This sunroom has four floor-to-ceiling double glazed doors that open the whole width of the room, transforming the space into a sunny covered terrace with wonderful views of the Pyrénées. The room has a double sofa bed and can be used as a third bedroom. The best advantage of the town of Caunes is its location as it is a short drive to many famous sights, such as the Cathar castles, the medieval historic centre of Carcassonne and its massive fairy-tail castle, and the canal du midi. Wine lovers can take tours of the region’s many wineries and nature lovers can hike the Black Mountain, which is only minutes away from the house. The house is in the centre of Caunes’ historic old town with the town’s spectacular abbey only a few minutes away by foot. The house is said to be 600 years old and many original features such as an amazing metre-thick arch in the lounge room which generates a lot of discussion. Caunes and its region have a thriving cultural scene; during summer there are many local festivals as well as jazz and classical music concerts. The fabulous and quirky restaurant of Hotel D’alibert is only a few minutes’ walk away as well as the lively local bar Le Grand Fontaine. And, of course, one cannot stay in Caunes without taking the opportunity to enjoy the croissants of the local bakeries. More

About the neighborhood
In addition to information provided in the house a visit to the tourist office located in the Abbey is very helpful. Staff there speak English fluently and while your there go into the beautiful Benadictine Abbey which was first built in the 8th century. Caunes is known for it's fabulous music festivals particularly in the summer months. Jazz and classical music being popular. Some of the nearbly villages to visit are Minerve, la Laviniere, siren, oolonzac, homps and of course Carcassonne. I would suggest you research what is unique about all of these areas in more detail.
How to get there
Caunes Minervois is located 20 minutes north of Carcassonne. There are a number of travel options. Carcassonne has both an international airport serviced by Ryanair and a train station (tgv) from Paris and the rest of France. Toulouse airport is 50 minutes away. Other airports are located at beziers, Montpellier is another option. While there is a bus service to Caunes Minervois, car hire is recommended to access all th wonderful surrounding villages in the area.
