Interaction with guests
I have an obsession about personal service, not just machines with endless tape recordings an options and waiting 20 minutes to be answered! I always make sure that I or my agents are available at the end of my mobile if needed. My motto is 'personal holidays with personal service'.

About the neighbourhood
Ginestas is a friendly village set well away from any many roads. It has a strong community of its own with a couple of shops, a café, a bar and a restaurant. the buildings throughout the village are traditional and old. You really are in a French traditional village! There are chateaux, domains and other medieval villages all around.

Turn left out of the house and you are literally in a vineyard within 100metres! The historic Canal du Midi is a mile away. Lush countryside with vineyards all around and views across to the Haute Languedoc just a few miles away. On a clear day it is even possible to see the snow-capped Pyrenees in the distance.
