All information gathered first-hand, since 1995



There's a beautiful red marble in this area, that was quarried here by the Romans and through Medieval times. The marble can be seen around the town, in building materials and sculptures scattered just about everywhere [horse-head photo].

For cafés in town, we liked the Grand Fountain Bar and Xxxx Hotel, with its shady terrace around the obelisk fountain, in the center of the village.

Just down the Rue d'Aiguebelle from the café is the Jean Christophe Aterous wine shop, located in a cool, dark Medieval room where you can do wine tasting hosted by the elderly and very active nth-generation representative of the winery.

Caunes-Minervois Commerce

Although Caunes-Minervois has some cafés and its several excellent restaurants, there isn't much in the way of shopping available. For groceries, there's the ubiquitous bakery (boulangerie), and we found a nice, but very little "epicerie" (grocery store) up in the old town on Rue de la Charité.
