Lovely house in a great location

5 of 5
Thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this little village. The house is well kitted out with lots of space, a cozy wood burning stove and an atmospheric position next to the church. We did lots of driving in the area to explore the towns and villages and found it to be a great spot.

A pleasant week in October

5 of 5
The house was perfect for our stay situated within a few minutes of the centre of town. A spacious house and two terraces give lots of outdoor space, the sunny upper terrace gives good views of the Abbey whilst seeing the sun go down. Caunnes Minervois is a good place to stay, a good number of restaurants, a supermarket and a boulangerie. Communication and organisation with the owner was excellent.
