La Route du cidre and Beuvron-en-Auge: fairy-tale in Calvados....

One of my really, really favourite places in France is a part of Normandy. The so called Pays-d`Auge is a magnificent gem of this northwestern area of France, where one can enjoy plenty of local specialties.

This local lady posed very friendly for me in her traditional clothing from Normandy in front of the shop where she is selling local specialties...

My favourite ones are the buchwheat pancakes ("galletes") and cider and peer wine ("cidre" and "poire"). Of course the best place to enjoy both of them is "la Creperie", the house for pancakes:-) As the poster below says, with "galettes" one should drink cider from the area of Pays-dÀuge...I confirm it tastes excellent!

The cute and cozy village Beuvron-en-Auge is where the famous "Route de cidre" starts. Over 40 km one can visit and stop by at local producers for tasting and shopping. The village itself is amazing an d really worth visiting, the half-timbered houses and the flowers everywhere turns it in a very beautiful place. It is one of the 100"plus beaux villages de France" too....
