About the neighbourhood
The Haras is on the border of two scenic areas of Normandy -the rural Pays D'Auge and the more rugged Suisse Normande. The rural location and beautiful setting make it a destination in itself for a relaxing break but for those looking to get to know the area, try one or more of these ideas for exploring: 1. Local circular 10km walk/cycle starting at our gates and following the quiet country lanes and greenways: 'Route des Haras'- passing by our neighbour, the famous thoroughbred horse stud: Fresnay-le-Buffard. 2. Evening boat cruise on nearby Rabodanges lake with wonderful candlelit dinner onboard. 3. Circular drive: 'Route de la Suisse Normande' - starting at nearby Falaise and taking in the local beauty spots and natural heritage of this region on a signposted easy 75km route ju...
How to get there
Most British visitors will bring their own cars and cross the English Channel to visit Normandy. BY ROAD Easily accessible on good roads from ferry ports. Caen 45 minutes,Le Havre 1hr 30,Cherbourg 2 hr,Dieppe 2hr 15,St Malo 2hr 15,Boulogne 3hr 15,Calais 3 hr 35 And just 2 hr 45 from Paris BY FERRY Arrive on one of the luxurious Brittany ferries at the port at Caen-Ouistreham and then come to us direct – it's only a 45 minutes' drive on good, open roads. Perhaps stock up on the unbelievably large selection of good value French wines and local cider in Falaise on the way. Or you could take the ferry to Le Havre – overnight with LD lines from Portsmouth or the morning express with Brittany ferries – and, instead of coming direct to the Haras (136km/85 miles, 90 minutes), take in some sight-s...
