The boat was easy to find, but was not ready when we arrived at 11. Then there was the French lunch 12 until 2, so we couldn't get the boat handover completed until 3pm. If you planned to sail on the same day, then it will be a late start. The French marinas are good quality, but facilities lack any maintenance. So listings show showers, but access is limited to Captinairie office opening times which often don't include weekends. Showers maybe cold etc etc. Pity as they could be very good. Winds variable and change quickly in October, so plans need to be flexible. Grand Large fit out very suitable for 5 adults, better than equivalent Jeanneaus. Every friendly and helpful people everywhere, much better experience than we found last year in Sicily!
In all would go back and do it again.
