“LAncienne Boulangerie, Caune-Minervois”
Reviewed June 17, 2012

It was a bit tired and unloved I thought. It did not help that the owners were in the process of selling this establishment and this did show. It needed the female touch and better cleaners to bring this back to what it could be. I could smell the dust. It seemed that the owners had lost their enthusiasm for running it. Otherwise the location and ambiance were very nice. Breakfast was good with the usual fresh croissants and wonderful jams. The man in the Restaurant across the way was very uncooperative with some simple food allergy requirements so we walked out.

The streets are narrow but Caunes-Minervois is authentic. The hotel is well located right adjacent to the Mayor's office. There's a terrific restaurant across the street and a boulangerie (bakery) 50 yards (meters, for you purists) away. The rooms are comfortable and reflect more the atmosphere of the Irish owner than the French countryside in which it is located, but that's okay! Roy, the owner, is super nice and helpful and he speaks perfect English! (and understands American accents!). He gave us fabulous insider's directions to all the delights of the area and there are many. He serves a very pleasant breakfast as well (fresh croissants from the bakery, yogurt, juice, jams, and all the coffee you can drink). He's a retired policeman and your belongings are safe in his locked B&B! It's very quiet on his narrow street and we got our best sleep there of our whole 2 week trip.

Room Tip: All the rooms are nice (there aren't that many of them).

The facility is very comfortable with a warm lounge,a spacious breakfast room and a protected terrace. The village of Caunes is quiet, picturesque and centrally located for exploring the Minervois. And the best part was our host , a wealth of information and advice named Roy. We do not hesitate to recommend L'Ancienne Boulangerie and certainly intend to return ourselves.

I stayed a week while I was doing a course at the nearby Abbey. Very central, I was given a lovely comfortable prettily decorated room, friendly chats over breakfast, pretty terrace to sit out on... Excellent if slighly bizarre restaurant opposite. Helpful of Gareth and Roy to pick me up from the airport (NB 30 euros each way)
Highly recommended.

Room Tip: I had room one which I think may have the best en suite shower (after Gareth showed me the others wh...

We felt welcome and home at once at this charming little place, providing everything you possibly could wish for - yummy croissants & coffee in the morning, good advises where to go and what to do, nice room for relaxing, nice setting within the heart of the ancient little village - and will be sure to be back again soon! :-)

Our first visit to Caunes-Minervois and we loved the area and L'Ancienne Boulangerie. Maybe our new favorite area and place in rural France thanks in no small part to a great host full of valuable and right on information and help.

We only had one night in this great town, but a wonderful accomodation. We would certainly return and spend more time. Gareth was a great host, and how relaxing to have English the primary language.
