Our family of 6 absolutely loved this apartment in Vannes! It is in an amazing spot, 1 block from the beginning of the Old City Center. Walking distance to wonderful restaurants, quaint grocery stores, Vannes Cathedral, the Vannes Ramparts (the wall and gardens surrounding the old city), and the Place Henri IV (this is a time travel experience, walking in this cobble stoned square. Unbelievable.).
We were able to make day trips to Auray, Gulf du Morbihan, the megalithic stones of Carnac (a definite must-see), Saint-Cado (an 1100 AD Church and fishing village), and Port Louis (visiting the Citadel). Each of these sites were amazing!
The apartment is a very nice size. There is one nice sized bedroom on the main floor with access to the balcony and an attached bathroom and nice waterfall shower. On the second floor there are 2 bedrooms with twin beds which can be placed separate or together to make a king sized bed. In the upstairs hallway is another bathroom with a bathtub. The kitchen was well stocked with supplies to make meals. Dishwasher and washer and dryer for laundry is available, which was very helpful.
The apartment is on the 4th floor, and the apartment has an elevator which can fit about 4 people comfortably, or you can run up the stairs. The view from the wrap-around balcony is very nice. Beautiful to see the Cathedral all lit up at night. We rented a minivan for our group, and were appreciative of the parking available to this unit, which is kitty-corner across the street. I was worried, reading a prior review regarding the small parking spots, but we had absolutely no problems parking a mini-van and found that only about 1/2 the parking spots were utilized during our time there.
We came to Vannes from the United States, to visit the city of our ancestors. We received some wonderful help from the Vannes Archives Department, and learned some new information about our family, located one of the ancestral homes that has been perfectly maintained along with grave-sites of relatives. Upon departure, we found out from Gascon that we had been looking in the direction of this ancestral home, from the balcony, all week! Amazing!
The Owner, Gascon, was very accommodating and friendly, meeting us upon arrival and departure. We will definitely recommend this place to our relatives who may also want to make the trip over from the United States, to experience the beautiful city of our ancestors!
This apartment was well appointed (except for no towels or toiletries like shampoo or even a hand towel in the bathroom) for a short stay. It was small and the couch was very uncomfortable but was a decent place to stay to explore this beautiful town. The owner was helpful (but not an English speaker) and we appreciated his trying to help with the poor wi-fi situation. Unfortunately it negatively impacted our experience there as we were really in need of it upon arrival and after. FYI: It is up some narrow stairs so those with heavy bags or mobility problems be aware.
