“Lovely gite, peaceful location, but plenty to do”
Reviewed 13 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Stayed in late August with 4 adults and 2 young children, which worked really well in the gite. There was plenty for the kids to do - swimming, feeding the horses, games room etc, but also tranquility and a relaxing place for the adults. The gite was really well equipped, with everything we could have needed, and the owners were really helpful, both in giving information before we arrived, and showing us around when we got there.
Plenty to do in the local area, although a lot of the main attractions are an hour or so drive.

“Thoroughly recommended”
Reviewed 27 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Fantastic week in a unique setting, accomodation is excellent with really nice touches such as welcome sweets, biscuits and lovely French cider. Facilities great, swimming, tennis, games room and nice walks. Lots to see in Normandy and all within easy reach of the gite.
All in all a totally relaxing holiday in an idyllic setting, we all loved it!

“Horse heaven”
Reviewed 9 June 2015 for a stay in May 2015

The Haras du Gazon is situated off the beaten track, surrounded by beautiful Normandy pastures and stone villages. However it is not isolated , as a bustling town, Falaise , with it's castle is an easy 10 minute drive away. Bayeux, Caen, Rouen and the Normandy beaches are all close by and we easily managed a trip to Monet's garden at Giverny.
The chateau itself is elegant and our gite, Baloubet was beautifully converted, well-equipped and comfy - a true home from home. The owners, Tim and Annie, bent over backwards to make our stay memorable. We can thoroughly recommend the Haras to anyone - couples, families, groups of friends - and if you love thoroughbred horses,you'll be in seventh heaven !!
