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". It is located in the very centre of the village with a terrace overlooking the ninth century abbey.
You will be staying in the friendly and resource-full village of Caunes Minervois [map], 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.
Planning is currently underway for the 2008 summer season. Weeks will be available from June 28 to August 2. Reserve as soon as possible. Blocks have already been spoken for. Don't miss your window of opportunity. Check out the website.
