We asked the owner Robert Clarke to tell us a little about Villa Mimarmel and this is what he said.
Mimarmel is a contemporary, three bedroom, two bathroom, single storey villa with its own private pool in a wonderful secluded garden in Ginestas.
Ginestas is a quiet village with all the essential amenities and within walking distance of The Canal du Midi. There are seven airports within a two hour drive and the channel ports are about a ten hour drive.
The villa sleeps six and a cot can be provided if required. The villa is extremely well equipped and facilities include an American style fridge / freezer, dishwasher, washing machine, large TV with UK satellite channels, wifi and barbecue.
There is a covered terrace and an array of colour all year round in the Mediterranean garden with plenty of areas in which to laze in either the sun or the shade.
The village centre is only a few minutes walk away where there is a boulangerie, tabac, general store, wine bar, two further bars / restaurants, bank with ATM, pharmacy, hairdresser and post office. The neighbouring villages of Ventenac and Le Somail are a longer walk away either along the road or through the vineyards and along the banks of the Canal du Midi. The nearest supermarket is a short drive away.
The villa is well placed to visit numerous places of interest including the beautiful medieval walled city of Carcassonne, the Cathar village of Minerve, the ancient Roman city of Narbonne the pretty market towns of Pezenas and St Chinian and some beautiful sandy beaches.
