Lairoux and the Surrounding Area
Maison Lairoux Holiday Cottages are only 8km from the historic town of Luçon, once the home of Cardinal Richelieu who was Bishop of Luçon from 1606 - 1623, and who commissioned the imposing cathedral in the town centre. Surrounding the cathedral there are many bars, cafés and shops. There are also lots of restaurants, some with al fresco dining, and in the summer months Luçon holds many musical evenings and summer fayres. There is also a bustling market twice a week, selling local foods, wines and honey.
The area is also renowned for its amazing fresh seafood - with kiosks selling mussels, oysters and the catch of the day down at the harbour at L'Aiguillon sur Mer.
The Vendée is a region of beaches, lush green countryside and many attractions just waiting to be explored.
