Normandy is Massive. So is Brittany.

You maybe have time for 2 bases, in the space of 7 days....

Check out www.bandbnormandie.com. We based there with a car and easily traveled to MSM, then around the bay to Cancale in Brittany, also to Bayeux, about 12 miles, and the D Day beaches, around 20 miles from Odile's farm. It was wonderful. You can drift along the coastline from MSM and around to Avranche, then return to Bayeux for dinner. We stopped at little towns along the way, buying cheeses, and Calvados and any manner of items. That was one of our best ever trips. Be sure and get a GPS before you leave, learn to use it, and save to favorites any addresses you might need. La Ferme has no real address so we used GoogleEarth, zoomed into the driveway entrance using their directions, and saved the latitude and longitude into the GPS. We drove right to it.
