Capendu - a village house near the old bell tower by Beausoleil Star this if you like it!

Remains of the Castle and the Bell tower that is still in use today. It has been determined that the village dates back to Gallo-Roman times and by 1815 there were 101 houses which had grown to 198 by 1660. At one point following poor harvests and excessive taxation, this fell to 90 houses but then the population started growing again until 1820. When wine became a main trade, the population grew until it reached 1664 inhabitants in 1921. It is currently a thriving modern village surrounded by vineyards.
