Maison Lairoux Holiday Cottages, complete with Heated Pool, Large Games room and Gardens.
The pool is heated from May until the end of September each year. This is a salt based pool, rather than Chlorine, so no stinging eyes!
The garden is set on four different levels with the top level containing the large courtyard for parking (up to 6 cars), a grassy area for relaxation and a boules court for your amusement.
It is situated opposite the pool area and is perfect for children of all ages! Parents often leave the children to entertain themselves in the games room whilst they relax on a sun lounger on the terrace of the nearby pool or sit and read under the shady veranda outside of the games room.
Many an entertaining evening has been spent on the veranda with our guests and a glass or two of our local wines and homemade aperitifs.
⭐️ For babies and toddlers, there are lots of soft cuddly toys, plus Duplo and bedtime story books.
⭐️ For young children there dressing up clothes, lego, dolls, animal farm and drawing materials.
⭐️ For older children there are reading books, DVD library, board games and ball games.
⭐️ For teenagers there is a table tennis table, Xbox 360, Kubb throwing game, and body boards.

Beyond the vegetable garden lies the extensive lower garden where your children can run & play in safety. There is a large wooden sofa and low table made from recycled pallets surrounded by a wildflower area and overlooking the lawn. A perfect spot for sitting with a book and listening to the birds chirping.
We have several fruit trees - cherry, plum, mirabelle, apple, pear and walnut - so lots of fruits for you crumbles! In the evening you can watch the sun set over the Marais and listen out for the extensive range of birds that live in the gardens – including the Owls that have a nest box in one of our trees, and the Hoopoes that visit in the spring. The garden is also great for dogs - it is fenced in on all sides and large enough to run around in!
We often have Kubb competitions in the garden - with everyone joining in and ending with a post-match Apero - usually a tasting of some of the fruit liqueurs that we make from the garden fruit.
