“We didn't want to leave!”
Reviewed September 15, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

A really delightful and historic property three minutes walk from the boulangerie / bread shop in a charming, sleepy village.

Number 5 is a bright, airy, spacious town house in the middle of Ginestas. The village has a genuine countryside feel to it, as well as the bread shop ( fantastic fresh baguettes, croissants and pains au chocolat) there is a village shop, a town hall and several different restaurants including a bistrot and a pizzeria crossed with a finer dining option which was very good indeed.

The house has a noble feel to it. The front door is a wonderful, wooden, double affair with a complicated 19th century lock. We loved the huge stone staircase - a period centrepiece - and the sizeable rooms, some of which are en-suite. All had great, shuttered and insect screened, sash windows. The gigantic roof conversion room was incredible - has to be seen to be believed. The kids appropriated it as 'their' living, sleeping and playing space, but the room would be a great space for the whole group together for a winter treat. Good Wifi connection in the whole house - strongest signal is in the top room.

We were 9 people, from the age of 7 to 70, and there would easily have been room for more as we only used 4 of the 6 spacious bedrooms - mixture of twins and doubles (the property has 7 bathrooms and toilets!).

The kitchen was well appointed ( spacious fridge / freezer, dishwasher, hob, coffee machine and lots of storage) and the dining room/ sitting room ( two big sofas and TV ) just fitted our party.

The wonderfully proportioned pool was a complete pleasure and the whole 'yard' / garden area became a perfect day-time activity/ chill out area. In the evenings we dined by candlelight outside at the large all weather table by the pool.

There are two supermarkets and plenty of wineries within a 10 minute drive where you can stock up on fine local wines.

The region is rich in medieval history, Narbonne and Carcassonne are only a short trip away and the Canal du Midi offers lovely views and peaceful lunch places; especially Le Somail was a memorable place for ice creams and a beautiful surprise bookshop which has been there for decades.

The house was the core of our holliday and we loved to relax and spend time "at home" there.

The only thing we would suggest is that the owners add a colander to the well-equipped kitchen but we are already saving up for our return trip and will happily bring our own next time if necessary.
