Just beyond the tiny hamlet of Neuvy au Houlme, near Falaise, in the centre of the Basse-Normandie region, the Haras is located only a 45 minute drive from the English Channel port at Caen. 

Relax and unwind in the splendid surroundings of the Haras du Gazon, a 300-acre estate of lush Normandy pastureland, enclosed by high hedges and quiet, tree lined lanes.

Once welcomed and settled into the Haras – your French home for the holiday – you can then spend whole days just roaming around the grounds and hayfields, playing tennis, kick back and go fishing for carp in the private lake or just enjoying some relaxation in the shady mature garden setting of the outdoor 20 metre pool.

The sounds of the French countryside provide the backdrop to all this – cheerful birdsong, the rustling of the poplars in a gentle breeze, the clip clop of the horses hooves as the Haras’s sleek show jumpers are taken out for exercise and then, at the end of the morning, the distant church bells tolling out for midday.

Or take the morning to shop for delicious famous Normandy cheeses and organic vegetables in the local markets and for cider at farm gates of local producers, pick up an armful of fresh bread from the ‘dépôt de pain’ at Bazoches au Houlme (4.5km, 2.8 miles) or even better bread and pastries from one of our two boulangeries at nearby pretty riverside Putanges (9.5km, 6 miles). Then return to dine alfresco in the garden – remember that nowhere in France is the habit of taking two hours for lunch more firmly rooted than in Normandy!

Come with a party of friends or family group and take over the whole place, or it’s also ideal for several families to share.

Almé (Sleeps 12) 

The double arches of the original coach house have allowed space for huge windows which now let light stream through the entrance and upper storey. Walk into the generous sized terracotta tiled modern kitchen with large farmhouse dining table. A sweeping wooden staircase takes you up to the next floor with its oak beamed vaulted living area. Modern comfortable furnishings complement the floor to ceiling windows and exposed creamy Caen stonework. This is a great place to sit and chat or dine and watch TV/DVDs.

Three lovely double bedrooms are also on this level. Large windows with shutters and pretty curtains allow brilliant views of either the formal parterre or the outer courtyard and fields beyond. All of these rooms feature sleigh beds and solid wood furniture. Large, light shower room/toilets are en suite.

Up again to the loft where the whole floor is now an appealing cosy room for six large single beds. Another TV and DVD player and a further shower room and toilet complete this oak-beamed additional living space

Almé sleeps up to 12 guests: three en suite double bedrooms and one super-size bedroom with six single beds and toilet and shower.

Modern kitchen, washing machine, dishwasher, two TVs and DVD players. Gas central heating, broadband internet.

Cot and baby equipment available if required.

Local Attractions

Sports and the Great Outdoors:

The varied landscapes of deep rural France and the extensive coastline, exceptional architectural heritage and mild climate make Normandy a rewarding place to explore on land, on the waterways, or even from the air.
Whether on land by car, cycle, horseback or on foot, on water by boat or canoe, or even taking to the skies in small planes, balloons, hang gliders and micro-lights, there always seems to be something new to discover and different ways to tempt you to get out and about.
Touring by car

A car is essential to making the most of this part of France. For those who prefer to see a lot in a short time – and in the comfort of your own car – then the ten classic Michelin Guide circular driving tours of Normandy are all worthwhile. Bring the green Michelin guidebook with you and follow the route of one of the best – the Number 4: ‘Swiss Normandy tour – designed especially for nature lovers’. You can pick up the route in nearby Falaise or Argentan.
