Ventenac is a charming village of Narbonnais, built amphitheatrically on a hill from which you can enjoy a beautiful view of the plain of Canet, Raissac and Saint-Nazaire.

The Canal du Midi, lined with magnificent trees, runs at the foot of the village.

The Château and its outbuildings are home to the Cooperative Cellar of Ventenac-en-Minervois and its winemaking cellars. We love the vintage boat Marie Thérèse waiting to transport the wine!

The Répudre Aqueduct : a work of art reported as "curiosity". This is the first canal bridge due to the genius of Paul Riquet.

We walk in the streets of Ventenac and we observe the remarkable structures.

We loved sleeping in the castle tower. It overlooks the Canal du Midi! Neat rooms not to be missed. From 190 € per night, breakfast included
