How to get there

Caen 45 minutes,Le Havre 1hr 30,Cherbourg 2 hr,Dieppe 2hr 15,St Malo 2hr 15,Boulogne 3hr 15,Calais 3 hr 35
And just 2 hr 45 from Paris
BY FERRY
Arrive on one of the luxurious Brittany ferries at the port at Caen-Ouistreham and then come to us direct – it's only a 45 minutes' drive on good, open roads. Perhaps stock up on the unbelievably large selection of good value French wines and local cider in Falaise on the way.
Or you could take the ferry to Le Havre – overnight with LD lines from Portsmouth or the morning express with Brittany ferries – and, instead of coming direct to the Haras (136km/85 miles, 90 minutes), take in some sight-seeing on the coast of the Normandy 'Riviera' and Pays d'Auge on the way. Perhaps take a brief detour to see the picturesque fishing village of Honfleur and/or experience Deauville, the stylish summer seaside resort favoured by Parisiens, before heading south via the medieval half-timbered village of Beuvron en Auge with its official classification as one of 'Le plus beaux villages de France'.
