Despite its fairy tale appearance, Carcassonne has all the conveniences of a modern city with shops of every kind, supermarkets, cinemas and an abundance of fine restaurants.


Caunes-Minervois is a medieval village of steep, twisting, narrow streets and sand-colored stone buildings surrounding the great 8th Century Abbey that lies at its heart. It nestles among the vineyards at the foot of the Montagne Noire, the southernmost area of the Massif Centrale.

A walk through the village reveals many Renaissance facades. Vestiges of even older buildings can be seen, including parts of the medieval fortifications. Two ancient public laundries, fed by the local streams, are still in use.

Although the village is small, with no more than 1400 inhabitants, it boasts two restaurants, two bistros, a pharmacy, two doctors' offices, and a lawyer.

There are also two grocery stores, two bakeries, a butcher, a gas station, two hairdressers, a post office and a general store Below the imposing fortifications is Ville Basse, the "low town." Here the open market offers wonderful seasonal produce, fruits, vegetables, flowers, regional cheeses, smoked fresh meats and the delicious locally bred duck. Regional busses make the short trip from Carcassonne to Caunes-Minervois several times each day.
