If you're looking for the perfect holiday rental in a traditional village in the south of France, you've found it. Everything about this charming village house is top-notch with all of the comforts of home. The kitchen and bathrooms are spotless, modern and well-planned in design. The beds are comfortable and the neighborhood is peaceful.

Hi Mike and Mavis,

Just wanted to say what a wonderful time we had at your lovely French home.

It was far better than we expected as the internet does not do it justice. It is really light and airy, immaculately clean, comfortable and very well equipped. We loved the garden and the spa pool which was great after a day on the bikes. It was lovely to stay somewhere that was not just fitted out as a holiday let but as a second home.

Capestang is wonderful little town with plenty to do in the day and in the evening. La Table de Vigneron was our favourite restaurant as the setting is just fabulous.

Thanks too for all your advice and information on the area.




Very impressed. Great house to be in. Capestang and surrounding area of great interest. Could spend a lot more time here. Very sad to be leaving.

Hi Jane,

Thanks, we had a great holiday. The house was perfect. The air conditioning in the bedrooms was very nice. We enjoyed the garden and the jacuzzi. Everything worked perfectly in the kitchen which was well fitted out. The town was lively and pleasant with a choice of restauarants and boulangeries. Overall top marks.

I should add that Mike was very helpful in giving us tips on where to visit and to place to eat.

best regards


Hi Mike

We have now come back to normality. We had a lovely time last week at your house. The weather was very hot and we enjoyed the beaches and the hot tub. The house was very well equipped and was really great.

Hi Mike

We had a great time the house is lovely. We are hoping to visit Capestang again next year in June but we think there will be eight of us. Do you have any larger properties ?

Kind Regards


Hi Mike,

I received your letter yesterday. Thanks for the refund. We very much enjoyed the holiday. The house was perect, the weather was good and the town was lively. We ate out in the Cafe de la Grille on the last night and wished that we had eaten there more. The kids loved the steak and chips and my wife had a lovely fish meal while I ate grilled lamb. It was delicious and very reasonable.

My wife asked me to say to you that she didn't think the website photos did the house full justice. Perhaps a wide angle shot of the back from the bathroom window would give a better feel of the garden. She also said that the kitchen was bigger than it seemed.

Anyway, thanks for all your advice and we really did enjoy ourselves.

best regards


Hi Mike,

Just to inform you I sent the keys by post to you the 3. may.

We had a great week in Capestang. We enjoyed your lovely garden and house. Everything worked perfectly and we were lucky with the weather.

Best regards



Dear Mike,

I'm just writing to say that we are now back from France and how much we enjoyed staying at L'Hirondelle. It is beautifully furnished - probably the best French house we've stayed in. We were also pleasantly surprised by how nice the garden is - I don't really think the photos do the place justice! It is more spacious than it looks and the downstairs, especially the kitchen, wonderfully well equipped and modern, likewise the main bathroom. We were also very glad of the air conditionning- we took our time coming back and stayed in places without and also two Novotels where they had it but it wasn't nearly as effective as yours! So we were more than satisfied, thank you!

Best wishes,
