Description

Domaine des Etoiles offers two traditional stone-built s/c cottages and three comfortable B&B rooms in the Master's House. The accommodation is set in tranquil gardens with stream and waterfall, and located in the beautiful wine producing region of the Malpere, only 90 minutes from the Mediterranean Sea, the Spanish border and the mountains,

Domaine des Etoiles  was in former times a wine producing Domaine, now lovingly restored by its current owner. Being a guest at Domaine des Etoiles is like staying in a large friendly family home. Couples, individuals, families and small groups are welcome.

Domaine des Etoiles looks out over a sea of vineyards, farmland and forest towards the majestic Pyrenees and the Black Mountains. The region produces exciting flavours reflecting the countryside and sunny climate. It is reputed to enjoy no less than 300 days of sunshine each year, with dramatic colour changes of scenery with the seasons. This area is steeped in history, with many Roman spas and buildings, historic villages and towns, and of course the Cathar religion, its castles and the mysteries associated with Rennes Le Chateau.

Hot water is produced by solar power and winter rainwater is collected, stored in the 200,000 litre wine caves, and used to nourish the garden plants during the long, hot summer months.

The one-time Masters House has become the family home and also provides B&B accommodation. Outbuildings have been transformed into two guest cottages for self-catering rentals so that you can enjoy the tranquil pace of life and the wonderful ambiance of Domaine des Etoiles.

+++++++++

Domaine des Etoiles is the best place in the world for doing nothing, like lounging on the sun deck, taking a dip in the pool, reading or relaxing on the shaded terrace listening to music or watching TV. Evenings can be spent cooking a simple meal on the BBQ to be enjoyed with a bottle of local wine.

 

But there are plenty of things to do! Walks and bike rides through the hills and vineyards, visiting the other small villages in the area, with, perhaps, a stop at the local café and bar. Bring your own bike or hire locally - we can book for you (essential). Horse riding is available at the local stables.  A short drive away are beautiful lakeside walks, bird watching, sailing and white water sports opportunities. A fishing license entitles you to fish in any water in the Aude. There are some privately stocked fishing lakes, too. If you can't bear to be away from the golf course for too long, there's an excellent course at Carcassonne. They welcome daily green fees, and clubs, trolleys and cars are available for hire.

 

The city of Carcassonne, boasts the second most visited building in France: the medieval castle. Carcassonne was also the location for films with Kevin Costner and more recently, Johnny Depp. If you are planning a holiday for a young family there are plenty of tourist destinations to keep all ages amused. The medieval market town of Limoux boasts the longest Carnival in the world (January to Easter). Eating out is a real pleasure with longer wine lists than most London restaurants. The Languedoc is now producing some excellent award winning vintages and we can organise convivial wine tasting evenings for small groups.

 

There are many market towns locally, and  Mediterranean beaches and pretty seaside towns are an hour or so away. So, yes, there are plenty of things to do at Domaine des Etoiles  ...
