The accommodation is spacious, well kitted out and well maintained. Fran and Rick are very welcoming, thoughtful and helpful at all times. They are a credit to Owners Direct. Saint-Gravé, France is well positioned for the archaeology around Carnac, and the beautiful coastline between Lorient and Saint-Nazaire. Everything is close at hand, with a hypermarket with services at nearby Malansac. Quiet roads lead to picturesque local towns such as Vannes, Josselin, La Roche-Bernard and La Gacilly. We had plenty to see and do for a fortnight, without having to travel far each day. The beaches between Lorient and Quiberon were some of the best we'd visited in Europe. All-in-all, a brilliant stay. Highly recommended. Ruth and William

Josselin is lovely with many fine walks. And a patisserie within fifty metres is a real bonus! We loved it. Rob and Shirley (Kent, UK)

My husband, myself and our dogs all had a wonderful time. So good in fact we have rebooked for next year.
