Embark on a Delectable Normandy Gourmet Tour from Bayeux

Looking for an exceptional Normandy tour from Bayeux? Your search ends here as you prepare to indulge in the tantalizing flavors of Normandy!

Convenient Pickup from Your Bayeux Accommodation

We'll begin your day by picking you up from your accommodation in Bayeux or the surrounding area. Meet your friendly English-speaking driver/guide, who will provide you with the day's program and itinerary. Step into our comfortable, air-conditioned Mercedes minivan and set off on a private small group gourmet full-day tour through the picturesque Normandy countryside.

Begin Your Exquisite Normandy Gourmet Tour

Normandy is renowned for its delectable cheese and cider, two culinary treasures adored by food enthusiasts. One such cheese is the famous Camembert, beloved throughout France. Soft, moist, and creamy, Camembert is a true delight for the taste buds. Originating in the 18th century, it is traditionally made from unpasteurized cow's milk. While modern production has mostly transitioned to pasteurized milk for safety and export reasons, the flavors and heritage remain intact.

Our Normandy Gourmet tour takes you beyond the bustling tourist sites, immersing you in the authentic traditions of the region. We'll first visit a renowned cheese-making facility nestled in the heart of the picturesque Pays d'Auge countryside. This idyllic area boasts the perfect climate and agricultural conditions for crafting Protected Designation of Origin cheeses from Normandy.

Normandy cows, adorned with white coats and brown markings, graze in lush pastures for half the year and retreat to cozy barns during winter. Their diet consists solely of grass and naturally supplemented fodder. The use of raw milk from Norman cows guarantees the finest taste and pleasure, ensuring a safe and exceptional cheese experience.

Raw milk, untouched by heat treatment during processing, represents the purest form of milk, reminiscent of the traditional farms of yesteryear. It captures the unique flavors of the land, known as "terroir," resulting in a nuanced taste that may vary depending on the season.

Tour a Cheese-Making Facility and Savor Local Cheeses

Our immersive concept allows visitors to explore cheese workshops through glass-protected galleries, providing insights into every stage of cheese production, from milk arrival to packaging. After the informative tour, treat yourself to a delightful cheese tasting session featuring individual platters of Livarot, Pont l'Evêque, Normandy Camembert, and Neufchâtel, paired with bread and cider. A small shop is available should you wish to bring back some local delicacies, although cheese is best enjoyed on-site!

Discover One of France's Most Beautiful Villages

Beuvron en Auge, ranked among the most beautiful villages in France, offers a picturesque postcard-like experience of a traditional Normandy village. As the stronghold of the d'Harcourt family and a stop along the Cider and Calvados trails, the village enchants visitors with its half-timbered houses, historic covered market, and charming manor houses. Take your time to wander through the village, immersing yourself in its timeless beauty and personal discoveries.

Indulge in a Gourmet Lunch at a Michelin-Starred Restaurant (not included in price - can be purchased as an extra during booking process)

Since this is a gourmet tour, we've selected one of the region's most renowned restaurants for your lunch experience. The Pavé d'Auge restaurant, an esteemed One Star Michelin establishment, awaits you in the heart of Beuvron en Auge. Relish in a feast for the senses as you savor delectable dishes amidst an authentic dining room brimming with charm and enchantment. After lunch and some leisurely time to explore the village, we'll embark on the final leg of our journey.

Conclude with a Guided Tasting of Apple Brandy

Our last stop takes us to a local Calvados distillery nestled in the heart of the enchanting Pays d'Auge region. This family-owned estate boasts a rich heritage of producing world-famous Cider, Calvados, and Pommeau of Normandy. Spanning 30 hectares of orchards, the estate cultivates over 25 apple varieties, including standard trees and cordons trees. With over a century of expertise, the family has garnered global acclaim for their meticulous art of blending.

Following a brief introduction to the distillery's diverse products, you'll have the opportunity to participate in a guided tasting of these delightful local spirits (tasting fees not included). Revel in the intricate flavors and fragrances that make each sip an extraordinary experience. As the tasting concludes, we'll make our way back to your accommodation in or near Bayeux, bringing an end to this thrilling day trip.

Prepare for a day filled with culinary delights and unforgettable experiences on our Normandy Gourmet Tour. Join us as we explore the flavors and traditions that define this enchanting region.
