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. October 2018.
Another great Autumnal break staying at L'Ecurie. Weather was amazing for the time of year 24/25 degrees! It was lovely to sit outside the terrace for drinks with Annette & Jason until 10.00pm - a first for mid-October.
Had a great Sunday lunch at Au Fils de Saison in Luçon (hadn't been for a year or two). They did a special 'Vendéen Menu' paired with 2 glasses of wine for 33 euros - superb!
We also tried a new restaurant - Pousse Pied at La Tranche - Menu du Marché at lunchtime - 19 euros - great value - highly recommend. Look forward to Feb 2019.

Angie & Deri, with May, Marley, Timo and Elodie. Jersey. September 2018
Thank you so much Annette & Jason for allowing us to holiday with our four dogs! You have been so friendly and helpful – this has been our best French holiday – and we have been many times to France!
The beauty here is outstanding and you keep an immaculate, fully equipped accommodation and setting. We will highly recommend your luxury holiday home far and wide.
Thank you both for your friendly, kind hospitality. (We did not eat out much as we wanted to experience the amazing sunset view – dinner on the terrace al fresco!
However, dinner at the Auberge de Court d’Aron was superb (they allowed our 4 dogs on the terrace)

Ian, Anna, Lucy & Jack. Duffield. August 2018
Our second visit and another brilliant week, thank you so much Jason & Annette for your fabulous hospitality! I hope a year is enough time to recover for you before we visit again with the whirlwind that is Jack! The children have loved it here, the pool & games room are brilliant and happy kids = happy us!
Thank you for my cycling boot camp Jason I have loved it. What a wonderful way to explore this beautiful area. As always, the beaches are fab & we had a great day in La Rochelle and at the aquarium. Bring on two weeks in 2019!

Neil, Clare, Emily & Eva. Challock, Kent August 2018
Another amazingly relaxing holiday – thank you! We have not ventured too far as usual but enjoyed the pool and the beautiful gardens. We have had great days out at the O’Gliss Water Park, Vouvant and La Rochelle/Ile de Ré – all recommended. Beware the vertical drop slide at the water park! Can’t wait till next year (our 7th visit!!) See you then. Xxx

Paul, Louise, Martha, Hattie & Florence. Hove, August 2018
We’ve had an amazing time - L’Ecurie is fabulous - just like home from home. Jason & Annette are amazing hosts - loved the bike rides & top tips on what to do. Thank you both for everything. We certainly hope to be back….probably 2020.
“We really enjoyed going to Puy du Fou. I would really recommend it because the shows are mind-blowing! (Especially the Romans and the Bird Show) Martha, aged 8.

Sarah, David, Ben & Sophie. London, July 2018
We loved Maison Lairoux - a beautiful house, great pool and the kids couldn’t believe the fabulous games room! We spent most days at the beach - especially loved La Terrière for the great waves for body boarding and the nice café.
We really enjoyed the Château des Aventuriers - thanks for the recommendation Jason. And for something different, we enjoyed Mervent where we hired a boat and then went on to Chassonon (Lac) where there is a lake beach with a water slide and bouncy castle.

Brian & Brenda, plus Benson & Hedges (the dogs). Oxfordshire. July 2018
Another amazing holiday. Nothing is too much trouble for Annette & Jason, making sure that we have a brilliant holiday. Very hot, but better than cold & wet. The gite is so comfortable and the doggies enjoyed the balls in the doggie toy box. We love coming here to Lairoux and enjoy chilling on the patio area. Brian enjoyed his daily dip in the pool. The gite is the best we have been to in France - everything you need in the kitchen, BBQing is good too. Thank you Annette & Jason - we have had a lovely time and look forward to our next stay in 2020!

Joanna, Eamonn, Emma & Zoe. Wicklow, Ireland. May/June 2018
We had another brilliant holiday here at Maison Lairoux. We went to Les Conches beach where we enjoyed bodyboarding.
We also went to the Puy du Fou where we had an amazing time seeing lots of shows. I recommend to plan your day before you get there. It is very helpful.
And lastly we went to the Indian Forest Adventure Park. We did the water activities. It was lots of fun.
And finally, Annette & Jason don’t treat you like customers, they treat you like friends.

Sophie, Philippe & Thérèse. Laval, Mai 2018

Accueil chaleureux, nos hôtes sont très cordiaux et disponible.
Le site est remarquable, extrêmement soigné.
L’environnement, dans ce site naturel, convoque sérénité, repos et paix.
Excellent séjour, vécu comme un ressourcement dans une ‘very peaceful place’ !

Vanessa, Matthieu, Giulia, Esteban et Neo (le chien). Montigny le Bretonneux. April 2018.
Merci à Annette et Jason pour votre accueil chaleureuse, votre gentillesse et votre disponibilité. Nous avons beaucoup apprécié notre séjour dans la région et le gîte y est pour beaucoup!
La vue de L’Ecurie et de la piscine sur le marais est magnifique, on ne l’en laisserait pas. Le gîte est propre et très fonctionnel et nous avons bien profité de la diversité des activités à disposition sur le site: piscine (exceptionnel fin avril!), boulodrome, salle de jeux. Même pas eu le temps de tester la salle de sport.
De coup, il nous faudra revenir….avec grand plaisir! À bientôt.

Janet & Michael, Jersey. February 2018
Again a lovely winter break in the Vendée at L’curie. Great lunches, wine and shopping!
Fabulous hosts - always so helpful and hospitable. Great to reminisce about Jersey in the past and of course Mike likes to talk “Computers” with Jason.
Many thanks Annette & Jason for the great few days. See you soon. (Maybe Jason in Jersey)

Stuart, Julie & Katie, Hertfordshire. April 2018
Lovely welcoming hosts, very knowledgeable about area, offered great advice about days out, excellent gite - like being home-from-home.
Visited La Rochelle, Luçon, nice beach at La Tranche sur Mer.
Unfortunately didn’t have the best weather - games room great for wet days!!

Shelagh & John, Molly & Benji the dogs. September 2017
Annette & Jason have been so helpful, sadly we had to cut our holiday short as our old dog, Molly, hurt her leg. Annette made an appointment at the vets for us (who were very kind and gentle with Molly). We love the gite and will be back hopefully for the full holiday next time!! Thank you for your hospitality and help.
PS: The area is lovely and so much to do and see.

Lee, Lisa, Matthew & Daniel. Kent. Aug/Sept 2017.
A lovely gite with far reaching beautiful views of the countryside. The pool is a great bonus - large & heated. We have had a lovely week. Annette & Jason are friendly & helpful hosts. We will return.

Clare, Neil, Emily & Eva. Kent. August 2017.
Another wonderful relaxing holiday here, with kind and helpful hosts who we now see as friends – Jason and Annette, and always on hand with advice, ideas for days out, chats and of course a good laugh and a few drinks (!) in the evening.
As usual we loved being here in the peaceful, beautiful surroundings so much with the lovely pool that we had to force ourselves to venture out, but we did have great times in La Rochelle, The Water Park, La Tranche and Puy du Fou (eventually!!).
Thanks again for a wonderful holiday 😍 See you next year.

Naomi, Stuart, Eva & Alice. Gloucestershire. July/Aug 2017
After a days travel we were greeted by a warm welcome from Jason and Annette and this continued for the week, nothing is too much trouble. Maison Lairoux is the perfect place to unwind even with small children. Our favourite days were relaxing or playing with the girls in the pool, having dinner on the terrace, then a cool beer as the sunset.
Nearby Luçon is a lovely town - we particularly liked the Jardin Dumaine. Another highlight is the Ile de Re, we spent the day there combining lunch at Saint Martin and the afternoon on the beach.
We have had another fab week here at L’Ecurie. It really is a great family gite in a perfect location. Thank you - we look forward to returning.

Lucy, Jason, Grace & Harley, Aldermaston. July 2017
We have thoroughly enjoyed our 2 weeks this year. Annette & Jason are really superb hosts - nothing is too much trouble. The gite is so comfortable - a real home from home. We have returned for the 6th time - this time for 2 weeks. It’s been very peaceful as the house opposite (Le Vieux Café) was unoccupied. We have had a thoroughly good time. Watched fireworks from afar on the 14th July, then had a couple of storms - one we watched with our hosts. Annette & Jason laid on a lovely BBQ and the next night we went to Le Teq Bowling.
We have been boating at Apremont and also at the Embarcarderie de l’Abbaye at Maillezais. Kids have been paddle boarding at St Benoist sur Mer. Tried the Chocolate Museum at La Roche sur Yon - yummy.
We have enjoyed our 1st 2 weeks here so have booked 2 weeks again next year. Merci Beaucoup Annette & Jason. Just Bliss doing very little!

Ant, Sarah, Matteo & Filippo. Enfield. July 2017
We have had such an amazing time here. Your gite is lovely and the views and peace is wonderful. Both our boys have loved exploring, playing in the garden and the pool (especially the inflatables!). There is so much to see and do here – we would recommend the beaches at La Tranche and La Faute, plus the Château des Aventuriers was great fun. Il de Ré is also a ‘must see’. The aquarium in La Rochelle was brilliant on a rainy day. Thanks Jason & Annette for your welcome! We would love to come back.

Brian & Brenda, plus Jake & Benson the dogs, Oxfordshire. June 2017.

We have thoroughly enjoyed our 2 weeks this year. Annette & Jason are really superb hosts - nothing is too much trouble. The gite is so comfortable - a real home from home.
We had a very hot first week (38/39 degrees!) and the second week was normal weather (28 degrees!) for the first part of the week, then today - 30th June - only 19 degrees - such a contrast in temp. The pool was extremely warm and Jason & Annette keep it very clean.
The gardens are lovely, as are the views. A visit to the bird hide (not far by car) is a must - to see the birds - especially the storks where they nest so high up.
We are booked to come again next year! Thank you Annette & Jason for making us so welcome.

Bridget, Roland & Wendy, Sittingbourne. June 2017.
We have had a very relaxing week here. Our hosts, Jason & Annette, have been very welcoming and hospitable. We enjoyed our visits to the restaurants recommended by them. We visited the reserve (on the Marais Communal) and were lucky enough to see a coypu as well as the numerous birds. Thank you for the wine & chocolates which we much enjoyed!

Joanna, Eamonn, Emma & Zoe. Ireland. May/June 2017.
We had a great holiday here. The house is extremely well kitted out with everything we needed and more. Lovely pool area, garden & well-stocked games room. There is lots to do in the area. We spent 2 days at Puy du Fou & still didn’t see all of it. Would highly recommend ‘Les Orgues du Feu’ (Evening show at Puy du Fou). We also visited Le Chateau des Adventurers and the Indian Forest Park (2 days). We hope to return to Maison Lairoux.

John & Christine. Hertfordshire. May 2017
We have just enjoyed a glorious week here. What a lovely spot. The gite is just perfect with great facilities, beautifully appointed, heated swimming pool - what more could you want?
The gite enjoys a great position overlooking the Marais which is teeming with wildlife. We saw storks perched on their nest, swans & a couple of coypu swimming, which we will have to admit to thinking they were beavers! We heard the elusive hoopoes and golden orioles, but sadly did not see either.
We brought our bikes with us and this is lovely cycling country. The beaches at L’Aiguillon & La Faute sur Mer are great. How the week has flown & we hope to return before too long. Thanks Annette & Jason for a great stay.

Katy, Justin & Ethan. Warwickshire. April 2017
Beautiful accommodation, amazing play room for my child & his cousins.
Thank you so much for helping us with the car. We are so grateful for your help & support. We had a lovely break in your beautiful home.

Doreen, Chas, Julie, Chloe & Poppy the Dog, Lowestoft. April 2017
What a wonderful gite; everything needed for a great break. Excellent accommodation, everything from a wonderful, welcoming host couple (Jason & Annette).
The gardens were very welcoming for Poppy (our 4 legged friend).
We will certainly return. If we needed help with anything Annette & Jason were always there to help.
A home from Home. See you again soon and thank you.

Janet & Michael, Jersey. Feb 2017
Our 5th visit here! Just love our winter breaks here. This time visited L'Ardoise Gourmande in Luçon for lunch - went twice - excellent.
Weather was perfect - even sat outside to read my book (17 Degrees C).
Great hospitality as usual from Annette & Jason.
We will be back soon.

Anita & Bernie, and Oscar the dog, Le Grand Bourg, France. Jan 2017
We were made to feel very welcome by our charming hosts. It is a well-equipped Gite with a cosy fire (which was welcome in the freezing fog!). Great equipment in the Gite - everything one needs for a great holiday.
A must see is the wave cut platform around Sables d'Olonne - a great beach for dog walking.

Petra & Michael, and Cleo the dog, Zweibrücken, Germany. Feb 2017
Very nice gite - one of the best we know. We felt very welcome by our hosts Annette & Jason. We looked for a very calm holiday and found it here.
An absolute 'Must-See' is La Rochelle with its Aquarium, the Market Hall and the Old Port.
Thanks for a nice holiday.
