Additional Location Information
We are in a quiet cul-de-sac in the historic center of the village. Parking is in a public parking area about 70 metres (75 yards) away. In front of the village, the wine plains of the Midi stretch into the distance; the Black Mountain rises immediately behind. Caunes has had a marble quarry, still producing pink/red marble, since Roman days. Within 20km are two World Heritage-listed sites: the citadel at Carcassonne, and the Canal du Midi. Just as close are good limestone caves and the ruined Cathar fortresses of Minerve and Lastours. Of course, great French restaurants are nearby.

What Past Guests Are Saying
Home away from home.
On arrival the house was well set up with made up beds. There were only two of us and we had plenty of space to spread out and relax. The village is very quaint and interesting with narrow winding streets and lanes. There are sufficient shops to get by and a fabulous restaurant called Hotel d'Alibert
We enjoyed watching the grapes being taken in to be made into wine at a small local winery opposite the house. There was plenty of opportunity to practice speaking French.
