Visit an authentic cider farm
The cider is probably the most famous Normandy produce. There are literally hundreds of places where one can learn about the craftsmanship of cider making but nothing compares to an authentic farm located in Pays d'Auge, right at the heart of Normandy countryside. This region already has several AOC (Appellation d'Origine Contrôlée) and quality certifications for its cider or cider-related products. Is there a better place to have sip of cider, Pommeau or Calvados? Probably not.
Admire a rare beast: Vimoutiers Tiger tank
(UPDATE: the tank is undergoing a full restoration process an may not be visible to the public momentarily)
Considered one of the most formidable WWII tanks, the Tiger I was a huge German asset as the war raged on the eastern front but also during the Normandy Campaign. Given the small number of Tiger I tanks made during the war, just a handful have survived the conflict; there are less than ten left in the world and the Vimoutiers Tiger is one of just two that can be seen in France.
Walk around the enchanting Beuvron en Auge
Former stronghold of the Harcourt family, Beuvron en Auge is regarded as one of the most beautiful French villages (fr. Les plus beaux villages de France). Tucked in the Dives marshes, the village has an amazing heritage: the Old Manor (17th century) and a rich collection of half-timbered houses (17th and 18th century); a must-see for all antique lovers.
