Perfect holiday gite

5 of 5
John and Wendy are fantastic, really welcoming and made us feel very at home. The gite we stated in has great original features with lovely views over towards the canal and vineyard and beautiful garden. Beds were amazingly comfortable and very big as well as lovely bedroom furniture with a nice window in the ceiling which was nice to have open at night. The kitchen and lounge were a good size and nice high ceilings with original beams and a good quality kitchen. The area around the gite is quiet and calm and the pool is lovely and clean with nice seating to lounge around in, but it's only 5 mins walk to a bakery with fresh bread daily or a little further to go to homps or olonzac for some nice restaurants and bars so a perfect location. Absolutely perfect stay and would recommend to anyone wanting to go.

Clean, comfortable and relaxed

5 of 5
We booked both properties as a large family group and were very happy with our choice. I stayed in the smaller 2 bedroom gite which was spacious and very clean and comfortable with a lovely view of the canals from the windows. We found Wendy had thought of everything her visitors might need to make their stay comfortable and relaxed. The kitchen amenities were well thought out for self catering and the selection of books, videos, table tennis and swimming pool mean you don't need to go anywhere. We walked to the bakery and into Homps every day where there were some good restaurants and cafes. We hope to return again.
