La Chartreuse du Maine and our passion for the genuine beauty of the Dordogne will make your stay a truly memorable Perigordine experience. Constructed during the reign of King Louis XIV, Le Maine is an 18th-century Chartreuse set in a beautiful countryside at the edge of the authentic village of Cubjac. At Le Maine, in harmony with nature, everything breathes peace, serenity, and happiness of life, you will enjoy simple 'art de vivre' in a confidential property run by locals! The estate is situated in an estate of abundance and generosity : 63 acres of gardens, terraces, meadows, and woods with plenty of walking trails to explore the surrounding nature. Within 5 minutes walk you will find local shops, a café and even a weekly market in the village. The swimming pool is in the middle of a meadow filled with wild flowers and offers magnificent views of the hills in the distance. The openness of the area allows the pool deck to benefit from sunlight from dawn to dusk making it an ideal spot to relax. In this romantic setting the manor house and holiday homes frame the large landscaped courtyard. Each house benefits from complete independence, and has its own private garden with furniture to enjoy a coffee, a meal, or a quiet moment with good book. If you can tear yourself away from Le Maine, its unique location in the centre of the Dordogne region makes it the ideal base for getting to know all the area has to offer the visitor. More

About the neighbourhood
Le Maine benefits from its unique location in the center of the Dordogne region, close to Sarlat and any major attraction the area has to offer, whilst being in the peaceful countryside, away from the crowds, a little off the beaten track. Guests really appreciate coming back to the peace and quiet of Le Maine after a day's visit around Brantome, Sarlat and along the Dordogne Valley. After the buzz and activity of the major sites, the tranquillity and authenticity of this corner of the Périgord are invaluable. From Le Maine you can walk or go bike riding amidst the surrounding countryside and villages. The Auvézère river, which runs through Cubjac, is perfect for canoe rides. Nearby, children will love tree walking and aqua parks. Le Maine is located at the edge of the tiny village of Cub...
Getting around
We are located in the countryside. To see the many sights of interest our wonderful region has to offer, a car is necessary.
