“The Dordogne Dream”

La Maine, The Dordogne Dream
Late March; we were unsure about taking holidays in the Dordogne, as our escape from the harsh Winter we were seeking a break somewhere warm. But my children (6 & 8yrs) can be persuasive and with the promise of La Maine and the slow motion world of its own far from the madding crowd we were heading back to the welcoming arms of the owners Catherine and Maxence.
We fell in love with La Maine the previous year and were already familiar with wilder beauty of La Maison de Marc where we had spent a week during Autumn (see our Trip advisor review). This year we opted for the slightly larger house La Maison de Colette et Mimi. Catherine has filled the house with a more sophisticated and decadent decoration which is cosy and very sweet . How fast we felt at home. Here the extra space was welcome as my kids are getting bigger the entire open plan top floor was their private space, they spent lots of hours playing there. The extra bathroom was well appreciated with a star treck like shower that the kids were battling to be first in.
Easter weekend fell during our stay so in French style we hid the eggs throughout the gardens. The egg hunt was truly magical for everyone. We also encountered some other lovely La Maine visitors, Nic and Paul, from New Zealand who were as touched as ourselves by La Maine and Catherine and Maxence.
What I recall most is doing my Vinyasa Flows on my mat at the back of Maison de Collette & Mimi on the terrace overlooking the meadow with the abundant lilac bushes, daffodils and bluebells filling the air with scents watching the children racing with Rothschild and Zebulon , our favorite sheep and donkey.
La Dordogne is a beautiful place but La Maine has a piece of my heart

“A delightful and tranquil holiday home”
Reviewed 4 September 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We stayed at Chez Mimi for a week with our 13 year old son. Le Maine is an ideal setting whether as a family or as a romantic hideaway. Outstanding facilities, exceptional hosts and a glorious location. We will definitely return to explore more that this property has to offer.

“perfect place to stay”
Reviewed 15 July 2014 for a stay in June 2014

What a wonderful place to stay! Chez collette et Mimi by far exceeded our expectations! The ambiance and decor are truly eclectic. Its just such a lovely place to be. So tranquil either sitting on the beautiful private terrace or in the many quiet spots around the gardens or just by the lovely pool. It was hard to drag ourselves away to explore the beautiful Dordogne region!
Catherine and Maxence met us on our arrival and proudly showed us around. They are always around if help and advice are needed but keep a discreet low profile as well! There is a superb exceptionaly well equiped kitchen which if you like to cook, and we did, is brilliant. We enjoyed several al fresco meals and a barbecue using locally sourced produce from the wonderful french markets which are so much fun to visit and a great test of our french language skills.
We just did not have time to visit all the places we intended as we were happy to just spend some days unwinding and relaxing at Le Maine..A good excuse for a revisit someday!

“simply beautiful”
Reviewed 12 July 2014 for a stay in June 2014

Fantastic location set in meadows of wild flowers & butterflies ,super swimming pool with a forest backdrop.Our accommodation was modern & spotless,well equipped kitchen,super comfy lounge.In all a truly lovely place to stay.Only downer for us was how hard we found the mattress in our bedroom but I concur that is personal preference.
You definitely need a car to get about & see the many chateau and pretty villages.Cubjac itself is nothing special.We called into the local bar & were completely ignored,so wended our way back to Chez Colette to open a bottle or 2 of wine!!
In all a super holiday marred only by the French air strike on our return.

“A beautiful home in a beautiful area”
Reviewed 23 October 2013 for a stay in September 2013

A week was not enough. We really enjoyed our stay in Cubjac, The gite was perfect for our needs, comfortable beds, excellent kitchen and bathrooms, a lovely private terrace, perfect for cocktails before dinner. Having not visited the Dordogne for very many years we had forgotten how beautiful the region is, there is so much of interest to do and just to see! Our hosts Catherine and Max were interesting and knowledgable about the region and we're very helpful when needed. Our holiday is fondly remembered.
