We were very satisfied with the house. Everyone had the necessary privacy and space. The area was very beautiful. St.-Chinian is a cozy town with a nice market twice a week where you could get everything. We also had a nice meal there.

Happy to come back
Everything was arranged quickly despite our real last minute reservation 1 day in advance. The house was wonderfully clean and received with a nice chilled bottle of ros?. We enjoyed it and are happy to come back.

Beautiful house, a haven of peace
The house is located in Gimios, a small hamlet in the middle of the vineyards. There are beautiful walks all around. The house is spacious with a large games room, ping pong table. You will appreciate the taste of the the local wine, Muscat of Saint Jean de Minervois, whilst you are sitting at the edge of the swimming pool… ensuring calm and relaxation.
