Lucy, Jason, Grace & Harley, Aldermaston June 2012
We have had a fab 2nd time here at mason Lairoux. We even brought our friends from home. We have had fun despite the odd weather. Some windy days - just like home. Took the kids Go-Karting at La Jonchère - they had fun and so did Jason P. Had a lovely meal at L'Ardoise Gourmande in Luçon. Next time we won't take the kids! Worth a visit. The boating at L'Abbeye Maillezais only 45 minutes away is worth a visit too. Thanks go to Jason & Annette for their help and chats every day and the vin…..
Jason, Jane, Harry & Ella, Reading June 2012
2nd visit here - wish we could have stayed longer! Great hosts - hope you'll have us back. Very, very good! Thank you - Harry!
James, Sarah, Isaac (aged 2), Brian & Hazel, West Yorkshire June 2012
Thanks to Annette & Jason for their wonderful house and hospitality - any possible need was extremely well catered for! We've been to so many wonderful places (most of which have been mentioned by previous guests!) but we've particularly enjoyed Coulon where we hired a boat to row along the canals. For those with kids, Luçon and Talmont Saint Hilaire both have good playgrounds. We adults enjoyed a boat trip at Port Bourgenay too! And for a day out for the whole family, Le Château des Aventuriers at Avrillé is worth a visit (but better take a picnic as food choice is limited!) We've had a brilliant time here, thanks again and see you again in years to come!

The McFadzean's second visit and brought along the Bairds this time. Great hospitality once again from Annette & Jason who came to our rescue with toilet rolls (9 bodies in one house!) Lovely beaches at La Tranche sur Mer & Les Sables d'Olonne. Plenty things to do, but when the weather is good - the pool is all you need for amusement. Will be recommending house to all our friends.
Lucy, Julian, Ben, Oscar & Rudi, Oxfordshire July 2012
A wonderful week, wish we could have stayed longer. We love the house, gardens, the pool & also the games room. Excellent meal at L'Equinoxe in La Tranche sur Mer. Ile de Re worth a visit (the cycle paths are great), plus the beach at Les Conches. Small, but good wine cave at Angles. Jason & Annette's hospitality (plus making new friends with the cats!) made us very relaxed. See you again!!
Georgina, aged 9, Teddington July 2012
Thank you Jason & Annette for your lovely house and swimming pool. There was lots of nice cutlery & equipment. Jason & Annette were very kind & helpful. There are lots of things for the beach and inflatables for the swimming pool. I love the cats, especially Fleur!
Lydia, aged 12, Teddington, July 2012
Only 1 week! Thank you very much Jason and Annette for this AMAZING gite and pool. Numerous displays have been performed in that pool with the other family and special thanks to Jason who allowed us to borrow his underwater camera. The gite is excellently equipped but if we ever did need anything, all you had to do was knock on Jason & Annette's door. I have especially enjoyed playing with your cats, although Fleur spent most of her time in our cupboard!!!
James, Ann, Joseph, Daniel & Rachel, Redhill, July 2012
We've had a really fabulous week here in this wonderful house. Idyllic location - beautiful views, lovely garden and great, much-used pool. The weather has been glorious, so we have enjoyed the beach at Les Conches - fantastic waves for bodyboarding! Spent most of our time here - why go elsewhere when all you need is on site? Children loved the pool and the well-equipped games room. And Joe enjoyed talking I.T. with Jason.
Overall, a really relaxing week; Jason & Annette have been such marvellous hosts - we have already booked for 2 weeks next summer! Many thanks - we will certainly recommend this place to family and friends.
Nicki, Peter, Sarah & Rosie, Nottingham, August 2012
Third year in a row for the Baguleys - thanks again for all your help, advice and friendship. Highlights included the Aquarium at Talmont, Puy du Fou and La Rochelle.
Sarah - Thank you for another great holiday. I really enjoyed it.
Rosie - Thank you very much for my wonderful holiday, I have never been abroad in Europe, so staying at Maison Lairoux has given me high expectations for future holidays in Europe!
Nicki - Thank you for my lovely birthday cake.
Mark, Lou, Jess, Sophie, & Josh, Maidenhead, August 2012
Had a wonderful 2 weeks here - we are going home completely relaxed. Nothing has been too much trouble - (even relatives who were let down by their holiday accommodation were made to feel welcome - 5 extras for dinner and a sleepover too!) Games room and badminton much appreciated as was the chance to go late night swimming.
Paul, Jane, Matthew & Thomas. Salisbury August 2012
Our first stay at Maison Lairoux and we thoroughly enjoyed it….the pool and table tennis kept the boys happy!! Accommodation very good & facilities (internet & UK TV) very useful. Thanks and looking forward to visiting next year.
Thomas (13) - Thank you for a wonderful holiday. The pool and house were amazing. We have been to France on holiday two times before and this was the best. Jason and Annette were very kind and helpful. The table tennis kept me and Matthew entertained for ages. Thank you and hope we can come again next year. (The cats were lovely too)
The Frooms, Cardiff & South Africa August 2012
It was amazing that this house has had everything we thought of - including bicycles, picnic gear and beach equipment.
Josh (7) - It was very, very hot. I am definitely coming back. Thank you.
Nikki, Dave, Luke & Jessica. Cannock August 2012
A fantastic week had by all. Fabulous house, excellent facilities, great location and fantastic hosts! We would highly recommend a stay at Maison Lairoux to all our friends. Thank you - we've had fun and made great memories.
Luke (11) & Jess (9) - Our first and hopefully not only visit to Maison Lairoux. The facilities kept us entertained for hours, especially the pool and the games room. In the pool there were loads of inflatables to keep us entertained and have fun with Victoria and Nathaniel in the other house. Near by there were loads of markets and beaches about 15-20 minutes away. We also love the cats.
Linda, Mark, Christian, Sam, Alex, Victoria & Nathaniel. Croydon August 2012
What a really wonderful and relaxing holiday we have enjoyed here - with everything included, especially the cats for the little ones. Thanks for being such welcoming and caring hosts Jason & Annette - especially in our in our time of need with broken car windows. The facilities were wonderful and the freedom for the children idyllic. All the information was available with enthusiasm and most of all the level of hospitality was unheard of - thank you so much.
Clare, Neil, Emily & Eva. Ashford August 2012
We don't want to leave! This is an amazing place! - beautiful gites, so well equipped that as a mum, I didn't have to worry about anything. Jason & Annette are such great hosts, nothing is too much trouble and we felt completely at home. 😊 We didn't venture out much as there is everything you need here - pool and games room were a big hit with Emily (7) which meant we could relax. We did enjoy a lovely day on Il de Re and a fantastic meal in Avrillé - Le Menhir - steak cooked over a woodsmoke - delicious! This place is a must for families - we will recommend it to everyone. Have already booked for next year! Thank you for all your hard work. 😃
Heather & Edward. Hampshire September 2012
Great gite with everything we needed, and more. Brilliant weather virtually the whole time. We enjoyed surfing at Les Conches and our visit to La Rochelle. Jason and Annette - thank you for being wonderful hosts and for the fizz on my birthday. We couldn't have been better looked after and can understand why so many people come back again and again.
Stephan, Mary, Clare, Sam, Charlotte & Elspeth. Manchester & Rugby September 2012.
Lovely gite with all needs catered for. We had lovely weather and the pool was a great hit with everyone. The play room was excellent, Charlotte passed many 'quiet' yours in there. House very well equipped for catering for ourselves, but many good places to eat. Marais boat trip at Maillezais v. good. La Rochelle really worth a visit, as is Sables d'Olonne - our favourite beach. Cycling in the area is brilliant, with lots of easy to follow routes. Thanks for all your help and advice about the area.
Catherine et Christian. Paris October 2012
Très joli séjour, bel appartement et une très grande gentillesse de nos hôtes.
Famille Guignan, Fontainebleau November 2012
Nous vous remercions pour votre accueil, fort sympathique. Votre gite est très agréable et nous avons permis ainsi de passer de bons moments en compagnie de nos enfants et de notre petit-fils.
