My husband, 12-year-old son, and I spent two days in Brittany on our recent vacation in France. We wanted to stay in the countryside yet have easy access to Vannes and the sights in the area. What a sweet spot to spend a few days! The village of Le Gorvello is small but picture-postcard perfect, and the owners were so...

We had a wonderful one-night stay with owners Ellen and Don during a visit to the Golfe de Morbihan. Everything was wonderful - charming home, very nicely appointed and spacious room and bath (book the family suite!), and delicious breakfast. A great launching off point for visiting the gulf, more calm and at a very nice price. We will be...

A most pleasant room, with adjoining bath. I felt very rested after my night's sleep. Delicious breakfasts, fresh tasty fruits and quality breads. The special blend coffee was a treat. Don and Ellen went out of their way to make me welcome.

My husband and I are experienced travelers and feel like we stumbled on a real bargain with this quirky café/bed and breakfast (65 euros for a double room with breakfast served on a sunny terrace!). Though we were initially prepared for a vacation in the "middle of nowhere", we got a pleasant surprise when our host arranged for transportation from...

We were warmly welcomed by Don & Ellen and shown up to a bedroom which ticked all the boxes. Ellen put together a tremendous light meal, after which we were able to walk around the village following the printed guide, with English notations provided by Don. A great first/last stop from the ferries or as a relaxing base from which...

Ellen and Don are gracious hosts and our room was clean, comfortable and spacious. Le Gorvello is a quaint town and close to the coastal towns of Brittany and Vannes, which are fun to explore. The Cafe is off the beaten tourist path and offers an opportunity to get a glimpse of small town french culture. I was able to...

Thank you again Don and Ellen. As ever, the welcome was warm, service excellent and the room just perfect. I got to my room and just knew I could relax in my home-from-home. Can't wait to be back again. Xx

This was the first place we stayed on our most recent trip to France. We arrived at night and were given a really warm welcome by Don and Ellen, who stayed up and prepared dinner just for us. Le Gorvello is well placed to explore the coast and inland, including Vannes. Don and Ellen are excellent advisors, having lived many...
