My husband and I stayed at Hotel D’Alibert with another couple for 5 nights in October. The hotel and restaurant are well run and very comfortable but what made this stay a memory was the owner, Frederic himself. Before we even arrived he assisted us in obtaining a private tour of a local winery. We arrived at 8:30 p.m. tired... More

Caunes Minervois is a small enough village for travellers to park on the main road and ask any of the locals for directions to the hotel. It's signposted in any case. And it's opposite La Mairie. Frederic the owner won't be there between 2 & 5 pm so try to checkin outside these hours. He will show you to the... More

We stayed at this hotel for three nights in September. It is a delightful place not far from Carcassonne.... About 20 minutes. Frederick will look after you.... He is a treasure!! We had the best meal in France at his restaurant. Rick Stein apparently did part of his trip through France at his restaurant!! The accommodation was excellent... The building... More

We spent only one night but it was great! The place is beautiful and romantic, Frédéric the owner was very kind and helpful. We had a great dinner at a good price and nice continental breakfast in the garden. Highly recommend!

A Luke warm welcome led to a disappointing evening where we did not feel comfortable. The wine was opened and we were not asked to taste it unlike other restaurants where you sample it before it is poured for you. The food was mediocre and we left early.

We based ourselves here for a week while exploring the region and it was a great choice, both because of the hotel and the town itself. The hotel is in a quiet back-street and our (family) room was huge. We ate at the restaurant a couple of times and the food was very good. The proprietor was also very helpful... More

This family run hotel is charming, well run and fairly priced. The building itself is old, full of charm and the owners have created a lovely atmosphere. Our bedroom was a good size with tiled floor and window onto the internal courtyard. It was quite dark but that is the nature of the architecture. The bathroom looked recently renovated and... More

This hotel is as hard to find as other reviewers say it is. Best strategy is to get as close as you can, park on the main street, and then walk to find it. Arrival while it's still light is a must, or you will be sleeping in your car because you will not find it. Once you do track... More

This place is an absolute gem. Caunes-Minervois is a find in and of itself; it’s a stunningly well-preserved medieval village about 15-20 km NE of Carcassonne and a delightful alternative to the throngs of tourists that find their way there. Beyond that, Hotel d'Alibert is a wonderfully eclectic mix of the old and the new – housed in an 16th... More

Wowee..... Was not expecting this type of place in the sleepy town of Caunes! A play on words is on the menu here, it's worth taking a French speaker with you to laugh with the owners descriptions! Not for the faint-hearted though, if you like plainer food, stick with alternative restaurants as you'll be hard pushed to find a plate... More
