Stage 5 : Honfleur

In a land of estu­ar­ies, with its pic­tur­esque narrow streets and slate-covered houses (painted many times by artists), its old port lined with res­taur­ants and its Lieu­ten­ancy, Hon­fleur has that extra some­thing that makes it irresistible.

Spend some time strolling down the main street and pop into the Cave Nor­mande or the Com­pag­nie des Calvados. These two wine and spirit stores stock dozens of Calvados from the dif­fer­ent Normandy terroirs.
