“Stunning!!”
Reviewed 7 October 2012

We bathed in the magnificence of Domaine Michaud for three nights and so wished that we could have stayed longer. A stunning location tucked into the hills above Carcassonne. Beautifully appointed with everything you could want; an enveloping bed, a large bathroom, comfort and such cleanliness. After a day of sightseeing, to return to the terrace, a crisp bottle of chilled white wine from the local 'cave' and a good book was more than anyone could wish for. To while away the time in the October sunshine until our superb dinner is something I intend to do whenever I am in the region. This is truly a rare place made special by the care and consideration to all aspects of the hospitality given by this friendliest of families.

My wife and I are just back from Domaine Michaud after spending 3 nights there The owners are Dutch and also speak French English and German. This boutique hotel, which has been extensively upgraded, originally started life as a large country house about 300 years ago. Less than an hours drive. to Toulouse or the Pyrenees the accommodation and food are of a high standard.

We had an enjoyable stay and found Jolanda the owner and her daughter Naomi Esme very friendly and helpful

After reading reviews on tripadvisor, we selected DM for a two night stay on our way down to Nice and we were not disappointed! Like others, our high expectations were exceeded in every respect: a beautiful room overlooking the swimming pool, wonderful views of Carcassonne and the surrounding areas from the garden and the dining room, magnificent three course dinners cooked by Jolanda and served (with wine) by Naomi, plus helpful information and advice about visiting Carcassonne as well as other nearby places of interest. We ate our dinners and very satisfying breakfasts in the spacious dining room/lounge and received excellent service from Naomi and Jolanda.

In a relatively short space of time, the Danen family have settled in a new country, worked very hard to restore this property and succeeded in creating a wonderful, relaxing place to stay. Their commitment and hard work are reflected in the reviews received for DM on this site which they thoroughly deserve. We look forward to staying at DM in the future and will encourage others to do the same.

My husband and I spent a few nights in Domaine Michaud and were delighted with our visit to this lovely boutique hotel. The rooms are beautiful and the Danen family go to trouble to make your stay special. Our plan was to eat at Domaine Michaud on the first night and then to travel into Carcassonne for the other nights but the food was so delicious in Domaine Michaud that we ate there every night and enjoyed every bite. Jolanda is a wonderful hostess who helped us pick daily trips to make our stay even more interesting. I have no hesitation in recommending Domaine Michaud and I hope to return there in the not too distant future.

Room Tip: Be sure to sample the dinners, I can still remember the taste of the pea soup starter. Yum:)

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.

My husband and I have just returned from a wonderful 3 nights in Domaine Michaud. having read the marvellous reviews here on TA I had high expectations . I can honestly say my expectations were exceeded!The family is committed to providing an excellent service to all guests and Yolanda and Fred have done a wonderful job of the restoration of the Domaine. Our room was spacious with a huge bathroom. The decor is tasteful and elegant and what a comfortable bed!
It was very warm during our stay so the large swimming pool was very welcome! It was lovely to relax by the pool sipping a drink in the evening...pure bliss!
We had dinner on 2 of the evenings and as others have said we were very impressed with the quality and variety of the food.Yolanda is an excellent cook and I feel 29 euro was great value. Naomi Esme served and though only 17 she is, in my opinion, destined for great things in the hospitality business.She couldn't have been looked after better.
As you can see we were extremely impressed with the family and the service they are providing I can now understand why other reviewers have rated DM so highly. The family work so hard and we wish them every success in the future....we hope to return some day and we are so glad that we were lucky enough to have spent time in DM.

Without a shadow of doubt, staying at Domain Michaud, was the highlight of our weeks holiday in the South of France. Hubby had found DM on Trip Advisor and keen to support family businesses decided that this was the place for us. We booked over the Internet by e-mail and Jolanda and Fred were very helpful with the booking and directions. On arrival, the setting and views simply take your breath away with a near 270 degrees of fantastic scenery. The property is much bigger than the photos suggest and the guest accommodation is beside the large pool, most of which have views over the valley / hillside. The house also has a large dining room and family / receptions room which can be used by guests and these are huge. Our room (Serena) was spotlessly clean, very warm (in decoration) and inviting. It was the largest bedroom that we had stayed in during our 'France trip' and we had three large windows looking out onto the vista. Our hosts, Jolanda and Fred and thier family were wonderful. Really nice people who clearly go out of their way to make sure that their guests stay is memorable. Even Luna (family dog) made us feel at home! We decided to eat in the house on both nights of our stay and the food and accompanying wine was simply lovely (this was a good call as we dont think that any of the local restuarants could have done better and we could both have some wine!). Naomi (daughter) helped her mother out with the evening meals and was a wonderful host too - a real credit to the family. Eating outside as the sun set and the stars came out was great - really relaxing and romantic! We loved it. The place is very peaceful and a real change of pace from the hustle and bustle of the towns. We spent one day in Carcasonne and the medieval town is good fun (bit touristy but what do you expect). Overall, we would recommend everyone to stay here, it's simply fantastic. Would we return - ohh yes please!

Room Tip: The're all good!
