“Silence v Nature”
Reviewed 15 September 2013 for a stay in August 2013

Another perfect holiday at Le Maine. Great location on the edge of the village, very quiet, but easy walking distance to the village with a bakers, butchers, chemist and bar. Good market every Friday. Easy to get to all the sites of Dordogne and into Perigeaux which is a 20min drive away. The Maison was, as always, well equipped, very clean with a beautiful garden. The garden isn't landscaped but the trees around it make a roof and the dappled sunshine is perfect for relaxing under with a glass of red and reading, bliss! The cicadas chirrp away all day and in the evening its silence, no traffic, no people noise just peaceful quiet. This is the place for a very restful holiday. Catherine and Maxence are great hosts available to advice and chat but in the background if you want to be left alone. 2 Cats, a donkey,a sheep, bats, butterflies and bees are your only companions. The estate has 2 other holiday lets but apart from the occasional 'bonjour' you have no disturbance. Very sad to leave but planning our next visit soon.

“A beautiful hideaway in a romantic countryside”
Reviewed 30 May 2013 for a stay in May 2013

Le Maine is a romantic estate at the edge of the little village Cubjac. "Maison de Marc" is one the three apartments, which are all beautifully decorated with many nice details. The apartment is very comfortable and very well equipped. If you had a dream of a luxurious stay in a former French farmhouse, here's the place to make it come true.

“A match made in beauty heaven”
Reviewed 20 December 2012 for a stay in November 2012

person found this review helpful

Saturday night November 3rd (2012) fell dark and stormy as we arrived at La Maine residence. Having travelled from Paris a bit weary and worn we were greeted by the lovely owners Catherine and Maxence who introduced us “la Maison de Marc” an exquisite, warm, ultra cosy house where we were to spend a decadent week.
The following morning we woke to witness the beauty of our surroundings and set about exploring (in our pyjamas) their grounds, their forest (accessible through a magic doorway in the garden) and their wonderful fields, all infused with Autumns’s mellow fruitfulness.
Catherine and Maxence’s thoughtful, masterminding “conseils” had us trundling through the outstanding campagne visiting local markets abundant with best quality local produce and cultural visits which were carefully chosen (Ruffignac caves (a treasure) Roch St Christophe (a visit chez our ancestors) and Chateau Beynac (top) were our favorites.
Lastly, we acknowledge the two 4 legged stars here who we remember vividly (and with which my sons especially the youngest enjoyed a deep deep compatibility) Rothschild and Zebulon. We miss you !.
All kinds of MAGIC happens here in La Maine if you are lucky enough to discover…..

“Le Maine”
Reviewed 28 November 2012 for a stay in October 2012

My Husband and I spent 8 nights at this quintessential piece of french countryside paradise. The apartment was charming with a fireplace for added ambience. Each room was spacious and thoughtfully planned. Some of the vrbos we stayed in during our 3 month european adventure did not live up to the photos and description, however Le Maine exceeded them. Catherine et Maxence were wonderful hosts! Maxence helped us many times when we asked about getting to and from various sites in the area and Catherine set up a fantastic cooking course with a wonderful chef right there in our apartment. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend this property and truly enjoy the "art de vivre"!

“Best place in Dordogne!”
Reviewed 4 November 2012 for a stay in August 2012

This was my second visit with my family and another exceptional holiday. What a place! First of all I would like to say a massive thank you to Maxence and Cathrine for being so welcoming. If you want to relax and enjoy being outside then this is the perfect place,the scenery on the estate and the gardens is beautiful. It is about a ten minute walk to the boulangerie or butchers and local cafe/bar. At the cottage there are bikes to use, a lovely pool and table tennis. As a family we all loved to see the animals, Zebulon the donkey, Rothschild the sheep, Bibi the cat and the new little kitten Josephine. We loved the way in the morning you can hear Zebulon braying,its a lovely sound! We will be returning and are missing it deeply. This place is great to recomend to anybody who wants to relax and unwind. I would rate this 5 star as it the best place in Perigeaux!
