Lairoux and the Southern Vendée

The village of Lairoux is only 15km from the fantastic beaches of the Southern Vendée. The area is great for cycling or walking through country lanes and is on the edge of the local Wetlands (Marais Communal de Lairoux), where you can see many migratory birds and other local wildlife. We have even put a telescope in the holiday home so that you can watch the nearby nesting storks!

There is a wide selection of activities all within 30 minutes of the house; such as The Indian Forest Adventure Park, The Chateau des Aventuriers and a Karting Track.

Further afield is the amazing Puy du Fou Theme Park - with its Gladiators, Vikings, Musketeers, Medieval Knights and Bird of Prey show. Not to be missed!

La Rochelle and the Ile de Ré are both popular tourist attractions, as is the Marais Poitevin network of canals and ruined abbeys.

Janet & Michael, Jersey, Channel Islands. February 2016
Our 3rd visit to L’Ecurie! A great place to stay for a short break to go for lunches - lots of lovely restaurants in the area - St Georges (St Juire Champgillon) and Court d’Aron (St Cyr en Talmondais) to name a few. Also to restock on the lovely Vendeen wine - a good distributer in Mareuil sur Lay. Thanks Annette & Jason - we will return.

Mick & Lynne, Malaga, Spain and Graham & Liz, Hampshire. March 2016
Restful week with friends living apart. Facilities excellent, when weather not so good made use of the gym & games room. Loved the ‘hide’ - especially seeing the coypu in their natural habitat. Enjoyed Luçon and La Rochelle & a good walk along the canals.
Accommodation excellent - thank you Annette & Jason.

Angela & Derek, Cléré du Bois. France. April 2016.
Lovely stay - well equipped gite with comfortable bed. Many thanks.

Sam, John & Alethea, York. May 2016 (Only 3 days unfortunately!)
What a lovely location, fantastic view and superb hosts!
Thank you so much for a friendly, comfortable and relaxing stay! Our daughter has loved running around the grounds and playing with the toys etc.. Every morning she has woken asking “can we go outside?” I think that is testament to the beautiful surroundings.
Thank you Annette & Jason. I’m sure you will see us again!

Paulina, Richard, Ollie & Lola, Guernsey. May/June 2016
A totally fantastic spot with something to offer for everyone. Peace, quiet & views for mum & Dad, games room & pool for the kids. Lovely gite with everything that we could possibly need. (Lola loved the strawberries!)
Karting at Chateau d’Olonne was fun; zoo at Les Sables d’Olonne was great & not busy. Water Park looks like it will be good - but not open just yet.
Thanks to Annette & Jason for making us feel very welcome.

Brenda & Brian, with Jake & Benson, Oxfordshire. June 2016
We have been coming to this gite since 2013 and despite the weather this year we have had a relaxing holiday. Annette & Jason are wonderful hosts and nothing is too much trouble - any problems, just ask. We love The Vendée Region and this gite!!
We have booked again for 2 weeks next year. We have visited La Pergola Restaurant in l’Aiguillon-sur-Mer - excellent - booking is advisable and if you can tear yourself away, a visit to the Theme Park - Puy du Fou is well worth a visit, and for rainy days the Motor Museum is good.
Our 2 dogs love their visits to France and we keep them on leads to avoid any confrontation with the cats.
Thank you once again for making our holiday so enjoyable. See you next year.

Claire, Stuart, Charlie & Lily, Northants. June 2016
We had a lovely time staying here, the facilities are amazing (especially for the children), the games room had all we needed and the size/depth/temperature of the pool was perfect for the children. In terms of places to visit, we loved the beaches at La Tranche and Les Conches; La Rochelle and the aquarium is a good day out; we very much enjoyed the new O’Gliss Water Park (tip - get one of the clusters of 4 sunbeams wit a sun cover!)
Thanks for your hospitality Annette and Jason - I’m sure we’ll be back!
