After our visit to Chateau Le Breuil-en-Auge, our coach stopped for quick visit to Beuvron-en-Auge. Situated to the west of Lisieux and 25 kilometres east of Caen in the Calvados department of Normandy, Beuvron-en-Auge is one of the most beautiful villages of France.
The house’s are half-timbered of which Normandy is famous for. The village is small and I think at last count there are roughly 250 people living there. Of course we could have some more cider or cheese, perhaps a coffee, however we chose to wander around take photos and breathe in the history.
We found the most amazing shop full of scarves, lace, lace edged ,oh so many to choose from. If you didn’t know by now I love a scarf. It changes the whole outfit and it is handy for spills of food and drink that would normally fall on your clothes. I could have stayed in this shop for hours perhaps days. One of the women from our tour purchased a stunning red one and wore it that night at dinner. I wished now that I had gone ahead and purchased one for myself. Oh well I will have to go back.
Many of the houses are now shops selling the famous cider and calvados or cafe’s and restaurants. Lots of antique shops also. I wish we had more time to get lost in these shops.
In the first two weeks of May the town features a flower festival mostly geraniums a speciality – and a very large cider festival is held at the end of October. Both events are great times to visit the town if possible. We were there end of August and the geraniums were still in full flower.
Do you think I might like to go back and stay for a few days? Yes!
France is much more than Paris or Nice. So many delightful and quaint villages to visit and explore and Beuvron-de-Auge is right up the top of the list. Normandy has certainly won my heart.
