    Visit the laverie, a very old fashioned laundry

    Laverie in Beuvron
    2 more images

    You don't have to take your laundry with you but you could. This is still a working laverie although we didn't see anyone use it. It is one of the best kept laveries we've seen.

    It's fun to follow the little canal through town. It goes along a cow pasture at one point, has bridges in several places, goes right through town eventually, goes underground where you lose it and then appears in time to see the laverie. The tiny building in front is it. There are steps down into it and you are free to go down if you like.

    There are two additional photos, one of the inside. Click on the large photo to get the others.

    Always visit the church

    Eglise St. Martin 1642

    Churches are places of peace and they are also often a place to cool off on a very hot summer day or a place to warm up on a cold winter day. They often contain excellent art and also some wonderful naif art. If you happen in one when there is a rehearsal for a future event, you may hear some marvelous music. If you visit a church on a Saturday, you may find yourself in a wedding.

    The church yard is a place for great photographs and to study history and botany. You can meet people and friendly animals in the churchyard and you may find magnificent views there too.

    If it's Sunday, you can even go to church.

    Degustation - Tasting

    Cider Bar
    1 more image

    You can spend a lot of wonderful time in France tasting wine. However, in Normandy, the thing to do is to taste cider, Calvados and Pommeau. Normandy is famous for its apples and if you are there in the autumn as we were last Fall, you can eat almost everything with apples in it some way or other . . . all good.

    There are caves for cider tastings and it is nothing like the cider you drank as a child. Then there is Calvados (name of a region and of a drink). It is a very strong brandy made from cider and is considered a means to cleanse one's stomach so one may continue eating even more of the very rich cream-laden Norman cuisine. They serve it between courses in tiny glasses or if you are lucky, on a small scoop of apple sorbet.

    Pommeau is an aperitif made from the "must" of cider pressings. We didn't try that one, but it's well liked so if you enjoy new experiences, give it a try.

    Walk and take pictures

    Beuvron-en-Auge, typical house
    4 more images

    Beuvron is the perfect place to take pictures. Every house and shop is an architectural gem. The central market has been enclosed and contains shops, galleries and a restaurant. However, the outside retains its market look. The rest of the village looks as though it hasn't changed in a thousand years.

    There is a little park where you can sit and soak up the ambience and the square is surrounded by cafe's and restaurants where you can sit with a coffee or a glass of wine (or cider) and just enjoy watching the people.

    I've included a few more photos so click on the photo to get the rest of the pictures.

    WALK THE VILLAGE

    Beuvron-En-Auge

    This is a MUST DO in a small Village like this.

    The village mainly consists of the main street, so not too many streets to wander around.
    Most of the building's are half-timbered, and have been painted in different colours and are well kept.
    Now, add in all the planter boxes filled with Geraniums, and the street gardens, you now have one very pretty village. The village has been awarded two flowers in the ‘village fleuri’ competition. There are some interesting shops, I liked the Antiques, and for food, a Creperie.
    You can even buy your cider direct from the grower!

    Les Vieilles Maison de France

    See a very special house of the village.

    VMF is an organisation which has objectives very similar to those of the National Trust, English Heritage and CADW in the UK.

    It is not only concerned with the preservation of ancient monuments and historical buildings but with the wider aspects of protecting a nation's heritage from neglect, unplanned development, urban sprawl and the degradation of countryside and country life.

    It was on our visit to Beuvron that we noticed, for the first time, their disticntive blue plaque on the gate post of a particularly beautiful old house that we were admiring.
    This one, like many others that have the umbrella protection of VMF, is privately owned.
    It is a masterpiece of craftsmanship in design, artistic embellishments amd construction.

    VMF was founded in 1958 and has French Goverment support as well as more than 20,000 supporting/subscribing members.

    The Manor house

    The Manor House, dating back to the 15th century, is a rather interesting building. It is classified a historic monument. On close inspection, I saw that it had faces and patterns carved into it.
