Spacious living areas for large family group holidays

Château Ventenac is a charming and ideally located big house for large family group holidays.  The spacious and flexible living space provides excellent large group accommodation.

On the ground floor, the following rooms are all linked by double doors:


The spacious French country kitchen is well-equipped for catering for the demands of large family group holidays, with two ovens, a large range top with four burners and a separate griddle.  We provide plenty of crockery, cutlery and (essential in this part of the world) wine glasses.

You will find everything you need for cooking, from a garlic press to a pestle and mortar; a coffee grinder to cafetieres. Two large refrigerators and a freezer provide good storage, whilst the two dishwashers make clearing up as simple as possible.

To help you settle in, we provide a starter pack of essential supplies.

For winter holidays, the big open fire is particularly welcoming – we keep a ready supply of logs for guests’ use.


The Library provides a haven of peace during large family group holidays

The Library


With double doors from the drawing room and to the dining hall, the library is used in many ways:

 – as a den or study; and

 – somewhere for the children to hang out.

The library contains some of the Château’s library of books, ranging from many popular novels to poetry and factual books. Our collection of games is also here for you to enjoy.


There is a fully-equipped laundry room in the cellar.
