Neil Malyon purchased this cottage in 2012
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.
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.

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
We stayed in Les Cypres. It was a class above what I'd previously thought of as a typical gite - comfortable, well-equipped, and well furnished, with a tasteful blend of traditional and modern. The grounds are spacious, with amazing views all round and the outdoor facilities are excellent. Neil and Vickie are helpful and welcoming hosts who are justifiably proud of what they have achieved, and deserve great success.
Villepinte is a great centre for touring, with heathland, coast, mountains and coast all reachable, and all worth visiting, and the great city of Toulouse is just down the autoroute, with Albi not much further.
There are plenty of restaurants within driving distance, but you must visit the wonderful food market at Revel - the best small town market I have ever seen.
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.
A gite of the very highest standard.....everything you could need and beautifully and tastefully furnished; the location ideal for the Canal du Midi and neighbouring towns and villages; perfect for cycling. The grounds of Domaine Saladry are extensive with facilities to suit all ages; a beautiful pool and views. Vickie and Neil were always on hand but never intrusive. Very good value for money.
Fantastic setting, beautiful house decorated to high level, pristinely clean, gorgeous rooms, wonderful friendly hosts full of local knowledge and wine tips. Gardens magnificent and a pool quite simply to die for. Our beach fanatic teens didn't want to leave the side of the pool it was that good. The place has it all, thoughtfully presented for your every need. Cannot recommend highly enough.
We stayed for our vacations and it was a marvelous experience. The place is perfect, the house its so beautiful and clean. And the owner are a amazing couple that make our vacation more perfect . Thank you Vickie and Neil.
