A gem of a Gite

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a week at Le Petit St Nazaire and enjoyed every minute. When we arrived on a Monday afternoon, Wendy and Pat were there to greet us and made us feel very welcome indeed. The Gite was airy and spacious and had all mod cons. There was ample parking in front of the house and the door to the rear lead to our private patio area and on into the lovely garden and pool. What not to like?-!

During our stay, we went out each day visiting vineyards and nearby places of interest (of which there are many) and would return home, as we liked to call the gite, to relax and share a glass or two of wine. Dispite the proximity of the busy road, the evenings were quiet events and we were able to enjoy sitting outside and enjoying the view. Our neighbours in the next door gite were delightful and also two friends joined us for a few nights in the spare bedroom which worked well. This was aided by the fact the the loo was separate from the bathroom and directly across from it.

A newly built Lidl with a fantastic wine section is just a few minutes drive away as was the Intermarche which had the edge foodwise. Capestang is a pretty old town with several restaurants to look out for, and of course the Canal du Midi (the main reason we chose Capestang) is within walking distance from the centre of town (or you can park up over the bridge) and walk or bike along the canal path. Alongside the canal there is just one bar/restaurant and this is reasonably priced and gives you a good view at the passing boats.

The Gite and Capestang is well placed to visit Carcassonne, Cather ruins, Beziers and Narbonne both of whom have long sandy beaches. If you are a wine buff then there are several domaines you can visit in particular Chateau Perdiguier outside Maraussan.

Debbie and Petes Holiday Sept 2017

  • 5 of 5

We arrived to a warm welcome from Wendy and Pat. The pictures on the computer do not do the gite and gardens justice. There are little tables around the garden so you can sit in the sun or in the shade, to eat or read and enjoy a nice glass of wine. We enjoyed the food wine and fruit which was left for our arrival, and was an unexpected bonus. We made use of the information booklet that Wendy had left in the gite. It was a pleasure to stay with Wendy and Pat, thank you.

Warm and welcoming holiday in Capestang

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we stepped in to this gite and found a very generous supply of provisions in our welcome pack Wendy and Pat could not have been kinder and more attentive. The site is extremely well equipped, comfortable, and clean with access to a lovely swimming pool and gardens.

This site made an excellent base to explore the various little villages and walks on the Canal du Midi as well as the more busy but enticing plages on the Med.

Highly recommend.

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.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your lovely review - they are always much appreciated. We are pleased you were able to relax in the different areas of the garden. 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.

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

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.
