Why Wendy Simpson chose Beziers area

On the outskirts of Capestang, Le a Petit Saint Nazaire is a former wine growers residence surrounded by vineyards.

Served by Beziers, Carcassonne, Montpellier and Perpignan airports, all within an hours reach. Capestang is a thriving village with a town square which holds a bustling twice weekly market. It is dominated by a 14th century church. Situated on the Canal du Midi, now a designated world heritage site. Ideally placed with the sandy beaches of the Mediterranean to the South and the Regional Park of Haut Languedoc to the North.

What makes this barn unique

The owners live on site in the main house and are on hand to make your stay as comfortable and enjoyable as possible. They are happy to assist you with any enquiries and to suggest activities, places to visit, restaurants to try and to arrange wine tasting tours through the local tourist office.

The rental includes a welcome pack. A baby sitting service is available if required. The owners can offer a selection of indoor and outdoor toys, games and books and can also supply high chairs, potties and toilet seats.

Well equipped gite, great for families

  • 5 of 5

The gite was fresh and clean and equipped with absoluely everything we needed. Food basics, lots of fruit, plus a bottle of red and white wine were left for us our arrival, this was much appreciated as we had a late flight in to Montepellier and didn't stop for supplies on the way. Wendy and Pat are very nice and very welcoming and are happy to suggest places to visit, our 2 year old daughter still talks about Wendy's house 2 weeks after leaving. She loved the pool and rowing the dinghy across it, and was kept occupied with all the outside toys to play with, wooden house, tree swing, slide, various bats and balls, outdoor games and bucket of duplo. The pool isnt quite fully fenced off, but it is on the side where the gites are, and there is a safety alarm fitted on the pool which prvided peace of mind. There are plenty of loungers around the pool and areas in the garden to sit and enjoy the views over the fields with a glass of wine and meal.

We stayed at the gite 4 out of 11 nights in France, but wish we had stayed longer here. There are lovely beaches 30 minuted away, we loved Serignan with beautiful soft sand backed by grassy dunes. There is a restaurant close to the entrance to the beach where we enjoyed pizza. We also visted Bezier, Narbonne and the Canal du Midi. The Plateau des Poetes is an enchanting park in Bezier well worth a visit for all ages - don't miss the old fairground rides and cafe at the top playing old french music in the open air, it was like stepping back in time.

Capestang itself has a nice restaurant on the canal and a park for children. There are lots of restaurants to choose from in Narbonne and the cathedral area and the gardens to one side of it are lovely to play in.

We would love to visit again with my Sister and her family - the two gites are perfect for travelling with an another family who want to holiday together but want their own space too!

Fantastic gite in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We were very impressed by the gite and don't think the pictures online do the outside space justice. It's a great place for children to play and the adults to relax.

Internally nice and clean. The welcome pack was a nice touch when you arrive.

The owners, Pat and Wendy, are great hosts. Very helpful and informative. To give you an idea, our daughter was 7 during our stay and they put bunting up and provided a cake and present (as did the other family staying in the other gite!)

I would recommend you hire a car as it is a great base for exploring the area: great beaches, historic towns and lots of vineyards...

Superb Gite and friendly hospitality

  • 5 of 5

Wendy and Pat are great hosts. We had a fantastic time in Gite 2, which is well laid out, very clean and very well maintained. The pool is fantastic and we were made to feel very much at home by Wendy and Pat's warm and friendly hospitality.

Wendy and Pat offered us a new perspective on Capestang and the surrounding area, 5 years after we had a 3 week holiday there exploring the area ourselves. They gave us great advice on where to visit Roquebrun and the Mediterranean gardens were great), restaurants to try (Auberge La Selette is lovely) and of course the best way to buy our wine to bring home!

We would not hesitate to book again with Wendy and Pat.

Wonderful stay in a charming Gîte

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our to weeks stay in the nice Gîte end of September very much. The house is well equipped with comfortable beds (including fresh bed linen and towels every week) and a cozy big living-dining-room with an open kitchen. There is a little terrace for each of the two adjacent gîtes in a few meters distance only to the fenced-in wonderful swimming-pool (with very fresh, unheated water). We were welcomed with a very generous selection of fruit and food plus wine. We had a very nice, uncomplicated and humorous time with the two hosts Wendy and Pat living next-door.

The area of Capestang offers a big choice of places of interest within driving-distance, e.g. Bèziers, Narbonne, Canal du Midi (good for cycling alongside), Abbaye de Fontfroid, Montpellier, numerous wineyards and so on. A car is absolutely necessary also for daily needs.
