House is even more than described on the website. Great amenities, excellent kitchen to cook in for two or twenty people. We lacked for nothing the two weeks we were there. The house manager is always available for questions or assistance, the garage is large enough for our four door hatchback. This is the first home we have stayed in that had its own garage, a special treat to not have to look for street parking. The pool is large enough to do laps in plus it has the machine that generates a current you can swim against. The wifi is incredibly strong - we never lacked for speed even if 3-4 of us were online at the same time. We will definitely return within the next year or two.

Can't beat the location...the medieval city is just behind the property. Perfect for 2 couples or a large family. Be advised this is a working vineyard so there can be noisy machinery early on occasion. Their wine is wonderful.

The grounds of Domaine Saladry are extensive with facilities to suit all ages; a beautiful pool and views. Vickie and Neil were always on hand but never intrusive. Very good value for money.
