    Property description
    Condo/Apartment – 
    3 Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms, Sleeps 6
    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.

    How to get there
    For short non-winter breaks a car is really needed. For a longer winter let we can meet you either at one of the airports (except Montpellier, from where you can get a shuttle bus then the train to Narbonne) or at a train station. That way you can survive without a hire car; but it would be good in this case if you like cycling, to take advantage of a better range of shops in nearby villages.

We were made very welcome by David & Sundara. They provide a well equipped and spacious apartment. The stairs kept us fit as did the morning dip in the beautiful pool. The house and setting is similarly beautiful above the Canal du Midi providing shaded walks. A leisurely drive to Carcassone and other fascinating locations but not too far to... more

We stayed as a family with older children (17-23) and for this type of group it is perfect. A well-equipped, spacious kitchen, elegant rooms with space and style. Many attractions, walks and facilities within easy driving distance (Minerve, Narbonne, Canal du Midi, etc.). Space to relax with a great pool for swimming or cooling off. And charming, helpful hosts. more

5 of 5 stars Reviewed 9 April 2014 for a stay in June 2013

I stayed here for a month in 2013, for a mixture of work (I'm a writer) and relaxation. It was pretty much perfect. Elegant and generous house that stays reasonably cool in hot weather, and there's a wonderful big pool, The top floor apartment gives you a sense of privacy, though the hosts are very helpful and friendly.
