Bed & Breakfast
Sous l'Olivier is a charming 'stop off' with its lovely sunny patio overlooking the garden and private pool. In this peaceful setting breakfast is served with the Black Mountain as a backdrop.
The property was originally a wine-maker's house and it has a wealth of original features and exposed stone walls. Some of the most distinctive, decorative features of the house include pink marble which is famous and mined locally at Caunes-Minervois.
The house has 3 double bedrooms, two with double beds and 1 with 2 large single beds, all with en-suite shower rooms.
