My wife and I spent our honeymoon here in July 2016, and enjoyed nine days of absolutely perfection. The accommodation is beautiful: the perfect mixture of rustic charm, well-equipped living and homeliness - all set in a wonderful rural village. Our hosts were simply magnificent. Nothing was too much trouble, advice was always on offer, they were friendly and accommodating...

What a fantastic place to visit. I went here for our honeymoon and it was everything I had hoped for and more. The cottage itself was delightful, beautifully decorated and had everything you needed for a comfortable stay. It had its own private garden where you could sun bathe, eat and have BBQs. The pool was a short walk away...

The beautifully restored farmhouse at Le Maine was an excellent home base to explore the "jaw dropping" beautiful surrounding areas biking, hiking and canoeing on the nearby Dordogne River. We appreciated the hospitality and warmth of our hosts.

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'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.<BR><BR>Le Maine is located at the e... more
