The unique situation of Le Maine in the centre of the Dordogne region makes it the perfect base to explore the many châteaux, villages, prehistoric caves, markets and wine yards of the area. Recently restored in the Périgord purest tradition, this south-facing farmhouse has kept all its original features, including exposed beams, honey colored limestone walls and stone fireplace, which highlight its charm and authenticity. 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. More

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.
Getting around
We are located in the countryside. To see the many sights of interest our wonderful region has to offer, a car is necessary.
