About the Owner
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.

Preciosa propiedad en un enclave magnífico
Estos días en el Dominio Saladry de Villepinte han sido perfectos. La casa es tan bonita y tan cómoda que, sin ninguna duda, repetiremos. Estamos muy agradecidos de la hospitalidad de los propietarios, que han hecho todo fácil para nosotros. Lo recomendamos con toda seguridad!
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
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!
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 .
Wonderful stay at Domaine Saladry - this is our 3rd year of visiting. It's a peaceful location with fantastic views where the children can play freely. Our gites was well equipped with everything you need for an enjoyable stay. Neil and Vickie are perfect hosts!
Lovely gites in an idyllic location
Everything was perfect! Lovely gites with fabulous pool, games hangar, views and friendly, helpful owners. We will definitely go back!
