About this location
The Languedoc-Roussillon region
The Languedoc Roussillon region of Southern France curves in an arc from Cevennes down as far as the Pyrenees and the border with Spain. The region hosts magnificent scenery, clean, uncrowded beaches with warm seas, excellent skiing & other recreational facilities, a richly diverse culture and cuisine, quiet roads, ready access, and a climate which boasts the highest annual sunshine average in the country.
The region is a noted, if somewhat underated wine producer, often overshadowed by the more well known Bordeaux to the west and Cote De Rhone to the east. However the wines here can be great and have to be tasted on a visit to the region.
Ventenac is a delightfully peaceful and friendly village, perfectly located for exploring the Languedoc region.The restored canal-side is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. In the village itself we have two restaurants offering a wide choice of menus and informal dining, as well as a mobile bakery which is open every morning. In nearby villages there are other restaurants, plus supermarkets, bakers, general stores, tabacs, cafés and bars.
The pure sandy beaches of the Mediterranean Sea are about 30 minutes' drive away, with a choice of family resorts such as Narbonne Plage and Gruisson, with its unusual chalets supported on stilts. From the house you can see the hills of the Corbières range, with the Pyrenees behind them – about an hour away by car. The famous medieval city of Carcassonne is 35km away, while the Cathar village of Minerve is even closer. Our biggest local city is Narbonne, which was established as a regional capital by the Romans.
