The village of Cambremer
The village of Cambremer is huddled around the Church of Saint Denis and its 12th-century Romanesque tower. On one side is the high street and on the other a former tithe barn which has become an exhibition hall. There is a traditional market in the village on Sunday mornings, at Easter, Pentecost and in July and August.
One of the most beautiful gardens in France
The Sun Garden, the Moon Garden, the Garden of Scents, the Purple Garden, the Garden of Angels… A multitude of themed gardens and moods await during your visit to the Pays d’Auge Gardens. Lose yourself in this spectacular cocktail of colours and scents!
An ancestral distillery
Combining tradition and innovation, the Huet family has been producing and marketing Calvados, ciders and Pommeau de Normandie since 1865, in the heart of the Pays d’Auge. The Pierre Huet estate is made up of 30 hectares of orchards and since 2011, has boasted an innovative distillery powered by wood chips – the only one of its kind in Normandy.
A miraculously preserved medieval castle
Normandy is famous for its impressive array of grand castles dating back to the Middle Ages. Smaller rural châteaux, the seats of local lords or seigneurs, on the other hand, have almost completely disappeared. In the region, Crèvecœur Castle is a unique example not to be missed.
The Cambremer AOC-AOP Festival
In the month of May, when the apple trees in the surrounding orchards are in bloom, the largest festival of AOC (controlled designation of origin) and AOP (protected designation of origin) products in France takes place in Cambremer, and has been for 25 years! More than 10,000 visitors flock to the streets of the village to discover (or rediscover) healthy, tasty and high-quality local products.
