The area is famous for Calvados (apple liquor), cider and pommeau (sweet apple wine), all made with local apples. The countryside is beautiful all year with the blossom in spring, apples in summer and an array of colour in autumn making it exceptionally attractive at any time of the year. There are many cheeses made locally too, with the most famous being Camembert, just a short drive to the village of the same name, home to the factory, which is well worth a visit. There is also a lovely fairytale castle in the region and many more things to see and do, including a cycle/walk path along an old railway line into the local main town of Bernay.
