What a beautiful place to stay. We had a beautiful cottage with private outdoor areas, comfortable beds, lovely linens, new kitchen, spa-like bath, and were only moments to all the food, sights and shopping of the Dordogne. This rental is moments from the city of Perigoux, the hosts could not be more helpful. Dining out options abound, but if you want to have your own foie gras with a glass of Bergerac wine then a few steps outside your own door there are private areas to savour this little corner of the world--it is all easily arranged! The rental was spotless, we had wi-fi, and a 5 minute walk for fresh morning croissants.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here - Catherine and Maxence gave us a very warm welcome (even though we arrived late at night due to our flight being delayed) and left us bread, cheese, strawberries and wine which were very gratefully received! The grounds of the cottage are lovely and the pool area is beautiful with amazing views.
The surrounding area is beautiful with lots of gorgeous villages/towns to visit. Maxence gave us a map with places marked out and was very helpful with suggestions as to where would be good for us to go, as we had our 9 month old daughter with us.
We would thoroughly recommend Le Maine and hope to visit again in the future!
Superb accommodation in a really lovely spot. The cottage is extremely pretty, comfortable and well equipped - the owners have lavished huge care and attention in restoring, decorating and furnishing it. (It's also all on one floor, which made it ideal for my elderly mother, with just a couple of steps into the house). The extensive grounds of the Chartreuse are beautiful and tranquil, though our favourite place was our delightful private back garden, which was a perfect sun trap. Catherine and Maxence are excellent hosts, and we particularly appreciated the local cheese, strawberries, walnut bread and wine that they'd kindly left in the kitchen for our arrival. It's a great base for exploring the northern Dordogne, but we often didn't go as far afield as we'd planned, because we were always so keen to get back to the Maison de Marc and spend time enjoying its charm and peace. We wish we'd stayed longer, and we certainly hope to go back.
Our response to this holiday is that same as all others I have seen, you will not be disappointed. Catherine and Maxence are warm, welcoming and above all helpful hosts. They are happy to share their fabulous home with all of their guests and how lucky we were that they did. We cannot recommend Le Maine highly enough, it is in a lovely location on the edge of Cubjac, a very pretty typical French village. There is so much to see and do in the Dordogne, go and find it for yourself.
La Maison de Marc, set within the grounds of "La Chartreuse du Maine", certainly has the "wow" factor. We could not believe our luck in finding such an idyllic place to stay for our holiday in the Dordogne. This charming cottage was beyond our expectations and more than lived up to its description. It is beautifully furnished, very comfortable and well equipped. It was so welcoming we immediately felt at home.
It was a pleasure to meet the owners, Catherine and Maxence, on our arrival. They were charming hosts and could not have been more friendly and helpful.
We highly recommend La Maison de Marc as a place to stay in the Dordogne.
