Client Comments

A dream stay in this haven of peace...isolated from the world yet in the middle of the village, we found it difficult to leave the house to go and visit the beautiful Minervois. For 8 people it was very comfortable in the 100m2 living room, the 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms, the top-notch summer kitchen and the sun shelters in the courtyard. The most friendly welcome from the owners with a good bottle of Pouzols wine. Lots of very wise advice on where to visit. This address is at the top of comfort and charm and although the photos are beautiful, the reality is even more convincing. Only one desire to return there as soon as possible and even in periods out of season because the region is also very beautiful in September during the harvest period. And to finalise we loved it!  From the house book July
Seven of us had the most magical week-long stay at the Maison Minervois.  The house is gorgeous, with ancient walls but modern appliances and comforts.  The town is charming and quiet, but just a short drive from many sites and activities.  Andre was there to answer any questions and to provide assistance at a moment’s notice.  The pool is clean and a lovely sanctuary on hot days.  We were enchanted by the “indoor-outdoor” living spaces which crated a very open feeling and could be accessed through glass doors.  This house is truly unique and special, we hope to return some day! Clea and family - July 
Nous avons passe un moment merveilleux dans votre belle maison!  Merci beaucoup pour votre hospitalite!  Nous esperons revenir un jour.  (We had a marvellous stay in your lovely house. Thank you very much for your hospitality. We hope to return one day).July 2018, Clea, Peter, Stanley, Alvy (New York), Dan, Annie et Olive (Chicago)
We had a lovely stay, the villa was stunning and the owner was very welcoming.Amber, September 
We just stayed at Maison Minervois, a group of 6 adults, and loved it.  What a perfect villa and so beautiful.  Please pass on to Andre and his wife how much we enjoyed their property.  It was a perfect size, lovely pool and yard and it had great beds!  Andre brought us a list of places to visit and restaurants to try.  Very helpful.  We also loved visiting Languedoc and the Aude.  So very pretty and interesting. Thank you. Charlie and Jane, Mike and Liz, Jane and Jim, September 
We had a wonderful time thank you, very sad to leave!Beatrice, July 2016
Just wanted to say a big thank you for your help in organising the villa for us, A4 Maison Minervois. The week we had there was amazing and the owners were just delightful. Leesa & Damon
