Staying at the Haras du Gazon was like staying with friends and yet being at a resort at the same time! The grounds and gite that we occupied were absolutely beautiful and so well maintained. The hosts, Annie & Tim were like old friends within minutes and went way above and beyond to accommodate our needs!! Living with the horses close by was an added bonus and the location of the property was surprisingly convenient to all our day trips and outings! We were a party of six friends traveling together and although not everyone was a horse person when they arrived, their appreciation of the horses and that way of life was ignited by staying in the middle of the comings and goings of the day! It was so much fun!!! …
At Pommette and Billy
Pommette & Billy is the most wonderful place to stay, and the hosts are so welcoming and friendly.
This is such a beautiful place, so spacious and comfortable - and the rooms are decorated in such an amazing fashion....and what a bathroom !! Your every need is catered for here - my regret is that I had only booked to stay there for one night !!!!
Denis and Cathy are fantastic hosts, so friendly and welcoming . To our surprise they dined with us that evening and we enjoyed a meal of so many dishes which had been prepared with such passion by Cathy. We had the most enjoyable evening it was like we had known them for years......and then there was the breakfast !!! so much selection - and even eggs from their own chickens !
Absolutely amazing, thank you so much Denis & Cathy......best wishes and good luck to you both for the future.....hope to see you again next year. …
Haras du Gazon: Gîte Baloubet
Stayed for 2 weeks from 25th July and it was fab!. We have stayed in France on many occasions but this time had our friends and their children with us for their first stay. We chose Haras du Gazon as we wanted somewhere within 4 hours of Normandy. Our Gite ticked all the boxes. It had everything we needed...pool, games room, wi-fi, tennis, fantastic grounds and top priority! The carp lake. Our party caught over 35 decent carp over the fortnight. It was idyllic!. Baloubet Gite has a,lovely balcony overlooking the lake which made it for us.
Lots to do In the area, go-karting, kayaking, zip-wiring, Festyland theme park, fishing, cycling (bikes are provided at the Gite), D-Day beaches and museum visits - we did the lot! The added bonus was the scorching weather for 10 days out of the 14. This complex also has 3 other very large Gites on site, as well as over 100 horses that are bred and trained there fir showjumping.
The only downsides were the large number of flies (which bite!) although we has the kids on swatting duty each day...plus the horrendous journeys through the Eurotunnel caused by migrant crisis - nightmare.
We didn't eat out a lot but can thoroughly recommend Top Pizza at Falaise! Best Pizzas for miles around...nuce to eat in with a cold cider.
Overall - a brilliant place to stay with brilliant facilities! …
Lovely gite in a glorious setting
Great place to stay very relaxing. The children loved the pool which although the weather wasn't great was excellent because it was covered. Great centre for exploring Normandy or just chilling out …
