Guest Reviews 2020
For the first 5 months of this year we have been closed to the public due to the worldwide pandemic. However, by June, here in France, life is starting to get back to normal, so we have been able to open our doors and finally welcome some guests to our holiday homes.
Our third visit to L’Ecurie!
Once again we have had pretty good weather of most of the time.
The bird watching has been fantastic, especially at the Pointe d’Arçay. We have found new walks and revisited others. We’ve also found prehistory sites we had not seen before, which are fascinating.
We really enjoyed our ‘Apero’ evening with Annette, Jason and the cats. Thank you so much both of you!
Our final week in France – and what a great location & hosts in Jason and Annette. We have learned so much about France that will help us in our future.
Nous avons été superbement accueilli par Annette et Jason. La maison est très bien équipée et qui plus est accepte les chiens. La piscine est entourée de transats très confortables et on peut aussi bénéficier d'une salle de jeux avec ping pong, billard et de nombreux DVD. Il y a aussi une salle de fitness avec de nombreuses machines. Bref on avait de quoi s'occuper en plus des nombreuses visites dans le environs ( marais poitevin, plages, la Rochelle, île de ré,...).

Delighted that we managed to visit L’Ecurie this year. Different in September as we usually come for Winter breaks. It has been a fabulous week chilling out by the pool, weather glorious sunny warm 29 degrees, enjoying a glass or 2 of wine with Annette & Jason our very welcoming hosts/friends who are knowledgeable about all of the area.
We enjoyed a new restaurant this time ‘Les Reflets’ at La Roche sur Yon – a Michelin style restaurant – thoroughly recommend – great lunch at 22 Euros. Lovely lunch again at ‘Au Fils de Saison’ sitting out on the terrace – a first for us.
Thanks once again Annette & Jason. A Bientôt.
Thank you Annette & Jason for a wonderful month at L’Ecurie – our 4th visit here ! The welcome, hospitality and friendliness is outstanding – they are both great hosts and friends. L’Ecurie is so well equipped with everything you need, especially the fabulous pool, games room and sunsets. We’ve spent so many lovely evenings by the pool, having BBQs and sharing the ‘odd’ glass of vin.
The boys (aged 19 & 21) loved the Atlantic Wake Park and the Wipe Out circuit at L’Aiguillon sur Mer ; and we all loved and enjoyed the zoo in Mervent, where the animals have lots of freedom.
Les Sables d’Olonne has the most enormous selection of restaurants and bars, and is a fab night out.
Closer to home, The Bordeaux restaurant in Luçon has the best authentic pizzas and giant salads. We had pizza several times!!. L’Oncle Sam in Luçon was also a great night out – amazing burgers…. Like an American Diner. We visited L’Atelier too, where the food was good but the service is not!
In La Tranche sur Mer we had great steaks and chicken in Côté Bistrôt – and good service.
Port Bourgenay is a lovely place to be on a Wednesday evening.
We’ve all had an amazing, relaxing and refreshing month at Maison Lairoux…. Been like coming home.
Thank you both for being wonderful, we hope to see you next year.
Très agréable séjour au sein de cette maison à l'équipement parfait. Je rêve des enfants pour le bonheur des parentes.
I stayed in this beautiful location for two weeks and could not have asked for anything better ! The hosts, Annette & Jason, could not have been more welcoming, going above and beyond for us in every situation that they could. The accommodation itself was very well looked after, everything was clean and up to date. Whether you are chilling by the pool, playing in the games room or even having a spot to eat with the amazing views, the hosts have made sure we are comfortable and everything is going smoothly !
We could not have asked for anything more and for that we are eternally grateful – we cannot thank them enough !!!
Thank you very much for the most relaxing stay. We really appreciated all of the wonderful facilities, the playroom was amazing & the heated pool kept the little ones entertained & allowed us to relax! By far the best holiday property for children we have stayed in.
Thank you for your hospitality & wine tips!
We will definitely be back and look forward to coming back soon. Thank you for everything.
Like many, our original holiday plans were scuppered by COVID, but a last minute scramble brought us to Le Vieux Café following a cancellation – and we were incredibly lucky. A beautiful house in a beautiful location with such hospitable hosts. Everything you need is here, such a perfect place to unwind, but there is so much to see and do in the area too.
A week was nowhere near long enough. The house is enough to bring us back, but the long list of sites we didn’t get to see and beaches we didn’t visit almost guarantees we’ll be back.
Jason & Annette’s tips & advice are incredibly helpful, it has been great having them to hand.
Thank you so much for a lovely holiday.
PS: Le Cul de Poule in La Faute sur Mer & Coté Bistrot in La Tranche sur Mer are good places to eat (in our opinion !)
Nous avons passé de très agréables vacances en Vendée dans votre gîte. La piscine, la salle de jeux, la terrasse, le BBQ …. Nous avons profité au maximum de vos équipements et c’était parfait.
Nos amis et proches qui nous ont visités ont aussi apprécié le calme et la région.
La Vendée, Lairoux, La Tranche, pour nos 1ère vacances post-lockdown avec notre bébé, c’était idéal !!!
Merci encore et à bientôt !!!
Cette année encore, nous avons passé de merveilleuses vacances ici.
Merci pour cet accueil chaleureux, nous avons passé du bon temps en la compagnie de Jason et Annette !
Nous avons aussi bien profité de la piscine !
Merci encore pour tout ce que vous avez fait, pour votre bonne humeur et toutes vos petites attentions !
Nous avons hâte de revenir vous voir !
A l’année prochaine !
Thank you very much for your welcoming us as if we came home.
We have enjoyed our stay at Maison Lairoux!! It was really relaxing, the swimming pool, reading in the garden, playing games. Visiting little towns like Jard sur Mer, L’Aiguillon sur Mer etc.. and especially Ile de Ré!
Also, our dog Noah enjoyed it, certainly during the walk in the Valley de l’Yon
Séjour très agréable. Gîte avec le maximum de confort. Piscine et salle de jeux beaucoup utilisés par les enfants.
Entre plage et Marais Poitevin, ce gîte est idéalement situé.
Et je n'oublie pas de remercier nos hôtes très accueillants. Merci à eux pour leur gentillesse.
Nous avons passé un excellent week-end. Tout y est pour occuper petits et grands. Merci pour votre accueil chaleureux et votre disponibilité.
Au plaisir de vous revoir!
