Plenty of room for the 4 of us. We ate outside by the pool when we were at the house. Pool was lovely in the 32C heated August sun. Lovely ornate features inside. Fantastic lightening storm one night. 5 min walk to a lovely bakery. We walked to Minervois, along the canal and back through the vineyard - 5 miles...

Wow what a place! A small group of us visited Ginestas for our friends wedding. The house was perfect, spacious, great swimming pool and looked after so well. The host was most helpful when needed and the whole experience was excellent - we hope to return next year.

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.
