Staying at the Chateau was a perfect introduction to elegant living in Normandy and at the same time gave us a wonderful view of nearby small villages and seacoast towns. In the winter it was very easy to get around from this base.

What you should know…

  • Don't forget to tell the owners the time of your arrival!

Chateau des Haras is a romantic and beautiful early 17th Century Château, located in the lush and verdant countryside of Upper Normandy. Set in magnificent grounds, this 400 year old stately home is steeped in history. The Château was first built as a hunting lodge in 1606, and then enlarged in 1661 in the reign of Louis XIV. It has a rich and dramatic history which further adds to the historical interest of this important piece of French architecture.

The Chateau is surrounded by a 6 hectare park, where thoroughbred horses graze on either side of the house, beneath avenues of centuries’ old limes. During the summer months the Château is available for exclusive rental, affording guests a unique blend of luxury, tranquillity and privacy. The Chateau provides four double en suite bedrooms. The Château has been completely redecorated to an extremely high standard. It is furnished throughout with period antiques, family heirlooms and fine furniture, and hung with tapestries and paintings, giving the place a unique and lived-in quality.

Throughout the house, the ceilings are high and often beamed in oak, and the windows are tall and full of sunlight. All bedrooms have their own en suite bathrooms, equipped with bath or shower, heated towel rail and magnifying illuminated shaving mirror. All bathrooms have double basins and the modern taps. Where beds are twin singles, they can be made up as one double bed. There are 6 telephones scattered about the house, a fax machine, and an ADSL Wi-Fi socket for laptops.

Interior & Grounds

The chateau sleeps up to 11 guests in 5 bedrooms and one extra bed.

On the ground floor is the Computer room, Salle de Chasse, entrance hall, Dining Room, Drawing Room and Library. All these rooms are large and sunlit with views onto both sides of the château. All are furnished with antiques, family pictures and comfortable sofas. There are fireplaces in the 3 main reception rooms.

On the mezzanine floor is a modern kitchen with 2 dishwashers (Miele), every conceivable kitchen gadget and ample glass and crockery for the occupants and friends. The old kitchen, which now serves as a family dining room, has a huge fireplace, with an antique mechanical spit for roasting up a whole pig or lamb. There are 3 cellars for storage and a wine cellar.

On the 1st floor are 3 extra spacious double bedrooms with views overlooking each side of the park, all with en suite bathrooms. Two of the bathrooms contain double basin, lavatory, bidet, large bath, shower, heated towel rail and illuminated shaving mirror, and “his”and “her” cupboards. The 3rd en suite bathroom contains double basin, lavatory, large bath, heated towel rail and illuminated shaving mirror.

On the top floor there are 2 double bedrooms with views overlooking each side of the park, with walk-in closet space and en suite bathrooms, containing double basin, lavatory, shower, heated towel rail and illuminated shaving mirror. A utility room is fitted with linen cupboards, with a large capacity washing machine (Bosch) and tumble dryer (Bosch), cylinder iron (Miele) and steam iron. There is also a playroom with TV and exercise machines.

Outside the Chateau is surrounded by a semi-circular dry moat, with a bridge over it. The dovecote in the park is capable of housing 5,000 pigeons. On either side of the house are large paddocks, stretching away in the distance, containing thoroughbred racing horses and their foals. There are fine avenues of hundred year old lime trees, a large orchard of mixed fruit trees, and woods for children to play in.

Map, Location & Local Information

The chateau is 15 minutes from the famous port of Honfleur and 30 minutes from Deauville, with its luxury boutiques, sandy beaches, restaurants and casino. Next door is Trouville, with its well-known fish market and brasseries on the port. Beuzeville for all shops and supermarkets is 10 minutes away.

There are at least 11 golf courses in the area, all first class, at Deauville (3), Tourgeville, St. Julien, and St. Gatien, Houlgate, Cabourg, Caen, Omaha Beach and Etretat. There are sandy beaches all along the coast, trails for hikers, dedicated bicycle routes, and boating on the river Seine and the Risle, one of its tributaries.

Trains from Paris stop at Pont l’Evèque and Deauville; the Paris autoroute A13 is 7 minutes away (exit 28); Calais and the Channel Tunnel are 2.5 hours away, via the Pont de Normandie. Ferries from Portsmouth go to Caen (50 minutes) and Le Havre (35 minutes). The airport at Saint Gatien is for private or charter flights.

The Region

History and gastronomy go hand-in-hand in Normandy, making it a great choice if culture and fine dining are what you’re looking for in a holiday! There’s still plenty on offer besides the food and tales of yesteryear, however – you can take a tour around some of the beautiful inland towns and villages or head to the coast, where you’ll find a mixture of wide sandy beaches and rugged, romantic cliffs. If you’re not already convinced to head to one of our villas in Normandy (or maybe if you’ve already booked) you’ll find a wealth of great things to do, see and eat in our ultimate Normandy travel guide!

Reviews for Chateau Des Haras

Chateau Des Haras Reviews


  • Great location and great host

    Posted by shizuka s on 27/12/2013

    We spent 5days at Chateau des Haras just before Christmas. We drove down from London and it was quite easy to reach the village.The owner was unfortunately on holiday, however he was always willing to help us via phone.

    There are few small towns around the village and also not so far from Le Harve. Great Location to visit Normandy and great host!

  • My 60th birthday

    Posted by Margot L on 06/12/2011

    We spent a really wonderful week at the Chateau with four other couples (in part to celebrate my 60th birthday) in May - June this year and cannot speak highly enough of the experience. Many thanks to Robin for his trust in us, as, after showing us around, he returned to England and allowed our group to share his beautiful, but at the same time very comfortable home. The photos on the internet looked really lovely and I must admit I was a little concerned that the chateau would not live up to our expectations as has happened in the past. I need not have worried, as, if possible, it even exceeded them. The rooms are huge and beautifully decorated with modern ensuite bathrooms and the kitchen was equipped with everything you could possibly need to prepare & serve fabulous meals from local produce for a large group (with the minor exception of a good sharp knife) and the boulangerie, charcuterie & restaurant in the village were also extremely good. Luckily running up and down the stairs and long walks in the surrounding countryside kept us from putting on too much weight! There is so much to do and see in the region that several of us are seriously considering a return visit in a couple of year's time. Thanks also to Martine, the very helpful housekeeper who came in for a couple of hours each morning. All in all, we felt that this was the best holiday we have had in Europe (and also extremely good value) and we are frequent travellers with high expectations.
