We would certainly go again, and recomend it to anyone. It was one of our best Stays. Auray is a great place. The port with all the Restaurants and Artists. The town its self, with the fish market, open everyday, and a great market by the church, Monday and Friday. Good shopping, and plenty of places to visit, not to far away, including Vannes Port, market day Wednesday, and Point Avon only a short drive, also Trinity le Mer, for boat Enthusiast.

The beds are comfortable the view is perfect and its only a short walk to the shops restaurants bars and cafe's. The Harbor and bay are perhaps the best in the area with lots to see do.

                                                                                            5 of 5
                                                                                            We enjoyed an extremely comfortable stay in this very well-equipped house which suited our needs perfectly. It is clean and bright and the hosts were very welcoming and met us at the property at short notice to provide the keys as we'd arrived slightly early. They explained how everything worked and were happy to answer the few queries we had. The location is ideal for a family holiday with proximity to local beaches at Erdeven and a short drive to the beautiful seaside resorts of Carnac, Trinite sur Mer and Quiberon. The historic cities of Auray and Vannes are also a very short distance away along with numerous other interesting towns and of course, the world-famous, pre-historic standing stones. We also found a surprise in the excellent 'Cite de la Voile' in Lorient, a museum dedicated to Ocean Sailing, which filled practically the only damp afternoon of the holiday and included a free sailing lesson - great value. We have stayed many times in Brittany and this was the best property we have rented - a truly wonderful holiday and we hope to return in the near future.
