Chateau Ventenac sits beside the Canal du Midi in the South of France and offers fabulous views across the vineyards towards the Pyrenees. It provides a haven of peace and tranquillity and is the perfect backdrop for our writing, painting and cookery courses.
Our poetry and creative writing courses will encourage you to explore what is important to you as a poet or a writer and will offer inspiration for new directions or help you to prepare for publication. Our tutors are experts in their field and are all experienced teachers. They will encourage you and work you hard during your week with them. Expect a week of dedicated work but also some fun and laughter in the perfect surroundings of the Chateau and Languedoc landscape.
Join the Vegetarian Cookery School for a culinary break. Our five day/four night residential course will give you the opportunity to learn seasonal Mediterranean cookery with Rachel Demuth, owner of the award winning Demuth’s Vegetarian Restaurant in Bath, now in its 20th year.
The terraced gardens and private swimming pool are designed for family fun, privacy and relaxation, with spaces to play games and for relaxing in the shade or soaking up the ever present Languedoc sun. Dine on the terrace overlooking the Canal du Midi with views over vineyards to the hills of Corbieres and the Pyrenees beyond.
The views from Château Ventenac are spectacular, which is 35 minutes from the sunny Mediterranean beaches and just half an hour to the Medieval City of Carcassonne. The Pyrenees are just over an hours drive away.
