The domain of Auriac welcomes you in its green setting for an unforgettable stay in Cathar country.

Just a step from the City of Carcassonne, under the foliage of a tercentenary park in the Mediterranean scents and populated by hundreds of birds, The Domaine d’Auriac offers you an unforgettable hotel experience. The Estate is built on the former oppidum of Carsac, where the history of Carcassonne began and which has since been classefied as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.


The hotel abounds in treasures and wonders because behind these walls you will discover a 1-star restaurant from the Guide Michelin, for the connoisseurs of French gastronomy. Ba tree-lined swimming pool and a tennis court are available for guests seeking out sport or relaxation. The highlight will be to play on the golf 18 holes of the Domaine d’Auriac which ends at the foot of the Bistrot d’Auriac’s sunny terrace.


The history of our house has been written by the men and women, my Grandparents and parents, who built it over the generations.
Throughout his life, my father Bernard Rigaudis loved the land here in Aude, passing on his passion for the region’s delicacies through his profession as a cook,-winemaker and instructor.
Today all of us perpetuate this heritage.

Marie-Hélène Rigaudis-Calvet, Mistress of the House.
