We will be staying in Normandy next month and would like to visit Versailles by car. I have done a little research and it would appear to be approx 3.5 hours drive from Villedieu les Poeles - the village we are staying in. I just wanted to ask the advice of somebody who may have driven this route in the past. Is it advisable to do this as a day trip? 7 or 8 hours drive in one day seems quite a drive. The train is quicker - but very expensive.
