About Neil Malyon

The Domaine has been lovingly restored during 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 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 0.7 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.

super gîte et propriétaires aux petits soins

  • 5 of 5

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.

Best of Everything!

  • 5 of 5

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.

Utterly magical

  • 5 of 5

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.

Even better the second time

  • 5 of 5

Our short break before Christmas was just as enjoyable as our first visit in the summer - maybe even more so, the spotlessly clean, comfortable gite being wonderfully cosy with the wood burner going. We took up Neil and Vickie's offer of transport, rather than hiring a car and were so glad we did: not only did we have the hassle-free luxury of being picked up and dropped off at the airport, we were taken to all the places we wanted to visit in the comfortable minibus with the benefit of Neil and Vickie's excellent local knowledge and helpful, kind suggestions that made our visit even more memorable. They seemed to be able to blend in our requests with their own plans, visits to local markets etc without anything seeming to be any trouble at all. Would recommend to anyone wanting a relaxing break with as little or as much assistance from their hosts as they need. Especially enjoyed the night visit to Carcassonne for an excellent meal at a beef restaurant, and enjoyed the Cite's Christmas lights and ice rink: being able to visit the Christmas markets in Toulouse before departing was also fantastic!

Owner's Response: Hi Amanda and Richard, Thanks so much for your kind words. We also enjoyed spending time visiting local places in the winter and discovering some new places to eat and the pre Xmas atmosphere in the local towns. As always, we are happy to have helped and you will always receive a warm welcome!

A beautiful little getaway

  • 5 of 5

Me and my girlfriend loved our stay at Domaine Saladry. Neil and Vickie were exceptional hosts and we honestly can't praise them enough!

Our accommodation 'Les Pins' was immaculate upon arrival, A great first impression and the accommodation continued to impress throughout our stay. Well furnished, great facilities and a breathtaking view to boot.

The pool was not open due to the winter climate but even so, you could tell how well maintained it was, Sun loungers, showers and a incredible view over looking the Pyrenees.

The hanger area was great for a us big kids! Well maintained with table football, ping-pong and darts all made available to us I was definitely in my element.

Overall I can't recommend Domaine Saladry highly enough. Neil and Vickie are great hosts and their gites are set up to accommodate all kind of holidaymakers. A thoroughly enjoyable holiday and we can't wait to return next year!
