When to go
Spring is the ideal season in which to appreciate Calvados and the Pays d'Auge in particular. The countryside and parks are in bloom; the country houses and châteaux can be visited without the crowds, and the touching celebrations marking the Normandy landings can be experienced.
Activities increase on the coast until reaching their climax in July and August. Unsurprisingly, most of the activities revolve around water sports.
The Deauville American Film Festival, in September, marks the end of the tourist season, since autumn and winter are relatively rainy here.
