About Rebekah Cooke

Richard and I (Rebekah) now live in France. Prior this we lived in Cornwall and had owned a Holiday Park with 14 bungalows, before we decided to have a complete change and move for the sun, food, wine and slow pace of life. We have not been disappointed. We love living in France and love the challenge of speaking french. We wanted a village location so that we had neighbours and at the very least, a bakers. We chose the house because of its location, grandeur and because it has a lovely relaxing feel -just what you need for your holiday.

We are very lucky to still have our ties in Cornwall and have kept two of the bungalows at Notter Bridge. Having lived there for 10 years we know the park and the area very well and know that it is a great location to access all of Cornwall and Devon.

Rebekah Cooke purchased this chateau / country house in 2008

Why Rebekah Cooke chose Pépieux

We live in the same village as Manoir Theron and love the village itself and the surrounding area. It enjoys great countryside with the vines giving it a really Mediterranean feel but is in easy reach of cities big and small and everything else that you need. The closeness of the village to the sea, the Canal du Midi, the Montagne Noir and Pyrenees means there is something to do all year round.

What makes this chateau / country house unique

The Manoir itself is a huge house which is difficult to describe either in words or photos. The bedrooms are big enough to give you your own private space for relaxation away from everybody else. Sleeping twelve it is ideal for two families to share or one big family of many different generations. The village provides all your immediate needs without need to get in a car having a bakers, post office, general store and various visiting traders including fruit/veg, butchers and pizza.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our stay started with a very warm welcome from Rebekah and Richard, who were very helpful with any questions and close by if we needed them without being intrusive. The Manor was everything we could have wished for with luxurios bedrooms and superb decor, the kitchen was extremely well equiped and spacious. Set in a beautiful part of the country and within reach of many lovely places to visit such as The Carcassonne, Canal Midi, Narbonne, Lac de Jouarres and many more. Would definately go again

Amazing house set in beautiful surroundings

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely stunning manor house set in a beautiful village. Owners are very hands on but at a distance they even come in early every morning and clean the pool and the patio area. Inside its the perfect mix of old and new and superbly equipped. We will definitely be returning.

A beautiful comfortable house for family gathering

  • 5 of 5

The house was extremely comfortable for our three generation, 12 person family get together. Bathrooms large and well equipped. The house did not get too hot during the day and the large tree in the courtyard garden provided shade all day for those of us not wanting to sit out in the sun all the time. Terrace and BBQ great for evening meals, and barely any wasps! The pool was great for cooling off and messing around, and large enough to have some fun games of water volleyball. Rebekah and Richard were around every morning to clean the pool and answer any queries. Lovely area to explore; we recommend Minerve and the Canal du Midi, and of course Carcassonne! There were some great cafes and restaurants along the canal, we particularly liked La Guingette at Argens-Minervois.

Wonderful Week in Provence

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week here end of July / early August with two families, 4 adults and 6 kids. House was huge, more than enough room for us all (we didn't use one of the bedrooms) and we ate outside on the terrace when not at local restaurants. The house is full of character and charm and the pool was a must given the heat. We and the kids used it a lot. It was so nice after traveling for four weeks in Italy and France to stay in a lovely well equipped character house with such comfortable beds and big bathrooms! The large tree in the garden provided wonderful shade for lounging outside. We found Pepieux to be a great base from which to explore neighboring vineyards, towns and the Canal De Midi. Rebekah and Richard were fantastic hosts, responsive and very helpful. Could not have asked for more.

Fantastic large fully equipped house

  • 5 of 5

The house has been renovated to a very high standard; the kitchen is modern and fully equipped with everything you could need on holiday. The six large bedrooms all have fantastic bathrooms.

The outside space and pool are ideal for relaxing during the day and ideal for dining outside at night. Restaurants are within easy reach in olansac and other nearby towns. Beach is about 35 mins away. We will definitely be back at the Manor House.

Manoir Theron, a very special place to stay.

Another wonderful stay at Manoir Theron, our very favourite place for a family get together. The accommodation and setting is perfect, very clean and extremely spacious, a real treat.

Thank you Richard and Rebekah for looking after us so well. Christine and Martin Edwards

Beautiful property well presented and maintained

  • 5 of 5

A fabulous manor house in a lovely village. Owners extremely helpful and a font of knowledge about the area, There is everything you could wish for in the kitchen and the bedrooms and bathrooms are amazing!!! A very relaxing stay and would definitely recommend.

Rebekah advised us of a beautiful restaurant L' Auberge de la croisade by the side of the canal for a 50th birthday. AMAZING. Kyacking only 20mins away was fun for all.

Location

Special interest holidays:

Bikes are available to hire from a local company who will bring them to the Manoir and collect them at the end of your holiday. The bikes can be tailored to your cycling needs.

Coast/Beach:

The closest beach at Narbonne is about 30 minutes drive away and goes on for as far as the eye can see (about 4 miles). Other beaches then stretch east to Valras, Cap d'Agde, Marseillan all the way to Montpellier and beyond. Each has its personality from just sea and sand to more developed resorts. Going in the other direction, the coastline towards Perpignan provides equally spectacular beaches. Lac Jouarres, 5 min drive away has its own beach with swimming and other water based activities.

Travel:

The closest airport is 35 minutes drive away at Carcassonne, then Beziers at 40 mins, Perpignan at 60 mins and Toulouse and Montpellier at about 1 hour 20 mins. The drive from Calais, using the auto routes takes about 10-12 hours depending on your number of stops. Because of the rural location of Pepieux a car is essential to enjoy all that the local area has to offer.

Distances:

There is something for everyone in the Languedoc Roussillon region and all are easily accessible from Manoir Theron.

Carcassonne, only 30 minutes away and its medieval city has to be seen to be believed. The Canal du Midi, now a Unesco World heritage site, is just 6km away with walking, cycling or boat hire. Perpignan, Beziers, Narbonne and Montpellier are the closest cities. Barcelona and Spain are about 2.5 hours drive for those of you who are adventurous.

Further Details:

Wine tasting, enjoying the many and varied grapes grown in the area direct from the Domaines. We can organise a range of wine tasting experiences for your party from speed tasting, to give you a flavour of the Languedoc wines, right through to a course giving you a professional qualification. Just ask for details when you book. We can also liaise with local chefs to bring a taste of Languedoc into your home.
