Chez Colette et Mimi au Maine

Rental Home -
2 Bedrooms , 2 Bathrooms , Sleeps 4
Perigueux, Dordogne, Nouvelle-Aquitaine
Chez Colette et Mimi is the converted barn of La Chartreuse du Maine, and the largest of the three vacation homes situated around the chateau.

We, Catherine and Maxence, live permanently on site and are more than happy to welcome you to Le Maine, our family home for four generations. With us 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.

The spacious South-East facing terrace of 'Chez Colette et Mimi' has a table and chairs, inviting lazy breakfasts in the sun and evening gatherings around a bottle of Bordeaux. The terrace overlooks the house's private garden with its sweeping view of the hills and forests opposite.

Once inside, the contemporary interior design contrasts with the exposed ston...

About the neighborhood
La Chartreuse du 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 Le Maine after a day's 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.

Le Maine is located at the edge of the small v...
