About the neighbourhood
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. The village, of 1600 inhabitants, has all services a visitor needs, and the historic center is fascinating to explore. We have an abbey, founded in the 9th century; it houses the local tourist bureaus.
