The cottage is cosy and comfortable with good facilities and a lovely terrace. The owners live next door and couldn't have been more helpful with recommendations, directions and local knowledge. I'd have no hesitation in recommending this property.

It had everything that we needed, including the charm. When we had a problem at the property it was fixed immediately by the friendly 'handyman'. We had a lovely relaxing holiday and would happily use La Gravette again.
