Why we've chosen Domaine de la Cour au Grip

If you really want to immerse yourself in the apple-centric culinary culture of the Calvados département, why not bed down in, erm, a cider barrel? A 10,000-litre vessel has been furnished with windows and a comfortable double bed; with the wooden staves curving over your head, it’s more like slumbering in a traditional gypsy caravan; there’s a private bathroom nearby in case nature calls at night. And there’s plenty of nature to call: you’re in the rural Pays d’Auge, with horses grazing amid the apple orchards. The beautiful half-timbered house of the domaine is nearby, with two B&B rooms available, and a pair of self-catering gîtes complete the options.
