"Excellent house in wonderful village"
This was our sixth year staying in Homps but our first year in this house. As other reviewers have said the house is excellent and well equipped to a high standard. The owners have clearly put a lot of thought into having everything you need for a great holiday. It was a bonus to have air conditioning as it was very hot when we were there. As stated above this was the sixth time we have stayed in Homps and each year there have been changes in the village all to the good. You would find it hard to find such a good selection of restaurants in a small village anywhere. A great holiday.

"Spacious, comfortable and well equipped with a really good pool"
there were 6 of us with a baby and we enjoyed a lovely week at La Pepiniere -plenty of space for us all and great places to visit not too far away. Several nice bars by the canal for an aperitif in the evening and a very well stocked little supermarket at the filling station.

"Fantastic 2 weeks in Homps 13-27 July"
The villa is superb, modern,clean, and well equipped. The air conditioning is good, particularly at night.
Wonderful peaceful location in the village, close to the supermarket and the canal. The pool is a good size and the garden catches the sun all day. The weather was fantastic, mid 30's most days & we did reach 40 degrees for a couple of days, the breeze that is often there is a blessing.
The area is beautiful, mountains, vines, picturesque villages and the canal. Lots to see and do close by, the barge ride on the canal (booked in Homps) is a lovely way to spend 2 hours on a hot sunny afternoon, we hired bikes in Homps and road along the canal path which was great fun.
We would recommend visits to Minerve (20mins), Carcassonne (40mins) which has to be scene to be appreciated, and the Cathar ruins at Lastours (12km north of Carcassonne) which are breathtaking from the viewpoint at Belvedere (2 euros to enter but well worth it) the coach route via Salsigne is slightly longer (4km) but avoids the very narrow and steep road up from the village. The 9 locks at Fonseranes (near Beziers) are worth a visit and wait if you can for a boat to go through to see them in action.
A brilliant holiday, we will definitely be coming back & thoroughly recommend La Pepiniere.

"Spacious, comfortable villa with a superb, private pool"
This is a large, comfortable, well equipped villa. There are four, large bedrooms, two bathrooms and a kitchen and lounge well big enough to support the number of beds in the property. There is off road parking at the front and the rear of the property has a superb pool, plenty large enough to swim in and play in. We were joined by others and with six adults in the pool there was still lots of room. The pool and patio areas are quite private. We were very comfortable there and would recommend it to anyone wanting to stay in the area.
Homps is a delightful little town. There are several restaurants and cafes along side the canal, a couple of minutes walk away. The little local supermarket is very well stocked and reasonably priced. Olonzac (5 minutes by car or a pleasant 25 minute stroll along a lane) has more shops and cafes and a superb open market every Tuesday. The canal provides walks, cycle rides, boat hire and canal barge trips all from Homps. Lac Jouarre is 15 minutes walk away. If you want to drive then there are endless places to visit including the beach.
It's our second visit to Homps and it won't be our last,
