About Peter & Alyson Sansbury
When we moved to Le Tertre from Sussex in 2010 it was to escape the rat-race of our busy working lives and the stressful commuting and long hours culture of the UK. Le Tertre is a complete antidote to that lifestyle, with its rural setting in the middle of rolling countryside on the southern border of Lower Normandy where it meets the Mayenne region of the Pays de le Loire. The peace and quiet of this area is so relaxing that within hours of getting here you will begin to unwind and settle into the rural French way of life.
Peter & Alyson Sansbury purchased this Cottage in 2007

Delightful, comfortable, peaceful and very welcoming.
Our stay at Le Tetre was an absolute delight. Thoroughly enjoyable. Welcome pack was indeed very welcome. The Gite itself was cosy, clean, comfortable with amazing countryside.
Peter, Alyson, Jo and Trev made us very welcome and nothing was too much trouble, they even organised for our Jack Russel (Hudson) to have his tablet at the vets in Domfront before our return.
I have mentioned welcome a few times, but that was how were made to feel, so can't emphasise that enough.

Wonderful relaxing vacation
We had a great time in a beautiful setting. Our guests were very friendly and helpful, but also respected our privacy.
Many thanks for your kind feedback Daniel, it is much appreciated. You are welcome back any time!
Thanks again... Peter & Alyson
Comfortable, well equipped property
Nestling down country lanes in a peaceful rural setting, Le Tetre Rouge is an idyllic spot for a relaxing French holiday.
Wake in the morning to the sound of birdsong and farmyard noises; sit out in the pleasant back garden sipping wine and watching the cows go about their business.
The gite is spotless and well-equipped, with a wide range of kitchenware. The living area is comfortably furnished with UK TV, books and fast wifi. The upstairs bedroom is spacious with views of the countryside.
There is a small supermarket in Ceauce, a 5 minute drive, while Mayenne (about 20 minutes) has a couple of large supermarkets, Aldi and Lidl. There a number of attractive towns to explore.
Peter and Alyson are pleasant hosts, greeting you on arrival with a starter pack, while Alyson keeps you supplied with eggs during your stay. They leave you to enjoy your holiday, but are only too happy to provide any help you require.
For us they went the extra mile. Unfortunately, my wife needed urgent hospital treatment. Peter arranged everything and he and Alyson took me to the hospital behind the ambulance, staying with me until after 1AM. Without them I don’t know how we would have coped.
Many thanks for your kind words, it's much appreciated.
We were very happy to have you to stay here, and you are very welcome back anytime!
Thanks again, Pete & Alyson.
We thoroughly enjoyed our 2 weeks stay at le Tertre Rouge. It is a lovely conversion in a peaceful & relaxing location. The accommodation was clean & comfortable. Our hosts, Peter and Alyson, were very welcoming & helpful without being intrusive. We would recommend le Tertre Rouge to any couple seeking a restful holiday.
Thank you for your very kind words, it's much appreciated, and we are delighted that you enjoyed your stay. You are very welcome to come back and see us anytime!
