Introducing Calvados

The département of Calvados (www.calvados-tourisme.com) stretches from Honfleur in the east to Isigny-sur-Mer in the west and includes Caen, Bayeux – world-renowned for its tapestry – and the D-Day beaches. The area is famed for its rich pastures and farm products, including butter, cheese, cider and the distinctive apple brandy calvados, which bears the name of the département.
