Capestang (only 1km from the house) is a small, charming town, centred on a square and the Canal du Midi, with outdoor cafes, restaurants and bars. There is a range of other amenities including boulangeries/patisseries, a butcher, pharmacies, two supermarkets and, of course, several wine caves. The 14th century Cathar church is also found in the square and overlooks the twice weekly market. Two minutes walk beyond the village square is the Canal du Midi (designated as a World Heriatge Site) with magnificent views over vineyards to the Mediterranean and 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. (Google Maps Link)
