Bhudda in the garden at Maison Lairoux holiday homes
Gail, Chelle, Janine & Luca. Bolton. January 2015
Lovely place, brand new kitchen with all appliances. Weather cold, but the gite can be kept warm with the heaters and log fire. Very quiet - not many tourists and a lot of restaurants shut. (January!) Would certainly stay here again and will recommend to family and friends.
Janet & Michael. Jersey February 2015
Enjoyed a few days break at L’Ecurie. Great gite, very well appointed - we ate out so didn’t get a chance to try the new kitchen appliances. Gite is very warm with electric heaters & bonus of a log burning fire.
Would highly recommend `Au Fils des Saisons’ restaurant in Luçon for lunch. Another good restaurant at Coulon is ‘Le Central’ (a little longer drive - about 1hour away) bt Coulon is a lovely town with boats on the river (in season).
Would love to stay again - lovely area - would recommend to friends. Thanks for an enjoyable break.
Amélie, Sébastien, Ninon & Jasmin. Haute-Savoie, France. April 2015.
Venant visiter la famille, nous nous sommes retrouvés ici. C’est le paradis des enfants et ainsi des parents 😊
De tous les gites que nous avons fais, c’est le 1er où tout a été pensé pour que les hôtes puissent manquer de rien. Vous pouvez jouer au jeu “Je pense que tel objet n’existe pas ici…” et bon, vous perdrez certainement!!!
Un grand merci pour votre implication et votre gentillesse. Au plaisir de revenir un jour.

Capucine, Camille, Chris, Michel, Gaspard, Paul Rachel et Lucien. Lille, France. Avril/Mai 2015.
Nous avons passé une excellente semaine dans une magnifique maison parfaitement équipée pour les petits et les grands.
L’accueil est parfait, Annette et Jason sont extrêmement gentils et toujours prêts à répondre à nos attentes.
Le soleil fut au Vendée pour la plupart du temps et nous partons la joie au coeur.

Sarah, Geoff, Sophia, Ethan, & Zachary, Walton on Thames. May 2015
We have thoroughly enjoyed our stay, it has been restful and peaceful - even with our 3 young children! The cottage is so well equipped, our hosts welcoming, knowledgeable and approachable - Thank you.
The children were catered for more than 100%, the games room so well equipped, pool so lovely and gardens lots to explore. We had an amazing time, of course not to mention the beautiful sightseeing.
We hope to visit again soon.
Beverley, Steve and Jackson, Bristol. May 2015
Another lovely stay at Maison Lairoux.
The warmest, friendliest welcome from Jason and Annette. Just like our previous visit, the house has everything you need. The pool is amazing and everything/everywhere is so well kept and clean and tidy.
We had a fab day out at the Ile de Ré and La Rochelle - well worth a day out away from the pool. Our 14 year old was well catered for with table tennis, the Xbox and of course the pool and gym. Really relaxing stay, so we’ll be back for a 3rd time!
Thanks for all your help - you are terrific!
Christine, Douglas, Christopher, Lesley & Pollyanna. Kent. June 2015.
An extremely relaxing holiday in such a peaceful setting. Jason & Annette very welcoming and kind, Really enjoyed the pool, the garden, La Rochelle, The Yon Valley.
Restaurant Au Fils des Saisons was extremely good – really fine dining and not fiercely expensive.
We’ll be back!!

Dan, Kate & Elsie. Sandbach. June 2015
A lovely week at Maison Lairoux. Thank you to Annette & Jason for making us so welcome. Also, thank you to the cats for being so patient with our little Elsie. Loved Luçon and La Tranche. Hoping to return with eldest daughter and grand parents.
John & Sue, Don & Esther. Morpeth. June 2015
Beautiful location, lovely pool and garden and such a friendly welcome - thank you.
Thanks foreign such great hosts. You’ve created a great holiday experience at Maison Lairoux and there’s such nice things to do on the doorstep. The Parc Floral, the hide, the Marais - all fantastic and all within 10 minute’s drive. Annette’s liqueurs are just great - beware the peach!

Brenda & Brian, Jake & Benson (the dogs!). Oxfordshire. June 2015
It is our 3rd visit to this lovely gite. Annette & Jason are wonderful hosts. Nothing is too much trouble. We have already booked another couple of holidays here this year and next. Weather has been wonderful.
The Equinox restaurant is well worth a visit. The Vendee region of France is such a super place to visit - with the sandy and clean beaches, excellent restaurants, a visit to the nearby hide is well worth a visit to see the storks and other birds.
Thank you once again Annette & Jason for making us so welcome.
Jason, Lucy, Harley & Grace. Aldermaston. July 2015.
Another fab time here - big house this time and my Mum stayed with us. Weird weather - warm, overcast & windy! Made to feel very welcome even when my Mum came and Jason & Annette had a BBQ to celebrate Annette’s 50th!!
Mum & Jason talked about Jersey - so I could possibly be related to Jason 😚
We have potentially booked for next year - hopefully to relax more!
Gary, Eleanor, Alex & Heather. Essex. July 2015.
We have really enjoyed our holiday. The accommodation is excellent and all the facilities kept us busy! The pool is beautiful - it was great to watch our youngest learn to swim this holiday!
Thank you Annette & Jason for all your hospitality - we enjoyed the chats and the wine & nibbles. You made us feel very welcome and enjoyed the birthday party too. Hope to be back in the future.
Many thanks - see you again!

Alex - I enjoyed the table tennis and pool. Thank you.
Heather - I liked the beaches & pool and the cats. Daddy loved the BBQ. Thank you Annette & Jason xxx.
The Robot at La Rochelle Harbour
Ann, James, Jo, Dan & Rachel. Redhill. July/August 2015.
4th time here and once again a fantastic time. Managed Puy du Fou this year & it was great; definitely recommended.
Two visits to La Rochelle - le Vieux Port is a wonderful place to wander around & people watch!
Jason & Annette great hosts, as always - enjoyed all that the gite has to offer - pool, games room, gym etc.. Relaxation, exercise, great company - perfect holiday!
Phil, Fiona, Eleanor, Daniel & Adam. Worcester. August 2015.
What a wonderful way to introduce our youngest to France! The beach at Les Conches was a firm favourite - wonderful surf and not too crowded if you park off the small coastal road.
When the weather broke we found the great soft-play centre ‘Zebra City’ in La Roche sur Yon - busy but great for 3 - 12 year olds.
Thanks Annette & Jason for your warm hospitality - hope to see you again soon.
Amy (Aged 13) - with family (Clare, Steve & Mark) & Griff the Dog. Buckinghamshire. August 2015.
It’s really lovely here in the Vendée! I have really enjoyed my stay - great pool, great beach and great hosts. I also really love the cats (but sorry about Griff and the cat food!)
The weather has been lovely except one rainy day, and I have always had something fun to do.

What an amazing gite - such a beautiful setting and such welcoming hosts in Jason & Annette. We loved relaxing by the pool & love Les Conches for body surfing. We had a really fun day at the Indian Forest - kept the boys happy all day.
We would love to come back soon.
Callum: Great fun in the pool and I also enjoyed Les Conches. Weather was brill. Thanks J & A.
Robbie: Our week here was brill thanks to all your fabulous facilities - the swimming pool was so soft and fun to play in and the games room was amazing. We loved the table tennis table and the snooker table. Thank you for letting us stay.
Jackie, Paul, Imi & Maya. Windsor. August 2015.
Have had a really lovely, relaxing week. Gite is gorgeous.
Kids have loved the pool & the games room, adults loved the local wines and cheeses!! Annette & Jason are very welcoming hosts, we hope to return & will tell all of our friends about Maison Lairoux.

Thank you again – we’ve had a fantastic time.
It’s been a really good holiday for all of us in our own ways. For me it was the pool, so thanks again for another great holiday! Very relaxing!

Another fantastic 2 weeks here in Lairoux. We love it here. Annette & Jason are superb hosts as nothing is too much trouble. It is our 4th visit and we will be returning next year!!.
The gites have everything you need to make your stay comfortable.
The beautiful beaches are not too far away and there are some excellent restaurants.
Everything here is beautifully maintained and is a credit to Jason & Annette.
Thank you for making our stay so brilliant. See you next year.

Thanks! You’ve got a great property, everything we could possibly need!! Thanks for your lovely welcome and your willingness to have us host Fab’s 40th!! It was great.
Janet & Michael, Jersey, Channel Islands. October 2015
Our 2nd visit to L’Ecuire for a short stay. It is a lovely, equipped gite with very welcoming & helpful hosts. We just wanted a relaxing break enjoying some great lunches with a little shopping! Jason recommended a nearby restaurant (about 30mins away) The St Georges at St Juire Champgillon. Fabulous lunch menu 12.50 Euros – 3 courses + wine + coffee! Amazing and great food. Also would recommend the Auberge de la Court d’Aron at St Cyr en Talmondais for a great lunch. Thanks for your hospitality – we will be back!
