Marquay is a picturesque tiny stone village with narrow cobblestone roads and stone homes located in the heart of Perigord in the Dordogne Region. It's a great location to use as your base for visits to all the sights of this incredible French region. It's only 10 minutes to Sarlet but without the traffic and crowds. It might be a little tough to locate but it's worth letting a GPS guide you through the windy roads. Marquay is also where the most exceptional Bed and Breakfast is located, Maison de Marquay, a wonderfully renovated stone home with lush gardens, a pool and comfy outdoor sitting areas. Our very quiet and restful air-conditioned bedroom and en suite bath were both very spacious with elegant French furniture and tasteful French touches. We were amazed at the feeling of comfort and warmth that the gracious owners, Marie-Laure and Gerard, created for their guests. You can just feel the love and joy that they give and receive from their guests. When we arrived, they were waiting for us with smiles, guide books and an offering of refreshments. Perfect! As they oriented us, we breathed in the quiet sounds of birds chirping, leaves rustling and pool waters' lapping. Imagine all this plus Gerard is an accomplished chef with the very best culinary skills and an artistic flair for meal presentation. Reserve one day in advance and he will prepare an amazingly creative, delicious 4 course dinner. It's always Gerard's surprise and always special and he always uses fresh regional foods! Dinners were a highlight 2X's for our stay and well worth the nominal additional charge for both the food and the experience! Exquisite! Next time we'd dine there every night! Of course, Gerard's delicious breakfasts are served every day by Marie-Laure in her lovely dining setting or in the outdoor gardens. Marie seems to attend to all the "details" and is she great at that...so...oooo nice. So sorry our stay is over.
