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!
