Cider Route in Normandy.

I will have the better part of a day to explore the Cider Route in Normandy. Any suggestions of places I shouldn't miss would be appreciated. I have been to Normandy before, but have never done the Cider Route.

Thanks!

Have you consulted the Michelin Green Guide? Great coverage, IMO.

We did a couple of cideries but really enjoyed the fromageries we found along the way. Not really the "Cider Route'" but just back roads from Honfleur to Bayeux we strung together using the Michelin Green Guide.

Hi,

We did the backroads between Honfleur and Bayeux as noted above.

We really enjoyed the towns of Beuvron en Auge as well as Cambremer. We did tastings at Pierre Huet (Cambremer) and also at a smaller place called Ferme Billy (our kids loved petting the donkeys there).

Very close to Pierre Huet is the jardin du pays d'auge - really enjoyed visiting this garden.

Thanks for the suggestions, folks. The "fromageries" sound good.
