We are a couple who got free tickets to Beauvais for week in June. We don't want to go to Paris. We want to hire a car and spend a relaxing week in the countryside and coast. We have been to Normandy before and seen all the WWII sites, Bayeux, Honfleur etc. etc. We would like to go somewhere different, but don't mind some of the same places.
I am wondering what else is good in Normandy, or should we head for Brittany (not been before)?
We like walks - fairly strenuous - forest, cliff, beach. Culture especially lovely architecture, cheese and cider, and anything quirky not touristy.
We probably would like to stay one night in Beauvais as we arrive fairly late, then have two or three night stays in different locations, returning to Beauvais for the last night. But we don't mind staying all in one location if it is worth it.
All suggestions welcome.Edited: 10 April 2012, 04:34
