Beating heart of the south of france
Stretching lazily along the Mediterranean from the Côte d’Azur to the Spanish border, the Languedoc is quintessential South of France.
Vibrant fishing villages, endless beaches, rolling vineyards and olive groves fringed with Cypress. Medieval castles perched on snowcapped mountains, thriving market towns and forgotten hamlets.
A perfect mediterranean climate
Over 300 days of sunshine annually, mild short winters and long hot summers.
Superb motorway and high speed rail links on the doorstep.
Eight international airports connect the Languedoc to every major European city and many smaller ones via scheduled and low-cost carriers.
For all its splendid isolation, the Château is just five minutes from the picturesque fishing village of Gruissan, whose dozen or so restaurants, cafes, bars, galleries and antique shops generate an authentique/chic atmosphere all year round.
The other face of Gruissan is to be found on the lively beaches and in the marina where yachts and fishing boats jostle for space (moorings available).
Five minutes in the other direction is Narbonne, a small Roman city with a lively promenade culture of buzzy canal side restaurants and bars, and one of the most beautiful covered food markets in all of France.
The golden beaches of the Mediterranean are a 3 minute drive or a short cycle through the lagoon from Château Capitoul.
La Clape - Natural playground with
Once a wooded island harbouring Roman galleys, today the massif is a 37,000 acre conservation area crisscrossed with walking and biking trails with spectacular views over the Mediterranean and the surrounding countryside.
The surrounding area is a food lovers paradise with countless vineyards to explore, and markets offering the very best local produce. Superb cuisine and world-class local wines in simple bistros and Michelin starred gastronomic palaces.
“This Cinderella of the south was once over-shadowed by gorgeous Provence and the brash Cote d’Azur. Now, she stands as their equal, displaying a discreet charm that her more-visited siblings lost long ago.”
