Plongez dans les paysages typiques de la Normandie et dans le superbe patrimoine historique et culinaire du Pays d'Auge. Vous apprécierez les paysages colorés des prairies vertes et humides où paissent les vaches qui produisent les meilleurs crèmes, beurres et fromages normands.

Au printemps, il faut voir les vastes vergers de pommiers en fleurs et la campagne est parsemée de maisons à colombages et à toit de chaume, de fermes et de haras secrets, souvent cachés par un rideau d'arbres, qui élèvent leurs yearlings pour les courses hippiques.

Le Pays d'Auge, c'est aussi de longues plages de sable et des stations balnéaires comme Deauville et Trouville, toutes deux fondées au XIXe siècle, qui se sont développées grâce à la mode des bains de mer sous Napoléon III. C'est aussi le lieu de culte dédié à Sainte Thérèse de Lisieux qui attire chaque année des milliers de pèlerins.
Immerse yourself in Normandy's typical landscapes, superb historical and culinary heritage in a district called Pays d'Auge. You will enjoy the colourful lanscapes of green and humid meadows where cows graze to produce the best Norman cream, butter and cheeses.

In spring, the vast apple orchards must be seen when their flowers bloom and the countryside is dotted with half-timbered and thatched-roof houses and farms, and secret stud farms, often hidden by a curtain of trees raise their yearlings for horse-racings.

The Pays d'Auge also has long sandy beaches and seaside resorts such as Deauville and Trouville, both founded in the 19th century, which developed as a result of the fashion for sea bathing under Napoleon III. It is also the place of worship dedicated to Saint Theresa of Lisieux which attracts thousands of pilgrims every year.

The Pays d'Auge is a vast territory and we will not be able to cover all the places. The city of Honfleur is a place not to be missed all year round. The tour can be personalized according to your interests and the days and periods of opening of the sites.

You will have the choice to stroll through the small fishing port of Honfleur where many famous painters such as Turner, Boudin, Monet have succumbed to the charms of Honfleur or some villages (Beuvron-en-Auge, Cambremer) with half-timbered houses and thatched roofs nestled in the valleys with many churches, cemeteries, manors, stud-farms, wash-houses, natural and medical springs where hiking is very pleasant.

You can also experience a typical market with a basket in hand early in the morning to discover authentic Norman products and receipes such as homemade caramel cream, salty or sweet pancakes « crepes », , artisanal sausages …

This tour can be completed either with a visit of a cheese factory or with a brandy distillery "Calvados" or a cider farm.
