By far the prettiest of the Pays d’Auge villages is BEUVRON-EN-AUGE, 7km north of the N13 halfway between Lisieux and Caen. It consists of an oval central square, ringed by a glorious ensemble of multicoloured half-timbered houses, including the yellow and brown sixteenth-century Vieux Manoir. Normandy as a whole contains many houses with this architectural design, but Beuvron-en-Auge still remains a ‘not to be missed’ example. And don’t forget to stop long enough to have a glass of calvados while you are enjoying a wander around the town.
Also take a look at the pretty little church and Chapelle de Clermont in the village.

Flower and Cider Festival
The first week of May features the flower festival in the town – 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.
Auberge de La Boule d'Or
Situated in the village is the eighteenth-century Auberge de la Boule d’Or (tel 02.31.79.78.78; €40–55; closed Jan, plus Tuesday evening & Wednesday Oct–June), offers three attractive bedrooms. The very centre of the square is taken up by the Pavé d’Auge restaurant (tel 02.31.79.26.71; closed Monday May–Aug), where menus featuring chicken and andouille in cider or salmon start at €24.
The Cider Route
Beuvron-en-Auge is part of the ‘Normandy cider route’. This is a marked route which passes through several villages including several cider producers in the region – you are free to sample the products! (Look out for signs marked ‘Route du cidre’ with a picture of an apple).
