Maison de Capestang
Villa | 5 bedrooms | sleeps 10
Gorgeous large house of 300m² to sleep a comfortable 10+ with 9.5m x 4m swimming pool. Located on the edge of the lively village of Capestang.
La Maison d'Estang is in the village of Capestang between the ancient cities of Narbonne and Beziers in the heart of the Languedoc area of France and on the banks of the Canal du Midi, a one hundred and fifty mile long World Heritage Site.
La Maison d'Estang began its life as a pair of elegant C17th houses on the high road to Carcassonne before becoming for some years the village Gendarmerie. Recently reincarnated as a charming maison de ville, La Maison d'Estang comfortably sleeps ten adults in Four Air-Conditioned Bedrooms and a garden level Fifth Bedroom suite (along with folding beds or cots for those little extras).
The house has two kitchens for indoor and outdoor dining, three en suite or shared bath and shower rooms and separate cloakroom. Facilities include high-speed wireless internet, a Games Room with Pool Table and dart board, a fireplace plus full central heating, secure garage parking, full laundry facilities, and, of course, a swimming pool. And it's only twenty minutes from the golden beaches of the Med!
The house is partially wheel chair friendly in the down stairs part of the house.
Pets at owners discretion
Recently restored, the house is full of traditional French charm with high beamed ceilings and stone walls.
There are 2 kitchens for indoor and outdoor cooking, 3 dining areas (2 inside and 1 outside), 2 barbecues, 4 air-conditioned bedrooms, a games room (with darts & full size pool table) which converts to a fifth bedroom with en suite shower room and possible wheelchair access.

A quiet seating area is adjacent to the outside covered dining area which seats up to ten.
