Our home, La Fontenille, is a superb maison de maître (mansion) set in its own gardens in the heart of Ventenac, a small village in the Languedoc region of the south of France. The house overlooks the Canal du Midi.

Our second floor is available on a self-catering basis. It is a self-contained apartment entered via the main house front door and stairway. It has a fully-equipped kitchen / dining room, 25 m square, a meditation or sitting room, and three double bedrooms. So the hallway and stairway will be shared with us, David and Sundara, the proprietors, although the second floor is for your own exclusive use. We and our own occasional visitors occupy the ground and first floors. We prefer not to accept children under 18 years, in order to preserve the tranquility of our environment.

There are two sunny and spacious double/twin bedrooms (Lilac and Pink), each with its own en suite facilities (WC, shower, handbasin), with superb views to the south. On a clear day you can see Le Canigou, the crest of the Pyrenees, 88 km away. The twin Green bedroom, also with its own en suite facilities, has a westerly outlook.

Pricing is adjusted depending on how many bedrooms you need, but in all cases the apartment is exclusively for your use.

Subject to a minimum stay of 7 nights, your arrival and departures dates are completely flexible.

The 12.5 m (40 feet) long pool is available to guests at most times between May and September, but is unsupervised. The water should be at 23C or hotter during this period (up to 30C in high summer). There are poolside hot shower and toilet facilities. The garden is also available for quiet use at all times.

The closed garage safely accommodates guests' cars, in addition to our own. To stay in touch while on holiday, you are welcome to connect your laptop or tablet(s) to our WiFi network, which extends to the garden.
