Quiet Little Town on the Canal du Midi

If you want relaxation you've come to the right spot. Homps is directly situated on the Canal du Midi and makes for a nice base to explore the region. There are many lovely medieval towns nearby to explore.

The lovely Canal du Midi

It runs right through town, so you can catch a cruise or take nice leisurely walks. Either way the canal is very pleasent and soothing. I found it very, very relaxing.

Great B&B makes Homps even more wonderful

Please read my restaurant and hotel tip. This B&B was fabulous and made my stay in Homps very enjoyable.

  • Pros:Relaxing, quiet town on the pretty Canal du midi

    The B&B sounded so good I decided to try to book. They are no longer a B&B. So sad. The bright side is that the restaurant is still going strong so we'll try to visit that. Great Tip.

    What a delightful set of pages about Homps and the surrounding area. Quaint, picturesque...your narrative is perceptive, candid, and captivating.
