By the canal
Well equipped apartment on the edge of Capestang, an easy walk into the small town where there are small shops and restaurants or along the canal tow path as far as you like. Wonderful views as far as the Pyrenees from the church tower - tours twice a week. Plenty of places in the locality to taste and buy wine. As other reviewers have said, the bedrooms are very small, and the lights in the bathroom are positively dim (led bulbs should be considered!), but the main living areas are generously proportioned. It was a good centre from which to explore this interesting area.
Thank you so much for your review, good idea re. the bathroom lights!
Spacious apartment in great location
The apartment is large, spacious and has good facilities. The bedrooms are on the small side but like others, we slept in the double room and used the other bedroom as a dressing room.
We did think the apartment could do with a better clean. There were too many spider webs and some had obviously been there for a very long time; the sofa bed upstairs had lots of dog hairs on; there were remnants of peanuts and crisps on the floor. Another problem is the shower, which sprays everywhere once the water is turned on because the shower head moves of its own accord and then jumps out of the bracket when turned off.
The balcony area is large with a bbq, sun loungers, table and chairs - a great space for sunbathing, meals and watching the boats go by on the Canal. All in all, with a little more TLC this would be a very good apartment.
Capestang is a lovely village. The port is really attractive, the market is great for fresh produce and there are some good restaurants. We hired bikes from Velogenie and cycled along the Canal paths to the 9 locks at Bezier. It is also easy to get to many other places from Capestang.
Great apartment in a superb location made for a wonderful holiday
We have stayed in the area on holiday for the last few years but this was the best yet. The apartment is spacious and very well equipped. The outside terrace had a great view of the Canal du Midi and was a perfect place to sit and relax both during the day and evening.
Yes we agree with earlier reviews that the bedrooms are a little snug, but don't be put off, they are only for sleeping in. The rest of the apartment makes up for it with oodles of space.
Capestang has all you need for day to day living and the Sunday market is particularly good for fresh fruit, meat and veg, as well as a good selection of cooked food. The fancy cakes from the boulangerie in the town square were awesome.
The beach is within easy reach by car and of course Carcassonne is always worth a day out.
As a serious cyclist I was in heaven. Loads of quiet lanes to cycle on as well as the traffic free canal paths stretching for miles each way. Cycle to Le Someil for the best choice of canal side lunch restaurants in the whole area..
All in all we had a great two weeks holiday in a great apartment in a great location.
Thank you so much for the lovely review!
Ideal holiday home
We visited in the middle of June. This is a wonderful base for exploring the Herault. The house is very well equipped and ideal for four with the exception of the bedrooms which are a bit on the small side. As there were only two of us we slept in the double room and used the twin as a dressing room and wardrobe space. The indoor living areas are very spacious and comfortable and the terrace overlooking the canal and the church is perfect. Sue was away when we visited but Jan went out of her way to help us settle in.
La Galiniere and La Table du Vigneron were our favourite restaurants in Capestang.
A great holiday. Would come back again.

Many thanks Campbell and Morag, so pleased you enjoyed your stay!
Great place to stay
Nice spacious apartment in a great location. Sue was very helpful and every effort was made to make our stay comfortable.
Super apartment overlooking the Canal Du Midi
We had a wonderful stay in this lovely apartment. It is in a super position set back from the road overlooking the Canal Du Midi, and with a fantastic view of the magnificent church. The apartment is very well equipped and spotlessly clean. It is cool, spacious and very comfortable. The private south-facing terrace gets the sun all day. The apartment is a very short walk to the nearest bar / restaurant on the port, and a gentle five minute stroll across the bridge into to the town centre.
Sue is a lovely host - very welcoming and helpful.
Capestang itself is a delightful small quiet French town with several good restaurants and friendly bars. There are very good local shops and Boulangeries, as well as two large supermarkets - one each end of the town.
Overall we would strongly recommend Sue's apartment and a visit to Capestang - we'll be back next year!
Many thanks for the lovely review!
