Capestang - by the Canal du Midi

The delightful little town of Capestang lies in the south of France, on the Canal du Midi and not far from the Mediterranean Sea. Its privileged position in the sunny south makes it a magnet for holiday makers, yet Capestang has never relinquished its original and authentic charm, and earns its place in the history books as much as it earns its place in the holiday guides.

Capestang's tranquillity and charm

If you are seeking a place where the sun almost always shines, where life is bustling yet laid back, a place which is, in a nutshell, the perfect place to sip a cold beer or chilled wine in the village square on a balmy summers evening, then you might just have found that place in Capestang. Yes, market mornings (Wednesdays and Sundays) can be hectic, and you may well have to leave your bed a little earlier than usual to be sure to enjoy the experience to the full... but there are worse hardships!

Dining in Capestang

To recover from your exertions, however, you will have no difficulty in selecting an excellent restaurant from Capestang's small but superb collection, and once the market traders have gone you will find that peace and tranquillity reign once more.

Capestang's unfinished church

Capestang has a majestic yet unfinished church, which soars above the rooftops of the houses. Being so imposing you can't help but notice it, but it really is worth setting aside some time to take a look inside. Capestang has some ancient and interesting houses too, and just wandering through the pretty meandering streets is a history lesson in itself.

And nearby...

Capestang is slap bang in the centre of the Cathar trail, so take advantage of this and follow the tragic story as you take in the amazing countryside and historic castles. Visit local wine producers and taste their wares, or pop down to the glorious Mediterranean beaches and swim, sunbathe or try your hand at the many water sports on offer. Other sports are also locally accessible, with horse-riding, golf, walking, cycling, and even paragliding easily found close to the town.

Étangs, Roman ruins, chateaux and the Canal du Midi

You may also wish to visit the extraordinary natural environment created by the étangs, or salt water marshes, where you can see the beautiful native white horses running free as they have done for centuries. There are Roman ruins, chateaux and the pretty and relaxing waters of the Canal du Midi... truly something to suit every taste!
