The B&B run by Sara is a very good example of going the extra mile to achieve customer satisfaction. The property is very well situated in the village very near the small supermarket and the very good local eatery and local café. The rooms are well appointed and bed very comfortable. The rooms are also very quiet. All in all... More

I could be defining this wonderful B&B in the Medieval Village of Caunes-Minervois, or the owner herself. Sara welcomed us with a radiant smile, and immediately made us feel right at home. Sara offered us wine or beer, which we gladly accepted on the private terrace. Our room was nicely appointed with luxury linens and special little touches: large fluffy... More

What can I say about this little B & B in Caunes Minervois? It is perfection! Sarah's welcome and her attention to detail is second to none. The room I had was the one shown in the picture and the beautiful french furniture and quirky french style are shown off to perfection by fresh crisp white sheets and bedding. The... More

This is a great place to stay if you are visiting the area. The Cathare sights of Minerve, Lastours & Carcassonne are all nearby and there are also many wineries near here, too. The room we had was comfortable & clean with a good double bed. The breakfast was very good, too. But the best thing about this place is... More

This B and B is a gem. Carefully run and so many great little details. The lady owner, Sara, knows how to make guests welcome and feel instantly at home. On our arrival, we were offered Wine and nibbles on a small roof terrace, which set us up for going off to explore the interesting village of Caunes-Minervois. Our bedroom... More

My husband and I recently spent 9 days in France. We could recommend any of the three chambres d'hote that we stayed in, but the real standout was Sara's lovely small hotel tucked into a small alley in Caunes-Minervois. Sara has thought of everything: soft towels, robes, slippers, and a hair dryer - a real treat for me after being... More

Former British Airways hostess Sara sure knows a thing or two about service. We were in Caunes for a family wedding and thoroughly enjoyed our four-night stay. Our comfortable bedroom opened on to a delightful terrace with flowering plants and views of the medieval town. Breakfast was a first-class affair with starched linen tablecloth, coffee and warm croissants and a... More
