We stayed with Cherie and Brian for four nights in late May 2012, what a treat! Our room was glorious, very spacious with a wonderful huge super comfortable bed and a well appointed ensuite. Exploring the Dordogne region was made so easy with the assistance and knowledge of Cherie and Brian. Breakfast on the balcony overlooking the region was also truly memorable. We would definitely recommend staying here. Many thanks again for making our stay such fun.

My sister and brother-in-law wondered if we might travel to 'somewhere in France' whilst visiting from Australia. I had been to the Dordogne a number of times and decided to find a B & B near Bergerac and as soon as I came across Maison Porte del Marty in La Linde I decided this was a great location for exploring the area and the images on the website encouraged me to book. A very good decision as it turned out - Cheri and Brian were terrific hosts and made us feel incredibly welcome. The house is simply stunning. All of the bedrooms are huge, very comfortable and have fabulous views of the river that flows past the house. If you want to explore this area, this is most definitely the place to stay. I will recommending Maison Porte del Marty to all of my friends. Judy C

What a beautiful place this is. The bedrooms are gorgeous. Crisp freshly ironed Egyptian cotton sheets, super king sized beds with pillows like clouds under your weary head. The best beds in the Dordogne region are all in large rooms with nicely appointed bathrooms. It was great to be able to leave my French windows open day and night and to be able to gaze out to the Dordogne river. If your lucky you'll be treated to swans flying past.

Being able to enjoy breakfast, afternoon drinks and dinner on the terrace overlooking the river was so relaxing. Cheri's breakfasts are tailored to your wishes. The freshly baked Croissants from across the road were the best I had in 2 months and Cheri makes sure they are served warm.

Brian and Cheri were fabulous hosts. So warm and generous and nothing was too much trouble. I continued to learn so much about French history and culture. They both provided excellent advice on places to eat, villages to visit and what to see. Even if you need a haircut, you won't be disappointed with Cheri's recommendation.

I spent 9 nights in Lalinde. It's a great base for the Dordogne and surrounding vineyards. The village is medium sized for the area. Lalinde may not feature in to many mainstream guide books, yet I would highly recommend you add it to your itinerary for a fantastic French village experience.

I was so fortunate to stumble upon Brian and Cheri's B and B and it was the perfect finish to a 2 month holiday.

Room Tip: All rooms are very good

Five star accommodation - wonderful bed, spacious bedroom, beautifully decorated and a great shower. A fabulous location for exploring the Dordongne. The property is amazing and still has lots of exciting opportunities to develop it further. Cheri was a fantastic hostess (Brian was away in NZ). Nothing was too much trouble, excellent advice on villages to visit, wines and food to buy. Thanks also for the helpful tip for keeping us driving on the right side of the road! Our experience at Maison Porte del Marty was a superb start to our holiday in France. We would love to return one day – 4 days just wasn’t enough.

Room Tip: We stayed in La Chambre Chateau room overlooking the river - other rooms share the view.

We stayed with hosts Brian & Cheri in October 2011. Our room was large and beautifully presented with a lovely view of the river. The bed was the most comfortable of our whole trip and the ensuite shower was to die for. The patio overlooking the river was the best place to finish the day with a glass of wine and confirm you are truly on holiday. Lalinde is situated within easy drive of lots of historical attractions, towns, wineries & outdoor activities, there is something for everyone. If you need a lazy day, Lalinde itself is easy to walk around and provides plenty of restaurants and a local square to sit and watch the world go buy. Brian & Cheri have lots of local knowledge and their recommendations were excellent. They have an easy welcoming style and you feel part of the family straight away. The history of the house itself is very interesting and we were in awe of the restoration work they have undertaken (& are still continuing) with such fabulous results. We will definitely be back.

Recently opened. We enjoyed a fabulous trip to the Dordogne region, staying at Maison Porte del Marty.The highlight, staying in this gorgeous home right on the river with friendly hosts, Brian & Cheri. They couldn't have been more welcoming and extremely helpful,
offering great advice on what to see and where to go.
Brian and Cheri's home is simply amazing, fastidiously renovated,location superb, right in the heart of Lalinde with stunning views over the river from almost every room.
Our spacious bedroom, the pink room, with it's near new ensuite and huge comfortable bed, plus large window overlooking the river was the best we've stayed in, maximum comfort and "Room with a View"
Lalinde is a charming village with a Thursday local market-centrally located, an ideal hopping off spot to explore this beautiful area.
Great choice of local cafes and restaurants just a few moments stroll from the house.
We found the large deck with wide river views, the perfect spot to sit and relax with a glass of local wine after a busy day exploring...Blissful!
