Sue, Stewart, Mimi & Fifi (the dog) Hagenheim, Alsace. April 2013
Jason & Annette are excellent hosts. Can’t do enough for their guests. Gite is super & UK TV. We’ll be back next year.

Roy, Jan & Oscar (Burmese Mountain Dog) Cambremer, Normandy - May 2013
Had a super week despite the mixed weather! Gite is really comfy and superbly equipped and thanks so much Jason & Annette for being terrific hosts. I am sure that we will be back!
La Vallée de l'Yon is a wonderful place for walks and picnics, especially with a large hairy dog like ours and would definitely recommend a visit to the Mervant-Vouvant forest.
Clock Tower and Harbour at La Rochelle

Nicky, Paul, Harrison, Annabelle & Louise, Guernsey - May 2013

If you're wondering whether this is the place for you - debate no longer - just book! Lairoux is beautiful, relaxing and the gite fully equipped. We had a superb view from our room of a nest of storks (4? chicks) and enjoyed the facilities here - great for families - with extensive games, dressing up, ping-pong and dvdd for rainy days.

We had an action packed stay: La Faute sur Mer; La Rochelle - a visit to the aquarium is a must; Le Parc des Aventuriers - a pirate trail set in stunning grounds; a river/valley walk in the village of Piquet (baby rucksack is needed, as not suitable for buggy). We fell in love with this place. Vouvant Medieval Fort and Mervant Forest. To top it my fellow Channel Islanders, Jason & Annette, have been brilliant hosts and we thoroughly enjoyed shared glasses/bottles of wine and chats into the evening. 😊

John, Penny, Gracie & Mary. Battle – May 2013
A wonderful weeks hospitality although the weather slightly unfortunate. Very attractive and interesting countryside, wonderful sandy beaches at La Tranche and Sables d’Olonne.
A feast of a set meal at Hotel du Port in L’Aiguillon sur Mer (12 Euros). Wonderful local churches. Enjoy

Mary, Bexhill – May 2013
Annette & Jason, you have a lovely spot here and after years of stress – the peace and quiet is just what I needed. It’s worked wonders. Many thanks for the warm welcome and hospitality. Pity about the weather, but still enjoyed seeing the lovely countryside of the Vendee. The wine is not bad either!

Cari & Kaitlyn, Jersey – May 2013
Thank you for a fantastic week, you have more than catered for our every need. Kaitlyn loved the karaoke, though I’m sure your ears will be glad of the break!! We have had a brill time and will be back again next year.

Paul, Kerry, girls & Logan, Jersey – May 2013
Thank you very much for letting us stay in one of your gites. We have had a very relaxing, enjoyable week, shame about the weather but that can’t be helped. The gite is very comfortable and it felt like home from home. Sad to leave, but we will be back next year without a doubt.

Ann, Scott, Euan & Eilidh. Yvelines, France - June 2013

A beautiful and comfortable house with everything we could possibly have needed. The situateion is wonderful, very peaceful, a great place for a relaxing week or two with active youngsters. The nearby beaches are fantastic, Les Conches being a favourite of ours, and La Rochelle was an interesting day trip for all the family.
We will recommend this gite to friends and family.

Shelley & Rose, with Tarka the labrador. Haute-Savoie & Brittany - June 2013

A delightful residence - spacious, very well equipped and comfortable. Thank you Jason & Annette for your generous hospitality - we had a very peaceful & relaxing holiday. I hope to see you both 'chez moi' in the Alps this autumn. - Shelley
I enjoyed the peace and tranquilty of your beautiful and well maintained garden. Also slept so well in your very comfortable beds. Thank you for letting us share your little heaven. - Rose

Tracey, Caroline, Natasha, Jamie & Emily. Bath – June 2013
The gites and amenities are superb. The games room has been a big hit as the weather has not been kind to us. Tracey really enjoyed looking at your collection. Thank you and good luck for the future.

PJ, Claire, Norabrid & Mark. Dublin - June/July 2013

Beautiful place and people with more than enough to occupy 2 teenagers & 2 adults! will be back and will recommend to family & friends. The Wed & Sat market in Luçon is only for food. On Sunday night there was only 1 restaurant open in Luçon - Eldorado, which was just ok, but when you had no other choice (and few provisions bought in) we were grateful for it!
Steve, Julie, Cléa, Théo, Matthis & Lily. Cardiff - June/July 2013
We've thoroughly enjoyed our stay here! The four children have loved playing in the play-room & using the swimming pool as well as all this gîte has to offer. The weather has been great, meaning we've spent the majority of our time here using the facilities, eating outdoors and a few trips to the beach and walks in the Marais. We'll hopefully be back again in future years! Thank you both Jason & Annette, you've been very welcoming and couldn't do enough for us during our stay.

Cléa (5 years old) - Thank you for letting us in this house and use the swimming pool. I love it.
Aileen, George, Duncan & Malcolm. Perth - July 2013
Our third stay at this wonderful house. Weather was excellent and the boys, as usual, loved the pool and games room. Had a great week, wish we could stay longer. Thanks to Jason & Annette for looking after us so well and for sharing some wine with us!! Aurevoir.
Underwater Swimming at Maison Lairoux
Clare, Colin, Oliver & Sam – Abingdon. July 2013
A wonderfully relaxing and enjoyable stay. Everything we needed was here. Jason & Annette were perfect hosts – tourist info, BBQ, and IT support!! We would recommend Les Conches beach and Le Grand Defi high ropes. The Velo Rail is also a fun day out.
Oliver (9) – I really liked the games room and pool. Thanks for letting me swim at night.
Sam (4) – enjoyed playing with all the cats and chatting to Annette in her kitchen!
We will be back!!
Carolyn, Peter & Finn. London - August 2013
We all had a great time. Annette & Jason were very good hosts, with lots of excellent advice. A very lovely place to stay.
Ann, James, Joe, Dan & Rachel. Redhill - August 2013
Our second stay here; this time for two weeks, and once again, we have had a wonderful time. The house and on-site facilities are fabulous and as we have been fortunate with the weather, we have spent a lot of time enjoying the pool, the games room, the garden and the gym.
The beach at Les Conches was excellent again; we all loved body boarding there. Great local markets. Had a lovely meal at L'Atelier in Luçon and enjoyed the high ropes at Le Grand Defi. Jason & Annette are wonderful hosts and we greatly enjoyed their hospitality and company.
Lotus lake at the Tropical Gardens
Audrey, Gary & Isobel. Ely - August 2013
We had a really lovely time - thank you Annette & Jason! La Terrière was our favourite beach - it has good waves for bodyboard! Fleurs du Thym restaurant in Les Sables d'Olonne is a very good restaurant. The weather has been fantastic for most of the time here. We also liked the Equinox restaurant at La Tranche.

Steve, Sharon, Alexandra, Paul, Ryan & Emma. West Midlands - August 2013
Our first time in the west of France. Fantastic holiday, wonderful hosts and the cats went down a treat!
Christine & Ian. Devon - September 2013
What a beautiful, peaceful setting! Extremely well equipped and the pool has been well used. Thanks for a great venue.

Eloise (aged 11) Devon - September 2013
This holiday was really amazing. The pool was brilliant and I really liked watching films at night with my sister Jessica (15) as well! Today was the best day though. We went to a really good climbing place called Indian Forest! Great for any age of kids; bouncy castles for kids aged around 3/4ish. Treetop climbing for age 5 and over and lots of other fun stuff! Check it out for kids if you have any…..really cool!!
Heather & Edward. Fareham - September 2013
Thank you Annette and Jason for another completely relaxing holiday. It's no surprise people come back time and again. Everything provided, nothing too much trouble. We very much enjoyed your hospitality.

Brenda & Brian, and Jake the Labrador. Sidmouth - September 2013
We have had a brilliant stay in the very comfortable gite. Pool and gym excellent - in fact we have had such a good time we are coming back next year for 2 weeks. We had a very warm welcome from our hosts Annette & Jason. The gite is very well situated and the coast is not too far at all. We had an excellent meal at Hotel de Port in L'Aiguillon sur Mer on the recommendation of Annette & Jason. Very reasonably priced and the quality of the food was really good. It gets very busy - even when the tourists have gone. It is best to get there at 12 noon! Thank you for making us so welcome and see you next year.
