A stud farm, equestrian facilities, outbuildings and a contemporary manor house,
with some 42 hectares, in the midst of the Auge region
Bonnebosq, CALVADOS lower-normandy 14340 FR


Very near to the Lower Normandy coast, 20 km from Deauville’s International Equestrian Complex. Paris can be reached via motorway or via Lisieux and Pont-l’Evêque stations, with their 2-hour train links. Shops and amenities are a 5-minute car ride away.
In a village that marked writer, André-Gide’s childhood and where he lived until he was 30 years old. The landscape, featuring meadows and woods surrounding several farms, was included in his work, bearing permanent witness to the stories that he confided to paper.
As a result of his work, he was awarded the Nobel prize for literature in 1947, an event which made this corner of the Auge region a literary site.


The entrance to the stud farm, on the outskirts of the village, comprises a large driveway, bordered on both sides by grasslands where thoroughbred horses appear to be straight out of a stereotyped image. At the end, an impressive, Norman-style, contemporary residence, used for administrative purposes, is an indication of the size of this estate. The equestrian outbuildings, a little further on, dominate the grasslands and paddocks. A through driveway, a few hundred metres long, leads to a manor house, surrounded by meadows and valleys. Its haughty, sculptural silhouette is an integral part of the premises’ stateliness. Inside, alternating stone and wood give the rooms a warm atmosphere. An infinity swimming pool, on the south side, dominates the verdant countryside such that residents are also completely immersed in silence and tranquillity.

Our opinion

In a region where horses reign, this first-class work tool is immediately operational. Equestrian eventing is an exacting and competitive universe. The quality as well as the comprehensiveness of the facilities and equipment have earned them first place on more than one occasion. In conjunction with this, there is a highly professional on-site team. The half-timbered manor house, with its steep roofs facing the most pleasant of landscapes, is set slightly back from the equestrian activity, guaranteeing a balance between family life and work.
