“A perfect choice for your vacation in the Dordogne region”
Reviewed 4 April 2012 for a stay in August 2011

We have stayed in Le Maine for two years in a row and have already booked to return this summer. We have always enjoyed our stay there. Two more accommodating hosts in Catherine and Maxence would be hard to find. We have two young children who loved making friends with the animals in Le Maine (Zebulon the donkey, Rothschild the sheep, and the cats who came to visit our cottage). We have enjoyed good weather during our stays and the relaxing by the pool allowed us to unwind. The cottages are equipped with all mod cons and are equipped to the highest spec and taste. The grounds of Le Maine are kept immaculate and our son enjoyed exploring the woods at the back of the cottage.

“A Dream of Beauty and Ease”
Reviewed 17 February 2012 for a stay in September 2011

What can we say that hasn’t been said by the other guests? We concur with all the positive comments posted at vrbo. We have rented houses many times over many years in all regions of France and the US and this was absolutely the best of them in every way. We always hope for the best, but aren’t surprised when the best isn’t quite what we get. This time we got it! During our stay, we felt more like house guests than ‘tenants’. Upon arrival we found wine, bread, cheese, and strawberries to welcome us. The house was spotless. It and the other unit I observed (for possible future use by friends or family) were exquisitely renovated by Maxence and Catherine, and it was apparent that they were both very talented and artistic as well as warm and welcoming hosts who were helpful in every way they could be. Maxence even shared his secrets for buying (at the local market) and preparing magret de canard! Our first try wasn’t bad. Living in Maison de Marc for eight days was simply wonderful. The house was charming and chic. The house, bathroom and kitchen’s renovation was well designed and executed -- perfectly combining historic rustic features and modern convenience. The little garden was private, tranquil-- a great place for reading, drinks and our light evening supper. The internet worked perfectly (a necessity for us). We even became fond of the ‘calls’ of Zebulon the resident donkey. Having bikes at the ready made it easy for us to have a nice bike ride on some mornings, ride to the local boulangerie, or to the market on Friday. There were plenty of safe roads on which to ride as well. We loved the area. Having rented a house on the Fenelon estate south of the Dordogne several years ago, we explored closer to Cubjac this time. Perigueux market was fun and lunches at L’Essential and Ferme St. Louis were excellent. The new Vesuna Gallo Roman Museum that houses a Roman villa is the best of that period we have seen. Further afield we enjoyed the Jardins du Manoir d’Eyrignac and the lovely lunch we had on the terrace there. The local Bergerac rose was terrific on the unseasonably hot days of late September . Communications with Catherine via email were prompt and payment made with ease via Paypal (as opposed to the wire transfer method that requires more cost and a trip to a bank). The listing and photos were very accurate. Being there is even better. Everyone seems to say “we will return”. We have made plans to return in September 2012!
