Friendly, quiet place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We were very happy with our choice of Christine's place to stay for our time in Caunes-Minervois. Close to all the amenities of the town but in a clean and quiet environment that made our stay very enjoyable. Christine was very welcoming.

From here we did many great walks into the countryside. We explored all the the interesting places in nearby towns and villages. We explored Carcassonne. Limoux, Revel, Castre, Saissac, Bram, Mirepoix, Fanjeaux, Montréal, and many Neolithic sites like Dolmen des Fades.

The Aude is a remarkable place. And Caunes is a remarkable village. It is a completely functioning village with stores and resources to meet our needs. It has a number of excellent restaurants, a very active cafe, an ATM, and markets.

Lovely location with a great owner.

  • 5 of 5

First off the owner - Christine was an absolute gem. We were staying for 7 nights and on the sixth day were notified by Ryanair that our return flight was cancelled. Christine arranged for us to stay an extra 2 nights and even printed out our new boarding passes for the Saturday flight. The house is located just of the edge of the centre of the town with views across the town, easy walk to shops and restaurants and very quiet. We were working on a house in the centre of the old town so having a fully equipped place to return to in the evening for a shower and being able to wash clothes was really useful.

The house has everything you'll probably need including WiFi and though not upmarket is spotlessly clean with comfy bed, heating and a great rental at the rate. Going back in four weeks time - says it all!

Quiet well appointed property close to amenities and sites

  • 4 of 5

Christine could not have been more helpful, even coming back from a friends party when we had difficulty locating the property on the first night. Property itself is well appointed with good kitchen facilities and plenty of space. Lots to see locally and there are a number of nice restaurants in the village, especially Emilie's.

Only down side is mattress needs to be replaced as has a dip in the middle and property would benefit from it's own BBQ, there is a shared one.

Owner's Response: I welcome all of my customers comments. The bed has been replaced. I am sorry we missed it while preparing the apartement, unfortuned the damage to bed frame was not noted by the prior guests. Anytime their is a problem I attempt to address it quickly.

Très bon séjour

  • 5 of 5

Très bon séjour à Caunes Minervois petit village calme et près des grands axes, ce qui permet de visiter la région qui est très belle. Très bon accueil (avec petits cadeaux de bienvenue) et tout au long du séjour Mme Pradal n'hésite pas à donner de très bons conseils. L'appartement est calme, propre et bien équipé. Si l'occasion se présente je n'hésiterai pas à recommander cette location.

Bel endroit pour la détente et nos visites de Carcassonne et Narbonne

  • 4 of 5

Charmant appartement au rez de chaussé de la propriétaire qui est très aimable et qui s'assure que nous soyons bien.

Belles grandes pièces, vous ne vous sentirez pas à l'étroit. Réellement tranquille mais seulement à environ 20 minutes de Carcassonne en auto. Le seul point négatif, s'il en est un; nous avons trouvé que le matelas était trop dur à notre gout ! Mais c'est une question de gout.
