“The perfect base!”
Reviewed 21 October 2016 for a stay in October 2016

This was our third trip to Normandy, and our first time staying at les Gites Champetres. This was by far the best spot we've been fortunate enough to use as a base for our explorations of the Normandy area. What a wonderful surprise! It was head and shoulders above any place we have stayed. The gite is an incredible value; a beautiful place with plenty of room. The rooms are large and beautifully appointed. The kitchen has everything you could possibly need. So many little details have been anticipated by Terry and Liliane. They are the perfect hosts -- there to help when needed but mindful of your privacy. The grounds are lovely with individual patio areas and grills for each of the three cottages. Sainteny is a picturesque town and an ideal location for visiting Normandy, particularly the area of airborne operations and landing beaches.

We really can't recommend this place highly enough. It was such a wonderful surprise. We will definitely return. The booking process was painless. Terry and Liliane are a joy to deal with. What can we say? It is the perfect gite.

Thank you for such as great review Herb and Jo Anne, but the hosts can only be as good as their guests, and you were easy to get on with, extremely considerate, to us and you left the gite in a spotless condition. You can come back anytime.

Our 6th visit to the gites and they are even more charming than ever ..

The warm welcome from the owners Terry and Lillianne marked the start of a perfect holiday , the location of the gites makes them ideal for days out to the historic cities, landmarks and attractions , the gardens at the gite and the facilities provided make them perfect for days in doing nothing , the children love the Alladins cave and trampoline
The local bar " bar duo " a minutes walk from the gites is great for meeting local people and the owner herve' and his family are great hosts .
A big big thanks to Terry and Lilianne for your help and hospitality and advice with the Resturaunt , and the vehicle recovery man .. Perfect hosts perfect gites .. Thank You See you next year ..

Like Average Jo from St Albans said (and we should know, as we were there at the same time!

We could not have been made more welcome. The gite was comfortable and clean, well furnished and equipped, Terry and Liliane charming and attentive but in no way intrusive. Terry's semi-fictional book on the Knights of St John is really interesting too.

The garden is wonderful and capped with the Aladdin's Cave of toys, balls, rackets etc.

The village is quiet, and it reminded me of so many villages typified in Allo Allo! However it is a short drive to two medium sized towns and (as the really helpful handbook told us) there are markets somewhere near every day.

We left a fair bit to do, so we'll certainly consider going back.

“Perfect family holiday home in Normandy”
Reviewed 12 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

This was our third year running in Walnut Cottage and we absolutely love it. It is spacious comfortable and the best equipped holiday home we have stayed in. The highlight though is the garden; it is vast and contains everything a child would want (Our daughter is 4). As it is completely enclosed and all parts are visible from the house Mums and Dads can relax too! Terry and Liliane , the new owners, are delightful and did all they could to make our stay memorable. They have added some lovely touches of their own since we were last here (such as Aladdin’s Cave – an outdoor playhouse filled with toys!) and we can’t wait to come back for the fourth time.

“Wonderful”
Reviewed 31 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

What a wonderful week we had staying in Oak Cottage. We were given a really warm welcome from Terry and Liliane the owners despite us arriving late at night due to bank holiday traffic nightmares in the UK. The cottage was well equipped with everything we needed and more; DVD's, books & games. There was plenty for the children to do including a lovely big garden with trampoline, swing and outdoor games.
With 4 big bedrooms there was plenty of space for myself, my three children and my parents. Everything about the cottage was beautifully presented and clean. It is clear that Terry and Liliane take pride in providing first class accommodation. When we arrived they had left us a basket of supplies, bread, jam, eggs, coffee, cider, and wine and over the week there were many instances where they showed kindness and thoughtfulness (even organising a little birthday cake for my daughter at the local restaurant)
The village of Sainteny was a great location for exploring Normandy. There are many sights within 30 minutes to a hour of the cottage, the D day beaches and museums, and an hour and a half to Mont St. Michel. The village has a bakery, butchery, general store, pharmacy and restaurant. To do a big shop there are a number of supermarkets in Carentan (10-15 mins) away.
A great holiday and the best accommodation we have experienced in France to date.
