L'Ecurie is a lovely gite. Very well fitted out, with everything you could possibly need & more. The games room & pool are great, providing hours of entertainment. There is lots to do in the area, including visits to Puy du Fou and the Indian Forest Adventure Parc.
We have just enjoyed a glorious week at Maison Lairoux in the Vendee. What a lovely spot, the Gite was just perfect with great facilities, beautifully appointed, a heated swimming pool and everything you could want in a holiday cottage. The Gite enjoys a great position overlooking the Marais and is teeming with wildlife. There are storks to be seen perched on their nests, swans and we saw a couple of coypu swimming: we had thought they were beavers but not so. The sounds of birds are everywhere including Hoopoe, Golden Orioles as well as finches and tits. We brought our bikes here and this is lovely cycling country, flat with quiet roads and great little restaurants and bars nearby. The beaches at Aiguillon sur Mer and Faut sur Mer are great with lots of friendly bars and restaurants. Gosh this week has flown by and we hope to return soon.
L'Ecurie holiday home in Larouix.the welcome was First class with the owners Annette and Jason greeting us after a long drive.made the start of our holiday break great. The home was very comfortable and inviting,with a bottle of wine and chocolates on the table.certainly made it home from home.the home was very well equipped.from a teaspoon up to the clean and fresh bed linen. the only thing we found was that extra hand towels would have been better as only one hand towel between our 4 people.the out look from the home was lovely also the weather.was great. Our dog Poppy (who is on Facebook of this holiday Home Masion really enjoyed the large garden.the pool looked very inviting but was not open due to us being early for the season.the selection of games dvds and books etc.was really eye opening.too many to choice all available to use free along with the laptop and the wifi connection.and French and English tv.we are certainly planning a return trip longer than a week next time Cannot wait.THANKS TO THE OWNERS ANNETTE and JASON.
We spent a fantastic 2 weeks at Maison Lairoux! Our gite L'ecurie was very well equipped with everything one could possibly need for a self catering holiday. We loved the fantastic view from our patio and our girls (9 and 11) loved the pool, the big garden, the games room and the cats (especially Fleur!). Annette and Jason were fantastic hosts - thank so much for your hospitality - we enjoyed our drinks and BBQ evenings with you - and they know so much about the local area. We had some great days out - the O'Gliss Water Park and Puy du Fou are musts! There really is so much to do in the local area - with the beaches just 15 mins away. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Maison Lairoux to anyone! We would have booked again for next year but the gite is fully booked already - so we will be back again in summer 2018. We look forward to seeing Annette and Jason again then!

This was our first time in France as a family of 4 (with teenagers aged 14 & 18). The holiday home was just perfect for us, very spacious, well laid out with a gorgeous bathroom and a modern very well equipped kitchen. The gardens were lovely and full of butterflies and bees which my daughter loved to photograph. The pool was a godsend with the hot weather we had. And the surrounding area is a lovely quiet pretty place. You do need a car to get out and about but this wasn't a problem as we were keen to venture out every day to so many places, including La Rochelle, the island of Ile de Rae (very pretty with great views from the castle), Puy Du Fou (a huge hit with us all, very spectacular shows), and to gorgeous beaches including Tranche Sur Mer and Veillon Plage. And last but not least a mention of our fabulous hosts Annette and Jason (who live on site across the courtyard). They were simply so so friendly and helpful. Our week in France wouldn't have been the same if it wasn't for all their recommendations for places to visit, restaurants to go to and assistance with booking tickets (for Puy du Fou), taxi service 1 night and general chit chat every day. We highly recommend L'Ecurie Holiday home ;-)
