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.
