    Wow! What an amazing place to stay in the beautiful country side. The cottage we stayed in was out of a fairytale, as were the ample grounds available for walking and enjoying nature. We stayed for a week in the Spring and enjoyed the plenty of farmers markets, historical caves, architecture and charming villages. With a wonderfully equipped kitchen, we prepared lovely meals to eat in the private garden or by the fire when raining. It was an absolute dream! Catherine and Maxence were amazing hosts and we can’t wait to return to Du Maine!

    We really enjoyed our stay with our family. The accommodation is lovingly maintained and was ideal for us. The cottage is on a well-kept estate and we were allowed to stroll through and explore the whole garden. The neighbouring forest and the pool are wonderful and invite you to linger. The hosts are very obliging and helpful.

    "Do you have this desire within you to fully feel how beautiful life is? You are ready to wake up with happiness! So, bring all your aspirations here, and let the magic happen…" This quote on La Chartreuse du Maine’s website says it all! A stay at the lovely gîtes of Catherine and Maxence’s family estate is like magic. We did not want to leave and we can’t wait to return! The many kindnesses of our hosts, Catherine and Maxence led the way for a nourishing, relaxing holiday in the beauty they have created in du Maine. During our 10-day stay, we settled into life in country France. The accommodations were superb, both homey and refined, including some antique treasures from their travels. We enjoyed graceful mornings and some evening meals cooked at home in their well-equipped kitchen. Sleeping on freshly ironed sheets in the comfortable beds was a delight and we enjoyed waking to the sound of birdsong. The village of Cubjac is centrally located with delicious local restaurants, a boulangère, farmer’s market and beautiful drives through the countryside to many interesting sites. Maxence offered us maps, brochures and a list of recommended destinations that supported our explorations of the Périgord region. So much to see, balanced with resting on the lounge chairs reading and napping. The care of the property with its lush, green gardens, surrounding forest and lovely cottages is exemplary of the commitment and love Catherine and Maxence have devoted themselves to for 25 years at Du Maine. If you are fortunate enough to find La Chartreuse, as we were, you will experience “La douceur de vivre en Périgord” “The sweetness of life in Périgord, France!” Holly, Jeanine, Bob
