Maison du Midi

The property has 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and sleeps 6 in comfort. It has been thoughtfully and stylishly renovated  and benefits from a new kitchen and new bathrooms, whilst still retaining many of the original features of the house. It’s just a few steps away from the centre of village and the attractive shops where you can buy bread, meat and all your day-to-day needs as well as enjoy eating and drinking out in a choice of locations.

If you enjoy exploring, walking, wine, sight-seeing, cycling, and the French way of life – then this is an ideal property for your holiday. Caunes-Minervois is famous for the local pink marble – and you can watch the local marble sculptors in the village. There are also art galleries and pottery classes and demonstrations. There are 3 markets a week in Caunes – on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays – even though it is a village of only 1400 inhabitants.

This village house has a narrow facade to the street which belies the overall size of the property. The terraces and gravelled courtyard garden at the rear of the property provide excellent opportunities for relaxing outside with a book and a glass of wine, dining al fresco on balmy evenings, and sun-bathing. The kitchen terrace, the barbecue and the courtyard garden are accessible from the main street (via the side alley) as well as from the kitchen.

Bottles of the local wine, selected by the owner, await the arrival of guests to welcome them to the house.
