La Maison sur le Coin

Two Bedroom Village House with Roof Terrace

Recently modernised village house in the quiet village of Ventenac-en-Minervois in the Languedoc. Minutes walk from the Canal du Midi, restaurants, Ventenac Chateau (with wine-tasting) and close to the beaches of the Mediterranean. Situated between the cities of Narbonne and Carcassonne.

The house has two bedrooms, one with two single beds and the other with a double and a single. On the ground floor are the living room and fully equipped kitchen. The top floor has a sunny roof terrace where you can relax with a glass of wine, a good book and some sun-screen.

The house is located in the village of Ventenac about 15 km north-west of Narbonne. Ventenac, with about 350 inhabitants, is an unspoiled sleepy village situated on the beautiful tree-lined Canal du Midi and is set within the Minervois vineyards. The village has two fine restaurants, with pleasant outside dining, next to the Canal du Midi, as well as a post office, and bakery. The beautiful Chateau, is the focal point of the village. The Chateau is the place to taste and buy excellent local wine, or you can visit their wine museum.

The beautiful "Canal du Midi" which runs through the village, was built in the 17th century and served as a connection between the Mediterranean and the Atlantic. The presence of the canal, as well as the grapevines keeps the landscape green even during the warm summer season. The canal is tree-lined, with a canal-path that affords great walks or bike rides. Today, the canal is used by pleasure barges, which you can hire at nearby villages.

Ventenac is the perfect base for exploring the Languedoc area - and is just 30 minutes from the seemingly endless Mediterranean beaches near Narbonne. It's one hour to the mountains of the Pyrenees. Barcelona, Spain - a possible day trip.
