This was the second time we have stayed here, having re-booked for the following year on the first day of our first holiday at l'ecurie! The gite is suberbly equipped with everything you could possibly need during your holiday, apart from the usual stuff; washing machine, diswasher etc. You get little extras which make such a difference; ranging from tea, salt & pepper to an oyster knife,decanter and fresh herbs from the garden!
Annette and Jason are wonderful hosts and provide as much or as little support as you require, able to give great advice about local restaurants, places of interest and even the inside track on where to source the best wine! Annette is a great cook and her home made pizza and chutneys are not to be missed!
The gym, pool and games room and 'terrain de boules' provide an excellent source of entertainment and proved very popular with our 2 teenagers and were also a way to make new friends. The laptop and wifi was great to have and the option to watch a bit of English TV was also good to keep up with the news back home. Lairoux itsself is a quaint village with lovely places to walk and some lovely views, we took our dog with us and he just loved the experience!
Its location is excellent as it is very near the coast, local large supermarkets and shops and some really great restaurants in Lucon. We also love la faute sur mer with its great seafood restaurants (chez Gegene on the bridge looks very basic, but the food and service is great.) also our children love playing boules in la faute itself, in the evening there is a nightly rock-making demo at the large ice-cream and sweet shop, just listen out for the bell! The mini golf and shops are also open in the evenings and are good fun.
This gite has something to offer everyone and I recommend it!

We thoroughly enjoyed our week long stay at Maison Lairoux. We had lovely weather which made our stay fab. The kids( and we did) enjoyed the pool. Our friends came to visit us and we our all coming back next year...Jason and Annette were very helpful with hints and tips on where to eat, shop and explore and how to get there. Thank you.
