I meant to post recipes but kept putting it off. And then the days kept slipping past.Too many daily tasks,too many parallel lives...The first few words are really hard to write after not posting for a few months. Thanks for your patience, thanks for still sticking by... Taking the oppurtunity of a week-end getaway to resume my blog!
Just inland from Deauville/Trouville railroad station is the charming Normandy countryside known as the “Pays d’Auge”, renowned for its rich dairy produce such as Pont l’Eveque cheese, and for traditional cider and the apple brandy known as Calvados. Houlgate a half an hour drive from there and is more quiet,especially in the early fall.It has many early 20th century villas, which add an old world charm to the town.
There are many places to visit on a trip to the Coast of Lower Normandy. Dives sur Mer is at a short walking distance(about 3kms) from Houlgate and really pleasant if you stroll around the boardwalk...
Don't miss Guillaume Le Conquerant village. You will gasp at the sight of it. A lot of artists find their inspiration there.
Don't miss the famous covered market.
Don't miss Dupont Patisserie for their memorable caramels, sablés aux noisettes, madeleines and refined chocolates.
