Haras du Gazon: Gîte Almé in Orne, a cottage in Normandy: Garden and Grounds

Spacious, Stylish Gîte near Falaise, in the heart of the Normandy Countryside

Historic horse stud farm since the 18th century, the Haras du Gazon is set in 120 hectares of lush fields and farmland in the centre of the old French provence of Normandy

A perfect base for holidaying in rural France yet only 45 minutes from the English Channel port at Caen, Ouistreham.

Gîte Almé spreads out over 3 levels providing plenty of space for up to 12 guests - 3 double ensuite bedrooms and one charming large attic room with 6 single beds.

There are extensive grounds and gardens with lake and stream. Also a lovely 20m x 8 metre swimming pool, tennis courts and games room.
Still a working farm, the Haras is heaven for horse lovers with sleek show jumpers occupying stables and fields and also being trained on the property.

If you want to explore further afield, you will be situated in the geographical centre of the whole region of Normandy , so it's possible to make day trips on good traffic free roads to all the major sights from the east to west : D Day landing beaches, the Bayeux tapestry, Mont St Michel and Giverny are within reach.

Closer by are the picturesque Pays D'Auge region; famous for cider and calvados and cheese such as Camembert and also the Suisse Normande region; famed for its forested river gorges and rolling farmland - ideal for outdoor sports such as hiking,cycling, horse trekking and canoeing.

Historical monuments abound in all directions and a good start is the medieval castle in nearby Falaise - the birthplace of William the Conqueror.

The food in Normandy is a great treat and one of the 'Grande Cuisine' s of France- based on fresh seafood from the lengthy coastline and rich in cream and cheese and luscious fruit and vegetables from fertile farmland.
While there is only one (excellent) local vineyard to visit, there are plenty of opportunities to buy apple and pear based cider and calvados - the famous apple brandy - from local producers.
The market culture is strong in Normandy so you can stock up at colourful open air produce markets 7 days a week .

And if you prefer not to cook every night, there are also plenty of restaurants to suit every budget from Michelin stars to humble 'Les Routiers'.

So whether you are looking for a relaxing rural retreat, a busy sightseeing schedule,authentic French cuisine, outdoor pursuits or a combination of all , there is something for everyone to enjoy.
