“A fantastic find!”
Reviewed October 23, 2013 for a stay in September 2013

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.

“Better Than Home -- Maybe!”
Reviewed October 16, 2013 for a stay in October 2013

My husband and I just stayed in La Maison de Marc one week ago and decided that this absolutely lovely rental was better than home. It is a beautifully and lovingly decorated former chicken coop with clever accent pieces of chickens and roosters set around the cottage. Not at all "cutesy", these critters add a coziness to the rooms. Such a terrific find for anyone to stay in this cottage on the lovely estate which is owned and maintained by Catherine and Maxene. One has all of the necessary comforts for a wonderful holiday in France without any of the chores of home. It is truly a special place to stay and a convenient walk into the sweet village with the charming old stone bridge connecting one side of the village to the other. We found that the location was so perfect for visiting Perigueux, Sarlat, Beynac, Domme, plus all of the other delightful sights which tourists never want to miss! One can return home at night and escape the hustle and bustle of the busy areas. Relax by the inviting pool, stroke a kitten, stroll down to the donkey pen, or sit in your own, very private back garden, listening to the birdsong while you enjoy a glass of wine. This is France at its most charming!

“magical”
Reviewed September 28, 2013 for a stay in September 2013

We stayed at La Maine in early September on a family holiday and can only concur with all previous comments made. Catherine and Maxence were such fabulous hosts with a warm welcome and unforgetable first evening spent dancing in the streets in Cubjac with Maxence on the harmonica. Catherine has a tremendous attention to detail which shines through in La Maison with superb linen, good quality beds/mattresses, divine soap, arranged strawberries, local goats cheese. Oh how we loved the garden next to the woods, the pool, the tranquility...... we are not cat lovers but became very attached to Bibi!. We were very sad to leave and only wished they were our neighbours, as I am sure we would be great friends.

“Silence v Nature”
Reviewed September 14, 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 May 29, 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 December 20, 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 November 28, 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"!
