Beuvron-en-Auge, the former fiefdom of the Harcourt family, is listed among the Most Beautiful Villages in France, and is surely one of the most charming in Pays d'Auge! You can take an enjoyable stroll on its streets, admiring its perfectly restored half-timbered houses from the 17th and 18th centuries, and the delightful manors dotted about the surrounding countryside.

The village is remarkable for its unique central square with its timber-framed covered market, surrounded by beautiful half-timbered houses. The superb Vieux Manoir from the 16th century, with a timber frame and carved beams, is the best-known of these buildings. The old Boule d'Or inn, built in the 18th century, is another must-see.

A space for craft trades containing artisans' workshops has been set up in the old school. A ceramist, a carpenter, a cutler and a porcelain painter can be found there.

Beuvron-en-Auge is located on the Cider Route, 40 kilometres of landscapes and local heritage including stud farms, castles and Norman manors. From Clermont Chapel, you can enjoy a beautiful view of the Dives Valley and the surrounding hills.
