The Canals of the Marais Poitevin

We had a fab break away, thank you both! Even though the weather was not great all the time there was the fantastic games room to keep us all busy. We would like to come back in the summer so we can all enjoy the beautiful pool! Thank you again xxx

Richard, Jackie, Kieran & Liam – Guernsey
Brilliant holiday had by all. Jason and Annette have made a brilliant job of making sure everybody enjoys their time here. Indian forest is a must to go to. Puy du Fou. Fantastic day out but take your own picnic with you!! The pool and Xbox were a great hit with the boys. Everything has been thought out very good. All the best Jackie, Richard, Kieran and Liam

Surfing at Les Conches

We have had a fantastic week here! Thank you both for making our stay so relaxing and enjoyable and we all appreciate the efforts you went to in making us feel so comfortable and at home. The pool and gardens are lovely and the playroom is a great bonus. We had great fun on the deserted beach at La Faute sur Mer, and La Tranche was good on a rainy day for collecting shells and crabs! We enjoyed our trip to Sables D’Olonne and hope to return next year as there is a lot more exploring to be done! Thanks too for the good restaurant recommendation & babysitting. Wish we were staying for 2 weeks!

Vicki, James, Lachlan & Isla – Jersey
Annette and Jason really looked after us and were great with the children. The food cooked by Annette and Jason was great and took the pressure off on the first couple of nights. Gite is very well equipped. The swimming pool was a real favourite with the kids. The restaurant recommendation and babysitting were just the job to let mum and dad get a night out! The aquarium at La Rochelle was great fun for both the young ones and older ones. A fun holiday-Definitely would like to come back!

Alex & Dave – Battersea, London
Arrived and the gite really exceeded our expectations. Straight into the gorgeous pool.... Were fed fantastic home cooked pickles and chutneys on the first night as we'd planned so badly and arrived on a Sunday when everything was closed! Thanks so much to J&A for that-we were really grateful. Just had a lovely,relaxing week-Alex xxx
Well equipped, comfortable and quiet house, great pool and games room. Very friendly and helpful hosts-w'ell definitely be back! Would recommend île de Ré (especially St Martin), Indian Village (especially the Maxi-Tyrolliere, tiring but fun) and any of the local beaches. Dave xx

The Medieval Knights at the Puy du Fou

3rd Visit in a row to ML!
We continue to be impressed with the little improvements to this awesome gite - a true "home base" from which a family with young children can explore the fabulous beaches and unique sites around the countryside. We love the pool, the Xbox, fresh croissants with bowls of hot chocolate,awesome BBQ dinners,fresh country air and solitude. Me and the children now think of our hosts Annette and Jason as family in this part of France, and our return here to familiar faces and places feels like coming home. True luxury at the gites, so bring a sense of adventure to explore this beautiful part of France - you will have memories to treasure for a lifetime! Perhaps that is why we have returned for this our 3rd visit, and we all shed a tear when leaving, such an incredible place, and count the weeks 'til our return

Will, Helen, Oliver, Max & Emily – Oxford
We have had yet another amazing trip to France this year. Emily had very good time making raspberry jam with Annette and, Emily did the swimming pool with Jason. Max had an awesome time at the Indian Forest AGAIN and also had fun with the swimming pool and games room. Oliver loves it here and thinks Jason is the best host ever. We love it, we had a great time thank you. (As written by the children) – They as usual have the last word! Thank you Jason and Annette for a wonderful holiday. I think the children want to adopt you!

Peter, Sarah, Emily,Charlie & Oscar – Ringwood Hants
We’ve had a lovely week although not been very adventurous! Loved the beach at Les Conches and strolling around Tranche-sur-Mer. Aquarium at La Rochelle good for a rainy day, if you can prise the kids from the brilliant games room! Plan to do Puy du Fou next Year! Thank You.

John, Chloe, Henry & Annabelle Lloyd, Peter & Shirley – Colchester Essex
We have had a very enjoyable holiday here. The weather has been great. Accommodation and facilities for the children have been excellent. We love the area and have enjoyed days out at the Indian Forest, Coulon, Chateau des Aventuriers and the beaches at La Tranche. Jason and Annette have been fantastic hosts and we hope to return here again in the future. It’s been really great P and S. I’ve made some really good friends. Henry.

Paul, Cathy, Bethany & Robbie – Cardiff
Fabulous Gite. Fabulous hosts. Fabulous holiday experience. Looking forward to next year already.

Steve, Tara, Tom & Sophie – Surrey
Buster at Maison Lairoux

Our stays with you just keep getting better and better. The gites are still as comfy. clean and well presented as when we first stayed. We fell like they are our own holiday home!! As ever your hospitality is second to none. Sophie said the highlight of her holiday was the party and the food you laid on for her birthday. We will definitely be back.

Lynn, Neil, Megan & Lara – Ascot Berkshire
A big thank you to Jason and Annette for a wonderful holiday. The gite is lovely and we have all really enjoyed the pool and games room. Lara will be talking about the kittens for months to come! Le Puy du Fou was brilliant! Your hospitality has been much appreciated and we look forward to visiting again.

Stuart, Jo, James, Robert, Scott & Ellie – Hayling Island
Well, without any dramas to test poor Annette and Jason, we have had a most fantastic week. Children entertained by others and cats, so parents able to kick back and relax. NO Skim-boarding this year Wonder Why!! There is no other gite that offers such excellent facilities with such great hosts. A real home from home. Thanks again Annette and Jason XX

Fiona, Tony, Henry, Abby & Hugo – Windsor
Shaded Canal at the Marais Poitevin

We have had a fab week here in the gite. Annette and Jason have been fantastic hosts pointing us in the right direction for all the things to do locally. Can really recommend the beaches at La Faute sur Mer and Bourgenay, and the aquarium at La Rochelle is great. We also visited the Ile de Re for pizza and ice-cream which is worth seeing. Of course the kids really just wanted to hang out by the pool and play with the kittens!! Gite just perfect - everything here for a really relaxed stay. Thank you.

Leslie, Carol & Darren – Jersey
What more can we say 'Simply Wonderful' All the very best for the future.

The Partridge Family – Middlesex
Wonderful place and very good hosts. Thank You Jason and Annette for your great recommendations of where to go. We visited Puy du Fou for our 6 year old and had a fabulous time. Jason's recommendation of the 'Oiseaux Phantome' show was good. Went to La Rochelle to see towers and have a slap up lunch (we also saw the outside of the submarine pens there - 'Das Boot' here we come...) Visited Maillezais to see ruined abbey and hired a punt (note our punter said how the base was very muddy so progress was slow) We also went to Saint Vincent beach - not crowded with areas of shade so very good - and would recommend Angles near there for a drink and some v.typical french village life. Church at Angles v.interesting with Plantagenet architecture v.rare. (Kittens an added bonus for our 6 year old too!).

Rupert, Tory, Jonty & Hattie – North Yorkshire
Fun at the Indian Adventure Park

We had a fantastic week. Jason and Annette are brilliant hosts, beautiful home cooked meals on the first two nights and loads of tips and advice as to where to go really appreciated. Gite, pool, gardens all lovely. Games Room and Kittens!! a hit with the children. This is a wonderful place for everyone to be able to relax-spacious but secure! Really recommend Puy du Fou, Les Conches beach and cycling at Coulon. We will be back to explore some more! Thank you for everything.

Nicola, Andrew, William & Samuel – Hertfordshire
There are multiple glowing comments from prior guests at Maison Lairoux and now having experienced for ourselves we wholeheartedly agree. Jason and Annette are fantastic hosts and we have been made to feel like long lost friends with superb hospitality. I will not have enough space to say how good it has been, but lets start with saying our twin boys have loved it. The gite, gardens, pool, local area, beaches, markets, La Rochelle, wine have all been superb but final thanks to Jason and Annette, you are superb hosts and thank you so much.

Rachel, Mark, Eloise & Libby – Derbyshire
Lovely welcome after a long journey - much appreciated. Eloise & Libby want to say "This is a wonderful place". We have had a lovely week just relaxing on the beaches. We would recommend 'Velo-rail' - it was great fun and a big hit with the children. We swam in the sea and Eloise went in the pool here in October so have had a great week and been lucky with the weather. Jason and Annette have been superb hosts, have let us relax and all the best for the future. We would all love to come back sometime.
