“La Pepiniere ideal home in an ideal village”

Reviewed 25 Nov 2015

La Pepiniere is like a Tardis, you are amazed at what facilities and comfort lay within. The welcome pack was a lovely surprise, as was the detailed list of places to visit and things to do. The array of utilities are second to none, you want for nothing. In the afternoon and evening you can sit in the front sun lounge which is lovely if you like a snooze before going out. We were lucky with the weather too, which meant we could make use of the outside pool area by having a BBQ and use of the sun loungers. The village itself provides you with plenty of eating establishments along the canal as well as pleasant walks.

“Excellent property in an ideal, quiet location.”

Reviewed 30 Oct 2015

Homps is a quiet village but being on the Canal du Midi gives the added bonus of a selection of good restaurants within walking distance of the house. The surrounding area has many picturesque and historical sights to visit. The information pack received when renting the house is the most detailed we have ever had. The house is equipped to a very high standard with everything you could possibly want, including air conditioning throughout. It also has a large number of place settings for larger family groups. Our teenagers really appreciated the broadband and television with English channels.

“Perfect place - quiet location yet an easy walk to all we needed.”

Reviewed 18 Aug 2015

We were a group of 6 adults and had a fabulous time using La Pepiniere as a base exploring on foot, cycles (delivered to the door!) and a couple of car trips or just chilling by the pool. The local mini-market provided a more than an adequate range to meet our needs and the village baker even provided fresh gluten free bread on a daily basis. The town has a good range of bars and restaurants to keep you fed and watered whether you are looking for a quick snack or something a little more high cuisine. The house is so well equipped it's hard to think of anything that would have improved our stay. We would definitely book again .

“Fantastic”

Reviewed 16 Aug 2015

This villa is simply amazing - it's well equipped (the owners have thought of everything) , modern, clean and enough space and equipment for at least 8 people. The owner will assist you with any queries you may have about the area or the villa - nothing is too much trouble . The area is quiet but there are enough little bars and restaurants to keep you busy . Can highly recommend this villa with its own very private pool and sunbathing area - the only problem is it will be hard to find another one of this standard in the future xx

“Top quality rental house”

Reviewed 10 Jun 2015

The house was very well equipped with good quality furnishings. It was spacious and had everything that we needed and more. We enjoyed the location and the local shop was very useful as well as the restaurants within walking distance.

“Everything you could possibly need from a holiday let and more!”

Reviewed 27 May 2015

A lovely property which is extremely well equipped. Really large rooms. Very light downstairs. Having two bedrooms upstairs and two bedrooms downstairs means two families or pair of friends can have the privacy of separate areas of the house. Very comfortable beds Swimming pool large and very clean.

“Excellent house in wonderful village”

Reviewed 25 Jul 2013

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”

Reviewed 10 Jul 2013

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”

Reviewed 7 Aug 2012

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”

Reviewed 24 Jul 2012

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,
