We are looking at staying in Capestang in September next year. Is anyone familiar with this village?
Thanks for replying.
What is there in the way of restaurants, cafes?
Is there the usual range of shops and services (boulangerie, bouchiere, pharmacie, tabac, ATM etc?
Where is the nearest bicycle hire operator (want to cylcle the towpaths)?
Is there anywhere nearby that hires out boats on the Canal du Midi for a day?
Is parking an issue as we will be in several vehicles and our accommodation may not necessarily have enough parking?
If you do stay in capestang, there is a GREAT tiny restaurant on the banks of the canal and lost in the vineyards. It's called the Pourquoi Pas restaurant (04 67 93 37 94) and is held by british people. The dinning experience is fantastic... make a reservation if you plan on going for dinner, the only seat about 16 people per night and is almost always sold-out.
You'll have no problem parking in capestang. the village has several bakeries and small shops. Just don't expect to go shopping for clothes or luxury items in Capestang. If you make it to Béziers, try and have dinner (or better yet stay at) La Chamberte in Villeneuve les Beziers. Their food is stunning. Villeneuve is also along the canal.
I am organising a cycling trip along theCanal du Midi next May for 11 cyclists and I too want to stay in Capestang. I am struggling to find accommodation listed on the Internet that gives me an idea of what faclities it has, what it is like , etc
I have identified Le Relais Bleu and Hotel Franche Comte - are either of these hotels OK to stay at is anyone aware of photos etc that will give ma an idea of what they look like, etc. Is there anything else that I should be looking at?
