This beautiful house is directly on the Canal du Midi and has been restored to the highest standards with quality materials throughout. It lies in the small village of Poilhes, 34310. Capestang is five minutes away by car and Beziers 15 minutes. There is the possibility of turning the downstairs studio into a cafe. The Mairie was very supportive of this idea.
