The Languedoc-Roussillon region

Languedoc Roussillon is an area of little rainfall and of over 300 days of sunshine a year. Its landscape varies from the rugged garrigue with its perfumes of pine, thyme and rosemary, through the valleys of vines, melons, fruit trees and olives, to the long coastline whose resorts range from unspoiled natural beaches to important tourist destinations with all their attractions. No fewer than 63 beaches have the blue flag award for cleanliness. The Camargue is worth visiting to see the white horses, black bulls and flamingoes. Major cities such as Carcassonne, Perpignan, Montpellier, Narbonne and Nîmes offer cultural events, festivals, museums etc. as well as interesting medieval centres, shopping and restaurants. Small villages hold fêtes to celebrate the bounty of produce such as mushrooms, garlic, citrus fruits, olives and, of course, wine. In an hour you can be eating tapas and shopping in Spain.


Capestang is one of the most popular villages on the Canal du Midi.

It is attractive with its main square where the market is held on Sundays and Wednesdays, its many restuarants and shops and the wide variety of activities especially in the smmer months. On the 14th July there are fireworks on the canal's stone bridge, at the beginning of August the village fête takes place over 3 days with music, dancing, street food and entertainment.

You can hire a boat on the canal, go horseriding, play tennis and walk through the vineyards. From late August onwards the wine harvest is

an interesting sight to behold with the gigantic machines passing through the streets to bring in the grapes.

Wine-making is an important element of village life and you can sample the excellent end results in numerous caveaux in the village itself.

"Comfortable, great facilities and fab location"

We stayed at le petit vigneron for a short break with our 2 children. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, the hosts were welcoming and we had all that we needed for the stay. The location was perfect fo… More

the children enjoyed the outdoor living and we had a pleasant evening with a barbecue at the end of their stay.

"I wish we had booked several weeks instead of just one."

We had a wonderful week at Le Petite Vigneron in Capestang. The town is a terrific base, right on the Canal du Midi, to explore the surrounding area, including Carcassone, Mirepoix, Minerve, and Narb… More

we've tried every possible way to improve the stairway, but, as this was a wine- making building before being a house, it has 6 old "cuves" where wine was stored. These are made of reinforced concrete and if we tried to remove them we'd probably bring the whole house down, so sadly the steep staircase has to stay. We have to say that most people don't find it a problem and we do warn about it in our advert.

"We were sorry to leave Le Petit Vigneron!"

We had a wonderful stay at "Le Petit Vigneron". All the home comforts with nice touches which made all the difference. As we stayed 2 weeks, it was great to have for instance a washing machi… More

"ideally situated"

As others have said this house is very well equipped and there is a warm welcome from Jan and David. It is ideally situated in a large village with plenty of shops ,restaurants and mod cons but still … More

It is a shame about the loungers, we buy new mesh ones every season as they tend to dry out in the sun and become brittle. We have tried plastic and wood, but both need cushions and sadly we have found that, if it rains, our guests don't always bring the cushions indoors, so they rot! I'd welcome ideas to solve this problem!

"Great destination, great hospitality."

Had a lovely time at the Petit Vigneron with my wife and 2 year old daughter. Capestang is a charming little place with just enough cafes and restaurants to offer a bit of variety yet small enough to … More

our guests agreed with us that Capestang is ideally located to make the most of all that the area has to offer. They enjoyed the gite, the village and the area and were enthusiastic about their stay here.

"Perfect base in a wonderful area of France!"

We have just returned from our 2 week holiday in Le Petit Vigneron and wish we were still there!Jan & David are the perfect hosts, who are very knowledgable of Capestang and the surrounding area. If y… More

A very nice couple who made the most of the ideal position of Capestang to explore the many attractive places within easy reach. We do hope they will return and benefit from the discount we offer on repeat bookings.

"Fantastic, brilliant, faultless"

We had a wonderful week's holiday at Le Petit Vigneron in Capestang. The apartment is perfect in every way. Comfortable, well furnished rooms, plenty of kitchen equipment and a beautiful terrace.… More

again a happy couple who have already booked again for next year, two weeks this time, they didn't have enough time to see all that this lovely area has to offer.

"Cheerful, charming, perfectly situated."

A lovely apartment very close to the Midi Canal, and 2 minutes walk from the center of the village. Well appointed, with everything needed. Garden is lovely. Private terrace is idyllic. Steep ladd… More

we upgrade and improve our gite constantly, but we can't change the staircase, there isn't the headroom as this building was a wine-making building and still has the old "cuves" which held the wine. These are extremely solid and would need a bulldozer to get them down - might not be good for the rest of the house!!!

"A great place to stay in a lovely town"

We happened upon Le Petit Vigneron as we walked though the village looking for somewhere to stay a few days in the area: on the gate was a sign so we rang the bell! David and Jan were most welcoming, … More

it's great to have our efforts so appreciated. We try to make sure our guests can benefit from our knowledge of the area, so we are ready to lend maps, guide books etc as well as our own experiences and those of previous guests.

"Lovely gite, perfect hosts, friendly village"

This was our second stay in this comfortable and well-equipped gite. As ever Jan and David were wonderful hosts and couldn't have been more welcoming and helpful from allowing us to keep our bikes in their garage to helping us with our French pronunciation.

We love having guests return, it's the best feedback possible!
