Lively culture and among France’s richest heritage: Calvados has so many stories to tell.
Calvados is France’s third-ranking département for its number of historic monuments! Are you keen on architecture? Come and simply marvel at our splendid coastal villas, the discreet manor houses of the Pays d’Auge, or the fortified farms of the Bessin area. Or would you rather get back to nature? Meet with the enthusiastic green fingered experts that are behind our remarkable gardens. Or set off in the footsteps of some of the greatest names in French literature and Impressionist art, or succumb to the poetry of intense musical experiences and colourful live performances.
From the Basilica of St. Thérèse of Lisieux to the D-Day Landing Beaches, from the Mémorial de Caen to the Bayeux Tapestry, Calvados is a history book in its own right.
