  • I knew the original owners who developed the old bakery into a B&B, Terry and Lois Link. Might you be able to tell me anything about when they sold the place and moved away? We all knew each other in San Francisco, California. Thank you, Thomas O’Leary
    Hello, Terry & Lois still live in the village. They live on the out side of the village going up the mountain towards Citou. I can get a message to them if you like. Regards Ian

    Hi and thank you for your question. We don't have any bedrooms on the ground floor but I believe that another property in Caunes-Minervois might have... have a look at La Marbrerie Hotel Caunes-Minervois.

Janelle and Bruce
L’Ancienne Boulangerie chambre d’hôtes was once the bakery for the Abbey of Caunes-Minervois, a medieval village in the south of France. This boutique bed and breakfast is centrally located, only a two minute walk to all restaurants and bars. The World Heritage listed fortified city of Carcassonne and delightful Canal du Midi are a twenty minute drive past numerous picturesque vineyards. All five guest rooms are thoughtfully decorated with artwork and collectables from local brocantes and markets. Continental breakfast comprising of local produce and fresh croissants from the local boulangerie is served in the charming dining room. Select a book from the library and unwind on the large sunny terrace; or in winter, curl up on the velvet sofa next to the fireplace in the salon. There are many other options for you to feel at home on your relaxing holiday, from gourmet picnic hampers to delicious meals from local restaurants made available for you to dine in at L’Ancienne Boulangerie – you will never want to leave.
The owners Janelle and Bruce are from Australia. Janelle has a background in hotel management with experience as the event manager for Hyatt Hotels and Resorts, and as general manager of a 250 room hotel in Sydney. Her passion is for scouring brocantes and vide greniers to find beautiful items to decorate the house. Her other interest is attending events with the local wine club to sample the amazing wines of the region. Bruce is a marine pilot and loves to talk all things boats, he is also a big fan of the local wines! They have co-owned a small gîte also in Caunes-Minervois for the last five years and have grown to love the village so much they made it their home. Also enjoying the house is their friendly five year old groodle Max.
Located in an area of natural beauty with vineyards, sunflowers and sunshine, the Canal du Midi and nearby Carcassonne. This is part of France that still retains its rural feel. There are six restaurants/bars in the village and many more in the surrounding area. The village is at the base of the black mountains which is literally a ten minute walk from the house with its outstanding views and nature. The beach is just under an hour away with miles of sand and never crowded in the height of the summer. You can also visit the cities of Beziers and Narbonne in less than an hour. The new indoor and outdoor swimming pool with sun loungers in the next village is perfect for that cooling dip.
