We had a fabulous half term break as a family group of 16 staying in Cor de la Brier and Double Espoir. This combination particularly suited a large family group due to the open plan main living area as well as additional living areas when...More

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.
Try one or more of these ideas for exploring them:

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 just to the west of the Haras. You could perhaps take a break by Culey le Patry and hire a donkey or two for a walk th...

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...
