Private Half-day cheese and cider tour

What to expect

Private full day tours are designed that you enjoy the best of Normandy food, only with your group and Etienne, your guide. Therefore you will be treated very exlusively. We can then make detours to see what you have seen on your guide book next to where we are. We can stop to take pictures whenever you, want. 

You will also be able to enjoy picturesque countryside in perfect silence or take a nap on your neighbour's shoulder as you know him/her.

The program for such a day is slightely different. We usually have more time to enjoy the cute calves at the farm or enjoy old brandy at the cider breweries; and that matters! 

Time is the only thing that we all have in the same quantities. We also say that time is money. I understand that during holidays there is a need to optimize your time. Does optimizing mean going fast and tick boxes? Has not a 45 years old brandy taken the time to enrich itself? 

It is the same with your holidays? Taking time in a definite schedule is key to make most of it!!

Half day tour is the perfect compromize between going deep in a subject and flying over it... We will go and see a farm-sized dairy or a industrial one (as you wish) and then we will discover a neat farm that make guenuine ciders and brandy. before finishing in a cute village, we will enjoy the quintessence of apple based brandy, the calvados!!

You'll be back at your hotel in time for diner.
