Property description

This is a unique village property in the village of Capestang,in the heart of the Minervois region, famous for its canal, wine and spectacular scenery. The house itself is bright, airy and beautifully decorated with top quality items. The dining area seats six very comfortably and the outside terrace is ideal for al fresco eating and sipping a nice glass of local wine. The kitchen is well equipped with a professional cooker, and quality utensils. The front veranda has a table and chairs and ideal for watching village life go by. Both terraces have views over the Cathedral.

The Canal du Midi runs right through the center of Capestang and it boasts having the smallest bridge on the whole canal system. The village has a great variety of shops and the best bakery is 1 minute from the doorway. There is a colorful market twice a week where you can buy all your fresh fruit, cheeses, olives, flowers etc. There is also a large supermarket at the village entrance for other supplies. The village is very active in social events and there are great firework displays in the summer and also the village fete at the beginning of August.

Spain and the Pyrenees are only an hour away and you are also on the doorstep of the Haut Laungedoc National Park. Little medieval villages steeped in history are everywhere. We can provide bicycles for cycling along the townpath.

Location

Boating on the Canal du midi

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: I am Irish, my husband René is French and we own a hotel barge called Emma which we cruise on the Canal du Midi from April through to November. We bought the house in Capestang as it is right in the middle of our most popular route between Beziers and Carcassonne and being only 2 mins walk from the canal was very handy for us. After spending the summer season working on the barge we love coming back to the house to chill out. We got married in the Mairie in Capestang last year and had our wedding breakfast in the garden with our friends and family.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We love this area as we are close to the sea but also close to the mountains and as we are keen off road drivers love having all the wide open space right on our doorstep.
