Caunes Minervois house description

The House: La Maison du Cure

Set in the winding streets below the Abbey, this house is in the heart of the village. It boasts a secluded garden, balcony with views of the river, ceilings a la provencale and three airy bedrooms.

The Area

Close to the world heritage site of La Cite in Carcassone, the medieval village of Caunes is the ideal location for your holiday. Lying on the eastern edge of the sun-soaked minervois vineyards with a backdrop formed by the Black Mountains, it offers a quintessential view of French life.

The village is famous for its Benedictine abbey, its winding streets and for the local pink marble. There are art galleries, pottery classes and demonstrations, weekly music concerts in the Abbey grounds and jazz nights in the caveau under the medieval Abbey itself.

There are three markets a week in Caunes, on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays – even though it is only a village of 1400 inhabitants. And nearby are walking trails to explore, vineyards to visit, deep river gorges, ruined Cathar fortresses and in only 40 minutes you can bask on the sandy beaches of the Mediterranean. Spain is only a day trip away but for those who just want to relax and soak in the pleasures of the Minervois,
Caunes offers a glimpse of times gone by with its old stones, pretty squares, fountains, gardens and a hump back bridge.

The Community

Caunes Minervois is a typical French village - but there is an active community of Americans, Canadians and Australians who choose to winter in this lovely tranquil area. People are friendly and for those who choose a long let - we will make sure you are introduced to the local community if you wish.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2009

                      About the owner: I have had a long love affair with France every since my student days. I studied the language in the UK and in France and finally realised my dream of buying and restoring an old village house in the south of the country. Please come and share it with me!

                      Why the Owner Chose Caunes Minervois:
                      Caunes is a lovely community - small and friendly and welcoming to everyone. Near both the mountains and the beaches and surrounded by lovely vineyards it is an idyllic spot to spend some time and relax into the French way of living and dining!

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      This house was owned for many years by an old lady who lived all her life in the village. I bought it 3 years ago and have refurbished it adding a large kitchen diner where the old garage and storehouse used to be on the ground floor. The house dates from the 1800s and the ceiling has exposed beams and local stone makes the walls. From the original cubby hole kitchen I created a snug, added two bedrooms and a bathroom on the top floor where before lay only storage, and completed the project by building a balcony which traps the early morning sun. The garden is a reall boon as outside space is rare in small French villages. It is walled and private with climbing roses and wisteria and room to sit and eat or read and sunbathe.
