“La Bomba is the kind of place you’re reluctant to review honestly in case it leads to the place being booked up next time you want to visit. Perfectly positioned on the edge of a sleepy Lauragais village, if the temptations of nearby markets and vineyards weren’t so great it would been easy to stray no further than a few yards from the swimming pool for the duration of our stay. The fields of sunflowers flanking the farmhouse leave you wondering whether you’ve woken up in the middle of a picture postcard.” James O, Aug 2017

“Fabulous farmhouse that is beautifully decorated and with stunning gardens. We loved the roses, the pool, the sun loungers, the shutters – in fact everything. When we stayed the surrounding fields were full of sunflowers… Lovely local walks too! I would love to come back with my mum and step-dad (there are downstairs bedrooms and they are all quite spread out, so it feels very private). The owner, Sam, was very charming and full of good local knowledge. 10/10. Perfection!” Lucy MacDonald, September 2017

“We were delighted to find the property, delivered on everything promised. The restoration has been done well, with quality workmanship and many stylish features. The Salon is an amazing room with ample space for even the largest party… The house was spotlessly clean on arrival and the owner even emailed to check that all was well. There are plenty of places to visit locally and we especially enjoyed the river walk. A second week would have been even better!” David M, August 2017

“We chose this for our 30th wedding anniversary celebration, we had a party of 11 people ranging from 1 to 60, on arrival we were amazed at the stunning approach to the property which can be seen from the village on the hill, the house is amazing, the younger members loved the snug, the grand salon was impressive and we enjoyed many an evening with everyone playing cards, games etc.The children especially enjoyed the table tennis. The pool is awesome and even in late May to early June was very warm. The bedrooms were huge and each one unique. We would have no hesitation in recommending this as an ideal family holiday..” Alan D, May 2017

“La Bomba is a beautiful property set in a very peaceful part of the French countryside. Our party was 7 adults and a Scottie dog ! and we all had a great time. Plenty of long walks to enjoy and the property has plenty of space to relax around the pool and outside areas. Sam, the owner was really helpfull with lots of tips on places to visit and would defiantly recommend to friends..” Jackie S, September 2016

“What can I say? We had a brilliant time at La Bomba. It was the best experience we’ve had in 10 years of booking villas across Europe. From first enquiry to our last day, Sam was on hand to help out and advise on everything. It’s a big house suitable for two or three families. We were 2 families with 8 children and they weren’t bored for a minute… Bedrooms were clean and tidy and a good size too… I would definitely recommend this property if you’re looking a for a villa suitable for big families.” Eduardo T, August 2016

“We spent three terrific weeks at La Bomba this summer. There was plenty of room for us and our friends, with the extensive inside space a particular advantage in allowing everyone to have some peace. The pool and pool area was terrific, bigger than the average pool, and the gardens large enough for games. The patio area was lovely and had sunshine for almost the whole day. There is lots to do nearby and some beautiful towns especially St-Felix-Lauragais and Revel. We rented bikes which we loved cycling up and down the path by the stream next to the house to the nearby lake for ice cream. We have rented many places in France over the years and this was among the very best. Sam was also super helpful and easy to contact with anything we needed. We were very sad to leave…..” Sarah H, August 2015

“We were an extended family with 3 little ones and the two wings of this spacious house worked very well for us. The pool which is lovely, great size, is very close to the house but at a different level so little ones could play safely outside on the terrace without the attraction of the water under their noses. We loved the rigole walk – shady for most of the day and ideal for getting little ones to sleep apart from the chance to see fish, butterflies, otters and hoopoe birds. Lots to see in the area from St Felix Lauragais to Castres, Revel and Albi only an hour and a quarter’s drive away. ” Catriona G, July 2015

“We had high expectations from the images on the website yet the property managed to surpass all of our wishes and desires! It easily catered for all three generations of our family from aged 25 – 80 and is clearly well cared for and maintained by the owners. With good access to surrounding villages and towns, and with superb customer service from initial queries onwards we cannot recommend La Bomba highly enough.” Anonymous, June 2015
