We stayed at L'Orchidee for a wedding in the village. Margaret made us feel welcome from the moment we arrived and nothing was too much trouble for her. This is a lovely place which has an air of authentic French living, even though Margaret is English. We were able to enjoy the charming village as well as being made to... More

We were guests at a wedding at the Chateau De Puits Es Pratx (see my separate review of it) and Margaret was a wonderful host with plenty of stories to keep us entertained. Her B&B is very comfortable. Our bathroom was great (we shared it with some friends) and the bath was excellent! Margaret was very gracious despite us being... More

The most beautiful home stay / B&B with a gorgeous roof terrace. Margaret, your host, has the most excellent local knowledge and goes above and beyond with her service. Her communication prior to arrival is excellent and if you are in this part of France, I recommend a visit to Ginestas and L'Orchidee

What a brilliant time. The house is beautiful, traditional French decorations. Gorgeous solarium and roof terrace - the opportunity to have a late night drink on the quite roof terrace looking over the town was too much to decline every night! My room was perfect, the bathroom was great. All and all a lovely stay. All the best to you... More

L'orchidee offers a high quality accomodation, a wonderful setting in a village close to the Canal du Midi, and a hostess whose care and consideration for her guests is second to none. The location offers easy access to Carcassone, Narbonne and the Spanish border. It is truly lovely!

We recently stayed at this delightful B&B in Ginestas, the owner Margaret, is a very kind, pleasant and helpful lady who went out of her way to make us feel welcome. The rooms were clean, comfortable and tastefully furnished. I would have no hesitation of staying there again and certainly would recommend it to anyone planning to visit the Ginestas... More

L'Orchidee B&B is in the heart of the listed part of Ginestas village in the Minervois, it is a Maison de Maitre property built in the early 1800s, it is very spacious with a lot of traditional features, beautifully renovated preserving the style of the house. Madame Barry is happy to share the history of the house, and the area.... More
