The Basse-Normandie region
Calvados belongs to the region of Basse-Normandie and is surrounded by the departments of Seine-Maritime, Eure, Orne and Manche. To the north is the English Channel. Calvados includes the Bessin area, the Pays d'Auge and the area known as the "Suisse normande" ("Norman Switzerland").
Agriculture dominates the economy of Calvados. The area is known for producing butter, cheese, cider and Calvados, the apple-based spirit that takes its name from the area.
Caemenbert, Brie and Pont L'Eveque are just three of hundreds of cheeses that originate in Calvados and the surrounding area.Truly delicious!

"Lovely retreat for two in quiet French village"
My wife and I have just returned from holiday in this lovely typically french
gite/cottage. It has been tastefully decorated and it has a unique charm of its own - everything you need for a perfect stay. Saint-Sever is well situated for places of interest, we did Bayeau, Mont St Michel, the Normandy beaches and other local towns and villages. Granville on the coast is well worth a visit. If you want to escape your "mother tongue" for a while and mix with the locals then this could be for you.
