Village of Montolieu
A book village a bit like Hey on Wye. Take the D38 west out of Ventenac toward Moussoulens then head north on the D629. Return on the D148 and D203 via the village of Aragon. A pleasant little village even if you're not a bookworm.
Canal du Midi
Is always very pleasant to walk or cycle along the Canal du Midi. The nearest point to Ventenac is about 5km down through Pezens and on the D48 towards Caux Sauzens.
