Ventenac-Cabardes is a wine making village in the countryside but unbelievably just 8 kms from Carcassonne. With its chateau, narrow shady streets and medieval church, it has remained unchanged through the centuries.

The village has a well stocked local shop, tennis courts, childrens' park as well as numerous vineyards all within 300m.

The area offers year round holiday pleasures - exploring Carcassonne or you might prefer visiting the beautiful countryside and the many villages that have remained unchanged over the centuries.

Summer or winter there will be something for everyone in or around Carcassonne - festivals, markets, exhibitions, cultural events, music and the arts - events culinary or historical - the list goes on.

Skiing - The Pyrenees are within an hours drive for unrivalled mountainous scenery and of course the ski slopes.

A similar drive will take you to the warm waters of the Mediterranean.

A little further afield is duty-free Andorra for a little retail therapy.

There are numerous abbeys and Cathar castles to visit

About Jennifer Duffield Leclercq

We are a friendly anglo-french couple and have lived in the area since 2001. Daniel is from the north of France and Jenny, originally from Norfolk in east England has lived in France for the last 30 years. We wouldn't live anywhere else, the Languedoc area is so beautiful and has so much to offer - to say nothing of the sunshine! We've had the gites since 2003 and like to think we now know guest's requirements in terms of equipment and comfort. We are especially careful about cleaning and you'll find the gites spotlessly clean on your arrival. We really enjoy meeting different people from so many walks of life and so many different countries as you can see if you have a look at the contact page on our website. So...... have a look at our reviews and make your own mind up!!

The village is very typical with its château, narrow shaded streets and mediaeval church and has its village shop cum tobacconist cum baker and tennis court, childrens' playground (all within 300 m), as well as vineyards.

Go wine tasting in the many local vineyards, eat out in the shade of the plane trees and discover the colourful Local Gastronomy...

Or you might prefer walking or cycling and picnicking in the wonderful contrasts offered by the landscapes.

Spend the day on the beach and swim in the warm waters of the Med, just an hour's drive away.

For those who wish to go further afield - a two hour drive away - spend a day in Spain or or for a little retail therapy, take advantage of Duty-Free Shopping In Andorra.

Other Activities: Too many things to do in the area to list here, but loads of leaflets + living on site we can help you out and recommend...
