Ventenac en Minervois, with about 530 inhabitants, is an unspoiled lively village situated on the beautiful Canal du Midi and is set within the Minervois vineyards.The village has two excellent restaurants, the Lou Coustelou and La Grillade Du Château both with pleasant outside dining next to the Canal du Midi with panaramic views.
