Maison de Marquay is truly a hidden jewel.
This petit maison d'hotes (small inn) with 5 rooms is centrally located in a small village in the Dordogne approximately 10 minutes from Sarlat . It's location is ideal for visiting all the fabulous sites in the Dordogne e.g. Lascaux and other caves, beautiful villages like Beynac, Domme, Castelnaud, etc. and all the fabulous bastide villages in the valleys of Dordogne abd Lot Rivers. It's also ideal for Dordogne river canoeing, biking and outdoor walking/hiking. The Maison itself is an antique village home which has been beautifully renovated and decorated by it's current owners, Marie-Laure and Gerard Lerchundi. We stayed in one of their larger rooms, which consisted of 2 rooms - a small living room decorated with some antique pieces beautifully mixed with more comtemporary pieces. The bed was very comfortable and the linens of highest quality. Foods was exceptional. Breakfast started with freshly squeezed juice, wonderful fruit, choice of coffee, excellent selection of croissants and breads, home made yogurts, eggs and other breakfast items. Gerad is a gourmet cook. Our dinners were fabulous. Gerard went out of his way of cooking the very best meats, fish and vegetables found in the Dordogne. In our travels, we've eaten in some of the best restaurants around the world, and Gerard's cooking was comparable if not better - whether it be appetizers, main courses or desserts. The wine selection was small but excellent. The table settings were beautiful, with nice china, silverware and simple but lovely white antique tablecloths/napkins.
Everything at Maison de Marquay is professionally and beautifully done. Marie- Laure and Gerard are friendly, helpful, and go out of their way to make their guests comfortable. We highly recommend it to anyone who would like to visit the Dordogne and stay in a small inn, with personalized care and gourmet food.
