Storks nesting at Lairoux
Val & Hugh, Finistère. February 2014
We have had a very enjoyable week here with lots of sunshine as well as wind and rain! We were made very welcome by Annette & Jason and really appreciated the comforts of the gite and the books and DVDs in the games room.
There are so many walks to do, and places of interest to visit. We particularly enjoyed walking by the coast at St Vincent and in the countryside near Mareuil. The bird watching has been excellent.
It would be good to come again one day.
De Saussime, Paris. May 2014
En un mot - parfait! Confort, gentillesse, discretion et attention.
Le jardin est très agréable, la salle de jeux si plein des trésors infinis pour les enfants et la piscines si belle! Merci beaucoup & bravo pour ce si bel accueil.
Chateua des aventuriers, Avrille, Vendee
Steve, Sue & Alex, Winchester. May 2014
What can we say? A fantastic place to stay with the most equipped accommodation we have ever stayed in (and we often self cater). The easy WiFi & family room were key to this choice but still exceeded our expectations. Annette & Jason top hosts.
Puy de Fou a spectacle but v. busy. However a real gem is the Chateau des Aventuriers - a must for adults and children - very near by at Avrillé, what a find, brilliant challenges and catering for non French visitors (unlike Puy de Fou!!) - a tragedy if you did not go! The castle ruin at Talmont St Hilaire was brilliant too, so do go there (en route to Les Sables...) La Rochelle / lie de Ré also not to be missed. Have fun! We certainly did!
Brenda & Brian, (with Jake & Benson) Sidmouth. June 2014
Two lovely weeks. Our 2nd stay here. Gite is very well equipped. Home from home. A very relaxing holiday. Jason & Annette superb hosts. Very sad to leave. Weather wonderful - blue skies, our 2nd week temperatures reached 30 degrees. We are returning in 2015.
A good range of beaches only 20 minutes away. Lovely white sand. Vendee is the region to stay. Nice restaurants & bars in La Tranche sur Mer.
Thank you Jason & Annette for making our holiday so enjoyable, can't wait for our return visit in 2015.
Windmills at the beach
Simon, Caroline, Nelly & William. Stroud. June 2014

Fantastic holiday ! Pool much loved by all to cool down in late afternoon. Nelly is now a confident pool user and william loved climbing in and out.
Lots of days out. Recommend La Rochelle & aquarium; Fontenay-le-Comte – very pretty & 2 play areas!; Chateau des Aventuriers – with pirates & dinosaurs & pretty grounds & house (food v. expensive though) Food market in Luçon v.good. So much choice.
Play room great fun. CD/DVD’s useful. Hosts – Jason & Annette were fantastic. Babysitting really helpful and allowed us meals out – such a treat!
This gite & setting is fabulous. Really relaxing & well located to visit the beach, towns or nature reserve.

Nelly (3) Stroud. June 2014
I love swimming & the pool & the beach. I love swimming in the pool.
Beaches – La Tranche & Les Conches are fun. I made sand castles & canals & mud pies.
Please can we come here again & go swimming again please.
Karin, Hans, Oscar, Lennart, Linus & Hans-Ake. Stockholm, Sweden. June/July 2014
Thanks for 2 wonderful weeks at your 'Maison'. Also thanks for the recommendations for visiting places. Hopefully we come back again.
PS: Love the cats u got!
Neil, Helen & Daniel. Swindon. July 2014

Thanks to Annette & Jason for a lovely and well-equipped gite, we’ve especially enjoyed the pool and table tennis.
Memorable day trips included La Rochelle and its towers, the beach at Les Conches and best of all the Puy du Fou – the bird show is amazing and really shouldn’t be missed. (We left here at 9am and just made the bird show – so leave a little earlier!)
The beach at La Tranche sur Mer, Vendee
David, Dawn & Harrison. Bucks. July 2014

Thank you very much for such a lovely stay. Absolutely agree with all of the comments about how well equipped the gite is. Everything you require and Annette & Jason are very hospitable.
Lovely beaches at Les Conches and do visit Chateau des Aventuriers - but take the guided tour as you see much more.
Hope to come again!
Aileen, George, Duncan, Malcolm & Katie. Perth. July 2014
Another brilliant week!
Ursula, Jon, Niamh, Connor & Abigail. Kent. July 2014
Great time. Lovely relaxing by the pool. Fantastic hosts.
Le Grand Defi was great for kids.
Underwater fun in the pool
Ann, James, Joe, Dan & Rachel. Redhill. July 2014.

Our third holiday here once again we have had a fabulous time. Annette & Jason have been wonderful hosts and the children have had a fantastic time on the beach, in the pool, in the games room and having fun with the family next door. We will be back for the 4th year!!
Clare, Steve, Amy & Mark. Buckinghamshire. July/August 2014
It is possible to find a really well equipped villa, or a great pool, or a fab location, but rarely all together! What fantastic accommodation and generous hosts (birthday cakes, drinks & nibbles, underwater cameras... the list goes on!) Thanks Annette & Jason for making us all welcome - including the roving hound.
Tips for dog walkers: path behind the church is nice, as is the Marais (but watch the grass seeds). Beach at Les Conches ok for dogs, except between the yellow & black stripe signs (supposed to be on a lead - but no one minded off). Also, La Faute good anywhere. La Tranche disaster for dogs - about 2m² available (but no loss as very busy!) Also, make sure you try the Yon Valley!
Jeff, Emma, Linus & Tara. Surrey. August 2014
We enjoyed our time here, thank you for being so helpful. We loved the swimming pool and games room.
Enjoyed the Ile de Ré and La Rochelle.

Frankie turned 8 & thank you for his lovely cake Annette!

Thanks for all your friendly hosting Annette & Jason.
Michael, Amanda, Aerin, & Nathanael. Kent. August 2014

Kayaks on the canals at Sables d
Lucy, Jason, Grace & Harley. Aldermaston. August 2014
We had another enjoyable week, made to feel welcome as usual by our fantastic hosts: Jason & Annette. We had more of a relaxing holiday by the pool and in the gym. I would recommend La Tranche sur Mer for evening meals and La Rochelle. Had a great last night swim!
Hannah, Jasper, Mya, Rachel, Andy & Luca. Brighton. August 2014
Brilliant house and setting.
Perfect location and hosts.
Every one of Jason & Annette's recommendations were spot on!
Puy du Fou was exceptional!!
View of the Ferris Wheel at La Rochelle
Nikki, Dave, Luke & Jess. Cannock. August 2014.
We enjoyed ourselves so much in 2012 we just had to come back! Again, our stay here has been faultless. Thank you once again to Annette & Jason for their superb hosting skills and not forgetting their assistance with our minor car trauma!
Thank you so much - I have a sneaky feeling we'll be back again!

Luke (14) - Our second visit to Maison Lairoux and nothing to fault the holiday once again. There were plenty of things to keep us entertained especially the table tennis, pool and snooker. We visited a few markets and various different places that we hadn't visited the first time. Even though it's our second time, I would love to come again. Thank you very much Jason and Annette for another amazing week. 😀

Jess (12) - This was our second time visiting Maison Lairoux and yet again I had an amazing week! The facilities here kept us entertained for a long time. I particularly liked the games room and the pool. I liked the games room because I could thrash my Dad at table tennis. We finally visited La Rochelle as well, which was a really nice place! Although been here 2 times now, I'd love to come again! Thank you Jason and Annette for another great week!
Rob, Kim & Arthur. Exeter September 2014
Absolutely fantastic place to stay, so much to do and keep us entertained. The pool alone is great, but the games room & gym are major bonuses. We will definitely be recommending this place to friends and family. Annette & Jason have been incredibly helpful, lending us one ingredients when we forgot we need to go shopping before 12.00 on a Sunday.
Jeff & Fiona. Jersey. October 2014
Many thanks to Jason & Annette for making our holiday so relaxing and interesting. Weather has been fabulous so plenty of walking & cycling were enjoyed. Fantastic area with much more to explore. Thank you.
Le Jardin Dumain in Lucon
Philip, Sharman, Stephen & Lynda. Neath. November 2014
We have had a relaxing weekend in your beautiful house. The location is stunning and you have been great hosts. The weather we had for the first few days was glorious - a bonus for the end of Oct/beginning of Nov! We spent a lovely day at La Rochelle and had a lovely lunch around the harbour.
The house is well-equipped and you have thought of everything - the games room & fitness room are a bonus and our grand daughter would love the dressing up clothes!!
Merci beaucoup et à bientôt!
