Tasting Cider and Calvados at Pierre Huet in Cambremer, France

Guess where we ended up when we followed this sign!

Following the Cider Route of FranceIf you guessed Cambremer, you’re right, and while we were there we also got to find out why it’s called the Route du Cidre.

The BEST pear cider in the world, so far.

As it was a weekend in June we stayed in Rouen for three nights, venturing out on various drives during the days. Our first stop of the day was Jumieges Abbey ruins; next we tried for Honfleur on the coast. I had really wanted to see the little town but it was so busy that we couldn’t find parking anywhere and had to move on to Trouville-sur-Mer. From there we went off on what our ‘Backroads of France’ guidebook called the ‘Cider & Cheese’ route. This was our cider portion; in Livarot we discovered some of the best cheeses in France!Rouen to Camenbert Route

  1. This sounds awesome – so jealous! I’m also a big fan of French perry (Poire), and Brittany France cidre (not so much the sour & funky Normandy ones). At least in Seattle WA I’ve seen a number of French cidre and Poire options, so definitely shop around near you at specialty bottle shops.
