Les Arques Gite is adjacent to a small vineyard that stretches to the Canal du Midi near to the picturesque village of Homps. This is a quintessentially French location in the sunny Languedoc region, within a short drive of the sandy beaches of the Mediterranean near Narbonne and the spectacular Cité of Carcassonne. The property dates back to the 1850's and the renovation has retained the traditional character of the stone barn with oak windows, doors and the original timber roof beams, combined with modern facilities to make your stay comfortable. The excellent location allows guests to abandon the car and ramble for 15mins along the Canal to Homps to enjoy the scenery & numerous restaurants or, in the opposite direction to Olonzac to experience the colourful local market, bars, restauran...Les Arques Gite is adjacent to a small vineyard that stretches to the Canal du Midi near to the picturesque village of Homps.
