“A perfect country retreat”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2014

Close to Argeles but far enough away to be quiet, the Mas Alberes is a little gem of a chamber d'hote. The establishment is run by a charming host, Stephane, who takes great care to ensure that all your needs are catered for; he also serves up a breakfast that is both a visionary and culinary treat. The rooms are very comfortable and furnished with antiques in a French shabby chic style. The Mas itself is surrounded by fields with horses and far reaching views to the Pyrenees. It's a very special place and well worth a visit for the peace and quiet yet only being a few minutes drive away from Argeles and St Cyprien. Our only regret was being there for two nights only...not nearly enough.

It is a really charming place situated in the countryside (30 min of walk to the beach, 15 min by car to the center of Argeles) but the key of the atmosphere is … his owner! Stephane looks after his guests with a lot of kindness, he is really helpfull in every kind of eventual needs - and a great guide:-)!

Room Tip: charming atmosphere and extremly kind owner

Pleasantly situated in the countryside this home from home is hosted by Stephane who looks after his guests with kindness and us so very obviously passionate about providing a warm welcome and excellent service.
We took a two bedroom suite for a night en-route to our Christmas in Spain and instead of a stop over it became a wonderful feature in our journey.
The accommodation was superb comfortable and superbly furnished in the french style.
Breakfast was taken in a most charming room with a roaring log fire and tasteful music to accompany a plentiful spread.
We are looking forward to staying again on our return journey.

We had a lovely welcome at Mas des Alberes and Stephane was an extremely good host. He provided us with maps and local information which helped us to decide where to go and also timed our journeys. The breakfasts are amazing and kept us going until well into the evenings.There is a lovely room where you can bring your own food, with kettle and fridge and toaster and microwave,you sit around a big table and enjoy an evening in, meeting other guests . It is in a really quiet area not far from Argeles and not far from the beaches, the rooms are beautifully decorated we all thought he should be an interior designer. DON'T MISS OUT ON THE BREAKFASTS. thanks Stephane.

The area itself is lovely, we have been holidaying in Argeles for 20+ years, but this was our first stay at Mas des Alberes. The property is a stud farm about 2 miles out of town in a lovely peaceful setting, with views across to the mountains.
Our host, Stefane, was very knowledgeable about the area and strove to recommend somewhere to visit that we hadn't discovered so far. He was very accommodating and nothing was too much trouble.
The breakfast at 10 euros per person is actually well worth the money. In fact the breakfasts were amazing in terms of choice and quality, and didn't leave much room for lunch.
Beaches are close by, the place itself is about a mile from the main coast road, and secluded.
