Charming, newly renovated village house in Caunes-Minervois

Holiday home in Caunes-Minervois with patio
The house is on a cobbled pedestrian street in the heart of this historic village, right near the historic 12th century abbey. A car can be parked just nearby and Rue du Château is lovely and quiet in spite of its proximity to the centre of the village with its restaurants and the Mairie. It is on four floors - the lower ground with a utility room. The raised ground floor is a very large open-plan kitchen/dining/living room which opens via French Doors at the rear to its own courtyard garden complete with wood-burning pizza oven built into one of the walls. The first floor has a master bedroom with en suite bathroom and another double bedroom and family bathroom. The top floor is a large loft bedroom. The whole house has just been completely renovated to a very high standard and combines luxury with the 500-year old tradition of this lovely stone house. The kitchen has a 900mm wide range cooker, fridge/freezer and dishwasher. The kitchen is very well eqipped and contains all the things you need to create lovely French food during your stay.
Quality linen and towels are provided, the beds are comfortable and there is a good selection of pillows..
The large flat screen TV is connected to Orange and has approximately 300 channels. We have Satellite capability if you bring your own Sky Card.
The stereo/FM radio has an ipod dock as well as the ability to play music or radio from your Smart phone by Bluetooth.
We have free Wifi.

What to do: There is lots to do in Caunes itself and the wider region, which lends itself to visiting historic castles and churches as well as to cycling, walking or wine-tasting at all the local vineyards, many of which are engaged in a drive to go upmarket and so there are some really fine wines to be checked out across the Minervois. The landscape is scattered with beautiful historic villages such as Minerve and Mas-Cabardes. There is also a huge swimming/sailing lake nearby which is great fun. Most of all this is a restful holiday destination in one of France's oldest and most beautiful regions, with Carcassonne and the Canal du Midi very close by. If you fancy days out at the seaside, Mediterranean beaches are less than an hour away by car.
Rooms open to patios. This accommodation offers separate dining areas. Bathrooms include a combined bath/shower unit.

5/5 Excellent

Traveler's delight
This home in the lovely little medieval village of Caunes-Minervois was an absolute delight! The building was very old and had lots of character, but the facilities inside were up to date and very comfortable. The house was stocked with all sorts of supplies, and Gary and Shelley had even left a lovely bottle of wine. Our little courtyard was a secluded little oasis hidden within the ancient city walls. The village was a delight to explore, and so central for day trips to other nearby cities and towns. If you are seeking a comfortable holiday in an old village, this is the perfect spot. Gary and Shelley were the perfect hosts with excellent communication!

5/5 Excellent

Perfect holiday in Caunes Minervois
We enjoyed the wonderful spotless home and amenities of a well stocked kitchen, with plenty of towels and bedding and comfortable beds. It is a central location from which to explore the amazing Aude valley. The townspeople were friendly and helpful. We took long morning walks through the countryside and long leisurely dinners prepared at home or in the towns several restaurants. Would love to come back. Would definitely chose to stay here again.

5/5 Excellent

It was wonderful. The place was quaint and comfortable
Definitely would recommend to anyone who wants to experience medieval France. We were close to everything including chateaux du latours, the caves, wineries and Carcassonne. People here are lovely

5/5 Excellent

A beautiful house in a charming and buzzy village.
The house is in an excellent location, comfortable and very well equipped - perfect for us as a group of 5 adults. The patio is an ideal place to enjoy a meal or read a book beneath the vines. Nicola was responsive and very kindly arranged to return an item we had left behind - very grateful! Thanks for a wonderful stay.

4/5 Good

Comfortable and pleasant stay
We had a pleasant stay. The house was well appointed and the village is easy to get around and provided good access to surrounding areas. Having two bedrooms and two bathrooms made it very comfortable for the two couples in our group. The courtyard is a nonus
