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 O'Fun 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.

Taxe de Séjour / Tourist Tax
This holiday property is located in a commune (village or town) that charges a tourist tax to all paying visitors over the age of 18 years old. The tax helps local communes finance advertising, marketing, events, and initiatives to develop tourism.

The tax is paid per person, per night basis, and the charge varies depending upon whether the property is Classified (Star rated by an official organisation) or not. The charge is typically set between 0.40€ and 4.20€ depending upon where the commune is located and the classification level.

When you go through the booking process, the rental costs shown in the tariff table (per week/night) do not include this tax, this will show as an 'Additional Cost' on the form once you have clicked on 'Continue' after choosing your dates on the calendar.

Initially, the tax will be calculated for all members of your holiday group - including children under 18 years old. Once we receive your completed form, we will revise the total Tourist Tax chargeable to only include the adults in your group. This is a quirk of our booking system as it is only capable to add additional costs for all group members.

L’Ecurie : Moira & Michael, Wales. June 2022
We have had a lovely week and enjoyed our first visit to the Vendée. Annette and Jason have been wonderful hosts and have made our stay so comfortable with a very well equipped gite. The pool and games room facilities have been great.
A special thanks to Jason for sorting out our access to create a ‘Smart TV’ setting, and the outside wi-fi has been fab.
Thank you for the lovely welcome gifts, much appreciated.

L’Ecurie: Jo, Martin, Sam & Harry, Devon. June 2022
What a wonderful place, attention to detail is 2nd to none. I want to stay forever. An exceptional week for weather 38.2 degrees in the shade!
Annette & Jason have been perfect hosts & I will be passing the word back home to all friends. We will definitely be back. Thank you so much.

L'Ecurie: Bob, Rita and Dougal (The Yorkiepoo). Bodmin, May 2022
This is the first time for many years we have stayed in a village setting, and we are so glad we did. The house is comfortable, clean and has everything you need for a relaxing break away from it all. You can, in a very short while, be at the beach and a host of other attractions if you want a more lively stay.
Your hosts, Annette & Jason, cannot be more welcoming or helpful. It is not hard to imagine a return visit in the future and just shutting down after the more hectic parts of a long vacation.
P.S. Sorry forgot to say thank you for the wine & biscuits on arrival and your hospitality on the evening of departure.
In the words of Arnie "I (we) will be back' - that's if you will have us!!

Emmanuel, Alexandra, Maxime & Louis. Paris, Décembre 2021

Une magnifique semaine ! Un accueil très sympathique avec plein d’attentions. Annette a pensé à tout dans le gîte : plaids, bougie, cuisine incroyablement équipée, un livret d’accueil hyper complet, une super literie.
Le jardin et la vue est tout simplement incroyable !
L’idée de à salle de jeux a été un succès pour nos ados et pour nous. Nous avons aussi beaucoup apprécié les soirées billard en famille.
Merci pour tout1 C’était top !

Riza, Andres & Esra, plus Spikey & Dobby the dogs. Netherlands. September 2021
Thank you so much for your hospitality!
We felt so welcome, we and our 2 dogs (hope your cat is ok!). You managed to create a piece of heaven on earth. The most stunning sunsets, the garden and the swimming pool - it’s all just perfect.
The house itself is comfortable and nice, and there is everything you can think of and ore is in there. No need to bring anything with you, because it is already there.
The area is full of special places, due to our lack of GPS skills it took us some extra time but we managed to see the highlights and it really tastes like more. Loved our evenings together, talking about all kind of interesting things and having fun.
Whenever you want to come to Holland please contact us. Looking forward to seeing you and your beautiful place again

Neil, Clare and Eva. Kent, August 2021
Spent a week here with friends and their family in the ‘big house’. After a year away it was amazing to be back. Always a sense of peace and calm sitting overlooking the Marais from our little table and watching the birds and butterflies around us. Annette & Jason as ever, work very hard to make this place special, and succeed many times over.
Thank you both once again for some beautiful memories.

Lizzy, Andrew, Beatrice & Charlotte, Worcester. August 2021
A wonderful fortnight at L’Ecurie!
Thank you Annette & Jason for your warmth & hospitality; you really have thought of everything. Lovely property, comfy beds, well equipped kitchen, beautiful pool and the most fabulous games room.
We hope to be back in the future and would recommend Maison Lairoux to anyone

Famille de Broqueville & Nuts the dog, Belgium. Juillet 2021
Merci pour le très bon séjour passé chez vous. Les délicates attentions : apéro, biscuits, vin… Votre gîte est très confortable et super bien équipé, il y a vraiment tout. C’est super et le jardin, piscine, salle de jeux et sport très, très bien. Bonne continuation.

Famille Boey-Vanneville. Belgium. July 2021
It was a nice environment to have a vacation in. The weather could be better, but we visited a lot because of the weather. We enjoyed the welcome drinks very much. Keep up the good work.

Janet & Michael, Jersey. June 2021
We decided at last minute to have a break in France and where better than at L'Ecurie in the Vendée!
A couple of days of rain didn't spoil anything. Chilling by the pool and eating langoustines (vivant) from the market in Luçon (open Wed & Sat mornings).
Lovely new restaurants we tried. La Bastide in Luçon (formerly La Mirabelle) open 7/7. Maison Desamy in Mareuil-sur-Lay does a very good lunchtime menu for 25 Euros (3 courses). Also visited one of our favourites La Pousse Pied at La Tranche sur Mer. It is a one Michelin Star only from 35 Euros menu but excellent.
Thank you once again Annette & Jason for our evening drinks and catch up!

Laurent, Marie, Rozeun et Maëlla de Nantes. May 2021

Nous avons passé un séjour très agréable. Le gîte est charmant, la vue est belle, les équipements sont au top : piscine, salle de jeux, salle de sport pour les courageux.
La météo n’était pas trop au rendez-vous mais nous avons quand même réussi à piquer une tête !
Nous reviendrons sans aucun doute ! Merci pour votre accueil.

April, Jérémy, Benjamin, Clément et Manon de Rennes. Mai 2021
Gîte très accueillant, idéal pour passer de très bonnes (bons) vacances ou week-ends.
Beaucoup d’activités à faire dans le gîte, on ne risque pas de s’ennuyer. Superbe piscine avec vue, l’apéro était génial au bord de celle-ci. Merci Annette & Jason. À la prochaine.

The Abels & their 3 Irish Water Spaniels. Charente, March 2021
We had a fantastic stay at the L’Ecurie gîte at Maison Lairoux. Annette and Jason were welcoming hosts and the gîte contains everything you would ever need to have a great holiday. We visited with our 3 x Irish Water Spaniels and the gîte was ideally suited for both them and us. We can highly recommend the accommodation and the easy access to nearby beautiful long Sandy beaches. We will definitely return to this accommodation and have already passed their details to several friends who own dogs and our dog groomer who will pass this on to her clients 😀 Thank you so much for a brilliant holiday ❤️. See you again soon.

The Brown Family & Rosie & Rollo. Pays de la Loire, March 2021
We certainly enjoyed our short stay here in the Gite L'Ecurie in Lairoux.
It was very comfortable and well-equipped for a family visit.
The Wifi was excellent, especially needed when you have a teenager in tow.
Our favourite time was evening drinks, with something local in our glasses, and sitting on the terrace looking out over the estuary.
We also enjoyed our time walking on the beaches, which are close, and visiting La Rochelle. Lots to do even in winter.
We shall return!

De Chestret Famille et Russell le Chien. Belgique. September 2020.
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.

Isabelle, Stéphane, Enola, Méleena, plus Jake & Heywa les Chiens! Reims. July 2020.

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.

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.

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!
