Everything that you will need is in the appartment, and is scrupulously clean, light and airy. Modern wide screen TV, fast Wifi and new kitchen. It has a very cosy sitting room with wide picture windows overlooking the harbour. The only area of the appartment that is not in keeping with the rest is the bathroom which is small and basic. Has a small terrace overlooking the fishing harbour where the busy comings and goings of the town can be observed. A concentration of restaurants in this area means that you'll never go hungry. The appartment is directly above one of these. The main shopping streets are just a few minutes away, with a supermarket very close by. Granville is not a glitzy tourist town, but if you like a typically French atmosphere with friendly locals and an abundance of seafood fresh from the sea this place is ideal. The appartment is not spectacular, but is warm, clean and comfortable and is well recommended for a couple, add two kids and space may become a little tight.

Extremely convenient for the town. Granville is quite a big town with lots of shops, bars and restaurants. The "Haute Ville" is very pretty and a walk around the streets and "Sentier Littoral" is a must. Also there is lots of free parking nearby.
