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 through the forest.Thi...
