Activities

 

Near Giverny

In Honfleur

  • An open air lunch at the Domaine of Apreval, a cider producer by the sea

On the outskirts of Honfleur, on the banks of the Seine estuary, in a setting which brings to mind Impressionist paintings, the Domaine of Apreval makes calvados, ciders, apple liqueurs and perry in the traditional Norman way. Guided tours explain the manufacturing process of the different alcoholic drinks. In season, picnic lunches are organised under the apple trees facing the sea. During the rest of the year, a buffet is available.
