About the neighbourhood
Lairoux is a small village on a hill overlooking the beautiful Vendée countryside. The house has fantastic views over the marshes below! 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. The surrounding countryside is great to explore and there are many guided walks around the area - stopping off in many of the picturesque little villages for a coffee or beer - many having weekly markets and brocante or antiques fairs at the weekends. For a more active holiday, there are many watersports available at La Tranche or Les Sables D'Olonne including surfing, sand kiting, diving and jet skiing. We are also within 60 minutes drive of the theme parks of Puy de Fou and Futuroscope
Getting around
A car is essential for this house as it is set in a small village, with little public transport. There are country walks and cycle paths directly from the house.
