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 the countryside at the edge of the tiny village of Cubjac.

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...
