About Neil & Vickie Malyon
We purchased the Domaine in 2012 after doing some holiday inspired house viewing in the Aude valley. Having spent 15 years holidaying in France, we came to this area and really fell in love with it as it offers countryside, mountains and beaches all within easy access. This is our first venture into running a holiday rental business after many years working in corporate environments and we want all our guests to love it as much as we do. We welcome any feedback that will make stays more enjoyable for future guests.

Why Neil & Vickie Malyon chose Villepinte
The Domaine nestles in farmland but the road network is easily accessible which gives access to all that the Languedoc has to offer. The famous canal du midi in only 0.6 km away from the Domaine. The Aude valley offers all the benefits of the midi climate but it still very peaceful and traditional. The Domaine has been lovingly restored to provide 3 stylish Gite, with modern and comfortable facilities. Each Gite is spacious and the grounds are tranquil offering wonderful views of the surrounding countryside, wildlife and mountains. There are many interesting places to visit within 1 hour drive.
What makes this Cottage unique
We live at Domaine Saladry alongside our guests and are on hand to offer advice, information and maps on things to do 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 at local restaurants or the train station on request and with prior arrangement. The mature grounds offer a very tranquil place for visitors, the views are outstanding and the pool area has been specifically designed for relaxation and enjoyment for all age groups. We have many repeat guests and we are always happy to see them and we find they recommend us to others.

This was our second visit to Domaine Saladry and it hit the mark yet again! It combines charm with luxury in a stunning location, including impressive views of the Pyrenees. The massive pool, the grounds and the facilities are immaculate and we were happy to spend days unwinding and relaxing onsite. We explored some local towns, villages and markets and enjoyed a cycle along the Canal du Midi. Vickie and Neil are very genuine, friendly, kind and competent hosts, we highly recommend this little piece of paradise and hope to return soon!
Vickie and Neil are very friendly and professional. They have created a comfortable, charming and stylish home from home. We really enjoyed the large clean pool, the games area and the highlight was our cycle along the Canal du Midi. The property is calm and peaceful although close enough for shopping, restaurants and local tourist attractions. The two cute cats, Woodie and Smokey were a bonus! I would highly recommend this property.
Amazing location and perfect place to stay
We stayed in a beautiful 2 bedroom luxury Gite at Domaine Saladry in June 2017. The location is amazing, lying by the swimming pool looking out across the mountains with only the sound of birds is the perfect way to unwind after the normal rushing around of every day life. Loads to do in the area, stroll around Carcassonne castle or cycle along the canal stopping for an occasional glass of wine whilst watching the boats go by. Enjoyed so much have already planned and booked my next stay later this year, a must for everyone travelling to this area.
Many thanks Julie for a great review - we are so pleased you enjoyed your stay with us. Looking forward to seeing you later in the year.

Family holiday in Saladry
We went with our son, daughter in law and one year old grandson for a one week break between Toulouse and Carcassone. A lovely gite was our perfect base for the holiday. The owners Neil and Vickie were excellent hosts and did everything they could to help us have a thoroughly enjoyable stay.
Thank you for reviewing your stay at Les Pins, Domaine Saladry. It's great you enjoyed your stay with us; even the weather was good! We'd love to welcome you back; should you choose to visit the region again.

Que de jolies surprises dans ce gite spacieux !
En 1er lieu, je me dois de parler de l'accueil : exceptionnel et chaleureux.
Ensuite du gite : de grandes pièces, très propres, avec une cheminée qui fonctionne à merveille.
Et après être arrivés dans la soirée, nous avons été sidérés le lendemain de découvrir face à nous la chaîne des Pyrénées enneigée, magnifique.
Les enfants (7 à 14 ans) se sont précipités dans le jardin pour profiter des jeux extérieurs mis à notre disposition (balançoires, ping-pong, badmington, fléchettes,...). Au moment de partir à la fin de notre week end, cela a été un déchirement tant les enfants s'étaient imaginés que nous étions en vacances.
Merci à Vicky et Neil. A bientôt
Merci pour vos mots gentils.
Nous aimerions que vous restiez au Domaine Saladry à nouveau si vous venez dans cette région encore!
super gîte et propriétaires aux petits soins
Notre séjour de 2 nuits au mois d'octobre s'est magnifiquement bien déroulé. Nous étions agréablement surpris de la beauté du gîte, de sa propreté, son calme... Le gîte "les pins" est composé de 2 chambres mais de 5 lits très confortables avec 2 salles de bain très fonctionnelles. Nous aurions aimé rester plus longtemps mais nous reviendrons pour profiter de l'immense jardin, la piscine et la vue magnifique.
Les propriétaires, Neil et Vickie sont des personnes aux petits soins et très gentils, merci beaucoup!
Réservez sans attendre.
