Along the trail of the cider route…
We just had to stop, the beautiful Norman village of Beuvron-en-Auge with is half timbered houses one after the other, was just too pretty to resist.
We were on the trial of the ‘Route du Cidre’, which not only takes in the very rural parts of the Normandy countryside but also weaves you through some lovely quaint French villages.
Gary & I parked up the trusty steed and gave it a rest from twisting lanes & we went to explore.
Strolling through the village is like a stepping back in time, it’s been so lovingly preserved with everyone taking such pride in their little historical piece of France.
The 17th & 18th-century half-timbered buildings are amazing, I think it is because there are just so many is such a small village that you stand in such admiration.
What also makes the village even more endearing are the floral displays on show all the way through. Not only are the window boxes, troughs and barrels full of bloom, the bridges are given their own makeover as well.
As this village is located within the countryside, tractors continue to pass through, leaving you under no illusion that there is a job to be done and orchards to be tended to.
The centre piece of Beuvron-en-Auge has to be the picture postcard covered market, now home to more modern-day sellers, but still very evident of the era it originated from.
If you have the time to enjoy the delights at one cafes or restaurants, crepes are definitely the order of the day.
