    • New Year's Eve in Rennes

      by mh50 Online Now Dec 15, 2014 at 9:52 AM

      Hello. I am taking my partner as a surprise for New Year to France and we are arriving in Rennes early-mid afternoon on the 31st. We are staying in an apartment, so as to give us a choice over eating in or dining out.
      A few questions, therefore :

      1) We are arriving in to Dinard airport on the morning of the 31st – what is the best way to get from the airport to Rennes ? I understand there is a bus from Pleurtuit or are we better getting the train from St Malo ?
      2) What time are shops open on the 31st (in case we need to buy groceries to cook our dinner that evening) ?
      3) Will restaurants be very busy (as it is New Year’s Eve) and should we therefore book in advance ? (Also : any recommendations ?)
      4) What should we seek out (and what should we avoid ?!?) as midnight strikes ?
      5) Any other suggestions or thoughts on what we should see or do.
      Very many thanks in advance.

    • Mont St Michel/Versailles/Paris

      Hi, need help in planning a better route as we'll be flying in from Bergen, Norway to Orly airport noon arrival in May 2011 and would like to visit Mt St Michel, Versailles and Paris in about 4 days.
      Was thinking of staying in Paris and take train/bus to Rennes/Mt St Michel, back to Paris and the next day from Paris to Versailles and back to Paris again. But it seems that we will spend lots of time traveling~
      Is there any recommended way instead of departing and going back to Paris for 2 continuous days?
      Thank you...

      Getting from Rennes to St Malo

      by madcitygirl Online Now Apr 28, 2010 at 3:49 PM

      We are flying into Paris then taking the fast train to Rennes, then we want to go onto St Malo. The reason we are doing this is because after my husband's conference in St Malo, we want to be able to go back and visit Paris for a few days. So, my question is, what is the best way of getting from Rennes to St. Malo?

      Thank you!

      I have seen the timetable for a bus to the Mont St. Michel from Rennes. But it shows only upto August 30. I will be in Rennes on September 29 around 10:30 in the morning. Will there be a bus to go the Mont?

      I want to come back to Rennes next morning to catch a train to Paris around 11 am. Will there be a bus which will bring me back to catch that train ?

      What will be the weather around that time of the year? What is the best spot to photograph the Mont at sunset or sunrise?

So far they haven't told me what street it is in. Does anyone know where this petrol station is?

      Do you have any idea how to move to Rennes to St Malo by night? I'll be in Rennes at 10.00 pm and the last train leaves at 21.50 :( I have to be in St. Malo at 7.00am to catch a ferry. Maybe buses? Are the cabs very expensive by night? This is a 70 km distance, so I'm afraid I won't afford it. I'll be grateful for any information.
