What a great place to stay it is a fantastic big house that can accomodate 8 people with plenty of room to spare.It is beautifully decorated and has the best pool and garden to enjoy. Great BBQs were had on the terrace and the children loved chasing each other through the vineyards. It is perfectly located to visit Carcassonne Narbonne and Mountpellier. Dont miss the market in Narbonne it is great. We hired a boat on the Canal and had a great day out. The beaches are wide and the water was warm a nice suprise as our holiday was early June this year. Thank you for sharing your house with us we will definitely return in the future. We had the most memorable time with our friends in Capestang.

Fanastic House - perfect set up for families

  • 5 of 5

As our flight landed early the owner was kind enough to let us drop of bags and change before we disappeared to visit a local village (Bizes-Minervois) that the owner recommended.

The house was the perfect set up for us - we were two families of 2 adults and 2 children and the house is set up very well to slightly separate the sleeping areas with 3 beds and bathrooms on both the first and second floor. The views from the living room and table area around the front of the house are stunning and look back at the town of capestang. We also sat and had a drink watching the sunset there each evening.

The pool area is very private and well set up for young children as it has a shallow area the little ones can play in and the pool has a gate and alarm.

We will certainly return.

Brilliant large family Villa!

  • 5 of 5

We had an absolutely brilliant stay at this villa. Phil was incredibly helpful before hand helping us plan our trip and the villa itself was perfect! We travel every year as a group of 11 people ranging from age 7 to 70 and this was by far the best place we have stayed in. The Villa itself is lovely. Rooms are much bigger than average and so too are the four family sized bathrooms! Living space inside and out was also spacious meaning we didn't feel cramped or on top of each other. Outside, the pool and enclosed garden was great. The location is also perfect... about a ten to fifteen minute walk into Capestang and only a five minute drive to a large supermarket. Whilst we did spend a lot of time chilling out by the pool, on the few days we did venture out there was lots to do - the beach (30mins away)... a large waterpark (Cap D'Age 40mins), Bezier (20 mins away), inflatable waterpark (Cap D'Age again)... as well as a few more cultural visits to surrounding towns (most notably the fabulous Carcassonne). Its a definite find!!

Fantastic house and pool in beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful family get-together at Grand St. Nazaire. The house was perfect for our two families. Lots of space for is all to gather, or to get away from each other if needed! The pool area was great and we had loads of fun there. It was, without doubt, the best holiday we have had in a long time. The area had so many things to do - some highlights being Carcassone, Beziers, canoeing at Roquebrun and the ropes course at Beziers Adventures. Phil was a wonderful host and ensured that everything went smoothly for us. We hope to be back!

fabulous. plenty of space, lovely views

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful property, easily big enough for 8. The pool and gardens were lovely. The house was very well equipped, perfect for us and entertaining some of our friends. We were in Capestang for a wedding, but there was lots to do in the surrounding area and we will definitely be back.

A lovely place for a family break

  • 4 of 5

We spent a week at the property with some close friends and our 2 young children. It's a perfect place to spend a week in the sunshine. The house is clean, spacious and has a lovely pool and garden area.

Capestang (only 1km from the house) is a charming village, centred on a square and the Canal du Midi, it has outdoor cafes, restaurants and bars. There are a range of other amenities including boulangeries/ patisseries (5), butcheries, pharmacy and local caves. The 14th century Cathar church is also found in the square and overlooks the twice weekly market - Sunday and Wednesday morning. Just 2 minutes walk beyond the square is the Canal du Midi (designated as a World Heriatge Site) with magnificent views to the Mediterranean over vines and to the peaks of the Pyrenees.

Capestang enjoys an idyllic setting and is in a prime location for easy access to the more cosmopolitan cafe life of both Beziers and Narbonne. The beaches of the Mediterranean, and the Black Mountains of the Languedoc Regional Park are within 30 minutes drive.
