About Jean-Marc Ribet

After studying law in France and Tourism & Hotel Management in Switzerland, I've been working for starwood hotels , managing 4 and 5 star hôtels for many years, in different parts of the world. High standards and services were my main guidelines during this experience.

Jean-Marc Ribet purchased this chateau / country house in 1872

Why Jean-Marc Ribet chose Nissan-lez-Enserune

This château and private Hamlet is in my family since 1972, and I've decided to give it a new start and activity. The "farm" buildings were transformed into luxury houses rented for tourism.

What makes this chateau / country house unique

The Château La Vernède is situated in a very peacefull and calm landscape, surrounded by vineyards , far enough from neighbours and noisy roads to "listen to silence", but still at only 2 km from the nearest village… A really unique location !

A truly fabulous and outstanding property. The high standard of the property was 5 star quality and looked brand new. The facilities were perfect, with a beautiful, sparkling pool, lovely spa and table tennis. The setting was very picturesque, in the beautiful countryside, but within easy reach of towns and villages. The owners and management were 1st class and attended to our every need; nothing was too much trouble. We will definitely be returning...can't wait!

Wonderful Relaxing Holiday

  • 5 of 5

La Venede is a very special place. The accommodation is of a very high standard, where all the details have been thought through really carefully. The rooms are spacious and clean and each has its own bathroom or shower. The kitchen is fully equipped with all that you need for a week or two. There is internet access and satellite TV although we never actually put it on. The grounds are beautifully kept and the pool is especially lovely as it is surrounded by trees and is a good size for swimming. There are sun loungers and a shady areas under the umbrellas or veranda, and there is even a pool kitchen where you can put your drinks to help them stay cold. The view from our terrace was a wide open space where we saw Hoopoe birds playing in the garden, and black storks flying overhead, which for a bird watcher is a treat. It is a very peaceful and quiet place right in the middle of the countryside. The host, and his staff, were very friendly and helpful, without being intrusive. You can take a tour of the wine making process and taste some of their produce. We managed to bring a few bottles back with us which is a nice reminder of a wonderful holiday. Given the chance I would definitely go again if I wanted a relaxing holiday away from it all.

Très belles prestations et accueil

  • 5 of 5

Très calme, beaux volumes et équipements de très belle qualité dans le gîte. La piscine et le parc étaient particulièrement appréciables. Propriétaire très accueillant et réactif, sans être trop présent non plus. En bref, un excellent séjour!
