Maison Madar is ideal for a quiet relaxing holiday with all the essential amenities 5 minutes drive from the property.
This 85m2 barn has been converted to provide generous living accommodation which is both comfortable and cozy. With an additional 70m2 terrace/porch looking out to a big garden filled with fruit trees. The whole property is surrounded by sunflower and cornfields in the summer.
Maison Madar is a self-catering accommodation that has all that you need to enjoy your stay.
However if you would like it’s possible to order a delicious homemade meal prepared with fresh seasonal ingredients delivered right to your terrace.
Inside and out the gite reflects it's own exceptional character and is ideal for families or couples. Good to know... we are a 15 min. drive from a Thermal Bath centre with dedicated cure facilities.
We live on site in an adjacent house to the Maison Madar accommodation. We are happy to recommend places to visit during your stay or nearby restaurants for the evening.There are surrounding vineyards for cognac and pineau tasting or if you prefer to stay on-site and have a game of Jeux de boules/petanque any time during the day or evening!

An Absolute jewel!
Don't miss this one! Everything was very, very clean and everything is provided except beach towels. The hosts, Carla and Ami, are wonderful. It is true that you do need a car. We are a family of 6 (older teenagers) and it accommodated us very well. We ate outside on the porch; worked great. There are fruit trees in the garden, and the pears were very nice. There is a public pool nearby which was great; cost 2 euros for adults and those under 18 are 1.50 euros. It is open in the afternoons till 6:30 pm. Ami is an excellent chef. There is a charge for the meal so discuss your price range with him beforehand. We had a 5 course meal with three different wines; it was absolutely amazing. He can obviously do a simpler 3 course meal and it will be ready when you ask for it. He has a wealth of information about the area. Also, note that stores and restaurants close early on a Sunday so plan accordingly. The facilities have excellent cooking equipment. We highly recommend this place!
Thank you very much for your lovely review Tisha, it was a real pleasure having you and your great family staying with us!! Looking forward to welcoming you back in the future! Warm Regards, Maison Madar.
Charming, spacious, peaceful gite with stunning views!
We recently stayed at Maison Madar and truly didn't want to leave! The gite was spotlessly clean, spacious, well equipped, tastefully decorated, comfortable and close to all amenities. There is an outdoor swimming pool within one minute drive (great for children). It was a great base for exploring this beautiful region of France. The booking contact was highly efficient and the owners were extremely friendly and always available if needed. We would highly recommend staying at Maison Madar, whether you are a couple or a family, as its ideal for all. We hope to return again! Thank you Ami and Carla for your wonderful hospitality, we felt at home straight away.
