Domaine de l’Espinet (Quillen, France)

What their website pictures don’t show you is an overgrown lawn, poorly patched roadways, chipped wooden landings, and a room that looks like it stepped out of the 80’s (not the well maintained kind).

Needless to say we were very disappointed after checking into our studio that we would call home for the next two nights. In contrast their pool and spa area was beautifully renovated and nicely maintained, making us want to spend the majority of our time there soaking up the sun.

Thankfully, it is located only ten minutes from downtown Quillen so you can stroll along their streets and maybe even catch their Saturday morning farmers market! There are also two castles nearby that you could take a day trip too, or you could visit Carcassonne (the option we finally decided upon).

If you are set on staying in the area and you find a great deal – 40 euro or less – then I think this could be an option for you. However, if you are looking for something that resembles this decade and is nicely maintained I would recommend searching the boutique hotels in Quillen’s old town for some better options.
