We recently had a wonderful first French holiday based in a rented house in Montreuil-Sur-Mer, with days out to the seaside, and would like to do the same in Normandy next year.
Bayeux seems to be our kind of town and we would like to be walkable to the centre, with days out to theme parks (like festyland), the coast, and Paris. Parking looks tight on streetview; would we struggle to get safely parked in the evening after days out?
Are there any other options we have overlooked? Our budget is about 500 euros for a week, and will be driving down from Calais. Many thanks for any suggestions.
