Holiday Rental House /
2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 4
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.

We returned to Le Maine following our holiday in 2014 - and we were not disappointed! Catherine and Maxence greeted us like old friends and the gite was still as impeccable as we remembered - it felt like home from home. The furnishings and kitchen appliances and equipment are truly outstanding- the finish is of a very high standard -... more

We had a wonderful stay at La Maine and Catherine and Maxence were so very friendly and helpful with places to visit and directions, restaurant recommendations etc. The house is beautifully designed and decorated and everything is of a very high quality. It was so nice to have the welcome pack of walnut bread, goats cheese, wine and strawberries. There... more

This is the best experience we've ever had of renting in France! Maxence & Catherine were the perfect hosts. They made a point of greeting us warmly - and of saying goodbye when, sadly, we had to leave! The explanation of the accommodation was excellent and we appreciated the welcome gifts very much. The accommodation was perfect in every way... more
