It is dominated by a 14th century church. Situated on the Canal du Midi, now a designated world heritage site. Ideally placed with the sandy beaches of the Mediterranean to the South and the Regional Park of Haut Languedoc to the North.

Wonderful relaxing stay in a beautiful setting

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay in Gite 1. The gite is clean, comfortable and well equipped. The "welcome provisions" of food and drink was much appreciated and thoughtful. We spent most of the time outside though, enjoying the various places to sit and relax. My favourite place was at a table overlooking the pool on one side and the other side, overlooking a field, surrounded by fragrant rosemary bushes.

Our daughter loved the pool and the garden which extends beyond the pool. She made great friends with the children who were also on holiday in the gite next door. The garden is great for hide and seek and there was plenty of play equipment (swing, tennis racquets, balls, bucket and spades etc).

There are lots of places to visit (Carcassonne, Minerve, Roquebrun etc) but it was always lovely to come back to the gite.

Wendy and Pat are kind and helpful. Nothing was too much trouble and they made us feel very welcome.

We thoroughly enjoyed the stay and went home relaxed.

Hopefully your batteries are recharged! It was good to see the children making friends and playing together. You would certainly be welcome, should you decide to visit again in the future.

The property was much better than we anticipated and the pictures on the website in general don't do it justice. Pat and Wendy were welcoming, friendly and very thoughtful. We arrived after a long journey to everything we needed for a welcome French lunch with baguette, cheese and wine! They really cared and were anxious to ensure our holiday was great...which it was. The property itself is perfectly situated as a base for exploring this fabulous region. We had fantastic trips to Montpellier, Carcassonne and Sete...all within an hour. Highlight of the trip was kayaking down the River Orb. Everything was perfect!

Clean and comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

I cannot recommend this gite highly enough. Wendy and Pat were very helpful in every way. We discovered lots of nice little touches in the first couple of days. The place was clean and comfortable and everything seemed to have been thought of. The road was nearby but we found it to be well sheltered from any noise. The pool and gardens were kept beautifully clean, There are two supermarkets in Capestang 5 minutes drive away, and in general it is in a great place to use as a base for exploring, or just relaxing all day beside the pool listening to birdsong.

First class in every respect

  • 5 of 5

Wendy and Pat were perfect hosts with a warm welcome and we were delighted with the accommodation with all mod cons and home from home. The pool and grounds were very nice, although we did not use the pool it was just nice to chill out on the sun beds. We were very impressed how family friendly the facilities were , although we had no children with us , the toys , bikes , swing ball , climbing frame and slide and even a Wendy house complete with table chairs and tea set , plenty of pool toys and even buckets and spades if you want to take the children to the nearby beach. An amazing setting with first class accommodation , Wendy and Pat on hand in case you need any help , I would recommend this holiday to anyone who wants to have a relaxing break in a beautiful part of France.

Relaxing, friendly home away from home.

  • 5 of 5

From the warm welcome on arrival to the final farewell Wendy and Pat were fantastic and did everything to make us feel at home. We loved the pool and the views over the olive grove and across the fields to Poilhes.

The property is as described and the photos are an accurate representation.

Capestang is a lovely southern French town with 2 supermarkets, 5 or so restaurants, hairdressers etc etc. Best retaurant imo are Auberge La Croisade, La Terminus at Cruzy/Quarante and at Poilhes overlooking the Canal du Midi.

We have no hesitation in recommending this property to anyone looking for a relaxing holiday in this wonderful region.

Fantastic Family Stay

  • 5 of 5

My wife & 2 kids (8 & 11) stayed at Petit Saint Nazaire in July 2016 for 1 week. Upon arrival Wendy & Pat were most welcoming. The welcome package we received was great & saved us a trip to the local Lidl store which is only 5 mins away. The accommodation was better than expected & very spacious & clean. The pool was fantastic with plenty of pool toys & sports equipment to keep the kids (& myself) busy. The pool itself was great with plenty of sun loungers to use to relax & read a book. The accommodation is ideally located to visit vineyards, mountains & the beach. Wendy & Pat went out of there way to make sure we had everything we needed & gave valuable info on what to see & do. The best part of the accommodation was siting out in the evening admiring the view of the fields & the nearby village.I highly recommend this accommodation.
