Unforgettable experiences

In the surrounding area

Stretching lazily along the Mediterranean from the Côte d’Azur to the Spanish border, the Languedoc is the quintessential South of France, a region of vibrant fishing villages, endless beaches, rolling vineyards and cypress fringed olive groves, of medieval castles perched on rocky outcrops, thriving market towns and forgotten hamlets.

For all its feel of splendid isolation, Château Capitoul is just five minutes from the picturesque fishing village of Gruissan. The golden beaches of the Mediterranean are just a few minutes beyond or a comfortable cycle through the lagoon on our complimentary bikes.

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 France.

And right beside us La Clape, 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.

One of the few restaurants with 3 stars, the Vieux Puits is considered one of the best restaurants in France. Situated in a tiny village in the Corbières, the cuisine is more traditional than molecular at the Ferran Adria, but expect the unexpected!

Office de Tourisme de Gruissan - 80 boulevard Pech Maynaud – 11430 Gruissan.
Gruissan est plus qu’un village. C’est surtout un état esprit. Les « Gruissanots », naguère peuplade de pécheurs, revendiquent aujourd’hui un côté bohême assumé. Il faut dire que ce village multifacettes ne manque pas d’atouts. Citons ses nombreuses et vastes plages, dont la plus célèbre – la plage des chalets, bordée de baraques sur pilotis – fut rendue célèbre par le film de Jean-Jacques Beineix 37.2 le matin dans les années 80, son centre historique doté d’une tour – la Tour Barberousse - en surplomb de l'ancien château fort de la ville, son grand port de plaisance, ses salins , son étang souvent émaillé de flamands roses, ses clubs de plage à la fois chics et relax… C’est aussi le village le plus proche du Château Capitoul, ce qui ne gâche rien.

Indeed, you can have lunch or dinner like kings thanks to the refined local cuisine of chef Carole Peyrichou, while watching the windsurfers or kitesurfers rocket across the sparkling water. Because yes, it is the reference spot for surfers in the area.

The colours, the exceptional light, the authenticity and the picturesqueness of this small Catalan fishing port attracted the painters Matisse and Derain as early as 1905. This is how Collioure became the cradle of Fauvism, enjoying from then on the reputation of "City of Painters" on the international scene. A real postcard, with its exquisite bay surmounted by a bell tower, its mill and its castle, Collioure nevertheless cultivates its authenticity, notably through the development of its land. For several centuries, Collioure has been famous for the preparation of a typically Catalan dish - anchovies. Collioure is also surrounded by terraced vineyards which produce excellent wines, including the Banyuls AOC, a natural sweet wine aged in oak barrels.
