It also has two cafes, a tabac, dentist, two restaurants, three Doctors and a chemist.

There are approx 900 residential properties in Caunes Minervois. Of these, almost 20% are second homes. With such a good selection of local commerce it’s easy to see why Caunes Minervois is a popular place to have a holiday home.

Of these 900 residential properties a heady 91% are houses. As with most French villages in the south, most of the properties in the village are larger houses of four beds or more. These make up just over 50% of the residential units. The next biggest sector is taken by three bedroom properties, which account for almost 30%. The remaining 20% is made up of studios, one bedrooms and two bedroom properties. Rather unusually for a southern French village, the number of studio apartments is actually greater than the number of one bedroom apartments. Perhaps this could be to do with the proximity to Carcassonne? At only 22 kms away, it makes a commute for students quite a realistic proposition.

Being within easy reach of Carcassonne also makes this an ideal place for a holiday home. Thanks to Ryanair, Carcassonne has direct flights to both the UK and Ireland with flight times of around two hours.
