Le Petit Vigneron
About the home
Le Petit Vigneron is a spacious apartment set at the end of a tree-lined garden, just yards from the Canal du Midi and 30 minutes from Mediterranean beaches or the stunning mountain scenery of the National Park of Haut Languedoc. You can cycle, hire a boat, walk, laze on the beach, visit castles or vineyards. Capestang is a lively village, whose centre is a two minute stroll away, with a variety of entertainment and a twice-weekly languedocien market in the attractive square where you can sit at one of the cafés and watch the stallholders vie for attention. There are 7 restaurants to suit all tastes and shops offering local produce. The apartment is well equipped and comfortable with living room/kitchen, a double and a twin bedroom and large bathroom. Whatever your choice of activity among the many on offer, or a lazy stroll into the village you can end a perfect day sipping wine on the terrace as you watch the sun go down over the Collégiale.

The Languedoc-Roussillon / Herault 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.

It is popular with walkers and cyclists who appreciate the shade of the plane trees which line the canal, with people who hire boats to float leisurely along but who enjoy the facilities on offer in the village, and with tourists of all ages who seek a central base from which to explore the region. There are 4 bakeries, 7 restaurants, 2 cafés, assorted shops, 2 supermarkets and a twice-weekly market in the attractive main square. The local tourist office is active in organising events throughout the year, a highlight being the firework display on the canal on the 14th July, the national festival. Bike-hire and boat hire available directly behind the house. Museums in the immediate area include patchwork, hats and roman pottery! There are 2 olive-oil mills and horse-riding in adjacent villages.
