The house is a medieval home built partially from the stones of the old hospital from down the street (now a small car park). Residing within the old medieval centre of the old walled village, it is close to everything including the Abbey, shops and restaurants. It retains much of the old charm while having all the modern conveniences.

The house is situated in the heart of this medieval village. All amenities are within walking distance - shops, restaurants, historic sites, country walks. Parking is within 100m.
Car not needed
How to get there
Airport: Carcassonne: 14.9 mi
Railway: Carcassone: 13.0 mi
Major airlines fly to Toulouse and some budget airlines in Europe come to Carcassonne. Cars can be hired from either airport or Carcassonne train station. If you do not want a car you can get a taxi from Carcassonne to Caunes for about 50E. A car is a great idea, though, as it will allow you to explore the countryside and visit wineries.
