Maybe you remember the final scene of our episode, Lucky in the Languedoc, for House Hunters International, where Alfonz and I discussed over wine which house to purchase in Capestang. It was at La Chateau Des Carrasses that Alfonz and I made the biggest decision of our life, to buy a house in Capestang.
Today we revisit the location for their open house, where they introduce their first year of wine and they showed people what the rooms and apartments look like inside.
They had hosts showing the suites and giving out pamphlets on the luxury rentals. Everyone was nice and friendly, and they went out of their way in answering our questions.
No detail over looked, these luxury suites, apartments and Gites are available for around 5000€/week, for up to six people. Most include a private pool, use of the tennis courts, game room and the run of the grounds. Carresse is located just outside Capestang, near our active community with markets and shopping, directly on the Canal du Midi.
At the open house, we listened to the folky sound of a local band, ate Gruissan raw oysters and sipped wine, while talking to the employees and fellow curious residents of Capestang. It made a lovely afternoon.
I hope you enjoyed us sharing this unique experience with you through photos. If ever you want a very special travel destination, with high-end chef meals and private pools, this may be your holiday.
