“Wonderful!”
Reviewed 22 July 2013 for a stay in July 2013

We stayed in Gite Gorvello in early July 2013 (myself, my husband, my parents and our 8 month old daughter).

The property is excellently equipped and is particularly child friendly with toys and other equipment galore. Jenni and Peter are wonderful hosts abd offered a warm welcome, help and advise throughout our stay.

The location is a stunning French village with a local bar (you can pick up fresh bread and croissants here too) and a local creperie. Not much else is available within walking distance so a car is a must. A supermarket is available in Theix which is about 10 mins down the road.

Beaches are about a 20-30 minute drive depending on where you go and Vannes (well worth a visit) is about 20 minutes down the road too.

You'll need rugs, chairs etc for the beach as they don't offer sunbeds for hire!

All in all we'd recommend the Gite without hesitation. It's spotlessly clean, modern and comfortable. The location works if you're prepared to spend a bit of time in the car.

Lovely lovely holiday and all we can say is a big thank you to the Clayton family!

“Perfect every time - it's why we come back for more!”

This is our third visit to beautiful Le Gorvello.

Jenni, Peter, Jake and Sam are the perfect hosts - on arrival the house is spotless and wonderfully presented, with lovely touches throughout: a selection of local goodies in the kitchen including a delicious Breton cider from just down the road, flowers in the rooms, children's toys in abundance! A welcome meal awaited us, too, and it was great to enjoy the family's hospitality.

Jenni and Peter are always on hand - with handy advice on places to visit and for picking out wine :). The boys are really attentive and were brilliant playmates for my children.

I could extol the virtue of the house endlessly, but essentially it is a beautiful, large, well-presented holiday cottage in a delightful village in an area with huge appeal - within 30 mins drive there is a limitless amount to do. The Claytons look after you as much or as little as you wish, and in terms of value, it's exceptional.

I suspect we'll be back for visit number 4...

“A perfect place to stay”
Reviewed 22 August 2012 for a stay in August 2012

people found this review helpful

The Gorvello gite is located in a very pretty village, 15 minutes from a lovely sandy beach, and not far from Vannes. It is a beautifully decorated gite - scrupulously clean, with two bathrooms (one usefully on the ground floor) with comfortable beds in good sized bedrooms. It has everything a family would need - a large, safe garden with outdoor games, indoor books and toys, and large dining tables inside and outside. We spent a blissful week here with our grandchildren, and enjoyed every minute. The friendly English owners live next door so were on hand to recommend beaches, restaurants and places of interest, (and help with travel plans in our case) and their children played with our grandchildren. The gite would also be suitable for couples. It is quietly situated at the edge of the village, which has a bar and a creperie, and the Gulf of Morbihan is an interesting area to explore. We spent a wonderful day around Carnac and a well-preserved castle is within walking distance of the gite. The visitors' book shows that people have returned to the gite time and time again. What better recommendation could there be?

“Great Gite in Great location”

people found this review helpful

This was our third visit to Gite Gorvello. Have already booked for this year.
Jennie and Peter are the perfect hosts and always welcome us with open arms. It is Home from Home. We have been using Gite's for several years before finding Gite Gorvello in 2009. The best find ever.
The accommodation is spotlessly clean and extremely comfortable. there is always a food hamper awaiting your arrival. Jennie and Peter cannot do enough to help you enjoy your stay.
The perfect base for exploring the Morbihan area and farther afield. What Peter does not know about the area is not worth knowing. He will point you in the right direction to the best restaurants, beaches, markets and attractions.
Have recommended Gite Gorvello to friends and relatives, who have stayed and are of the same opinion.

We stayed at this gite for long weekend in February. Like many others who have stay here we were returning for our third visit. The owners Peter and Jenni know exactly how to make you feel welcome. The gites is very clean and comfortably furnished with all the facilities you would require for a pleasant stay. The gite has its own patio area and access to the large garden. The village is picturesque with it's own crepere and cafe. the largetown of Vannes is just a 15 minute drive for restuarants and a large Saturday market with many excellent quality fish, fruit, cheese and meat stalls . The coast line in the Vannes area is particularly attractive with lovely beaches and coastal walks. There is plenty to do and the owners are on hand with helpful advise to get you started to enjoy this beutiful area of Brittany. You wont be disappointed if you decide to stay here.

We stayed here in June 2011 with our 2 young daughters and can't recommend this highly enough.
There was a warm welcome on arrival and a great selection of welcome gifts.
The rooms were spacious, very well finished and our daughters loved the outside space.
The Gite is ideally situated for both the city of Vannes and the stunning local beaches.
We will definitely be back!
