The Region

You will be able to experience living as a French family. The village is completely off the main road, boasting a medieval section and an old Abbey Church from the ninth century.

The house is built of stone and dates in part from the early 1400's. It has 3 floors renovated with tiles, white plaster walls and all the conveniences of a modern North American or European home including two bathrooms and a "powder room".

You will be staying in the pleasant village of Caunes Minervois, in Languedoc-Roussillon. The countryside is almost totally given over to vineyards. Caunes-Minervois is at the north end of the coastal plain, 50 minutes by car from the Mediterranean. The local vista varies from that of the 14th to the 20th centuries - always interesting. Only 5 minutes to the north are the spectacular mountains and gorges of Haut Languedoc.
