Port Minervois is a quiet and pleasant holiday resort, which seems like a small private village made of nice villas for 4 to 10 persons, built in the colourful Provencal style, and that you can rent for a week; or just for a few nights, which makes it very convenient.
It is ideally located in the small village of Homps, at a really short walking distance of the famous Midi Canal, and to a small lake, where it's very pleasant to go for a walk, a pic-nique, or a tour by boat. In a quiet countryside area, Homps is still only roughly 30 min away from Carcassonne and its middle age castle, but also from Narbonne and the Mediterranean Sea.
The Port Minervois residence by itself, is a also a great and safe place where to stay. I've personally rented a house for 6 persons, and appreciated to find all the necessary there, be it to cook, enjoy a meal on the large terrasse, or simply have some rest. The villas are comfortable, simply but nicely decorated, clear, modern, and of easy access. The only smal negative point, is that the villas are touching each other, and that your garden may not be that well separated from the one of your neighbour, which is not ideal if you want some intimacy.
Apart from that, the village is organized a bit on the model of a good camping, and as such offers many services: a small grocery, a bar snack, play grounds for young children, teenagers and adults. It also offers a nice but maybe slightly tiny swimming-pool, a fitness center, a hammam and a jaccuzzi. So, basically all what you need to spend a few relaxing days in this nice area of the South of France!
One might just regret that everything there has a price, even renting a barbecue, or enjoying some time in the hammam or the jaccuzzi. However, for what it offers, prices are still relatively affordable.
