Welcome to Maison Saraphina
Enjoy the peace and quiet of the South of France. Nestled away within wine country between the medieval and historic city of Carcassonne, the Mediterranean and the Spanish border... Set in idyllic, romantic surroundings, our charming farmhouse is the perfect getaway for those looking for some fresh air and open space. Located in the heart of the Languedoc-Roussillon region (Occitanie) we welcome you to sit back and relax in the beautiful countryside surroundings.
The house is on 2.5 hectares of land abundant with fruit trees and flowers at every turn, perfect for families and friends accommodating up to 10 people between 5 bedrooms. You have full use of your own private 12 x 6m pool which is situated at the end of the garden. Around the pool is our comfortable lounge area in the covered (80 sqm) pool house. You have the choice to BBQ at the house or around the pool.
There are many villages on the doorstep such as Cruzy, Quarante and Capestang where you can pick up fresh bread and daily supplies. Capestang has a market on the square every Wednesday and Sunday. Just 2km away you will discover the world-famous UNESCO site the Canal Du Midi. For those who enjoy walking there is a vast forest of the doorstep to explore.
We live on site to take care of the daily running of the garden and pool. There are many domestic animals who share the space including 2 dogs, a cat, ponies and chickens who provide fresh eggs.
Emily and Finnegan also operate a hotel barge on the Canal du Midi. Visit Barge Saraphina website for more information.
Catering and Tours
As well as the self-catered formula we also offer a half board option. If you fancy having a completely relaxing holiday we can provide breakfasts and 3-4 course dinners as well as a daily cleaning service. We also provide a food delivery service. Catering can be organized for just one night or the duration of your stay with us.

A tour guide can be organized to introduce you to all the hidden gems of the region. Our loveable guide can provide you with the history and stories of Narbonne, Carcassonne, Minerve and many more of the beautiful surrounding villages.
The cottage, pool and garden are beautifully kept and views over fields are wonderful. Capestang is a lively town with several restaurants and two good supermarkets. Market on a Sunday is a bonus too. Approx 2km away so transport is essential. Lots of interesting villages/towns to visit within 20 miles, and beach at Valras-Plage is approx 40 minutes away. We couldn’t be happier with the choice we made. Thank you for letting us stay!

A peaceful stay in Sériège,
We were looking for a quiet house to rest.
We have found a villa to return to every year.
Although the region is full of wonders to visit, we opted for a week of "lazing around" at the poolhouse. Deckchairs, swimming pool, nap, tarot and a strict barbeque-based diet, such was the program of our stay.
We have had the most amazing week with the family, we love your beautiful house and gardens but the week was totally made by your fabulous hosting and cooking. We will definitely recommend Maison Saraphina and will be back next year.
