    Description

    Le Vieux Caf is set in the beautiful Vende countryside, in the small village of Lairoux. This is only a 10-minute drive to the cathedral town of Luon where you will find many shops, supermarkets and restaurants. The safe sandy beaches of La Faute and La Tranche sur Mer are only 20 minutes away. The area has an excellent hiking and cycling network.

    The House contains many period features along with a modern fully equipped kitchen. There is also a private al fresco seating and BBQ area in front of the house. In the extensive gardens you will find a 12 x 7 metre heated pool (shared with one other 2 bedroomed gite), a boules court and a large garden area to explore.

    This property boasts lots of period features and at the turn of the 20th Century it was the hub of village life - being the local caf and restaurant. The living room contains a large bookcase - with all types of holiday reading and there is also secure wireless internet access. The sofa can also be used as an extra bed, as it folds out into a large sofa bed.

    There are three bedrooms (1 with kingsized bed, cot & single bed, and 2 twin bedrooms. An extra single bed available if needed).

    There are two bathrooms - the ground floor one has a shower, WC and hand basin, and the first floor bathroom has a double shower cubicle, hand basin and separate WC.

    For guests with young children, we have stair gates both at the top and bottom of the stairway, plus a cot, baby bath, changing mat, highchair and lots of plastic utensils.

    The garden is set on four levels with the top level containing the large courtyard for parking, a grassy area for relaxation and a boules court for your amusement. A gentle slope then takes you down to the enclosed 12m x 7m heated swimming pool where you can relax in the sun. For children we also have lots of inflatables.

    Beyond the swimming pool and down a few steps youll find our organic vegetable garden, where only the hardworking should venture! Beyond the vegetable garden lies the extensive lower garden where the children can run & play in safety. In the evening you can watch the sun set over the Marais and listen out for the extensive range of birds that live in the gardens including the Barn Owls!

    The games room is situated opposite the pool area and is available for all guests to use during their stay. You will find many amusements here, such as table tennis, billiards, board games, books, huge DVD library, and a TV area with Xbox 360 and many games. Paints, pencils & crayons are also supplied, and children can draw on the chalk boards

    There is also extensive tourist information provided in the games room.

    Reviews submitted by the advertiser

    Vicky, Ian, Jamie, Josh & Charlie. Cornwall. August 2020
    Thank you very much for the most relaxing stay. We really appreciated all of the wonderful facilities, the playroom was amazing & the heated pool kept the little ones entertained & allowed us to relax! By far the best holiday property for children we have stayed in.
    Thank you for your hospitality & wine tips!
    We will definitely be back and look forward to coming back soon. Thank you for everything.

    Jules, Chris, Joey & Macintosh the Scottie. Hull, December 2019
    A return visit to Maison Lairoux! Thank you Annette & Jason for your warm welcome, hospitality and kindness which Mac most certainly appreciated! We enjoyed spending time on the beach at La Faute, with fabulous walks, pottering around Vouvant and of course celebrating a rather 'French' New Year's Eve with you, which was excellent.
    You have both again gone above and beyond to make our stay in the Vende truly memorable.

    Clare, Neil, Emily & Eva. Ashford, August 2019
    Thank you Annette and Jason for another fantastic holiday ( our 7th time here!) Lots of relaxation and time to enjoy the beautiful pool and gardens. As usual we enjoyed some lovely evenings with food and drinks and lots of laughs. We had brilliant trips out in La Rochelle, Vouvant and Fontenay Le Comte and a great afternoon on the beach near La Grire. Emily and Eva enjoyed the market in La Tranche and most importantly the Churros!! This is such a relaxing place and a home from home with everything you could ever need. I have no doubt that we will be back before long.
