We stayed at the Domaine d'Auriac the week of July 21st 2014 for 2 elegant nights.
We have stayed at many Chateau and Relais Gourmand properties over the years.
We have never been treated so graciously and personally anywhere in the world. Marie-Helene and her family and staff were the best hosts we have ever had. Our suite was elegant.
The restaurant, which has 1 Michelin Star is simply outstanding from service to the top quality of the food and its presentation. The second night we were there one of their local suppliers had bought in wild mushrooms which are normally not available at this time of year. However there had been a lot of rain earlier producing a fine crop of wild mushrooms that were sautéed and served as a special first course. This was an outstanding rare treat.
The restaurant is famous for their cassoulet and Soufflé au Grand Marnier. Both the cassoulet and the soufflé were the best I ever had. These specialties should not be missed. The wine list is also outstanding.
There is nothing at this property that is not the best. The grounds and gardens are also beautiful and very well maintained.
There is nothing in the old fortress city of Carcassonne or the modern city below to compare to the D'Auric.
