About Neil Malyon

The Domaine has been lovingly restored to provide three stylish and comfortable gites. Each gite offers very spacious accommodation. The grounds surrounding the Domaine are tranquil and offer wonderful views of the surrounding wildlife, countryside and mountains. There are many interesting places to visit in the surrounding area; or the beautiful Mediterranean beaches can be easily reached. This is our first venture into running a holiday rental business and we want all of our guests to love the Domaine as much as we do. We welcome any feedback that will make stays more enjoyable for future guests.

Neil Malyon purchased this cottage in 2012

Why Neil Malyon chose Castelnaudary area

We purchased the Domaine in December 2012 after doing some holiday inspired house viewing in the Aude Valley. Having spent 15 years holidaying in France we came to; and really fell in love with the Aude valley as it offers countryside, mountains and beaches all within easy access. The Aude valley offers all the benefits of the climate in the South of France but is still very peaceful and traditional. The Domaine nestles in farmland but is very close to the road network which gives access to all that the Languedoc has to offer.

The famous canal du midi is only a 0.6 km easy walk from the Domaine.

What makes this cottage unique

We live at Domaine Saladry alongside our guests and are on hand to offer advice, information and maps to anyone staying or can respectfully provide guests peace and quiet if required. We have an 8 seater VW Transporter and are happy to drop off/pick up guests on request and by arrangement.

The mature grounds offer a very tranquil place for visitors, the views are outstanding and the pool complex has been specifically designed for relaxation and enjoyment for all age groups.

Preciosa propiedad con ubicación excelente

  • 5 of 5

Estuvimos en la propiedad para el puente de mayo. La ubicación de la granja es excelente, muy cerca de Carcassonne, unos 15 minutos, así como de Toulouse. Castelnaudry es la ciudad de cierta importancia más cercana. Es la cuna del "cassoulet", así que bien vale una visita. Domaine Saladry se encuentra a unos pocos metros del "Canal du midi", lo cual lo hace un punto muy interesante para aquellos que realizan la ruta en bicicleta. No era nuestro caso, pero esta cercanía al canal hace que se pueda disfrutar de paseos a lo largo de este muy agradables. En cuanto al domaine, nosotros en concreto nos quedamos en Les Cypres. La casa tiene todo lo que se pueda necesitar para estancias tanto cortas como largas, desde microondas hasta secador de pelo, pasando por plancha. Es una casa muy acogedora y decorada con muchísimo gusto. La propiedad está muy bien mantenida. Yo diría que las fotos de la página web no le hacen justicia. En cuanto a los propietarios, Neil y Vickie, son un encanto, y nos ayudaron en todo lo que les pedimos. Siempre están ahí para hacerte una recomendación de que visitar o donde comer.

Sin duda nos parece un lugar totalmente recomendable y estamos planeando ya nuestra próxima visita.

Beautiful place

Excellent location to visit friends, fantastic grounds, brilliant for kids and for safety, very relaxing pool with spectacular views, plus Neil and Vicky's attention to detail for the gites and their guests is great, inclusive of exceptionally clean and crisp bedding (small things/big impact). A great place and very happy guests - have booked next year.

Beautifully restored gite in a peaceful location

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our 10 days at Les Cypres. The gite was beautifully restored but still retained a traditional ambience. The grounds of La Domaine Saladry are delightful with wonderful views of the Pyrenees on clear days. The nearby Canal du Midi and surrounding towns and villages are ideal for short excursions.

Neil and Vickie were most helpful and very knowledgeable about the local region.

The peace and quiet we enjoyed there was refreshing.

We hope to return!

What a beautiful find!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had the most relaxing and enjoyable stay mainly because our 3 children were so happy and entertained. The outdoor games area and the swimming pool kept them amused all week they didn't even mention the fact there was no tv! The grounds are beautiful and the gite impeccably clean and we'll equipped. Extremely comfortable beds! So quiet and dark at night we have never slept so peacefully. We thank Vickie and Neil for being wonderfully friendly hosts and will definitely be back again .

Best wishes from the French Family .
