Holiday Rental House
Chez Colette et Mimi is the converted barn of La Chartreuse du Maine, and the largest of the three vacation homes situated around the chateau. We, Catherine and Maxence, live permanently on site and are more than happy to welcome you to Le Maine, our family home for four generations. With us discover another Dordogne than the one on the holiday brochures. Our passion and local knowledge will allow you an intimate, authentic and unforgettable taste of the real Périgord. The spacious South-East facing terrace of 'Chez Colette et Mimi' has a table and chairs, inviting lazy breakfasts in the sun and evening gatherings around a bottle of Bordeaux. The terrace overlooks the house's private garden with its sweeping view of the hills and forests opposite. Once inside, the contemporary interior ...Chez Colette et Mimi is the converted barn of La Chartreuse du Maine, and the largest of the three vacation homes situated around the chateau. We, Catherine and Maxence, live permanently on site and are more than happy to welcome you to Le Maine, our family home for four generations. With us discover another Dordogne than the one on the holiday brochures. Our passion and local knowledge will allow you an intimate, authentic and unforgettable taste of the real Périgord. The spacious South-East facing terrace of 'Chez Colette et Mimi' has a table and chairs, inviting lazy breakfasts in the sun and evening gatherings around a bottle of Bordeaux. The terrace overlooks the house's private garden with its sweeping view of the hills and forests opposite. Once inside, the contemporary interior design contrasts with the exposed stone walls and 300 year old carpentry, a juxtaposition which gives the house much of its abundant charm. Sophisticated modern furnishings enhance the honest simplicity of the ancient architecture, and touches of bold color highlight the exquisite patina of the walls, faded by the centuries. Downstairs the master bedroom is painted with soothing lime wash in pale tones. The windows of both the bedroom and ensuite bathroom with its claw-foot bathtub/shower open onto the interior courtyard of the Chartreuse. Upstairs, the large bedroom and modern shower room have vaulted ceilings and impressive original beam-work. The King-size bed can be separated into twin singles on request. The two ensuite master bedrooms, one downstairs and one upstairs, give each other total privacy, making Chez Colette et Mimi ideal for groups of 2 couples traveling together or families with teenagers. Then you will appreciate relaxing together around the open fireplace in the spacious sitting room, gathering in the comfortably furnished dining room, and preparing gourmet Périgordine meals in the sophisticated Burgundy kitchen.

About the neighbourhood
La Chartreuse du 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.

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.L Maine is located at the edge of the village of Cubjac a short walk away from the center which features a picturesque stone bridge and old houses. Here you will find a bakery pharmacy. T...
