“Absolutely fantastic with everything you could possibky need”
Reviewed August 3, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

I have just returned from an amazing stay at La Pepiniere in Homps with my daughter and her husband. Our third stay in this property and when we heard after our second visit that it was changing hands we were concerned that it would go 'down hill' Quite the contrary, it is better than ever and such a relaxing, welcoming house in which to spend your holiday.
There is everything you could possibly need in the kitchen, all so clean and tidy. The beds are extremely comfortable with high quality sheets etc and lovely big bath towels in addition to beach type towels for the pool. Homps is a great village with excellent restaurants and a local garage selling bread etc. On Tuesdays there is a brilliant market in the neighbouring town of Olonzac supplying endless varieties of local produce.
Whilst sitting by the pool I played a game with myself trying to think of anything that would make the house any better and could not think of a single thing except the provision of a hand rail or even the rope type bannister on the stairs. As an elderly person, I would find that reassuring but cannot think of any thing else that would make this lovely property even better for a holiday. Needless to say, we have booked again for next year!

“Excellent holiday villa in a relaxing location.”
Reviewed July 1, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

We stayed with another couple in this lovely holiday villa during the second week of June, and found the property, spacious, comfortable and well equipped (the air conditioning is a real plus point) with an excellent pool and poolside area with shaded dining area and barbecue.

Homps, a relatively quiet village set on the Canal du Midi, set in the middle of the Minervois wine region is an ideal base for exploring this lovely part of France. It is laid back with a couple of nice canal side bars and restaurants yet within easy reach of the Mediterranean and attractions such as Carcassonne and Minerve and the towns of Bezeirs and Narbonne (with its wonderful indoor market).

All in all a very enjoyable week in a superb villa. We have stayed in many holiday homes in France over the years and this one is one of the (if not the) best..

I should also point out that communications with the owner Jim were excellent.

“The Perfect Holiday Rental”
Reviewed June 15, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

We were a family of 6 (plus 5 month old baby) and rented the villa for a week. How we wish that we had booked for longer! We found La Pepiniere to be the perfect holiday rental - we could not have asked for more. Everything was just as we imagined it to be - much better than the photos depicted. The welcome basket was a very thoughtful gesture - as was the souvenir tea towel. The lovely pool was much enjoyed by all, even baby had a dip! The whole villa is very well equipped especially the kitchen area. We could not fault the perfectly laundered white sheets and towels as well as the cleanliness of the property. We know the area fairly well, but Homps is by far our favourite place. Most certainly we will return as soon as is possible.

“Absolutely fantastic!! Bring on next year!!”
Reviewed August 27, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We were a group of 9 in total and had the most enjoyable holiday ever, so much so that we have rebooked for next year. Ideal location for exploring the mountains or travelling to the coast to visit Narbonne/ Gruissan. Carcassonne is only a 20 minute drive.
The house is so well equipped. Everything has been provided to make your stay as comfortable as possible. The rooms are huge, the beds are comfortable, the lovely crisp linen was great to get into after a long day exploring and the air conditioning in all rooms was just superb. Being able to do all our washing and not go home with heaps was brilliant and the kitchen had every appliance and utensil you could think of so it was fantastic being able to cook at home and enjoy our food by the poolside. Beautiful clean swimming pool was a welcome addition that the children loved.
Homps itself has everything you need. The garage has a well equipped supermarket attached with a great butchers counter. There are a few bars and restaurants if you want to eat out, and are all within a five minute walk of the house.
If you want to trek a bit further Olonzac is lovely with a big market on a Tuesday where you can pick up a bargain. La Redorte is a ten minute drive along the carcassonne road if you need the Intermarche...

I can think of nothing else that I would have needed to make our holiday any better. Jim is very accommodating and willing to help with any queries you have. Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us!! We will see you next year!!
