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.

Beuvron-en-Auge can boast to be one of “Les Plus Beaux Villages de France” (“the most beautiful villages of France”), and it is easy to see why.

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.

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.

Taking in the Cider Route, Normandy, France

Take your time with the trail as you pass through some fantastic French countryside, along narrow lanes and tree lined roads, just soak it in and enjoy it.

Why Not?

Start creating your own French adventure and discover the enchanting and historic region of Normandy for yourself, by flying  easyJet or British Airways. These are just a couple of options, that you can take to Paris, which is a short hop from Normandy.

One of favourites ways to kick off our trips is to let Brittany Ferries take the strain, sit back, relax and go with the flow. Enjoy a little bit of France as you sail directly into Caen in the heart of Normandy.

Or alternatively jump on Le Shuttle and tour through France under your own steam.
