What is the best way to get direct to Redon from Bayeux? We need to leave in the morning and arrive in Redon late morning or early afternoon? I am thinking a bus or train but not sure if this is possible. If it is not possible can we rent a car in Bayeux and drop it off in Redon? If so, how long of a drive?

Hello. I live in north east England and would like to visit Bayeux, especially to visit the tapestry, but am also interested in seeing local scenery and any nearby chateux or vinyards. Do you know of any organised holidays from England that would take in these interests? I do not want to drive but am Ok with trains or coaches.
Does Mme LaFevre still serve dinners as well as breakfast? My husband, two children, and I visited and stayed at the Family Home in 1998 or 1999 during the first full weekend of July. Not only did we enjoy the wonderful dinners prepared and served by Mme. LaFevre and staff, as well as the Family Home itself - which is made of previous church buildings built in different centuries, but that weekend is the weekend of Bayeux's Renaissance Faire. As it is a true Renaissance town, all enjoyed the food and festivities. Definitely a must do when visiting Normandy!
I have paid and was confirmed by a tour in this website.
Anybody know they have any contact phone number in France?
