Welcome to Maison Lairoux Holiday Cottages in the Vendée, France

Maison Lairoux Holiday Cottages, 15km from the Vendee coast in Western France.

Imagine - driving from your holiday cottage to one of the many local sandy beaches (only 15 minutes away!), spending the day at the beach - sunbathing, playing in the waves, eating ice cream and Chi-Chis, building sand castles and then wandering along to a beach-front restaurant for some locally caught seafood or 'Moules & Frites'.

Maison Lairoux is the perfect location for summer holidays - with quick access to the beaches, yet far enough away that you can relax in peace and quiet on the patio terrace after a long day of site seeing.

Even out of the summer months there is so much to do here!

  • For families with pre-school aged children - our games room is full of toys just for them! Plus the beaches/car parking etc.. are not so busy!

  • For birdwatchers and nature lovers we have a wide variety of flora & fauna to see - with a natural flood plain at the bottom of the garden attracting migratory birds each autumn and spring.

  • For cyclists we have lots of undulating country lanes nearby - and over 1800km of marked cycle paths & trails.

  • For Dog Lovers - we are very dog friendly, have a large garden, and provide lots of toys for your pet. We have lots of Dog friendly beaches in the Vendée and can let you know the best spots for walkies!

  • For Stargazers - we have very dark skies and cloud-free nights. We can see the Milky Way with the naked eye, and often see the summer meteor showers (usually watch them lying on a sun lounger, drinking hot chocolate!)

  • For Wine Lovers - we have the Fief Vendéen Wine route - starting only a 10 minute drive away in Mareuil-sur-Lay. You can visit the vineyards, taste the wine and cycle around the vines. Make sure you leave lots of space in your car boot to take wine home with you!

  • For artists - we have sweeping landscapes, deserted beaches, medieval villages and lots more to draw, paint and photograph.

Read what some of our recent guests have said about our holiday cottages here at Maison Lairoux …..
We have had a lovely week celebrating my 60th birthday with family. The facilities at the cottage are very good, home from home! We have enjoyed the cottage gardens, peace and quiet, sweet birdsong and especially the spacious and refreshing swimming pool. Children loved the playroom (filled to the brim with interesting & active things to do). All in all, a wonderful stay.

Thank you, Annette, and Jason for a wonderful stay in your beautiful holiday cottage and such a warm welcome. The cottage is the most well equipped we have found, and the facilities are excellent. The weather was hot, so we enjoyed the local beaches and pool. Sitting on our beautiful terrace in the evening was bliss. We enjoyed hearing the owls and seeing hedgehogs.

The Long Beach at Les Sables d Olonne

Our Favourite Beaches in the Vendée

The Vendée is famous for its long sandy beaches, windswept sand dunes and amazing surfing conditions. We are so lucky to be living at Maison Lairoux Holiday Cottages - only a 15 minute drive to some of these beaches. I just had to share our favourite ones with you in this ‘Vendée Beach blog’.

I hope that you will come to love them as much as we do!


Both Le Vieux Café and L’Ecurie Holiday Cottages are open throughout the year, and can be booked for either whole weeks from Mid-May until the end of September, or for short breaks of 3 nights or more during the remainder of the year.

Summer bookings will start and end on a Saturday, but we can be more more flexible at other times of the year.

Please ask for more details and remember to Book Direct with us for the best price, service and local knowledge. (We do advertise on other online travel websites, but some of those may charge you a fee of up to 20% extra, and all of them charge us!) Just trying to save you some money! #BookDirect
Check out the weather in the Vendée! We have a micro-climate, and can often have lovely sunny weather from April until the end of October. Spring and Autumn are great times of the year to explore - with temperatures ranging from 15 to 20 degrees centigrade. The nights are chilly though, so bring a jumper!
The summer is long and warm - usually starting around mid May and going on until mid September. Temperatures can get as high as 35 degrees in a heatwave year, but are usually at a comfortable mid-20s range! See our Weather in the Vendée Page for lots more information about what to expect during your stay!
