Good Tuesday morning! A renovated winemaker’s house in a beautiful village near the Canal du Midi in southern France!
This home is so pretty! Positioned perfectly atop a hill in the southern sun, this place is absolutely dreamy. I can imagine a weekend morning with windows and patio doors thrown wide open, a warm breeze flowing in, a cup of coffee in the sparkling sunshine of a fresh new day. The medieval village of Capestang is as striking as this house, with a huge old cathedral jutting up from the surrounding graceful countryside.
