My wife and I will be spending five days or so in Normandy at the end of June, and we would like to base ourselves in either Caen or Honfleur. Ideally we'll explore the surrounding area mostly by public transport as I like to have a beer or two at lunch time and I know the French are strict on drink driving. Honfleur sounds delightful, just our sort of place, but Caen, although not so appealing, might be a more logical choice as a transport hub and a more central base. My heart says Honfleur but my head says Caen! Or is there another town we should be considering? We don't know the area at all, so would welcome input from those that do.
