Don't miss the Authentic Normandy tour - Experiment stud farm, cheese farm, cider farm & typical manor
Did you know that Normandy is a land of the Vikings from where William The Conqueror left to conquest England ? But Normandy is much more than that especially in the sub-region called Le Pays d'Auge !
Le Pays d'Auge is full of surprises. What I like in this region is to be lost by my GPS (any signal !)… Those small roads are so charming to discover a valley, a manor, a stud farm, a house overlooking the rolling hills all year round green.
Le Pays d'Auge is the land of horses and stud farms having some racecourses such as Deauville. But it is also the cradle of Norman cheeses: Camembert, Livarot or Pont-L'Evêque, cheeses originating from the villages and towns of the same name.
The local gastronomy is also represented by the Normandy spirits specific to the country: hard cider, apple brandy called Calvados, Pommeau of Normandie and more. . .
The Pays d'Auge is full of little villages where life is so quit. You will appreciate the style of manors and houses.
Enjoy Authentic Normandy !
This tour will start at the agreement place.
On this 100% Pays d'Auge day, we will start from Caen. You will visit one of his stud farms and discover our famous Norman cheeses by visiting the last farm making the Camembert cheese and picking up some variety for a lovely picnic (optional). The place for the picnic would be a surprise!
After the lunch break, you will visit a cider farm to enjoy the local hard cider / the apple brandy 'Calvados' / the Pommeau de Normandie.
Then you will discover the manor house of Coupesarte, one of the most beautiful wooden barracks in the region from the XV century.
On the way back we will go through one cute town.
Enjoy the postcard of Normandy. . . horses and norman cows eating some grass under apple trees with half-timbered house behind !
