About the neighbourhood
Our nearest town is historic Carentan which is about 10kms from Sainteny with several supermarkets, banks, shops, cinema, swimming pool and railway station (route to Paris) and a popular market held every Monday. There are several Restaurants in the town.
Carentan is called the “Capital of the Marais” because of its location at the heart of the marsh from where for centuries it has drawn its prosperity. The old town has been able to retain its rich architectural heritage dating from the 17th and 18th centuries, which is not to be missed.

The village of Sainteny is situated approximately 45 minutes by car from the port of Cherbourg, one hour from the port of Caen, and approximately ten kms equi-distance between the towns of Carentan and Periers in the Manche region of Normandy.
