We arrived with excitement and some trepidation. We know this area very well having been >5 times previously, but have sometimes found the houses to be overlooked or lacking privacy. No concerns here.
The house was a wonderful converted 2-300 year old barn, with loads of space and complete privacy. Full of character features and wonderful views of the Dropt valley. the pool was outstanding and the outside space huge, with plenty of sunny & shaded areas. Inside was cool and comfortable with well appointed kitchen.
Wonderful peace & quiet with woods & fields adjacent. The night time sky when clear was amazing.
Couldn't ask for more, will be back.
The cottage is very well equiped. Pool is clean and large and has a high fence, which gives a very private feeling. There are many interesting places to visit at short distance, so your stay can be both relaxing at the pool as cultural.
Spacious gite with everything needed for a comfortable stay. Great location, close to bastide towns of Duras and Eymet. Large private garden and pool area that's not overlooked. We'd definitely recommend for families as a good base for exploring the region.
We have just returned from a fabulous 2 weeks at Le Maubec. The weather was very hot (mid-high 30's) for the first 10 days of our stay, so we made full use of the 10x5m pool.
The house is very well equipped with plenty of room for six people (there was just 2 of us). The master bedroom upstairs was lovely, but we decided to sleep in the downstairs double as it was cooler.
If you can drag yourself away from the pool, Eymet is a great little town to go for a wander and get coffee or lunch. There is also a fairly well stocked little Carrefour Contact supermarket there (approx 15 mins drive). A day trip to Bordeaux is a must (approx 90 mins drive), and we would also recommend visiting Arcachon on the coast.
We would definitely consider a return trip to Le Maubec!
We have just returned from a wonderful weeks stay at Le Maubec.
The house is great with everything you could possibly need for a successful holiday. We had marvellous weather and the large, very clean swimming pool was a real godsend!!
I can thoroughly recommend Le Maubec to anyone looking for a holiday in the area,
So many things to recommend this marvellous find. A lovely Gite with bags of character, comfortable beds and sitting room, spacious bathrooms, every utensil and kitchen implement you can think of and lots of lovely individual touches and possessions which made you feel like you were staying at a friends house.
The outside of the Gite was perfect with two dining areas, one with gorgeous evening twinkling lights, bags of space to set up a badminton net and croquet, a swimming pool to die for (bigger than most rental properties I would have thought) and a great outdoor barbeque.
If I had to make any criticism, it would be the sun loungers were a little uncomfortable for lying on for too long a time but that is only a tiny thing and can be rectified with lots of towels as the Gite also provide thin mats to put on these.
All linen was beautifully laundered and the towels were all large and fluffy, even the outdoor pool towels +++. A fab utility room at the back of the property where again, everything was provided. Lots and lots to do, see and visit in this area from Chateaus to lots of local markets and local 'food nights'.
The owners were exceptionally helpful with directions and any queries that arose during the holiday. All in all, a real gem and good value for money.
