Alain was helpful and pleasant a good host.. the house is well presented, clean and well equipped, impressive living space with wood pellet heater, modern kitchen, 2 good shower rooms and 4 bedrooms (linen and towels provided clean and fresh).. Internet is a hit and miss affair but not important to us, so no problem.. we were left to our own devices no interference, and no rush to be out by a certain time.. 5 out of 5 is fair and honest, have a good time ..

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)
