Wine tasting at Mourat Vineyard Mareuil
Janet & Michael, Jersey. February 2018
Again a lovely winter break in the Vendée at L’curie. Great lunches, wine and shopping!
Fabulous hosts - always so helpful and hospitable. Great to reminisce about Jersey in the past and of course Mike likes to talk “Computers” with Jason.
Many thanks Annette & Jason for the great few days. See you soon. (Maybe Jason in Jersey)


Stuart, Julie & Katie, Hertfordshire. April 2018
Lovely welcoming hosts, very knowledgeable about area, offered great advice about days out, excellent gite - like being home-from-home.
Visited La Rochelle, Luçon, nice beach at La Tranche sur Mer.
Unfortunately didn’t have the best weather - games room great for wet days!!
Vacances avec chiens en Vendee
Vanessa, Matthieu, Giulia, Esteban et Neo (le chien). Montigny le Bretonneux. April 2018.
Merci à Annette et Jason pour votre accueil chaleureuse, votre gentillesse et votre disponibilité. Nous avons beaucoup apprécié notre séjour dans la région et le gîte y est pour beaucoup!
La vue de L’Ecurie et de la piscine sur le marais est magnifique, on ne l’en laisserait pas. Le gîte est propre et très fonctionnel et nous avons bien profité de la diversité des activités à disposition sur le site: piscine (exceptionnel fin avril!), boulodrome, salle de jeux. Même pas eu le temps de tester la salle de sport.
De coup, il nous faudra revenir….avec grand plaisir!
À bientôt.

Camille et famille, plus Telemak le chien, Normandie. Avril 2018.
Très bonne location, la maison est spacieuse, propre, avec des salles de bain toutes neuves, une cuisine bien équipée. Equipements assez incroyables avec une piscine chauffée, une salle de jeu très fournie, jeux de plage, console, télé et lecteur dvd, collection impressionnante de dvd, de livres... et sans oublier la salle de sport en libre accès avec tapis de course, vélos en tout genre.... joli jardin avec une belle vue, on nous a même proposé de cueillir des poireaux du potager pour le dîner ! Nous avons été très chaleureusement accueillis par Annette et Jason très souriants et toujours prêts à répondre à nos questions, et des délicieuses spécialités nous attendaient dans la cuisine. Bref nous sommes vraiment ravis de notre séjour. (Revue sur AirBnB).

Accueil chaleureux, nos hôtes sont très cordiaux et disponible.
Le site est remarquable, extrêmement soigné.
L’environnement, dans ce site naturel, convoque sérénité, repos et paix.
Excellent séjour, vécu comme un ressourcement dans une ‘very peaceful place’ !

Lotus Lake at Parc Floral de Court d Aron
Séraphin, Cindy, Damien, Juline, Samy et Mohamed. Le Mans, Mai 2018.
Excellent séjour à Maison Lairoux! La maison est vraiement très bien équipée et nous avons passé un excellent week-end! Merci pour votre amabilité et votre disponibilté! A bientôt!
Et sur AirBnB: Cette location est très agréable avec une grande piscine, un grand jardin et des propriétaire très accueillant. De plus, la cuisine est grande et bien équipée. Les salles de sport et de jeux sont très bien fournies aussi (table de ping-pong, billard, console, jeu de société...). Cette maison est située à 20 min de la tranche-sur-mer se qui reste agréable, et il y a tous les équipements (parasols, bouées, jeux de plage...) possible à disposition pour passer de bon moment entre amis ou en famille sur la plage. Je recommande cette location pour les vacances.
Knights of the Round Table Puy du Fou
Vicky, Alan, Tom, Emily, Steve, Dagmar & Samantha. Eastbourne. May/June2018.
Thank you very much for a geat welcome andwonderful stay in Lairoux. We have enjoyed delicious food eating at the Phare Ouest in Ste Gemme and the Ardoise Gourmand in Luçon. Fantastic day at Puy du Fou as always - each time getting bigger and better. Body boarding at our favourite beach - Les Conches. We have been trying to think of something Annette & Jason have missed to make our stay more comfortable, but we have failed!!! Thank you once again. Hope to be back again!!

Joanna, Eamonn, Emma & Zoe. Wicklow, Ireland. May/June 2018
We had another brilliant holiday here at Maison Lairoux. We went to Les Conches beach where we enjoyed bodyboarding.
We also went to the Puy du Fou where we had an amazing time seeing lots of shows. I recommend to plan your day before you get there. It is very helpful.
And lastly we went to the Indian Forest Adventure Park. We did the water activities. It was lots of fun.
And finally, Annette & Jason don’t treat you like customers, they treat you like friends.
Graham & Kath, Steve & Cath. Shrops & Lancs. June 2018
Week of very hot weather, but windy with it! Great view from the terrace, but not enough shade from the hot sun all day. Lovely welcome from Jason and Annette on the Saturday and a great ‘Soirée’ on the Tuesday evening to get to know the other gite guests.
Alternated days out with rest days. Aiguillon-sur-Mer to see the sea birds Les Sables d’Olonne (Jet set!). Vouvant and Mervent forest (Recommend the Chill Out Restaurant). The gardens at St Cyr en Talmondais worth a visit, lotus flowers just coming out.
Nice pool, but a bit of a wind chill factor on getting out! Flies spoilt the week somewhat – otherwise an enjoyable stay. Jason - Thanks for the bike rides with Steve.

(Due to heatwave with temperatures over 30 degrees – extra umbrella supplied for shade)
Diarmid, Katie, Lachlan, Diarmid, Martin & Margaret. Kinghorn & Perth. July 2018
Very pleasant holiday and a wrench to leave. House and grounds so nice we didn’t have to go far to be entertained. Would recommend a walk in the gardens at Luçon, the old town at La Rochelle and for a taster of the waterways – The Plaisir d’Eau at Curzon.
Auberge de la Court d’Aron was good for food and ambience. Thanks to Jason and Annette for all their hospitality!
Doggie Holidays in the Vendee
Brian & Brenda, plus Benson & Hedges (the dogs). Oxfordshire. July 2018
Another amazing holiday. Nothing is too much trouble for Annette & Jason, making sure that we have a brilliant holiday. Very hot, but better than cold & wet. The gite is so comfortable and the doggies enjoyed the balls in the doggie toy box. We love coming here to Lairoux and enjoy chilling on the patio area. Brian enjoyed his daily dip in the pool. The gite is the best we have been to in France - everything you need in the kitchen, BBQing is good too. Thank you Annette & Jason - we have had a lovely time and look forward to our next stay in 2020!
Sarah, David, Ben & Sophie. London, July 2018
We loved Maison Lairoux - a beautiful house, great pool and the kids couldn’t believe the fabulous games room!
We spent most days at the beach - especially loved La Terrière for the great waves for body boarding and the nice café.
We really enjoyed the Château des Aventuriers - thanks for the recommendation Jason. And for something different, we enjoyed Mervent where we hired a boat and then went on to Chassonon (Lac) where there is a lake beach with a water slide and bouncy castle. 😊
Jason, Lucy, Grace & Harley. Aldermaston. July 2018
Back again! Lovely meals, lovely weather, lovely company. Would recommend la Faute sur Mer and Le Château des Aventuriers. Had a week by ourselves and a week with friends with lots of swimming and Xbox for the boys. Thank you Jason & Annette for another wonderful stay.
Our reply: We enjoyed your company and look forward to seeing you again next year!
Pet friendly holiday homes in the Vendee
Isabelle, Stéphane, Enola & Méleena. Betheny. July 2018. Plus Heywa & Jake the dogs.
Un second séjour tout aussi réussi que le premier l’an passé. Jason et Annette ont tout prévu pour que nos vacances soient parfait. Nous apprécions beaucoup le calme du lieu et la gentillesse des propriétaires – milles mercis pour tout !
Nous vous disons à l’année prochaine puisque nous avons déjà réservé pour 2019.
Paul, Louise, Martha, Hattie & Florence. Hove, August 2018
We’ve had an amazing time - L’Ecurie is fabulous - just like home from home. Jason & Annette are amazing hosts - loved the bike rides & top tips on what to do. Thank you both for everything. We certainly hope to be back….probably 2020.
“We really enjoyed going to Puy du Fou. I would really recommend it because the shows are mind-blowing! (Especially the Romans and the Bird Show) Martha, aged 8.
The Puy du Fou, Vendee
Kirsty, Craig, Sam, Tom, Lewis & Sharon. Staffordshire. August 2018.
Fabulous holiday - our 2 weeks have flown by! Maison Lairoux is a complete home from home: thank you to Annette & Jason for making our stay so great, nothing was too much trouble.
We’ve enjoyed the pool and gardens, visited local beaches (Les Conches was amazing for body boarding), went to the Puy du Fou, O’Gliss Water Park, the list goes on. Absolutely brilliant wake boarding at Atlantic Wake Park.
We’ve had such a chilled out holiday and are really sad to leave. We will definitely be back as there is still so much we want to do in this beautiful area.
Night swimming at Maison Lairoux
Neil, Clare, Emily & Eva. Challock, Kent August 2018
Another amazingly relaxing holiday – thank you!
We have not ventured too far as usual but enjoyed the pool and the beautiful gardens. We have had great days out at the O’Gliss Water Park, Vouvant and La Rochelle/Ile de Ré – all recommended. Beware the vertical drop slide at the water park!
Can’t wait till next year (our 7th visit!!) See you then. Xxx

Ewen, Carolina, Little Ewen, Mark and Harriet. Hondarribia, Spain. August 2018
We have had a fabulous time, we had everything we needed and also it was easy to find peace and quiet when it was needed. It has been a great opportunity for sharing some days with our friends! Another adventure to remember!! Muchas Gracias!
Ian, Anna, Lucy & Jack. Duffield. August 2018
Our second visit and another brilliant week, thank you so much Jason & Annette for your fabulous hospitality! I hope a year is enough time to recover for you before we visit again with the whirlwind that is Jack!
The children have loved it here, the pool & games room are brilliant and happy kids = happy us!
Thank you for my cycling boot camp Jason I have loved it. What a wonderful way to explore this beautiful area. As always, the beaches are fab & we had a great day in La Rochelle and at the aquarium.
Bring on two weeks in 2019!

Dilly the dog at Ecurie Holiday Home
Cliff, Robin and Dilly the Dog. Banbury. September 2018
Wonderful place – very comfortable gite, fabulous pool and amazing places to visit. The weather has been warm and sunny, and our hosts even warmer & sunnier.
Thank you for a wonderful week. Here’s to visiting again soon.
Angie & Deri, with May, Marley, Timo and Elodie. Jersey. September 2018
Thank you so much Annette & Jason for allowing us to holiday with our four dogs! You have been so friendly and helpful – this has been our best French holiday – and we have been many times to France!
The beauty here is outstanding and you keep an immaculate, fully equipped accommodation and setting. We will highly recommend your luxury holiday home far and wide. (Thank you to Annette for whizzing me to hospital to treat my insect bite!)
Thank you both for your friendly, kind hospitality. (We did not eat out much as we wanted to experience the amazing sunset view – dinner on the terrace al fresco!
However, dinner at the Auberge de Court d’Aron was superb (they allowed our 4 dogs on the terrace)
For dog owners – there is a long pathway walk behind the Church and for river walks/swims – the Vallée de Yon, and pathway walks at L’Aubraie, and the beaches!
Thank you Annette & Jason, we would love to return to your beautiful holiday home.

Janet & Michael, Jersey. October 2018.
Another great Autumnal break staying at L'Ecurie. Weather was amazing for the time of year 24/25 degrees!
It was lovely to sit outside the terrace for drinks with Annette & Jason until 10.00pm - a first for mid-October.
Had a great Sunday lunch at Au Fils de Saison in Luçon (hadn't been for a year or two). They did a special 'Vendéen Menu' paired with 2 glasses of wine for 33 euros - superb!
We also tried a new restaurant - Pousse Pied at La Tranche - Menu du Marché at lunchtime - 19 euros - great value - highly recommend.
Look forward to Feb 2019.
Wendy, Kelty & Christophe. Wittenheim, Alsace. Octobre 2018
Charmante maison, propre et bien équipée, on l’en se sent vite comme à la maison. Propriétaire accueillante et discrète, soucieuse du confort de tous ses invités. Les petits et les grands. Ici il ne manque rien. C’est une adresse à recommander. A bientôt.
