Delightful property in very attractive setting

  • 4 of 5

This was one of 2 adjacent gites, attached to the main house and converted very tastefully by the owners Wendy and Pat. It was furnished to reflect every possible need and provided an extremely welcoming and very comfortable base to explore this intriguing area. The pool and gardens were lovely, with hidden nooks and crannies to investigate and little private corners just perfect for the end-of-day glass of rose. Proximity to the Canal du Midi, the coast and historic towns ensure a varied programme of activity is easy to organise.

I would like to award a 4 1/2 star rating, as the only slight drawback is the proximity of a quite busy road. In all other respects Wendy and Pat's little corner of the Languedoc is wonderful and their welcome to guests generous and warm.

We like living in this area because there is so much to see and do. I know the road can get quite busy and hope the traffic noise did not detract from your enjoyment. It was lovely to meet you and we would love to welcome you back in the future.

Excellent place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

Wendy & Pat were very friendly and welcoming. We arrived on a Sunday when the supermarkets close early so they had bought a few essentials in for us which was much appreciated. The Gite had everything that you need for your stay and Wendy and Pat were happy to recommend local places to visit and eat. The pool area and garden was lovely, especially with the weather being so hot, it was a nice relaxing place to hang out. We would thoroughly recommend this as a place to stay if you're visiting this area of France!

Warm welcome, delightful gite

  • 5 of 5

We had such a lovely stay at Le Petit Saint Nazaire.

Wendy and Pat were wonderful hosts and couldn't have been more hospitable and helpful. The gite was comfortable, clean and well equipped. Our 3 girls were delighted with the garden which was a little oasis for a 7, 5 and 3 year old.

We are already planning our next trip!

Well equipped gite, great for families

  • 5 of 5

The gite was fresh and clean and equipped with absoluely everything we needed. Food basics, lots of fruit, plus a bottle of red and white wine were left for us our arrival, this was much appreciated as we had a late flight in to Montepellier and didn't stop for supplies on the way. Wendy and Pat are very nice and very welcoming and are happy to suggest places to visit, our 2 year old daughter still talks about Wendy's house 2 weeks after leaving. She loved the pool and rowing the dinghy across it, and was kept occupied with all the outside toys to play with, wooden house, tree swing, slide, various bats and balls, outdoor games and bucket of duplo. The pool isnt quite fully fenced off, but it is on the side where the gites are, and there is a safety alarm fitted on the pool which prvided peace of mind. There are plenty of loungers around the pool and areas in the garden to sit and enjoy the views over the fields with a glass of wine and meal.

We stayed at the gite 4 out of 11 nights in France, but wish we had stayed longer here. There are lovely beaches 30 minuted away, we loved Serignan with beautiful soft sand backed by grassy dunes. There is a restaurant close to the entrance to the beach where we enjoyed pizza. We also visted Bezier, Narbonne and the Canal du Midi. The Plateau des Poetes is an enchanting park in Bezier well worth a visit for all ages - don't miss the old fairground rides and cafe at the top playing old french music in the open air, it was like stepping back in time.

Capestang itself has a nice restaurant on the canal and a park for children. There are lots of restaurants to choose from in Narbonne and the cathedral area and the gardens to one side of it are lovely to play in.

We would love to visit again with my Sister and her family - the two gites are perfect for travelling with an another family who want to holiday together but want their own space too!

Fantastic gite in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We were very impressed by the gite and don't think the pictures online do the outside space justice. It's a great place for children to play and the adults to relax.

Internally nice and clean. The welcome pack was a nice touch when you arrive.

The owners, Pat and Wendy, are great hosts. Very helpful and informative. To give you an idea, our daughter was 7 during our stay and they put bunting up and provided a cake and present (as did the other family staying in the other gite!)

I would recommend you hire a car as it is a great base for exploring the area: great beaches, historic towns and lots of vineyards...

Superb Gite and friendly hospitality

  • 5 of 5

Wendy and Pat are great hosts. We had a fantastic time in Gite 2, which is well laid out, very clean and very well maintained. The pool is fantastic and we were made to feel very much at home by Wendy and Pat's warm and friendly hospitality.

Wendy and Pat offered us a new perspective on Capestang and the surrounding area, 5 years after we had a 3 week holiday there exploring the area ourselves. They gave us great advice on where to visit Roquebrun and the Mediterranean gardens were great), restaurants to try (Auberge La Selette is lovely) and of course the best way to buy our wine to bring home!

We would not hesitate to book again with Wendy and Pat.
