The first floor shower room has a double shower cubicle, hand basin and separate WC. The Vendee is famous for its long sandy beaches and flat landscape - ideal for cycling along the miles of guided pathways. There are many tourist attractions nearby - including the Puy du Fou Theme Park, The O'Gliss Water Park, Atlantic Wake Park, the Indian Forest (for zip wires, karting, water slides and pony rides), the Floral gardens and Lotus Lake at the Court D'Aron and the miles of canals at the Marais Poitevin. La Rochelle and the Il de Re are within an hours' drive and are both well Worth a visit. More

Interaction with guests
Annette and Jason, your hosts, live onsite and will be there to welcome you at the start of your holiday. They love to let you know where the best restaurants and activities are, and often hold impromptu 'Apero Nights' where the guests staying in both of their holiday homes can meet up over a glass of local wine or two!

About the neighbourhood
Lairoux is a small village on a hill overlooking the beautiful Vendée countryside. The house has fantastic views over the valley below. The village has a bakery van which delivers fresh bread & croissants everyday and there is a small bar in the square serving food on Friday evenings and Sunday lunch times. Luçon is only 10 minutes away and makes a nice day out with a visit to the 600 year old cathedral or a saunter around the Jardin Dumaine to see the ornate gardens and bandstand. The area is full of tourist attractions - such as the Indian Forest Adventure park, the car museum, the old port at La Rochelle or the many ruined castles and abbeys. The main attractions in the Vendee are the fantastic beaches - some for surfing, body boarding, rock pooling or just relaxing! The surrounding...
Getting around
Our holiday home is set in the pretty village of Lairoux, on a small hill overlooking a beautiful wetland valley below. A car is essential, as the nearest shops and restaurants are a 10 minute drive away. The beaches are only 15km and La Rochelle and Les Sables d'Olonne are both 50 minutes away.
