                                                                                                      The gites are situated adjacent to the owner's (Wendy and Pat) house, about 3 km south of Capestang. On arrival, Wendy offered us the choice of either gite - it was a difficult choice as both are delightful, very comfortable, and fully equipped; we opted for the one Wendy had prepared to cause least upheaval. Out gite was spotlessly clean, with an ample relaxation area (with choice of British or French TV!), separate dining area, and a sizeable, fully equipped - and I mean fully! - kitchen area. Upstairs are two nicely sized bedrooms with great views, comfortable beds, and ample hanging/drawer space; the modern bathroom is also found on this floor. Outside, to the front is the entrance drive with ample parking; to the rear, there is a personal alfresco dining table just outside, but also many more to choose from dotted around the large garden. The pool is perfect for cooling off on the typical hot days from May to September - and just as nice to lounge around soaking up the sun. The whole setting is completely rural, with fantastic distant views all around. Wendy and Pat are the most delightful hosts, very friendly, informative, and helpful - on arrival, we found that Wendy had provided bread, milk, tea, sugar, biscuits, cheese, and a bottle of a superb wine; living next door, it was reassuring to know there was always help on hand if necessary, but otherwise, they were both completely low profile. We stayed for a week towards the end of October - for a change, we didn't want the usual hot, sunny, pool-dipping, lounger-reclining sort of holiday, we wanted cooler weather to explore the region thoroughly. Nevertheless, we still enjoyed warm, sunny days, and visited several very interesting historical sites, and, of course, the various seaside resorts. That's another great thing about the location - just far enough away to feel completely rural, but only 30 minutes drive from the coast, 20 minutes from Narbonne, 10 minutes to Capestang, and 5 minutes to Lidl! All in all, we had a really wonderful stay and can thoroughly recommend either gite to families or couples who can enjoy a lazy, relaxing holiday around the pool, or use the stay as a base for touring the region - or a bit of both.
