La Caunette - L'Eglise Notre-Dame de L'Assomption

Dates from the 11th century

The last weeks of August have brightened with lovely clear skies and that particular kind of light that attracts artists, photographers, and lovers of the good life. The lovely church at La Caunette, is blessed by the neighboring vineyard with roses and grapes glowing ready to be picked.

La Caunette is on the Minervois road to Minerve,- site of a Cathar tragedy, a pretty village on the Cesse valley.

La Caunette boasts a fine restaurant and a bar/restaurant - La Cave and Cafe de la Place. September and October promise great colours as well as a clarity of light that is great for walking, and just viewing nature in all its glory.
