Caen, Beuvron-en-Auge, Honfleur and Crevecour-en-Auge

On Sunday we wandered around Caen before having dinner. It has quite an interesting history as William the Conqueror had a castle in the city and he and his wife, Matilda, are buried there. We looked into the Abbaye des Hommes where William is buried.
 On Monday, 17th April, we drove to a gorgeous little village called Beuvron-en-Auge. It is a tiny village with lots of half timbered houses and a lovely little cafe with yummy coffee.

 We then drove the slow way all along the coast towards Bonfleur. Stopped to check out the windy beach and these lovely houses.

 Honfleur is another gorgeous place to visit and really looks like Holland! We loved seeing the outside and inside of the very old timber church too.

We then headed to Crevecour-en-Auge and enjoyed visiting this medieval farm and castle. Lots of information here too about our friend, William the Conqueror.
