THE HARAS DU PINE
"Versailles of the horse

It would be a shame to miss out on one of the region's heritage treasures: the Haras national du Pin and its 300 years of equestrian history! The Haras du Pin was the first of the Royal Studs created by Louis XIV. Built from 1715 by the king's architect, Robert de Cotte and installed in a green setting of more than 1000 hectares, it is nicknamed the "Versailles of the horse" . The Domaine du Haras du Pin now welcomes various partners to develop training activities, research, competitions, races... always around the master of the place: the horse. One of the most famous stud farms in the world opens its majestic grid of honor to you!

CASTLES AND MANORS IN NORMANDY
Calvados and Orne

From medieval fortresses to peaceful half-timbered houses topped with thatch, the Norman soil is rich in castles and mansions.

Prestigious vestiges still illustrate the Norman military architecture of the time of the dukes-kings of England, such as the fortified castles of  Caen  and  Cliff.

We recommend the castles of:

THE FLOWERY COAST
An undeniable charm

This part of the Normandy coast, located in Calvados, extends from Cabourg to Honfleur and brings together the most emblematic corners of the Normandy coast. Posh but also flowery, the resorts that dot the coast are undeniably charming.
