Eure is Normandy, a stone's throw from Paris like the sea. A proximity reinforced by a dense network of road and rail infrastructures. The department is thus just one hour from the capital, by road and rail. Combining nature, culture and the pleasure of living, Eure has the discreet charm of these departments which abound in architectural, historical and tourist treasures, to be discovered around villages, at the crossroads of paths or in the heart of cities. The cuisine of the Eure region gives pride of place to Norman products: milk, cheese, cream, and of course apples and their derivatives, cider and calvados. This destination also has a strong breeding tradition, so it is not difficult to find excellent meat, especially beef. Eure is not to be outdone among the Normandy departments for cheese production. In addition to the traditional Camemberts, pont-l'évêque, livarot, there are some cheese specialities here, such as the pavé du Plessis, in Noards in Lieuvin, caugéen, delicious goat's cheese produced near Évreux. A Norman speciality par excellence, cider is widely present in the Eure. There are several categories of ciders: sweet or raw depending on its alcohol content; corked, dry or sparkling depending on its fermentation. The apple is also used to produce calvados, a brandy made from the fermentation of cider, but also pommeau (an aperitif measuring 16 to 18 degrees)

When to go to the Eure? Normandy's "green lung" is particularly well suited for hiking all year round, with hundreds of kilometres of marked trails, in the forest, along the river, in the fields... Not to mention all the local itineraries to meet the villages of Europe. Six greenways, 140 kilometres in total, criss-cross the department in all directions, rehabilitating abandoned railways, towpaths or forest paths. Well equipped with adapted surfaces, picnic and parking areas, bicycle rental or lending in nearby accommodation, they are all reasons to cycle around the Eure, with family or friends. For lack of beaches, this destination hides some beautiful leisure and outdoor activities, the most famous of which is Poses: a huge artificial lake equipped with playgrounds, water sports, restaurants to enjoy the summer days. 1,000 kilometres of rivers, including 600 in the first category, we are here in a fishing department!
