Visit Beuvron (Normandy, France)
Beuvron-en-Auge is one of the 'most beautiful villages of France', situated to the west of Lisieux and 25 kilometres east of Caen, in the Calvados department of Normandy. Some 'most beautiful villages' are more beautiful than others and in my opinion Beuvron-en-Auge is one of the best.
Almost every house here is built in the gorgeous half-timbered style for which Normandy is famous and those that aren’t serve as an interesting contrast to highlight the splendour of the others, though these too are usually very attractive buildings.
The buildings in Beuvron typically date back to the 17th century and there is a beautiful manor house dating back to the 15th century. Take a close look at the manor house, classified as a monument historique, as the detail on the woodwork is superb, with faces and patterns carved into it.
The village largely lies along one main street but this really is a beautiful street, even more so because almost every pavement edge has been beautifully planted with a mass of rudbeckias, nicotianias, salvias and much more.
The village Church of Saint Marin is also built in the style typical of the region.
Beuvron-en-Auge has been awarded two flowers in the ‘village fleuri’ competition though I thought it deserved more. In the centre of the village is a small but very attractive square, also filled with flowers.
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.
Normandy as a whole contains many houses with the same half-timbered architectural design, but Beuvron-en-Auge is surely one of the best examples.
Don't forget to stop in the village long enough to have a glass of calvados after enjoying a wander around the town.
Beuvron-en-Auge is part of the 'Normandy cider route'. This cider route is a marked route that passes through several villages and passes by 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).
