Staying at Domain Michaud for three nights was like having a big house in the country. We drove 15 kms from Carcassonne to this sanctuary in the hills with big views. The accommodation is excellent with spacious living areas and a bedroom and ensuite that you read about and see in the movies. Breakfast is included in the reasonable tariff and dinner, created by Jolanda, is offered for €30 pp. This is a real treat as the three course dinner (+ a tasty appetizer) is accompanied by delicious wine/s.
Our three nights went by quickly. Jolanda helped us to plan our daily tours. After 7 hours of driving one day in our uncomfortable little hire car, we stayed the next day. Be aware that you are car dependent in these country homes.
There really is nothing like a well and lovingly run family home. Thanks to Jolanda and all the gang at Domain Michaud.
