The Harbour at Les Sables d Olonne
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.
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.
Poppy staying at L Ecurie in April
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.
Biscotte and the Girls in Le Vieux Cafe
Gaspard, Octave, Rose, Elisa, Anne, Camille, Fabrice & Cyrille + Biscotte le chien, France. Avril 2017.
Merci beaucoup pour de séjour très agréable dans une belle maison très bien équipée – chacun d’entre nous y a trouvé ses activités.
Merci et bravo à Annette et Jason qui entretiennent maison et jardin – Très Accueillant !
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.
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.
Underwater Fun in the pool at Maison Lairoux
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.
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!
Dog Friendly Holiday Homes at Maison Lairoux
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.
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.
Lucy, Jason, Grace & Harley, Aldermaston. July 2017
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!
