Situated in the heart of Ginestas village in the Minervois, this Maison de Maitre property built in the early 1800s, is very spacious with a lot of traditional features: marble fireplaces, original floors. Its renovation has been done to a high standard while preserving the style of the house.
The bedrooms are large and spacious, and are either twin bedded or have a large double bed (extra cot/child's bed also available). Most have en-suite facilities plus shower with the use of a Jacuzzi bath in the large main bathroom. Even though the winters here are mild and the Aude region boasts an average 300 sunny days a year, the house is centrally heated just in case! An evening meal served with wine is also available if requested in advance.
There is a beautiful rooftop terrace with stunning views across the countryside. Next to the roof terrace there is a solarium/summer sitting room to relax in. For more energetic guests there is also the use of a gym.
Ginestas is a lively village and throughout the year there are festivals and activities. The Canal du Midi flows past the edge of the village, and there is spectacular countryside to enjoy walking through, and maybe do some sketching and painting or simply take in nature and the beautiful scenery. Wine tasting is available in the many chateaux and vineyards in the surrounding Minervois/Corbieres wine producing areas.
Within an hour from Ginestas are the historic cities of Carcassonne, Narbonne and Beziers, the Mediterranean sea and its beautiful sandy beaches, the Haut Languedoc National Park, medieval villages such as Minerve, abbeys and ruined castles to explore.
