La Cuisine d'Alice is a gracious one-bedroom house on the grounds of the French country estate known as La Chartreuse du Maine, and is one of three vacation homes located on the property, around the courtyard. Le Maine is situated in the peaceful countryside, at the edge of the small village of Cubjac, just five minutes walk from the local shops and weekly farmers' market. The estate encompasses 63 acres of gardens, meadows and wooded paths. In the middle of a meadow filled with wild flowers, the swimming pool is an ideal spot to relax.

Le Maine is situated in the peaceful countryside, at the edge of the small village of Cubjac, just five minutes walk from the local shops and weekly farmers' market. The estate encompasses 63 acres of gardens, meadows and wooded paths. In the middle of a meadow filled with wild flowers, the swimming pool is an ideal spot to relax. The unique situation of La Chartreuse du Maine in the centre of the Dordogne region makes it the perfect base to explore the many châteaux, villages, prehistoric caves, markets and wine yards of the area. Newly restored in the most pure Périgord tradition, this very spacious home has kept, in addition to impressive vaulted ceilings and exposed beams, its carved stone sink and its large original fireplace. From the garden, a few steps take you into inside the house. The beautiful limestone walls, the softly colored limewash tones, and the natural materials make for a unique and inviting atmosphere. In winter, the heated floor warms the room and makes it cozy. La Cuisine d'Alice boasts an open-plan layout. In the main living space, there is a sitting room with comfortable leather sofa and armchair in front of the fireplace, and a dining area to enjoy your meals. The modern kitchen is complete with high-end appliances. The bedroom is a few steps up from the living space. The openness of this room allows you to see the fireplace from the bed, making it the most romantic getaway for couples. All bed and bedding and linens are new and of the highest quality. The ensuite bathroom has a heated towel rack so you can enjoy warm towels after your shower or bath. The living space has windows overlooking the private garden, where dining furniture and lounge chairs invite you to sit in the sun or spend wonderful evenings al fresco. We, Catherine and Maxence, live permanently on site and are more than happy to welcome you to La Chartreuse du Maine, our family home for four generations. 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. 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 La Chartreuse du 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 of this traditional corner of the Périgord is 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 small villa...
