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.

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!

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.

Beautiful villa in the middle of the vineyard, very cosy and peaceful house, with a great vue on the Cathedral of Capestang.

Great for a large group of family or/and friends specially with the garden and its lovely swimming poo. A large and well equipped kitchen area, perfect to organise gigantic gastronomic dinner specially with the great food and wine of this area!

Well decorated and Large bedrooms and plenty of bathrooms and indoor spaces to relax in small group or bigger ones.

And around lots of things to see, visit and do!

Canyoning in Roquebrune, adventure climb in the tree park or shopping in Beziers, Museum Chapy with amazing olds bikes in Boujan sur Libron, horse riding, walking along the canal du Midi toward the lovely village of Poihles, and lunch at La Tour Sarrazine and many more!!!

Fantastic place, great location

  • 5 of 5

The property was immaculate when we got there and the children were in the fantastic pool before the suitcases had come out of the car. Loads of space and very well kitted out, the nearby town is lovely and we had a couple of very nice meals in the pizza restaurant by the church (choose the oysters and prawns) I would recommend this property to anyone - we had a superb time

The 14th century Cathar church is also found in the square and overlooks the twice weekly market - Sunday and Wednesday morning.
