      I am arriving into Caen from Portsmouth with luggage. I plan to spend the day at the museum in Caen before taking a train to Bayeux later in the day. Is there a place where I can store my luggage at the rail station or elsewhere?

    • Ferry to Caen, day trip

      by jazmo Online Now Aug 21, 2013 at 6:43 AM

      Hello! I'm new to this forum and have some questions about a possible day trip to Caen in October.

      I'm planning on getting the overnight ferry from Portsmouth due to arrive in Ouistreham at 6.45am. I've not taken the ferry before, does anyone know how long it takes after docking to exit the ferry? Also will anywhere be open at that time for breakfast or are we better off driving to to the center of Caen? How long in the drive from the post to the city centre? Is it easy to park?

      As I am planning a day trip, the return ferry back to Portsmouth is at 16.30. Assuming we have to get to the port an hour before hand, is that enough time to visit the castle, eat croissants and have a wander around the town?

      Any tips or advice on ferry travel to Caen and what is achievable during such a short trip is greatly appreciated!

      Thanks,

    • Caen Hotel Recommendation

      by cl3150 Online Now Jun 15, 2012 at 2:11 AM

      We will be staying in Caen in early September, driving through the area, using Caen as our base, as it is rather central. We are looking for a nice hotel there. So far, I have looked at the Ivan Vautier, which looks very nice, but it is located away from the center and are told its a 20 minute walk to get there. We would like to be within a few minutes walk of the center so that we don't need to drive every time we leave our hotel. I also looked at the Adagio, but it is difficult to tell whether it is a full-service hotel, or a self-service apartment. I also looked at a hotel in Cabourg, but their prices were in the 500 Euro per night range. I'd like to hear whatever suggestions anyone can offer who knows this area and hopefully the hotels.

      Thanks.

    • Help! Has anyone travelled to Caen/Normandy in November???

      by kkjohnson521 Online Now Jun 22, 2011 at 8:08 PM

      I am planning a trip for my extended family. We have 12 people in our group. (ages 18-70). We would like to visit Paris, Normandy (DDay Beaches) and Mont St. Michel.

      The only time we can travel together is over the Thanksgiving holidays.

      I keep getting mixed information regarding the weather. How cold is it? How much daylight? (i've heard from as little as 3 hours of daylight to 8 hours.)

      I would very much appreciate anyone who has been there in November/December to share their experience with me... I'm so confused. Would you go at that time or put it off for a few years?

      Thank you in advance,

      KKJ

      I want to visit and pray at Fr. Belliere's grave, I have been told if I take the bus from Cean to Langrune I just look for the church with the big steeple and the grave yard is next to it. Can anyone verify if this is correct, if this is indeed where he is buried and can I visit the cemetery or is it locked and will I have to prearrange with the church (I do not know its name) to visit his grave, any assistance is greatly appreciated, Kevin

      HI - Hostel in Caen

      by Drugness Online Now Apr 2, 2011 at 2:24 PM

      Hello all
      Has anyone tried booked accomodation or stayed in this hostel?
      I was on the HI hostel website, and this hostel doesn't take online bookings. So i emailed the hostel and they told me (in broken English) that i had to ring 4 days before my visit to reserve my bed. For me, this is a bit un-nerving since i am worried there will be no beds free if i leave it that late to visit.
      Any thoughts on this anyone?

      by mrsmmr Online Now Mar 11, 2009 at 6:54 AM

      Hi My OAP mother and her equally elderly friend are flying from dublin to attend my brothers weddings in Caen. One option is to fly to Paris and get a train from the st lazare ? train station. That would require them navigating through the paris metro and being able to figure out what platform their train will leave from. They have no french.
      My two questions are, is there a direct train from Rennes train station? It might be a bit easier to figure out then paris and they can fly to Rennes. Also I notice that caen has a airport, does anyone know if they are any flights into caen airport from the UK ? They are travelling in July.
      Thankyou very much.
