Lairoux and the Southern Vendée

The Cornflowers is located in one of the hamlets of Lairoux and is only 18km from the sandy beaches of the Southern Vendée. The area is great for cycling and walking - wandering through quiet country lanes. It is on the edge of the local Wetlands (Marais Communal de Lairoux), where you can see many migratory birds and other local wildlife.

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.

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.

Reviews for The Cornflowers

Beverley & Steve, September 2022
Our second time here at The Cornflowers and still wonderful! So peaceful, so calm and so relaxing. We enjoyed the pool and the sunshine. La Tranche sur Mer and La Faute have been enjoyable (as ever!) with lots to do - especially the beach at La Tranche.
The new restaurant/patisserie called Le Moulin de Cécile is fabulous…fabulous lemon meringue!
We'll definitely make it a hat-trick and return.

The Roberts family, August/Sept 2022
Thank you so much for such a fabulous week at the Cornflowers. What a wonderful week we have had with such great friends. The house is perfect and furnished beautifully, and we have spent plenty of time relaxing by your wonderful pool.
Visits to Les Conches, La Tranche sur Mer - wonderful beaches and a wonderful day cycling in the Ile de R
é. Loved the indoor market in Luçon and visited Vouvant which was very pretty.
Fabulous meal at Moulin de C
écile just outside of the village which we would definitely recommend.

The Kays family. August 2022
Wonderful location and a lovely place to stay. Even on the cloudy days, the pool was perfect for relaxing. Great restaurants in La Tranche sur Mer, and the festival in Luçon was marvellous.
Day out at the Puy du Fou is a must, haven't experienced anything like it - WOW!!

The Martin & Bartleman families. Oxfordshire, August 2022
What a wonderful 2 weeks! We have had a brilliant holiday with all the family – 3 generations together. The house is perfect and the pool was a huge hit especially with temperatures hitting 38-40 degrees!!
This is our second stay at The Cornflowers and lots of special memories have been made. We can’t wait to return again.

The Barreau & L
écrivain families, July 2022
We stayed 1 week at The Cornflowers. The house is beautiful! Thank you so much for an amazing vacation. We had so much fun!
The pool and barbecue were a big hit. The kitchen is especially well-furnished, which we really liked and took great use of.
Thank you for this great house, we would definitely recommend it to others.

Victoria & Sam. June 2022
What a week ! Thank you so much for an incredible week stay at the idyllic Cornflowers. It really felt like we were at a home away from home..
Particular places that EVERYONE MUST VISIT are the Ile de Ré and la Tranche sur Mer ! However, staying by the pool in the sunshine was just what the doctor ordered! AMAZING POOL!! Thank you so much for everything and we can’t wait to come again the same time next year!

Sarah, Matt, Ernie & Martha. May/June 2022
Thank you for a lovely two week stay at The Cornflowers. The house was perfect for us and the pool a massive hit, especially with the children. One day Ernie spent a whole SIX hours in there. Weather has been great and we have enjoyed exploring the area. Loved Green Venice (Marais Poitevin/Venise Verte) and the children love O’Fun Park for a great day out.
We all loved a day out in La Rochelle. Fantastic wildlife and delicious food. The bakery in the nearby village is fabulous.
Favourite restaurants – La Trattoria Italiano in Luçon and L’Aubraie in Lavaud.

Jones Family, Cheshire. May 2019
House is beautiful, although we hardly spent any time inside. Beautiful furniture and comfy clean beds. Pool and patio used all the time. Great garden for Eric (the dog) to play and shelter from the sun. We had a lovely relaxing time. Accommodation extremely well stocked. Will be back for sure, also Annette was lovely & helpful too!
* the only negative (sorry) is patio floor - this could be nicer. Concrete is not a good look.
In reply: the patio has now been changed from concrete to a paved terrace! Much nicer!

Craig & Jordan families. May/June 2018
I really enjoyed my stay and mostly enjoyed the Wii. My friend Stanley enjoyed playing Lego Star Wars. We used the paints and it was very fun. I wish we'd had more time to enjoy the really comfy beds. The surrounding towns were really fun to visit, and I feel as though it were my second home. My personal favourite game on the Wii was Carnival.
Your holiday cottage gets an infinite number of stars from me! Also, the pool was brilliant and my three year old friend, Patrick, learnt how to jump in! Thank you for everything. PS: we had a very warm welcome.

The Wilsons, Smiths, Dors & Racines. Kent. Aug/Sept 2017.

Lovely house – we’ve all had a wonderful holiday. The pool was well used!! Thank you so much for letting us rent your beautiful home.

Nieve, Age 11. Rutland. August 2017
The Cornflowers was great! The pool was refreshing and really nice. The house was spacious and felt like home. We went to the Puy du Fou and that was great – a ‘Must do’ day. La Tranche is a recommendation from us as well. I thought the garden was beautiful too. It has been a great holiday. Thank you Cornflowers!

The Cockmans & friends. Burbage. August 2017
Pool well used as weather was beautiful. House comfortable – some of the comfiest beds we’ve slept in in France.
Puy du Fou an hour away – stunning – worth the long day. La Rochelle – lovely for an evening, as is the L’Aubraie restaurant only 10 minutes away – river setting.
All in all – Fab 2 weeks.

The Whalen Family, Elsmere. August 2017
The Cornflowers is nice and it is beautiful and magical. We love the house. We spend most of our time by the pool and if anybody is reading this that’s new!
The Cornflowers is magical because there’s a fairy garden and last year we came here because all of the Whalen’s love cornflowers!
We had a lovely time at La Rochelle and the weather was ☺️
Thank you very much – Annette, you’re the best!

The Vowles & Steel Families, Wraxall, Bristol. July/August 2017
A wonderful 2 weeks. The weather has been kind to us. Loved the O’Gliss Water Park and the pedalos on the river. Kids have enjoyed it so much we have booked to return next year!
Amazing – we loved the Ile de Ré and La Rochelle too. Thanks for a lovely 2 weeks.

Mary Roberts, Grendon. July 2017
We have had such a wonderful girls holiday. What a perfect place to stay and so comfortable. It really is a beautiful holiday home. We have so enjoyed our days by the pool but equally enjoyed our days out to the Ile de Ré, Luçon and the beach.
Food has been delicious, rooms comfortable – what more can we say – perfect. We’ll be back!

Simone Dussleby, Yorkshire. July 2017
I have fallen in love with The Cornflowers. Everything one could ask for. Lazy afternoons spent by the pool, local area to walk. Luçon market provided some fabulous artisan foods and two great day trips to La Tranche and the Ile de Ré – so worth a visit!

Jodie Redden, Northamptonshire. July 2017
Lovely lazy week spent in this beautiful house with great friends. Food sourced from the market at Luçon and a fabulous meal out at St Cyr en Talmondais. Visit to the Ile de Ré – hired bikes and relaxed in the town’s many restaurants! Will be back again.

Kirsten Knight, Northumberland. July 2017
Such a beautiful house with so much care, thought and imagination put into the décor and furnishings. Everything was perfect! Luçon market provided delicious lunches and suppers, excellent local wines and cheeses. Cycled at the ile de Ré, visited La Tranche sur Mer and enjoyed fields of sunflowers. Our time lazing around the pool and sitting in the sun was fabulous! See you again soon Cornflowers!

The Maidment Family, Bedford. June 2017
We have had a really lovely holiday. Weather & pool were perfect for the first week; low temperatures and rain during the second week, but this dd not stop the fun.
Particularly enjoyed Sunday market at La Faute sur Mer, La Rochelle and the Ile Noirmoutier (Splendid Friday Market)
House comfortable, found everything that we needed.
Thank you for a great time, we loved the house & saw the Hoopoe in our first week!
