Le Domaine d'Ablon

A boutique with private dining set in pristine parkland in the heart of Normandy

Tranquil countryside. Luxurious accommodation. Rugged beaches. And world-class food. If these tick your boxes, look no further than Le Domaine d’Ablon in Normandy’s beautiful Auge region. A handful of suites and cottages nestled within a glorious estate, Le Domaine has elevated hospitality to an artform.

Suites at the hotel are unique, quirky and put privacy centre-stage. Pick ‘The Dovecote’ and sleep under a cathedral-like vaulted wooden ceiling. In ‘La Grange’ you can soak in a cast-iron tub and curl up in your own elegant lounge. Choose the two bedroomed ‘Cottage’ and spend convivial evenings by the fire – and days relaxing in your own box-hedged garden. Wherever you lay your head you’ll enjoy personalised à la carte dining served to your suite, to enjoy in total privacy. Normandy’s famous regional produce (including apples, shellfish and cream) are complemented with seasonal fruit and vegetables from the estate grounds, and given a gastronomic twist.

Beyond the verdant gardens and orchards of the estate, adventures in Normandy await. Drive horses through the surf at Deauville beach in a sulky, visit the towering cliffs of Etretat, or explore the charming streets of artists’ favourite Honfleur. Or simply stay close to home and ramble in the picturesque countryside. Either way, la vie est belle

Environmentally Conscious

From planting 300-400 trees and native Norman plants each year, to installing 30 beehives for pollination and honey production and keeping free-range chickens for eggs, the Domaine is as green as its verdant setting. Each building within the estate is linked to a micro-station which treats water, while rainwater is recycled for the gardens and a well is used for outdoor water. Future plans include constructing a greenhouse for over 40 citrus varieties, geothermal heating for the outdoor pool, and building a wood-burning oven for baking bread.

Cultural Custodians

Built by local craftsmen to resemble a Norman hamlet, the Domaine functions as an eco-museum of traditional Norman architecture. New buildings will continue to put forward this local expertise, including different themes such as the Carpenter’s House, the Dairy, the Mill, the Post Office, and the Blacksmith as a celebration of Normandy’s artisans. Additionally, electric bikes, scooters and cars are provided for guests to explore the numerous UNESCO Heritage Sites nearby, from the D-Day landing beaches to Mont Saint-Michel.

SLH Considerate Collection

Community Minded

The beautifully kept estate grounds are an educational oasis for the Normandy community, as the Domaine regularly opens its gardens and orchards to local schools and to the public to shed light on developing the self-sufficient permaculture process, beekeeping, and the cultivation of its organic vegetables, herbs, and medicinal plants grown on-site. Slightly further afield, the Domaine offers discovery tours to guests which highlight local cider, cheese, Calvados, and caramel makers in experiential sessions and product tasting.

Le Domaine d'Ablon Organic Produce

The art of food

From mushroom foraging in autumn to jam making in summer, Le Domaine d’Ablon offers the chance to get hands-on with the rich produce of the estate. Foodies can perfect their culinary skills with a cookery course run by the hotel’s chef. Or if you prefer just to enjoy the professionals’ work simply pull up a chair by the fire – or under a cherry tree – and tuck in.
 
Le Domaine d'Ablon Activities

Experiences made for you

There’s nothing more exhilarating than experiencing the wild beauty of the Normandy coastline from a horse-drawn sulky – at top speed. Fans of a slower pace can immerse themselves another Normandy tradition at the Haras stud farm – an exclusive behind-the-scenes introduction to its horse racing heritage. Just say the word and Le Domaine d’Ablon can tailor-make trips to help you discover the beauty and history of the Pays d’Auge. 
 
Le Domaine d'Ablon Normandy Beach

Normandy is your oyster

Fill your days at Le Domaine d’Ablon with mountain biking, pony trekking, honey farming and foraging. Or just soak up the charm of the Estate with a stroll before dinner. Beyond its gardens, the treasures of the region are all within reach. Take a classic snap of magical Mont-Saint-Michel, go cheese-tasting in Pont-L’Évêque or collect shells on the Normandy landing beaches.

Unique location to relax and enjoy live

Nearly everything was great. It started with a warm welcome and our really unique room, which we loved a lot. On our first evening we had a diner in the garden on a nicely decorated place with a fresh sea platter, organized by Christophe who is really a great host. Breakfast in our room was each day Read more[SPLIT]Read lessprepared with a lot of love and some products come from the own garden. If we need some tipps or informations Christophe was always there to help and also organized some nice diner location in Honfleur, which is close to the domain. We're still looking forward to come back
