Who are we

Sous Les Étoiles, "Under The Stars", is a family run campsite in the village of St Martin des Besaces, Calvados, offering camping and caravanning. Formerly known as Le Puits.

Perfectly situated for exploring the undulating picturesque countryside, tasting renowned cheeses, sampling sparkling cider and of course, the famous Calvados.

We are the third owners of the campsite but have been lucky enough to have the original owners, Barry & Barbara, come and stay for a few weeks with their knowledge and wisdom.

Our achievements

Since our arrival here at the campsite in December 2018, we have not stopped with the updates and new areas.

New Sanitaire

The first item that was a must was a totally new shower and toilet area.

Bar stripped and re-built

The old bar was very tired and desperate for a rebuild.

Games Room updated

The old red parachute covered room needed a totally new look.

What a fantastic camping place! We were just traveling around Normandy and we were looking for a nice camping place to spend the lasts days of our trip, this was a nice surprise. The place it's beautiful and the camping has been recently renovated, the owners have done a great work with it. The bathrooms are clean and great, the social area it's awesome. The owner is a really nice man who is open to chat and help you out with anything you need, this is highly appreciate it when you go on camping. I hope to come back soon, as this has been our favorite camping place so far, highly recommended...June 2020

Paisible et chaleureux... Nous avons passé une nuit délicieuse en camping car dans cet écrin de verdure paisible gardant toute son authenticité et son charme. Les prioritaires nous ont accueillis très chaleureusement avec leur joli accent anglais et se montrés extrêmement disponibles et attentionnés. Les sanitaires sont d'une propreté irréprochable! Bref nous recommandons cet endroit plein de charme sans hésiter!! ...Octobre 2020
