L'Hirondelle is French for the swallow. These birds visit the Capestang and the surrounding area each summer to rear their families and can often be seen performing their aerobatics against the backdrop of an azure sky.

This not just a house, it is also our French home, where we live when we are in France. To this end we spent over 4 years in respect of the design, renovation and equipping our home to the highest possible standards within our means in the firm belief that what makes us happy will also make you happy.

The Languedoc-Roussillon region

This recently renovated luxurious house is situated in the southern French village of Capestang (population approx 3,500), which is close to the Pyrennees, the Massif Central and just 25 minutes from the Mediterranean.

The house is situated within 300 metres of the village centre where there are a number of shops, bar cafes, restaurants, a very striking church and other amenities. At the eastern end of the village, there is a supermarket.

This area is blessed with a Mediterranean climate meaning that it is hot and dry in the summer and the winters are relatively mild, with lovely comfortable spring and autumns in between.

The Canal du Midi crosses the northern part of the village and is about 500 metres from the house.

There are a couple of supermarkets in Capestang, Lidl is on the right just beyond the crossroads on the way to Carcassonne.

Market days on Sundays and Wednesday and generally Capestang is paradoxically a lively yet calm place where you can do as much or as little as you like - it's an ideal place to wind down.

Capestang

Capestang is about 15 minutes from the Beziers West exit of the N9 Autoroute.

It is about one hour from Montpelier, Perpignan and Carcassonne Airports, two hours from Toulouse and three hours from Barcelona.

This area is full of antiquity and items of historical interest dating back to 3,000 BC. This village has been in existence for at least 1,000 years and parts of the old village wall and other buildings still exist.

It is a centre of the Languedoc viticulture region where the local wines have become exceptionally good over the last few years.

There facilities for walking, lazing on the beach, swimming and other water sports. It is a very good area for cycling and walking. For the motorcyclists, there are some excellent roads for riding hereabouts but beware of the speed traps.

Wine tasting, eating out and exploring old relics are also good options.

The locals are so very friendly and overall it has a calm and peaceful atmosphere and is an ideal place to wind down. It is also makes an excellent base for touring the region.
