Visit Cambremer (Normandy, France)
Cambremer is a pretty village to explore, with the 12th century Church of Saint Laurent dominating the centre.
There is a great deal to discover as you explore - a lavoir, an old manor house, several attractive half-timbered buildings and various other houses using the traditional slate covering, all set in the attractive rolling Normandy countryside, making for a very pleasant visit.
The Grange aux Dimes in the village has some lovely carpentry work and is also used for exhibitions during the summer.
Be sure to also visit the park at Jardin du Pays d'Auge which is a large area with a well maintained series of gardens set around a 17th century farm and other buildings and two small museums (one dedicated to old tools and the other to the boulangerie).
During the summer months a 'traditional French market' is held in Cambremer each Sunday morning - a fun and entertaining time to visit with music, traditional dancing etc as well as the market itself.
Visit the Cambremer Tourist Office on Rue Pasteur for local information and activities taking place during your visit.
Nearby a visit to the Chateau de Crevecoeur is also recommended - it is a very modest early-medieval castle with various associated buildings in a carefully maintained garden settting, and very lovely.
Cambremer is perhaps best known as the starting point for the Normandy Cider Route - a route that passes through many of the most picturesque places in this part of Normandy, and a great introduction to the scenery, countryside and towns and villages. Among our favourite villages here is Beuvron, a few kilometres north-east of Cambremer and a listed 'most beautiful village of France'.
The village also is part of the 'Route of Parcs and gardens' of Lower Normandy - visit the garden of 'Armelle et Jacques Noppe' to see a very picturesque garden set around an ancient farm and associated buildings.
