“Such a fabulous place”
Reviewed April 29, 2016 for a stay in April 2016

This is our second stay, it delighted us first time around and I'm pleased to say it really has not lost its charm. It is a beautiful location, this time we made more of the the facilities in the barn, especially the large open log fire in the evenings, with locally bought extremely good red wine, heaven. There is a good choice of restaurants but this time we tried utilising the supermarket which stocked an excellent selection of food, so we ate mainly in the barn which didn't seem like hard work- all in all if you are looking for a a holiday location where you can really relax and unwide then we would recommend La Cuisine d'Alice au Maine.

Thank you so much, Susan, for this “fabulous place”!
We are more than happy you enjoyed your second visit in Spring so much, as much as in Summer when you first stayed. At La Chartreuse du Maine, all seasons are equally delightful to unwind in one of our three holiday homes, visit the Dordogne area and enjoy “Perigordine Joie de Vivre!”
We look forward to welcoming you again soon, we miss our chats…

“Incredible!”
Reviewed February 8, 2016 for a stay in February 2016

After spending my 20th birthday at this beautiful cottage last year, I just had to go back and spend my 21st, and am most definitely looking forward to many more birthdays spent here!

Absolutely stunning cottage. Very French, but up-to-date and modern. Local shopkeepers extremely friendly including the bakery and the grocery. Pet cats very fussy and loveable!

Catherine and Maxence have created something special with this cottage and the others at this estate, and to top it off provide outstanding service before, during and after your stay. Very friendly, generous and kind! Maxence was lovely enough to take us along to Perigueux and show us the markets!

I feel more than lucky to have found this perfect cottage and now want to introduce this beautiful residence to family and friends.

Honestly, no faults found. Perfect, peaceful break-away.

“Stunning and stylishly decorated in a beautiful location.”
Reviewed September 13, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

A car is required but location is so central to explore the local countryside and further a field. Stylish accommodation with everything you could possibly want for an enjoyable holiday. Award winning bakery an absolute must to try in the village and small shop provides the essentials. Larger supermarket 20 mins away with a very wide variety of food and drink. The owners are only too happy to recommend good restaurants locally that provide locally sourced produce and are excellent value and of a good standard.
Exceeded our expectations, will definitely be returning.

“A beautiful and peaceful home”
Reviewed August 27, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We have now stayed twice in La Cuisine d'Alice au Maine, part of La Chartreuse du Maine, and on both occasions could not have had a more enjoyable time in this beautiful and peaceful home. Catherine and Maxence could not have been kinder or more welcoming and we would recommend La Chartreuse du Maine without hestitation to any of our friends.

“A Perfect French Idyll”
Reviewed June 28, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We have just had a lovely restful week's holiday at 'La Cuisine D'Alice' au Maine. The June weather was perfect. The accommodation was excellent and beautifully decorated with all amenities provided. The self catering facilities are of an exceptionally high standard.

Our hosts, Catherine and Maxence are lovely people who made us most welcome. We had the use of all the grounds, including the swimming pool. The estate is beautiful and tranquil and we were made to feel at home from the very beginning. Catherine and Maxence were very informative about the area, and Maxence provided a marked-up map of interesting places to visit. Nothing was too much trouble for them.

There are so many lovely towns and villages to visit in the area and there was plenty to see and do, including visiting the local markets. The local people are very friendly.

We would definitely go back to 'La Cuisine D'Alice' without a moment's hesitation.

A great big thank you to Catherine and Maxence for giving us the opportunity to stay at their beautiful estate.

“Outstanding”
Reviewed November 17, 2014 for a stay in November 2014

We had the most amazing two weeks in this cottage.
The bed was like sleeping on a cloud.
The living space was totally romantic for the two of us and the kitchen was perfect for cooking up our market ingredients.
Catherine and Maxence were very welcoming as were the other two hosts Zebulon and Rothschild-the resident donkey and sheep.
As hard as we tried we could not find a perfect France than the one in this cottage.
5+ stars.

“We chose well, absolutely no "except for"!”
Reviewed November 12, 2014 for a stay in October 2014

Thank you to Catherine and Maxence! Their attention to detail and comfort is so obvious and they care so much that your visit is what you are looking for. Can you believe Maxence went to Périgeux to get fresh chervil for our cooking lesson when we could not find it at the local markets? Catherine ensured we had all the right cooking tools!

My husband and I had a very special week at La Cuisine d'Alice au Maine due to the property, the vacation cottage, the hosts, the sites in the Dordogne, and a special cooking lesson with Jean-François. Zébulon, the donkey, and Rothchild, the sheep, were just as welcoming!

I was also right out of a French immersion class and I felt so comfortable slipping in and out of French for the words I knew with them! Without realizing it, they inspired me to keep on learning!
