The interior design was conceived to offer you a warm and refined comfort down to the smallest details. You can also enjoy delightful dinners al fresco in the private garden. La Maison de Marc accommodates 4 people, with one double and one twin bedroom all on the ground floor. This farmhouse is ideal for families with teenagers or young children and people with disabilities. We, Catherine and Maxence, live permanently on site and are more than happy to welcome you to La Chartreuse du Maine, our family home for four generations. Discover another Dordogne than the one on the holiday brochures. Our passion and local knowledge will allow you an intimate, authentic and unforgettable taste of the real Périgord.

Perfect peaceful retreat
We spent 6 days in La Maison de Marc at La Chartreuse a beautifully renovated farmhouse, tastefully decorated and furnished throughout, very well equipped with everything you would need for your holiday. The farmhouse is set in beautiful grounds and with access to a wonderful pool. If you are looking for peace and tranquility La Chartreuse is the place for you. Catherine and Maxence are perfect, charming and helpful hosts. We will definitely be visiting La Chartreuse again soon. Anne and Russell Bolton

Perfect stay!
What a very pleasant stay! We really enjoyed the charming house (La Maison de Marc) with private garden and very nice surroundings with the lovely donkey, dog and cat. The swimmingpool was also great. Our 2 children (4 and 6 years old) had a great time. It is really a place to relax and unwind! Catherine and Maxence did everything to make our visit comfortable and safe (during COVID-19) and they are so friendly. Thank you very much, we will definitely come back! Michiel, Myrte and our 2 daughters.

Peaceful green retreat
What a beautiful place! The Chartreuse is a wonderful, quiet property and a perfect place to rest and relax. The Maison de Marc was very well appointed and served all of our needs. Unusually for a vacation home, the kitchen was also nicely equipped. Our private garden was magical, the pool beautiful, and the gardens and surrounding forests fun to explore, including with kids. Catherine and Maxence were wonderful hosts, going out of their way to make sure we were comfortable, including during an intense heat wave. The surroundings are low-key and bucolic, well off the beaten tourist track.

Ferienidyll im Périgord
Da es uns 2017 im Périgord so gut gefallen hat, waren wir dieses Jahr wieder (zum zweiten Mal) bei Catherine und Maxence in Le Maine zu Gast. Die Chartreuse du Maine ist sehr ruhig gleich am Ortseingang von Cubjac gelegen. Es gibt insgesamt 3 Ferienwohnungen/-häuser, die alle sehr individuell, geschmackvoll und stilsicher eingerichtet sind. Obwohl es sich um ein historisches Anwesen handelt, ist alles technisch auf dem neuesten Stand und die Ausstattung der Wohnung incl. Küche lässt keine Wünsche offen. Es ist wirklich alles so schön wie auf den Bildern der Homepage abgebildet. Direkt von Cubjac aus kann man schöne Wanderungen oder Fahrradtouren in die nähere Umgebung unternehmen. Bei Bedarf stellen Catherine und Maxence auch Fahrräder zur Verfügung. In der unmittelbaren Nähe befinden sich bereits einige Sehenswürdigkeiten, wie z.B. das Château de Hautefort oder die Höhle von Tourtoirac. Périgueux, die sehr sehenswerte Hauptstadt des Périgord, ist auch nur etwa 20 Minuten entfernt. Weitere Highlights des Périgord an der Dordogne sind in ca. einer Stunde gut zu erreichen (Sarlat, Lascaux, Castelnaud usw.). Wer kein großes Besichtigungsprogramm absolvieren möchte, kann sich auch einfach auf dem Gelände der Chartreuse wunderbar erholen. Für den Swimming-Pool war es Anfang Mai, als wir da waren, allerdings noch etwas zu kalt. Im Ort selbst ist insbesondere die handwerkliche Bäckerei absolut zu empfehlen. Neben verschiedenen Baguettes gibt es eine große Auswahl süßer Teile und Törtchen, so dass der Tag schon mit einem perfekten Frühstück beginnen kann. Catherine und Maxence sind sehr aufmerksame und kultivierte Gastgeber. Sie stehen jederzeit mit Rat und Tat zur Verfügung und haben auch für den bereits erfahrenen Périgord-Besucher noch jede Menge Tipps für Ausflüge, Sehenswürdigkeiten und empfehlenswerte Restaurants. Wir waren sicher nicht zum letzten Mal dort…

Very enjoyable stay in lovely grounds close to a charming village.
Lovely cottage situated in beautiful grounds and close to a charming village. All required amenities present together with well maintained pool and surrounding areas. Catherine and Mark very friendly and helpful and at hand when assistance required - e.g. maps and suggestions on where to visit. Thoroughly recommend the nearby truffle farm where we spent a lovely couple of hours one evening with Jean-Paul and Marie-Claude sampling truffle and more than one bottle of Bergerac red. We fell in love with Bibi the cat.

wonderful hosts
Sick of 5 star central city hotels, then this is the property for you. Compact 2 bedroom, shower over bath, nicely decorated barn conversion. We enjoyed the recommended local restaurants and were disappointed that they were often booked out. I suggest any guest asks the hosts to book in advance, you can always cancel. The swimming pool was very good, nice temperature and well maintained. For most of our 6 night stay we were the only guests, so that was pretty special. Nice surroundings, the Maison de Marc had a private grassed area outside the kitchen which was our preferred before dinner drinks location. Beware the cat will eat you out of house and home. The areas are small so don't expect tons of room, apart from the bathroom which was a good size. We had no complaints and would return , what fun to bring the whole family and friends and book out the whole property....there's a challenge!

Wonderful Haven
We spent 6 nights in this very delightful cottage. The accommodation is a barn conversion and is on the estate of a small chateau. During our stay France was in the middle of a heatwave but the cottage stayed nice and cool even though there was no air conditioning. The kitchen had a large fridge which was great for storing produce from the market in Perigueux. We had a private outdoor eating area where we ate all our meals and we made use of the large shared pool. The hosts, Catherine and Maxence were wonderful. All communication before our arrival were prompt. They provided us with a map on which they had highlighted all the worthwhile places to see in the Perigod area. All their recommendations were excellent. We look forward to making a return visit when we are back in Europe.

a very special place
Maison de Marc is a decorated country home with everything in it - you would like to move in and live there : fully equipped kitchen, living room with a fire place, 2 bed rooms, bath room with washer and dryer and a nice yard. The owners, Catherine and Max are very friendly and helpful. The village Cubjac is not interesting. Rouffignac cave is quite near. For other attractions - more than an hour's drive each direction.

Juste parfait !
La maison de Marc est superbe décorée avec beaucoup de goût et très bien équipée, on s'y sent de suite chez soi. Nous avons beaucoup apprécié les soirées au coin du feu ( tout est prévu, juste une allumette à gratter !). Le calme de la propriété est très agréable, le jardin est magnifiquement entretenu, nous n'avons pas pu profiter de la piscine (idéalement située) vu la saison mais nous avons apprécié les ballades dans le bois. Catherine et Maxence sont des hôtes très attentionnés, ils parlent avec passion de leur domaine et sont de très bons conseils pour visiter la région et déguster ses spécialités ( un échantillon nous attendait d'ailleurs dans la maison à notre arrivée ). En résumé, ce fut un sejour vraiment parfait et nous recommandons vivement cette adresse !

Map
About the neighborhood
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 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.
