Domaine d'Auriac is an excellent family-owned hotel in just outside of Carcassonne, but just 1km from the Cite, the most important monument. Spectacular grounds, very intimate service, great, 1 Michelin star restaurant, and wonderful, knowledgeable staff. Only consideration is the rooms are perhaps a bit basic for what one could expect, but the rest makes more than up for it.... More

We have been travelling throughout Portugal, Spain and France the last two and 1/2 weeks and thought all of our hotels up to this point were beautiful however....this hotel was superior in service, surroundings. The Rigaudis family obviously take great pride in this beautiful family hotel. Thank you for our memorable stay. We were sad to leave.

We spent one night at this beautiful country house hotel. From the moment we arrived the staff couldn't have done more to make us (and our dog) feel welcome. The room was spacious and comfortable and the grounds are lovely. We didn't use the pool but it looked very nice. We at the Bistro by the golf course and enjoyed... More

This was our fourth visit to Le Domaine d'Auriac. The setting is wonderful (also has golf and tennis). Every detail is very carefully handled. Almost all of the staff speak some English. The gastronomic restaurant -- fine food, wines and service. We can't wait to return. (It is very reasonably priced for its quality!!

I've stayed at several Relais and Chateaux properties, this one being my least favorite. Rooms and bathrooms need some updating. Bathroom handle was broken off several times. Lack of outlets. Rooms just weren't that nice and certainly below what I'd expect from a five star hotel. Front desk was peculiarly acceptable of where our towels were one afternoon and had... More

We stayed overnight on our way to Spain, so did not use the spa or other facilities, but enjoyed our stroll around the gardens. A very warm welcome and we were upgraded to a pleasant room overlooking the garden. The dinner menu was truly "Michelin star" - from the amuse bouche to the souffle for dessert.The Sommelier suggested an excellent... More

Carcasonne is an awesome city and Domain d'Auriac is the only place to stay! Beautifully located, the hotel is stylish, the staff professional and friendly and the rooms tastefully furnished. The food is extraordinary with the lobster menu delightful and varied. The wines were phenomenal and complemented the cheeseboard and desserts beautifully. A wonderful experience!

If I am honest I would probably have given this a 3 star review based on first impressions upon arrival. In our opinion, although fond of french country decor, we felt the room to be a little tired and in need of an update. I would note however this was a weekend away and we didn't splash out on a...

We stayed here for 3 nights in May and had a wonderful time. Excellent food, spacious room and courteous staff; the pool was a bit cold though! Thank you very much for a wonderful stay - we will return!

My wife and I have visited over the years more than six times. And the attention to detail, service is excellent. We have come alone and with friends. Each time is just like the last, wonderful. The staff make you feel right at home as soon as you arrive. Carcassonne is a walled city very much worth visiting. The "cite",... More
