well - purely F&E with lots of planning.
Second question: Would you suggest just sticking with the same car and driving from normady right through to brittany or is the distance long enough such that a train would be more comfortable and less tiring?
Third question: Any drivers driving at home on left-hand side that found it easy/ok/hard to drive on right-hand side in france? I am comfortable on the road and have done some road trips but never on the opposite side so am finding it a potential worry.
