“A beautiful hideaway in a romantic countryside”
Reviewed 29 May 2013 for a stay in May 2013

Le Maine is a romantic estate at the edge of the little village Cubjac. "Maison de Marc" is one the three apartments, which are all beautifully decorated with many nice details. The apartment is very comfortable and very well equipped. If you had a dream of a luxurious stay in a former French farmhouse, here's the place to make it come true.

“A match made in beauty heaven”
Reviewed 20 December 2012 for a stay in November 2012

person found this review helpful

Saturday night November 3rd (2012) fell dark and stormy as we arrived at La Maine residence. Having travelled from Paris a bit weary and worn we were greeted by the lovely owners Catherine and Maxence who introduced us “la Maison de Marc” an exquisite, warm, ultra cosy house where we were to spend a decadent week.
The following morning we woke to witness the beauty of our surroundings and set about exploring (in our pyjamas) their grounds, their forest (accessible through a magic doorway in the garden) and their wonderful fields, all infused with Autumns’s mellow fruitfulness.
Catherine and Maxence’s thoughtful, masterminding “conseils” had us trundling through the outstanding campagne visiting local markets abundant with best quality local produce and cultural visits which were carefully chosen (Ruffignac caves (a treasure) Roch St Christophe (a visit chez our ancestors) and Chateau Beynac (top) were our favorites.
Lastly, we acknowledge the two 4 legged stars here who we remember vividly (and with which my sons especially the youngest enjoyed a deep deep compatibility) Rothschild and Zebulon. We miss you !.
All kinds of MAGIC happens here in La Maine if you are lucky enough to discover…..

“Le Maine”
Reviewed 28 November 2012 for a stay in October 2012

My Husband and I spent 8 nights at this quintessential piece of french countryside paradise. The apartment was charming with a fireplace for added ambience. Each room was spacious and thoughtfully planned. Some of the vrbos we stayed in during our 3 month european adventure did not live up to the photos and description, however Le Maine exceeded them. Catherine et Maxence were wonderful hosts! Maxence helped us many times when we asked about getting to and from various sites in the area and Catherine set up a fantastic cooking course with a wonderful chef right there in our apartment. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend this property and truly enjoy the "art de vivre"!

“Best place in Dordogne!”
Reviewed 4 November 2012 for a stay in August 2012

This was my second visit with my family and another exceptional holiday. What a place! First of all I would like to say a massive thank you to Maxence and Cathrine for being so welcoming. If you want to relax and enjoy being outside then this is the perfect place,the scenery on the estate and the gardens is beautiful. It is about a ten minute walk to the boulangerie or butchers and local cafe/bar. At the cottage there are bikes to use, a lovely pool and table tennis. As a family we all loved to see the animals, Zebulon the donkey, Rothschild the sheep, Bibi the cat and the new little kitten Josephine. We loved the way in the morning you can hear Zebulon braying,its a lovely sound! We will be returning and are missing it deeply. This place is great to recomend to anybody who wants to relax and unwind. I would rate this 5 star as it the best place in Perigeaux!

“This is paradise!”
Reviewed 15 October 2012 for a stay in September 2012

Are you looking for lots of possible activiteis and yet peace and quiet, a beautiful place to stay, not only inside the house, but also the domain and the surroundings? This is the place to go!
Very authentic, very relaxing. You wil feel instantly at home. The proprietors are the angels making this possible. They also have a superb sense for privacy and if you like they will offer you a great range range of things interesting for you to visit or do while staying there. For children and I suppose most adults too, the pool, the sheep, the donkey and the cat in the gardens are so enjoyable. If you like you can also cycle in the environment. In one word: Paradise. What are you waiting for?

“Its oh so quiet.....”
Reviewed 8 September 2012 for a stay in August 2012

This was our second stay having stayed for a week in 2011, this year was 2 weeks and we had the best holiday. Le Maine will give you peace, calm and quiet in the most beautiful landscape. The garden of the Maison is surrounded by trees, you can sit and watch the donkey, the bats of an evening, use the bbq and enjoy nothing but the sound of the breeze in the trees. The weather was hot and we ate outdoors for most meals. The estate is meadows and grass and woodland, the pool is set away from the house and our children loved playing in it (age 11 and 13). There are bikes to use and table tennis, a cat and kitten and sheep to play with and feed. The Maison is very well equipped and very clean decorated in 'french chic' style, if you are used to modern it takes a while to adjust to your environment but after a few days away from the busyness of the UK you really 'get it' its just so lovely! The village, with a river running through it has a baker, butcher and cafe/bar and a weekly market which we loved pottering around, our son got on his bike every morning to get fresh croissants, its a very safe place. Maxence and Catherine are the perfect welcoming hosts, there if you want advice or help but not there if you want to be left alone, they pitch it just right. There are plenty of places to visit and the countryside around the area is stunning we visited several chateaux and kayaked. But for us we loved the time we had in Le Maine and were very reluctant to leave.

“splendid Holidays”
Reviewed 10 April 2012 for a stay in June 2011

This was our second time at La Maison de Marc in Le Maine. We stayed 2 weeks in a row and really enjoyed each and every single day. We loved to sit in the wonderful, completely privat backyard for breakfast, jumped into the pool during daytime and sat in front of the house in the afternoon to finish off the evening with a nice glas of wine. The entire house is beautifully furnished with a big fireplace in the living room, two cosy bedrooms, a very well stuffed kitchen and a lovely bath with separate toilet. La Maison at Le Maine is just perfect to relax and a good starting point for trips to countless picturesque villages, lovely markets, prehistoric places, canoeing on rivers, bikeriding..... The hosts Caherine and Maxence made us feel at home immediately and when asked always provided us with lots of helpful information for a perfect holday. Thank you! We will definitely come back!
