“A welcome start to a week in Suthern France”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 30, 2012

Luc and Marianne welcomed us to their amazing B&B, just outside Bram. We arrived by train and Luc was gracious enough to pick us up and save us the 1km walk with our bags. My daughter and I loved the large pool and it was a refreshing oasis after a long, hot day traveling from Italy by planes, trains and automobiles. On Luc's recommendation we tried the Asian restaurant in town for dinner, and had a lovely meal and a great walk back to the B&B. Fair warning - the wifi is only available in the TV room, and there was no air conditioning in our room. Breakfast by the pool was very nice.
If you are starting a trip on the Canal du Midi with Nicols (or ending one) I cannot recommend a night here more highly.

On our journey through France a helpful lady at an Office de Tourisme referred us to Domaine des Magasins for accommodation in a village called Bram near Carcassonne. Situated virtually next to the Port of Bram on the Canal du Midi, this chambre d'hote is an oasis. Encircled by stone walls to provide privacy, the house is set in a spacious garden that provides calm and quiet.
We are so glad we stayed for three nights and enjoyed the warm, friendly hospitality of our host and hostess Luc and Marianne. They are wonderful and their house is gorgeous. We didn't use the swimming pool or jacuzzi but we enjoyed the lovely bedroom and beautiful garden. Bram is fairly ordinary but we will remember our stay at Domaine des Magasins as extraordinary.

This was the first night of our honeymoon in France. Its a stunning B&B and arguably we wish we could have stayed more than 1 night, but our itinerary meant we needed to move on.

Luc and Marianne provided a very warm welcome. We arrived quite late at 9pm, but after a quick tour we were able to sit outside our room and tuck into some bread, cheese, pate and wine following our flight and drive from Toulouse.

The room was beautiful. The bed so comfy and the bathroom huge.

The Domaine has a pool and lots of space to relax in - shame we couldn't take advantage.

Breakfast was excellent, fruit, yoghurt, croissants, jams etc. You sit around a big table in their hugely spacious living room, and we had a full European mix of fellow guests that made for entertaining conversation, with Luc hugely enjoying everyone's company.

Really beautiful place. Top tip - stay more than the 1 night we managed and really enjoy it!

a really charming and warm B&B. We loved to spend 3 nights of our holiday here. LUC and Kenzo (the "sacré de birmanie" cat) did really everything to keep this stay in our mind.
Even we did a big mess (they will also never forget us !).
Delicious Croissants and a good coffee in a big spacious hall. Big, comfortable and clean rooms, good beds, free WIFI.
And Luc speaks a really good English (not usual in France !) and we loved to have long conversations with him.

Room Tip: Luc showed us all 3 rooms. Don´t mind, they are all at the same high standard and very quiet.

Weather ordinary, rang the gate bell to be greeted by a most obliging host. Just had to stay. Warm comfortable room. Dinner reservations arranged and personal taxi service provided. Most enjoyable Continental Breakfast in a beautiful room. Best "service" experienced on the Canal du Midi thus far!
Thanks Luc

This place is truly truly a gem! Plenty of room to roam... unique architecture... impeccable service... and truly great hosts, who are very international and really relate to everyone, as they lived abroad for a good part of their lives.

Don't miss this place and this experience!

Enjoy!
