Set in 200 hectares of land in the heart of the Rambouillet forest, the Haras de la Cense feels like open countryside just 40 minutes from Paris by car. Nature surrounds La Cense and provides a relaxing backdrop.


A magical place

Landscaped by Pascal Cribier, the stunning natural beauty of the Haras de la Cense leaves its mark on all visitors. The wide open spaces are dappled with sunlight. Every outlook of the Haras creates an atmosphere which inspires contemplation. This serenity is reflected in the residents: both people and horses.
