We stayed for four nights with Alix and Henry and were more than pleased with our accomodations. As others have noted, Alix serves a wonderful and healthy breakfast featuring fruit and home made preserves. We used the Domain as a base to visit noy only Carcassone but also the Cathar historic sites that are everywhere in this beautiful region of France. It was unseasonably cool during our visit in mid-May and Alix provided the girls with the warm coats they needed bit did not pack for this trip. My wife and I stayed in the Tower room which is quite a climb but worth it if you're able bodied. The grounds are beautifully maintained and the setting for the pool is glorious. Alix made calls for us and provided loads of useful information. We would not hesitate to recommend the Domaine du Maran to anyone travelling in this area.
