stephmodo: La Maisonnette Winter/Spring Special

La Maisonnette Winter/Spring Special

• 13 January 2010

Can I tempt you with a end of Winter/beginning of Spring getaway?! We decided to reduce the rental rates at La Maisonnette for just two months (from now until the end of March). We are booked through the Summer, but have some availability during the next couple of months, and thought it would be nice to make enjoying Beynac and the rest of the French countryside more affordable. In February you will catch the tail end of truffle season (our most recent guests had a lovely time picking up truffles at the local market and then coming home and cooking them on this pretty stove) and in March you'll catch spring in the Dordogne (all of these images were taken by Scott in 03/09). Either way it's a beautiful place to spend a cozy vacation sans tourists and crowds. Plus, fares are cheaper now than they'll be for 8-9 months! Added bonus: readers will receive an extra 50€ off if you mention you came from my blog.

Also, it turns out that our favorite tour guide, Rick Steves, loves Beynac too. If you watch this video, you'll catch a glimpse of La Maisonnette about 3:54 into the clip. You'll see the castle right next door to the cottage and some seriously amazing views of the village and surrounding valley.

For those of you just tuning in, you can view all the posts about the French renovation right here.

  1. Aaaah, this sounds lovely.
    If only my husband didn't have so much WORK....
    It will remain a fantasy/future plan for now.
    Thanks for the invitation. It looks beautiful there.

  2. I'm going to pass this on to a friend who has talked about going to France this spring. As for me and my family, I can't wait to visit someday soon (I hope)!

  3. I can't believe I'm coming up on a year since we went last spring! It was a lovely time of year- the weather was great and there definitely were few tourists. Let's go again!

  4. Breath taking! Oh I would love to visit your French dream place sometime....when my husband and I earn more money. Also your La Maisonnette is stunning!

  5. We are looking to head to France end of March for several months....too bad we can't go now.

  6. Nothing like good PR & Mktg Steph - it looks fabulous!

  7. looks beautiful!

    may I ask you to upload the video on vimeo or youtube, it's just because hulu is not available for no-USA residents, so in Spain I cannot view the video.


  8. Laia, my husband found this link but keep in mind that it's not quite the same. It's the best he could find!

  9. Oh Man If I was not having this baby .... I would be there! I have talked about your wonderful French HOME many times with my husband! I am dreaming one day that we will get to go! I have followed the renovation.... It is amazing!

  10. Hey Stephanie, do you still have openings? We may be able to do it!...Would you have any possibilities from the 1-5th March, maybe, possibly? Still have to check with Paul, but we maybe could...

    Sending hugs and thankx!! Great posts, thanks!!!


Thanks so much for taking the time to drop a line. I really appreciate it!
