Would definately return. Lovely hospitality. Beauiful place. So quiet. Lots of cycles and walks. Not far to cycle to Carcassonne along canal. Lots of other cycle tracks. Could not have been a better holiday. Thank you.
My family (10 of us, 3 generations, over 2 weeks) had a wonderful holiday at the Villa Nova. The house is spacious and comfortable, furnished with an interesting mix of up to date equipment as well as lovely traditional French rustic furniture. We all loved spending time in and around the big saline pool, especially the first week when the weather was so hot (40 degrees!). Set on a hillside above the village of Caunes Minervois, there are wonderful views over the village and towards the Pyrenees and the Montagne Noire. The village is interesting with a medieval Abbey, famous historic marble quarries and local shops and restaurants. We also enjoyed discovering the area, including Carcassonne, the Canal du Midi, Minerve, the market at Olonzac, the castles at Lastours, the caves at Cabréspine and the lake at Cavayère. There are also many opportunities to taste the local Minervois wines as vineyards extend in all directions from the village. The house provided us with an excellent base and an ideal setting to celebrate a special family birthday and we would like to thank Jenny for making it available for us to enjoy.
