Maison du Monde is an absolute gem, located in the heart of the beautiful village of Capestang. The house has been lovingly restored, keeping some of the original features and combining them with the modern facilities required for a great stay. The kitchen comes supplied with every utensil that a budding cook may need and the facilities are perfect. The TV room/lounge comes equiped with a very large number of books and DVDs that my kids really enjoyed taking out to the converted cave, which is now a fully functioning cinema complete with original cinema seats. The bedrooms are of addequate size and the three bathrooms/showers are perfect for a large family. The outside space was heaven and gave our family a safe and secure area to play in. The pool area of which the picture do not do justice was fantastic for lazing around in private surroundings. Maison du Monde is situated in the heart of the beautiful village of Capestang, minutes away by foot from the main square, Canal du Midi and 2 supermarkets. This is a fantastic part of the world and we have spent many years coming here. Beverly is a great host and is always on hand to answer questions and queries that you may have. The house has been converted by someone who loves this place and you can feel it as soon as you walk behind the imposing gates. We can not recommend Maison du Monde highly enough and we hope this review is helpful to anyone coming to stay here. We look so forward to returning in the future and Thank Beverly and her team for everything. Evan & Brendan, Dublin, Ireland

Gorgeous house in friendly village.

  • 5 of 5

We loved this house the moment we opened the door. The photographs do not do it justice. The pool is bigger than we had expected and it was a comfortable 23 degrees .The house is spacious and beautifully furnished. It has everything you could possibly need, including a great library of books, DVDs and videos for all ages. We loved the location of the house as it is so close to the village square and also the canal.

The property was spotless and we were looked after by the lovely guardienne Marianna who could not have been more helpful and our kids adored. Beverly the owner had provided us with loads of really useful information before we arrived which helped us make the most of our stay.

We loved the delicious offerings from the Boulangerie, river swimming at Roquebrun, market mornings in the square at Capestang and at Narbonne, where Les Grandes Halles, food market is definitely worth a visit. We even got to see the Tour de France when it passed close by.

A super holiday, one we would love to repeat.

Highly recommended

  • 5 of 5

Having spent 25 years renting holiday homes in the wilds of the French countryside this was a bit of an experiment, it went well.

Instead of a 30 minute round trip for bread & croissants it was 2 minutes,when I realised I'd forgotten the charcoal for the BBQ it took a minute to repair my embarrassment from the mini supermarket, no one had to get up early to go to the market - it came to you, and instead of one glass of wine in a restaurant it was a bottle. (Though I'm not sure that last one was really a good thing?).

The house was decorated to high standard and the kitchen had everything, but most importantly the beds were comfy. Also there was enough room to lose all 3 children, late afternoons often saw one watching a movie on the big TV, another on their laptop in the lounge utilising the wifi to talk with friends back home on facebook, or chilling by the pool, or catching the last rays of the day in the courtyard.

There is plenty to do in the surrounding area and we had great days out to Carcassonne, Montpellier & Narbonne(don't miss the fantastic indoor market). There are many of places to taste wine if you are so inclined, I recommend "Domaine de la Provenquiere", ask Mallory for directions.

The village has a couple of bars and several restaurants, our favourite was "Le Provence", at the bottom of the square.

In conclusion, great house, great holiday, may well go back in the future.

We had a thoroughly enjoyable time in Maison du Monde. All the home comforts and more. The house inside and out is well maintained and equipped. The location in the centre of Capestang is excellent, 2 minutes to the bakers for fresh bread in the morning. The main square at one end of the street and Canal du Midi at the other - great for early morning runs followed by a cool down swim in the pool. There are lots of lovely places to visit nearby, pity we only had time to visit a few. The beach at Vendres is beautiful and quieter than Valras. Carcassone well worth a day trip. We'll definitely recommend to friends and would love to return. Thanks to both Beverley and Mallory in Capestang for all the tips and recommendations before and during our stay.

Location, location & atmosphere!

  • 5 of 5

Smack dab in the middle of Capestang - a wonderful little town near Beziers - with the nice square and dominant church in one direction and the Canal du Midi in the other. It's perfect whether you like to sit in a hammock outside the café and sip a glass of rosé or you prefer to jog for an hour in the shade along the tree lined river bank.

The house has two separate courts. One with a pool, a dining area and a quirky cinema (!) and the other with a summer kitchen/barbecue.

It's great to have two totally different outside areas, depending on mood and sunshine.

The house is quite big and the master bedroom is a joy to live in. And if you like to cook - everything you need (and then some) is in the cupboards and drawers of the kitchen. The property is surrounded by high walls and feels totally private, although it is located by a small but busy street. As a base for your Languedoc experience, Capestang is IT. And I don't think we could find a better house in town. Certainly not an alternative with a more service minded, positive and responsive owner (and that goes for her local right arm, neighbor and "caretaker" too!).

Top-notch.

Capestang is in the heart of Cathar country, located between the towns of Narbonne and Beziers and is on the Canal du Midi. Beziers being the nearest airport. The area is filled with fortified villages and ancient ruins. Fantastic sights nearby include Minerve, Carcassonne, Aigues Mortes, Beziers, Cap d'agde, Narbonne, Rennes le Château. Spain, Pyrenees, Coullioure and many more. The two nearest beaches are Valras Plage and Narbonne plage. These have sandy beaches that run for miles. There are great seafood restaurants and ice cream parlours. For children there is the animal reserve at Sigean, Agro branching, ice skating, canoeing and much more. For foodies there are the great food markets and the famous indoor food market at Narbonne. Antique Faires at Beziers, Montpellier and Avignon are all close. Vide Greniers (car boot sales) are great for finding antiques or collectables. Golf is nearby and for those looking to relax you can sit by the canal and watch the boats go by.

Other Activities: Agro branching, Canoeing, ice skating, skateboarding park, river pool nearby
