La Cuisine de Alice au Maine

Overview
Farmhouse -
1 Bedroom , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 2
Perigueux, Dordogne, Nouvelle-Aquitaine
La Cuisine d'Alice is a gracious one-bedroom house on the grounds of the French country estate known as La Chartreuse du Maine, and is one of three vacation homes located on the property, around the courtyard.

Le Maine is situated in the peaceful countryside, at the edge of the small village of Cubjac, just five minutes walk from the local shops and weekly farmers' market. The estate encompasses 63 acres of gardens, meadows and wooded paths. In the middle of a meadow filled with wild flowers, the swimming pool is an ideal spot to relax. The unique situation of La Chartreuse du Maine in the centre of the Dordogne region makes it the perfect base to explore the many châteaux, villages, prehistoric caves, markets and wine yards of the area.

Newly restored in the most pure Périgord tradition, this very spacious home has kept, in a...

Located next to Cubjac, a small town in Perigord North, this family estate houses three different rentals. We stayed in La Cuisine d' Alice--beautiful with everything we could possibly need. It was for two people. The grounds were lovely and restful--gardens, pool, trails to hike,...More

About the neighbourhood
Le Maine benefits from its unique location in the center of the Dordogne region, close to Sarlat and any major attraction the area has to offer, whilst being in the peaceful countryside, away from the crowds, a little off the beaten track. Guests really appreciate coming back to the peace and quiet of La Chartreuse du Maine after a day's visit around Brantome, Sarlat and along the Dordogne Valley. After the buzz and activity of the major sites, the tranquillity of this traditional corner of the Périgord is invaluable. From Le Maine you can walk or go bike riding amidst the surrounding countryside and villages. The Auvézère river, which runs through Cubjac, is perfect for canoe rides. Nearby, children will love tree walking and aqua parks.

Le Maine is located at the edge of the small v...
