Nous avons été superbement accueilli par Annette et Jason. La maison est très bien équipée et qui plus est accepte les chiens. La piscine est entourée de transats très confortables et on peut aussi bénéficier d'une salle de jeux avec ping pong, billard et de nombreux DVD. Il y a aussi une salle de fitness avec de nombreuses machines. Bref on avait de quoi s'occuper en plus des nombreuses visites dans le environs ( marais poitevin, plages, la Rochelle, île de ré,...)
Mike & Jan, Jersey. September 2020
Delighted that we managed to visit L’Ecurie this year. Different in September as we usually come for Winter breaks. It has been a fabulous week chilling out by the pool, weather glorious sunny warm 29 degrees, enjoying a glass or 2 of wine with Annette & Jason our very welcoming hosts/friends who are knowledgeable about all of the area.
We enjoyed a new restaurant this time ‘Les Reflets’ at La Roche sur Yon – a Michelin style restaurant – thoroughly recommend – great lunch at 22 Euros. Lovely lunch again at ‘Au Fils de Saison’ sitting out on the terrace – a first for us.
Thanks once again Annette & Jason. A Bientôt.
Beverley, Steve, Jackson & Chris, Bristol. July/August 2020
Thank you Annette & Jason for a wonderful month at L’Ecurie – our 4th visit here ! The welcome, hospitality and friendliness is outstanding – they are both great hosts and friends. L’Ecurie is so well equipped with everything you need, especially the fabulous pool, games room and sunsets. We’ve spent so many lovely evenings by the pool, having BBQs and sharing the ‘odd’ glass of vin.
The boys (aged 19 & 21) loved the Atlantic Wake Park and the Wipe Out circuit at L’Aiguillon sur Mer ; and we all loved and enjoyed the zoo in Mervent, where the animals have lots of freedom.

Cette année encore, nous avons passé de merveilleuses vacances ici.
Merci pour cet accueil chaleureux, nous avons passé du bon temps en la compagnie de Jason et Annette !
Nous avons aussi bien profité de la piscine !
Merci encore pour tout ce que vous avez fait, pour votre bonne humeur et toutes vos petites attentions !
Nous avons hâte de revenir vous voir !
A l’année prochaine !
Michel, Kathleen, Thomas & Poline (& Noah the Dog) Belgium. July 2020
Thank you very much for your welcoming us as if we came home.
We have enjoyed our stay at Maison Lairoux!! It was really relaxing, the swimming pool, reading in the garden, playing games. Visiting little towns like Jard sur Mer, L’Aiguillon sur Mer etc.. and especially Ile de Ré!
Also, our dog Noah enjoyed it, certainly during the walk in the Valley de l’Yon
Wayne & Joan, with Sebastian the dog. Mirambeau, France. Christmas 2019
We have had a lovely peaceful Christmas - very relaxing. We found Jason & Annette very friendly and helpful.
Would recommend Maison Lairoux to friends, and Sebbie loved his daily trips to the beach. Thank you both.
Wanda, Angelo & Jaimie, plus Cid the Chihuahua. Avers-sur Oise. October 2019.
Nous revoilà chez Annette et Jason. Nous avons pris nos habitudes puisque c'est la troisième fois que nous réservons. La Vendée et ses environs nous permettent des incursions pittoresques sur les traces de son histoire.
À bientôt et merci pour votre accueil.
Allister & Susie. Wantage. Sept/October 2019
We have had the most relaxing break, in a home from home, prepared by our wonderful hosts Annette & Jason. They've both made some amazing recommendations for things to do and places to eat. We even discovered some of our own …. the Panier de Crabes in La Rochelle had fantastic fruits de mer.
Jason was also a brilliant bike guide & provided great company on our trip. Thanks so much!!
Val and Hugh. Carhaix, France. September 2019.
It has been really good to be in L’Ecurie for the sedond time (our last visit was in February 2014) at a totally different season.
The bird watching has been fascinating, the walks on the Marais delightful, and the garden of William Christie absolutely fabulous – a real treat.
The pool has been great to enjoy at the end of the day.
Many thanks again to Jason and Annette for their hospitality and friendliness.
Jenny, Luke, Sophie & Ben. Herfordshire. September 2019.
We had a fantastic week at L’Ecurie – thank you Jason and Annette for being amazing hosts! Our highlights included the Marais Poitevin, Mervent Zoo, Mourat Vineyard, and we enjoyed walks around the Marais Communal and the Jardin Dumaine in Luçon.
The weather was great, and we sat outside every night admiring the view!
Thank you for your recommendations Jason and Annette – we hope to be back soon!
Anna, Ian, Lucy & Jack. Duffield. August 2019
Having loved our one week holidays here over the last two years, two weeks this year was amazing !
We had those blissful lazy days, where we didn’t need to leave as we had everything we needed here. The pool & games room as ever entertained the children (& adults).
Locally we had some great days out; The Vendée Aquarium, Zoo & Château des Aventuriers. We loved the beaches at La Tranche sur Mer, La Faute sur Mer & La Grière. As always, bike rides with Jason were a fab experience, such a perfect way to see the beautiful countryside!
Annette & Jason’s hospitality was as wonderful as always, thank you both.
Jules, Chris, Joey & Macintosh. Hull August 2019
This was our first visit to the Vendée and certainly won’t be our last! Jason & Annette, what can we say, as thank you doesn’t seem to be enough!
Fantastic hosts, so friendly and nothing was too much trouble for you (even Macintosh!). Great recommendations especially Vallée de Yon, Parc Floral, O’Gliss Water Park, J Mourat Wines and the friendly staff & excellent food at L’Aubraie in Lavaud.
Maison Lairoux is a brilliant family and dog friendly holiday and you both made our stay extra special. A bientôt.
Antonio, Sarah, Matteo & Filippo, Enfield. July 2019.
This was our 2nd visit to L’Ecurie and the Vendée – and we loved it! Annette & Jason – you are great hosts and the you so much for your hospitality & welcome. We really enjoyed chatting with you. We loved visiting Vincent sur Jard (both boys liked it). We also recommend going to the Vallée de L’Yon – it’s stunning & worth bringing a picnic.
Puy du Fou is also a must see! Matteo & Filippo loved the games room, swings and pool! I’m sure we will be back again soon for another visit. Thanks again!
Isabelle, Stéphane, Enola, Méleena, plus Heywa & Jake les chiens. Reims, July 2019
Encore un merveilleux séjour chez Annette & Jason ! Nous avons bien profité de la piscine sous des températures caniculaires !
Mille mercis pour vos attentions et votre bonne humeur.
A bientôt au mois d’avril !
Kyara, Yves, Sandra, Réné, Linda & Bazil (the dog). Belgium, July 2019
It was a very nice house to stay for our vacation. It’s very nice to relax with the swimming pool and have fun in the games room.
Jason and Annette are very friendly and are always there to help with advice.
The Kubb games are very nice to play with everyone.
A place to remember and maybe we come back in the coming years. The Kubb Team!!
Jenny, Gary, Chris & Lucy. Dublin, July 2019
Many thanks, Annette & Jason. We have had an enjoyable and relaxing holiday. The gîte is lovely, with plenty of space for everyone. We had lovely weather so were delighted to have the use of the pool. We enjoyed the other facilities too – the gym & well-stocked games room. We loved your 3 cats!
Plenty to see & do – we had a good time in La Rochelle, Ile de Ré and some fine beaches. The guys enjoyed their cycles with Jason. We were pleased to join you for drinks & nibbles, while listening to the night time wildlife such as hedgehogs and owls!
Lee & Gaynor, plus Merlin (our dog). Portsmouth, June/July 2019
This was our first visit to l’Ecurie and what a great pair of hosts Jason and Annette were. From the initial greeting to our final day, they were attentive and great hosts. The property was excellent and far exceeded our expectations.
The pool was definitely a welcoming feature especially as we experienced the hottest recorded temperatures during our holiday.
As we brought our family dog – Merlin – Jason and Annette were able to offer some fantastic walks and the Vallée de Yon was particularly stunning. We especially liked the local walks as well as the garden when the weather got too warm.
From the beaches to the countryside, this region has so much to offer and we hope to return soon.
Heather & Edward. Fareham. June 2019
Our third visit to L’Ecurie, although it’s been 6 years since we were last here. Annette & Jason’s friendliness and hospitality are just as amazing as we remembered. You two really do think of absolutely everything anyone might need in a holiday home. We loved seeing the avocets and black-winged stilts (inc. chicks) at the Pointe d’Arcay and so many storks, more black-winged stilts, black kites etc.. etc.. at the local bird hide.
Les Conches for surfing – perfect! Favourite nature spot – La Pointe du l’Aiguillon where we saw turtle doves, linnets, skylarks, a hoopoe and bluethroats ! Thanks for a superb week!
Duffy, Darcy, David & Christine. Kent, June 2019.
Thank you for a lovely holiday.
We enjoyed your flower beds…Oops…jumping and running over flowers… Mummy hopes they grow back. We had wonderful walkies along the beach, woods and rivers. Woof Woof. Love Darcy & Duffy.
Great hospitality, lovely well-equipped home – Stunning View.
Eamonn, Joanna, Emma & Zoe. Co. Wicklow, Ireland. May/June 2019
We had yet again another amazing holiday here at Maison Lairoux for our third holiday here. There is lots to do here at Maison Lairoux with the games room which has lots of things to do including table tennis and an Xbox. Then there is the pool with lots of inflatables (like the Duck!), and the swing in the bottom garden.
We went to Puy du Fou and saw many great shows. The Indian Forest Adventure Park was also a great trip. We did the water jump and lots more.
Had a great time and hope to come again.
Famille Grande, Paris, Mai 2019
Nous voilà à nouveaux en Vendée chez Annette & Jason.
C’est notre deuxième séjour ici. Notre fils Jamie et notre petit chien, Cid, ont déjà leurs habitudes. Un grand merci pour votre accueil et gentillesse. Prochain séjour en Octobre chez vous. A tout bientôt.
Ste, Jo, Linda, Millie & Daniel. Keighley. April 2019.
We have had a lovely week here in Lairoux. The gîte is lovely and spacious and a home from home with everything you could possibly need. The pool and games room have been the highlights for Millie & Daniel (not forgetting the cats). Our highlights have been our visit to Puy du Fou, (comfy shoes essential for the walking involved), the relaxing atmosphere and the beautiful surroundings, views and even the church bells! Best of all - thank you Jason & Annette - nothing was too much trouble, you have been wonderful hosts and we hope to meet again on our next visit.
Stéphane, Isabelle, Enola, Méleena, plus Jake et Heywa (les chiens). Reims, Avril 2019
Encore un séjour réussi grâce à votre gentillesse et votre générosité! Nous avons passé un très bon séjour à l'Ecurie, on s'y sent comme à la maison! Jake et Heywa ont eté très gâtés et ont encore une fois, bien profité du jardin. Nous vous remercions pour l'apéro partagé le jeudi soir et pour le super gâteau aux noix fait par Annette!!! Encore une semaine qui a passé bien trop vite… Nous avons hâte de revenir en juillet!
Merci Annette et Jason pour votre hospitalité; See you in July!
Jenny, Jason, Arthur & Ezra. Bakewell. February 2019
Firstly, thank you for arranging such fantastic sunny weather for our visit. Felt like we had stepped into Spring, but it’s February! But most of all, thank you for your wonderful hospitality and insider knowledge on the region. Thanks to you we found some beautiful beaches and walks.
The cottage is perfect for families, and very well equipped. The games room was a big hit with my boys. See you again soon!

Janet & Michael, Jersey. February 2019
Another great winter break at L’Ecurie with a lovely log fire for the cold evenings.
Enjoyed lovely lunches at ‘’Au Fils des Saisons’’ and ‘’Ardoise Gourmande’’ in Luçon. Lovely lunch also at ‘’La Pousse-Pied’’ in La Tranche sur Mer – this is a Michelin Star Restaurant, but they do a lunch ‘Menu du Marché’ at 19 Euros that changes daily.
Weather sunny so managed walks at La Belle Henriette and the Lac du Finfarine.
Thank you Annette & Jason for your hospitality as always.
