Cider, Calvados and Camembert: The Apple Road of Normandy
The Pays d'Auge is not only considered the original type of Normandy, it is also the home of the three "C's": cider, calvados and camembert. Travellers can trace the famous Norman products on the Route du Cidre - and discover some of the most beautiful villages in France.
The route, which is about 40 kilometres long, passes through Beaufour, Bonnebosq and Beuvron en Auge with its countless half-timbered houses. Around 20 producers open their doors along the way, show cellars and presses and let visitors taste their traditionally made products. Best time to visit: end of April, beginning of May during the DPO products market in Cambremer.
