This house is situated just a 5 minute walk from the centre of the southern French village of Capestang (population approx 3,500), which is close to the Pyrennees, the Massif Central and just 25 minutes from the Mediterranean.
The village has a number of shops, bar cafes, restaurants, a very striking church and other amenities. At the eastern end of the village, there is a supermarket.
Recommended restaurants in the village are Le Provence, La Bateliere (right by the Canal du Midi), La Galiniere and Le Relais Bleu, to name just a few.
There are a few really good wine 'Caves' within a few metres of the house, all well-priced and very worth trying.
This area is blessed with a Mediterranean climate meaning that it is hot and dry in the summer and the winters are relatively mild, with lovely comfortable spring and autumns in between.
The Canal du Midi crosses the northern part of the village and is well worth taking a stroll along. The shady towpaths are great for jogging or cycling.
There are a couple of supermarkets in Capestang, Lidl is on the right just beyond the crossroads on the way to Carcassonne.
Capestang is about 15 minutes from the Beziers West exit of the N9 Autoroute.
It is about one hour from Montpelier, Perpignan and Carcassonne Airports, two hours from Toulouse and three hours from Barcelona.
This area is full of antiquity and items of historical interest dating back to 3,000 BC. This village has been in existence for at least 1,000 years and parts of the old village wall and other buildings still exist.
It is a centre of the Languedoc viticulture region where the local wines have become exceptionally good over the last few years.
There facilities for walking, lazing on the beach, swimming and other water sports. It is a very good area for cycling and walking. For the motorcyclists, there are some excellent roads for riding hereabouts but beware of the speed traps.
Wine tasting, eating out and exploring old relics are also good options.
The locals are so very friendly and overall it has a calm and peaceful atmosphere and is an ideal place to wind down. It is also makes an excellent base for touring the region.
Market days on Sundays and Wednesday and generally Capestang is paradoxically a lively yet calm place where you can do as much or as little as you like - it's an ideal place to wind down.

" CAP109 - GUEST COMMENTS: Karl " It was extremely comfortable and well equipped. Simple and good service during the process of booking." "The inside way exceeded our expectations in terms of kit out and bedrooms were really lovely. Very smart house and the facilities on site like two fridges, sky TV, DVD were great surprises. We discovered Narbonne Plage the second week which was super for swimming, sunning and beach volley and soccer. Also there were street stalls and carnival every evening we were there and all the children loved it. It was typically French but sedate." 2012 Rob " The property was better than the pictures on the website. The facilities were excellent and the standard of the fittings were more than we were expecting. The house was wonderful and gave us the break we were looking for. In fact, the location and facilities could be sold up more. " June 2013 "
