About Carol Mac Kenna

We are a family of 4 and have always loved the South of France. So we set off in the beginning of 2007 and to our delight we managed to find this charming stone barn conversion on the Canal du Midi.

Carol Mac Kenna purchased this apartment in 2007

Why Carol Mac Kenna chose Ventenac-en-Minervois

The beauty about the Aude is that you are right in the heart of the Minervois region, which of course is well known for its Wine. There is so much to do here, and the fact that you have sunshine all year round really gives you the opportunity to enjoy the many outdoor activities. The great thing about this lively village is that it is situated on the Canal du Midi, which itself is a World Heritage site. A well known fact about France is the great road infrastructure, so a day out at the beach only requires a 30 minute drive. If however, you love skiing or trekking, the Montagnes Noire (Black Mountains), is only a 20 minute journey away.

What makes this apartment unique

Our goal & objectives, are to provide our customers with all the comforts, which is why the properties are so well equipped. The Plancha BBQs, for example, are a great way to enjoy an outside dining experience, while you relax from your adventurous outings. Among other things, we pride ourselves in the network of supports we have available, offering you a huge range of outdoor activity, for example, bike hire (delivered to your door), barge cruises along the Canal du Midi, etc. OUR aim, is to make YOUR holiday experience one to remember.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"We booked the Vine Apartment for 2 weeks and we were over the moon with the facilities. We loved the village and enjoyed BBQ evenings on the terrace. We tried both restaurants and we loved it"

Fantastic apartment and lovely location

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time staying on the Canal du Midi and we really enjoyed it. The village had two great Restaurants. David & Christoff from the Lou Coustelou Bar were great fun.

The Wine Chateau in the village was a pleasant surprise and although the wine was inexepensive it was good.

Many thanks to Carol, she really made an effort with the apartment, everything seemed brand new.

We would definitely recommend this to our friends.

Au revoir!

The village boasts a beautiful Wine Château with a Wine museum and a shop for tasting and purchasing your local wine. The village also features 2 good restaurants with large outside dining areas, both of which specialises in BBQ delights cooked over the Vineyards vine pruning wood to add a unique flavour to your chicken, fish, pork or other foods. Both restaurants share panoramic views and are located on the side of the canal, giving a pleasant dining experience, whilst watching the canal boats and pleasure barges go by.

There are options to hire bikes from Mellow Velos and explore the many routes along the Canal du Midi or for the more adventurous there are off road routes to choose from.

There is a large Sports & Leisure centre on 15 minutes away offering an Aquatic park, Olympic pool, indoor pool, water slides, paddle pools, volleyball courts, and outside park area. This centre also has Bowling, all year round Ice Skating, and a Skateboard park. There is also a fantastic restaurant offering top quality buffet style options, and there is a Victorian Pub in the Bowling centre.

The cite de Carcassonne also known as the Citadel is a fantastic Medieval experience, featuring live music events, great restaurants, and a truly fun atmosphere.

For you beach lovers, there is Narbonne Plage, which is only 25-30 minutes drive away and is ranked as a Blue Flag beach in Europe and is a great resort full of fun activities available. There are some great fish restaurants offering great meals at great prices.
