Très agréable séjour au sein de cette maison à l'équipement parfait. Je rêve des enfants pour le bonheur des parentes.
Vicky, Ian, Jamie, Josh & Charlie. Cornwall. August 2020
Thank you very much for the most relaxing stay. We really appreciated all of the wonderful facilities, the playroom was amazing & the heated pool kept the little ones entertained & allowed us to relax! By far the best holiday property for children we have stayed in.
Thank you for your hospitality & wine tips!
We will definitely be back and look forward to coming back soon. Thank you for everything.
Scott, Hayley, Molly & Evie. Kent, August 2020
Like many, our original holiday plans were scuppered by COVID, but a last minute scramble brought us to Le Vieux Café following a cancellation – and we were incredibly lucky. A beautiful house in a beautiful location with such hospitable hosts. Everything you need is here, such a perfect place to unwind, but there is so much to see and do in the area too.
A week was nowhere near long enough. The house is enough to bring us back, but the long list of sites we didn’t get to see and beaches we didn’t visit almost guarantees we’ll be back.
Jason & Annette’s tips & advice are incredibly helpful, it has been great having them to hand.
Thank you so much for a lovely holiday.
PS: Le Cul de Poule in La Faute sur Mer & Coté Bistrot in La Tranche sur Mer are good places to eat (in our opinion !)
Julien, Aurilie, Louis & Joseph (& Amis). London, Juillet 2020
Nous avons passé de très agréables vacances en Vendée dans votre gîte. La piscine, la salle de jeux, la terrasse, le BBQ …. Nous avons profité au maximum de vos équipements et c’était parfait.
Nos amis et proches qui nous ont visités ont aussi apprécié le calme et la région.
La Vendée, Lairoux, La Tranche, pour nos 1ère vacances post-lockdown avec notre bébé, c’était idéal !!!
Merci encore et à bientôt !!!
Jules, Chris, Joey & Macintosh the Scottie. Hull, December 2019
A return visit to Maison Lairoux! Thank you Annette & Jason for your warm welcome, hospitality and kindness which Mac most certainly appreciated! We enjoyed spending time on the beach at La Faute, with fabulous walks, pottering around Vouvant and of course celebrating a rather 'French' New Year's Eve with you, which was excellent.
You have both again gone above and beyond to make our stay in the Vendée truly memorable.
See you very very soon! Lots of love and all the best for a successful 2020!
Michelle, Wouter & Lil’ Tara. Den Haag. September 2019
We’ve had an amazing time. What a special place you have here. Thank you!
PS: Thanks for looking after Michelle and her Thumb!
Steeper/Maddison families. Derbyshire. August 2019.
Another great time spent in your well-equipped home. So relaxing. We have all enjoyed it – even the noisy children!! I’m sure they will always remember it.
Thank you for all your kind hospitality and super bike rides.
Clare, Neil, Emily & Eva. Ashford, August 2019
Thank you Annette and Jason for another fantastic holiday ( our 7th time here!) Lots of relaxation and time to enjoy the beautiful pool and gardens. As usual we enjoyed some lovely evenings with food and drinks and lots of laughs. We had brilliant trips out in La Rochelle, Vouvant and Fontenay Le Comte and a great afternoon on the beach near La Grière. Emily and Eva enjoyed the market in La Tranche and most importantly the Churros!! This is such a relaxing place and a home from home with everything you could ever need. I have no doubt that we will be back before long.
Katie, Aidan, Harry, Emily, Thomas, Sally & David, Cork (Ireland) & Flore (UK). July 2019
Huge thank you to Jason & Annette for being fab hosts. Our stay at Maison Lairoux has been great. Very well equipped house, everything you could want to make your stay enjoyable.
Children loved the pool & facilities in the games room. Garden beautiful and scenery magnificent.
We enjoyed visits to Puy du Fou which we would highly recommend. The beaches were lovely – we found some quiet beaches before La Tranche sur Mer. Mervent Zoo, O’Gliss Water Park, markets at La Faute & Port Bourgenay were great (children enjoyed). Les Sables d’Olonne – The Blokhaus – visited the WW2 hospital.
Restaurant at Lavaud – L’Aubraie – was excellent.
Enjoyed our drinks evening & thanks Jason for help with ICT.
Hope to see you both in the future – we’ve had a lovely time!!!
Lucy, Jason, Grace & Harley. Reading, July 2019
Another enjoyable week here at Maison Lairoux. Hosts fab, pool fab, place fab. Visited the Jardin Dumaine in Luçon as recommended by Jason. Very peaceful. The kids went swimming at La Belle Henriette – shame the tide was out.
La Faute is worth a visit – not too busy. La Tranche is also a lovely place, but busier in the lovely weather.
Beran Family. London & New Zealand. June 2019.
Annette and Jason – your place is just lovely. We found it to be ideal for our family.
Grandparents, Raewyn & George from New Zealand and our son Karl, daughter-in-law, Julia and grandsons Oliver and William from London. There is plenty to see around the area which we enjoyed – but mostly we stayed around the villa where the adults could relax around the pool and garden, and the children enjoying the pool, garden and the superb playroom full of treasures – absolutely no need to bring any toys! The gym was also used by some of us.
The Bagette Machine was a huge hit with the children – a short walk down the road. We really enjoyed our Thursday night meal and drinks with you both and the couple from the other house – great night! See you in NZ!
Wim, Cecile, Andreas, Helena & Nine. Belgium, April 2019
Thanks to Jason and Annette. We had the opportunity to spend a wonderful week here in the Vendée. You do not need really to leave the domain to have a fun day. The garden and the view itself are already beautiful and relaxing.
Another nice thing you really have to try is – when it’s dark and all the streetlights are off, you’ll see a lot of stars – it’s really impressive!!
Also, the park ‘Le Puy du Fou’ is something you have to see when you’re here.
Thank you a lot for this beautiful holiday! We hope to come back again one day.
Patience, Dave & Min, plus Rollo & Flora the dogs! Le Petit Pressigny. February 2019
Thank you Annette and Jason for a wonderful stay! Your generous hospitality has been so much appreciated – both by us and the dogs! The Gîte has been an excellent ‘home from home’ – well-equipped, warm and comfortable.
We have enjoyed fabulous walks on the beach at La Faute; a day out in historic La Rochelle; a beautiful sunny day on the ile de Ré – where we highly recommend St. Martin. Rollo swam like a beaver when we walked around the Lac du Finfarine and hot chocolate was a welcome ‘warm up’ at Port Bourgenay. We highly recommend the Equinoxe restaurant in La Tranche.
Camille et famille, plus Telemak le chien, Normandie. Avril 2018.
Très bonne location, la maison est spacieuse, propre, avec des salles de bain toutes neuves, une cuisine bien équipée. Equipements assez incroyables avec une piscine chauffée, une salle de jeu très fournie, jeux de plage, console, télé et lecteur dvd, collection impressionnante de dvd, de livres... et sans oublier la salle de sport en libre accès avec tapis de course, vélos en tout genre.... joli jardin avec une belle vue, on nous a même proposé de cueillir des poireaux du potager pour le dîner ! Nous avons été très chaleureusement accueillis par Annette et Jason très souriants et toujours prêts à répondre à nos questions, et des délicieuses spécialités nous attendaient dans la cuisine. Bref nous sommes vraiment ravis de notre séjour. (Revue sur AirBnB).

Superb séjour chez vous! Merci pour votre accueil. Votre maison est très bien équipée pour les petits et les grands. A bientôt!
Séraphin, Cindy, Damien, Juline, Samy et Mohamed. Le Mans, Mai 2018.
Excellent séjour à Maison Lairoux! La maison est vraiement très bien équipée et nous avons passé un excellent week-end! Merci pour votre amabilité et votre disponibilté! A bientôt!
Et sur AirBnB: Cette location est très agréable avec une grande piscine, un grand jardin et des propriétaire très accueillant. De plus, la cuisine est grande et bien équipée. Les salles de sport et de jeux sont très bien fournies aussi (table de ping-pong, billard, console, jeu de société...). Cette maison est située à 20 min de la tranche-sur-mer se qui reste agréable, et il y a tous les équipements (parasols, bouées, jeux de plage...) possible à disposition pour passer de bon moment entre amis ou en famille sur la plage. Je recommande cette location pour les vacances.
Vicky, Alan, Tom, Emily, Steve, Dagmar & Samantha. Eastbourne. May/June2018.
Thank you very much for a great welcome and wonderful stay in Lairoux. We have enjoyed delicious food eating at the Phare Ouest in Ste Gemme and the Ardoise Gourmand in Luçon. Fantastic day at Puy du Fou as always - each time getting bigger and better. Body boarding at our favourite beach - Les Conches. We have been trying to think of something Annette & Jason have missed to make our stay more comfortable, but we have failed!!! Thank you once again. Hope to be back again!!
Diarmid, Katie, Lachlan, Diarmid, Martin & Margaret. Kinghorn & Perth. July 2018
Very pleasant holiday and a wrench to leave. House and grounds so nice we didn’t have to go far to be entertained. Would recommend a walk in the gardens at Luçon, the old town at La Rochelle and for a taster of the waterways – The Plaisir d’Eau at Curzon.
Auberge de la Court d’Aron was good for food and ambience. Thanks to Jason and Annette for all their hospitality!
Isabelle, Stéphane, Enola & Méleena. Betheny. July 2018. Plus Heywa & Jake the dogs.
Un second séjour tout aussi réussi que le premier l’an passé. Jason et Annette ont tout prévu pour que nos vacances soient parfait. Nous apprécions beaucoup le calme du lieu et la gentillesse des propriétaires – milles mercis pour tout !
Nous vous disons à l’année prochaine puisque nous avons déjà réservé pour 2019.
Kirsty, Craig, Sam, Tom, Lewis & Sharon. Staffordshire. August 2018.
Fabulous holiday - our 2 weeks have flown by! Maison Lairoux is a complete home from home: thank you to Annette & Jason for making our stay so great, nothing was too much trouble.
We’ve enjoyed the pool and gardens, visited local beaches (Les Conches was amazing for body boarding), went to the Puy du Fou, O’Gliss Water Park, the list goes on. Absolutely brilliant wake boarding at Atlantic Wake Park.
We’ve had such a chilled out holiday and are really sad to leave. We will definitely be back as there is still so much we want to do in this beautiful area
Ewen, Carolina, Little Ewen, Mark and Harriet. Hondarribia, Spain. August 2018
We have had a fabulous time, we had everything we needed and also it was easy to find peace and quiet when it was needed. It has been a great opportunity for sharing some days with our friends! Another adventure to remember!! Muchas Gracias!
