About the Region
Narbonne - Narbonne, a city of just over 50,000 people, was an important Roman seaport, but centuries of silting of the Aude river have left it snoozing 15km inland. Its focal point is the Canal de la Robine, offshoot of the Canal du Midi, The Gothic Cathédrale Saint-Just et Saint-Pasteur was begun in the 13th century but never completed. The grand Palais des Archevêques (Archbishop's Palace) houses archaeology and art museums. The Horreum is an underground labyrinth of ancient warehouses left over from the town’s days as a Roman port. The nearby beach and harbor is at Narbonne Plage.
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!
We had a wonderful stay and loved the location. The gîte was airy and comfortable, with the bedrooms larger than we had expected. It was very child friendly with books, toys, stair gates, bed guards, cot, high chair etc. The garden was beautiful while also perfect for our young children. Lots of space and different areas to allow privacy for other guests and some shade on hotter days. The kids loved the climbing frame and playhouse, and the pool was wonderful. A truly wonderful place.
