“A beautiful place that one must return to...”
Reviewed October 8, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

La Maison du Marc de Maine was a wonderful, restful place to stay. We were welcomed by our hosts by way of some regional wine, delicious strawberries and locally produced goat's cheese and bread. We supped on this for dinner, outside in the well appointed garden, listening to the sounds of the small birds around us. The cottage, once a henhouse/farmhouse, has been renovated to perfection, whilst maintaining the romantic elements of a time past. The kitchen is well-appointed, and the bedrooms and living areas cosy. A bouquet of flowers (dahlias, meadow blooms and ivy sprigs) delighted us upon arrival. Plenty of wood for the fire, and ambient light to read by in the evening. The village of Cubjac is quiet, but importantly houses a boulangerie which produces the most terrific chocolate eclairs and croissants. The range of bread is also pleasing. Cubjac could do with some more life, as there are echoes of what once was a thriving town, so I recommend this place for the traveller.

“A beautiful place to relax, with immaculate accommodation”
Reviewed September 25, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We spent a wonderful week here earlier this year, in July. My family (2 young children) absolutely adored staying at La Maison de Marc within the beautiful estate of la Chartreuse de Maine.
Catherine & Maxence are such welcoming hosts and yet they left us to come and go as we pleased - a good balance!
The restoration of the buildings is impressive and we couldn't help but notice the lovely finishing touches and attention to detail within the Maison de Marc. You really have everything you need in this home and plenty of space for our family of 4.
The swimming pool & deck in the grounds are lovely and views from the pool are stunning.
The animals in the grounds provided an ideal focus for our young girls, who adored visiting Rothschild & Zebulon - skipping there each morning and evening. My husband was very content with the barbecue and all cooking facilities provided. I could not have been happier unwinding in these beautiful surroundings.
I already knew the Dordogne a little and was not disappointed with what is has to offer. A truly beautiful region in France :) Cubjac is a charming little village - the tabac cafe is really friendly for a cup of coffee and a chat with locals.... and the little stretch of sand "the beach" is perfect for the children to have a play.

Thank you to our lovely hosts - we will absolutely return in future and will not hesitate to recommend your accommodation to friends & family.

“A perfect rural retreat for all ages”
Reviewed July 26, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Our week in July at La Maison de Marc au Maine was our first holiday to France and the Dordogne with our 3 year old twin girls. When we arrived after our two day trip down in the car from the UK it was not long before we knew we had found a holiday destination that would be deserving of return in future years.

Catherine and Maxence have a beautiful estate for you to enjoy, with private rustic gardens with BBQs, a swimming pool and sundeck to share with the other 2 properties and private woodland to explore if you need to cool down from the heat. The estate even has a pigeonnire which my daughter was convinced was where Rapunzel was living :-)

Whist we did venture out of the Le Maine on some days (to Sarlat, Perigueux) it was such a lure & pleasure for all of us to stay put and enjoy Le Maine and the local village of Cubjac 10 mins walk from the property. If you want to forget the hussle and bustle of work and everyday living and keep the children entertained this is perfect! Do bring an iPad if you need indoor entertainment.... WiFi is present if you can't survive offline.

Catherine & Maxence have created a perfect place to unwind for all ages. As hosts they are exceptional, they have a wealth of local knowledge and are always there discretely to check everything is perfect for their guests. Unequivocally we will be returning in future years to our new friends in the Dordogne.

“A wonderful peaceful trip”
Reviewed June 22, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Spent a week here in June. Catherine and Maxence could not have been more welcoming or generous whilst allowing us the privacy we needed for this break. A welcome pack of wine cheese water and milk was provided allowing us time to go shopping to provide for ourselves. Maxence suggested various places to visit and to enjoy the cusine of the area even lending us a map for the purpose.
The gite itself was perfect for our needs, the furnishings and fittings being first class - in fact everything was perfect and we have no hesitation in recommending to anyone and will certainly consider another visit ourselves.

“Tranquility at its best”
Reviewed June 22, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We stayed at La Maison de Marc au Maine in june for 1 week, We arrived to such an amazing place. My toddler spent everyday by the pool, as we watched the farmer make the hay, watched the sun settting and just found paradise. Le maison was very well equipped with everything you needed for your stay. Maxence and Catherine were most helpful and gave us all a lovely warm welcome and good bye. I would truly recommend anyone to stay here especially if you like to relax with just the sound of the countryside around you.

“Peaceful, tastefully furnished, comfortable and much to explore”
Reviewed June 2, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Catherine and Maxence have created a beautiful holiday home in a perfect setting. We were expecting to have a nice base from which to explore the Dordogne and we certainly got that ...and also we had the chance to stay in the most wonderful setting. The house and grounds are just magical with the gardens and woodlands teeming with flora and fauna. We walked in the woods most evenings seeing so much wildlife and enjoying the peace. During the day we bird watched and gazed in awe at the wild flower meadows packed with orchids with clouds of butterflies all around. Our generous hosts provided us with great recommendations for places to visit and walks in the local area. The morning walks to the bakery (just 5 mins) were another chance to appreciate the perfect setting. The Friday morning market supplied us with most of the things we needed.Next time we plan to park up the car and just stay local - everything you need is right there!
