“Ideal accommodation in a most interesting region”
Reviewed July 19, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

All dealings with the owners, from initial enquiry to post-holiday matters were handled most professionally, promptly and to our complete satisfaction. The property itself proved ideal for our travelling group of six people, providing very comfortable and roomy accommodation. Our expectations were fully met.
Most of time was spent travelling in the region rather than around the property itself and from that point of view the property was a perfect base. Daily trips enabled us to travel to Carcassonne and the Cathar castles in the north to Figures (Dali Museum) and Roses in Northern Spain to the South. We loved shorter trips to Collioure and Banyuls Sur Mer on the coast and to Ceret for the market and modern art museum. Perpignan was an easy trip. We especially enjoyed walking the Gorge de la Fou and visiting the "Orgues" (Organ Pipes) near Ille sur Tet. The medieval town of Villefrance de Conflient and the impressive Abbeye St Martin were accessible on another day trip. Many other villages and towns were easily accessible for leisurely visits - Laroque and Thuir being standouts.
Overall a most enjoyable holiday in a comfortable, charming property. We have suggested a couple of small practical matters to the owners to provide an even better experience. However, we would have no hesitation in recommending the property or for that matter, returning ourselves.

We dined at some excellent restaurants. La Pierreanne in the local village was a delight, La Gamate in Argeles sur Mer provided an excellent lunch but our favourite was a new restaurant in Le Boulou called La Via Dometia. The service, quality, presentation, ambience and value was outstanding.

Thank you for your review and we were pleased to hear that you all had a most enjoyable holiday in our property, Mas D'en Porte, and that it fully met your expectations. You certainly made the most of your time and visited some very interesting and varied places of interest in both France and Spain and came across some restaurants we’ve not have the opportunity to experience ourselves yet. It’s been a pleasure dealing with you too and we hope to be of service on another occasion.

Thank you for your positive recommendation and glad to hear that you found our property to be well equipped, and in a good location. We understand that you visited one of the village restaurants, Pierreanne which is just a 5 minute walk and one at the beach resort of Le Racou, near Argeles Sur Mer. We trust that this added to your overall holiday experience and we hope to be able to accommodate you and your family again at some stage in the future.

“Quiet, calm and beautiful”
Reviewed June 7, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

We stayed at the Cottage Canigou for almost five months, from early January to late May. Had such a lovely time. The house is an old, beautiful place with wooden floors and a fire oven. Very much how you would imagine a picturesque little place on the French countryside. The surroundings are quiet, the village is calm and the little garden is really the cherry on the cake.

Only thing to watch out for is heating during the winter months. The house is made of stone, rather poorly insulated and probably built to keep the heat out during the summer. Therefore, it can get quite cold inside the house in January-February. Logs for the fire oven are mandatory during this period, so make sure to have room for that extra expense in your budget.

Dealing with Paul and Annette has been an absolute pleasure. They have been very obliging and helpful. The housekeeper Derek deserves some extra credit as well, always nice, very sympathetic and service-minded.

We would definitely recommend this property to a friend, and we would not mind going back there ourselves.

Thank you Paul & Annette!

Hi Espen & Alexandra – thank you for your review having been in Cottage Canigou for 5 months until May, you certainly experienced the winter / spring and early summer months and I’m sure it was pleasant compared to Sweden. As your objective was to be immersed in the typical French village and to learn the language it seems as though you made a number of friends and hopefully you will be able to return at some stage – so look forward once again to accommodating you both. Good luck with your studies.

“Great holiday”
Reviewed June 2, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

With a group of 8 adults and 2 young children we have spent 10 days in Villelongue-dels-Monts in the South of France. In the house Mas D'en Porte we’ve had a very pleasant holiday. A large house with several terraces, well furnished and plenty of comfort such as dishwasher, washing machine, kitchen utensils etc. Great views from the upper terrace on the private swimming pool, the Mountains and on a clear day the sea. Worth a visit is Collioure, a cute town nearby. For those who like to eat oysters, I recommend Maillol Café in St. Cyprien Plage. In that village is a very large market on Tuesday. All in all a nice environment and a more than fine accommodation!

“Beautiful house, brilliant location, great holiday!”
Reviewed June 1, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Myself and a group of friends have just returned from our stay celebrating one of our birthdays, and it was a thoroughly enjoyable experience from start to finish. Booking the property was a breeze and Paul was extremely helpful offering us all sorts of tips and advice on the local area.

The property was a beautiful large farm house with all the amenities you could wish for. The pool was perfect for a bit of quiet relaxation while taking in the stunning views. A short five minute walk had us into the quaint little town which is host to a bar, restaurants and a shop with boulangerie, there is also a market on a Wednesday.

If you want to venture a little further afield all kinds of activities await you only 20minutes drive in any given direction! There's all kinds of beaches with water sports on offer, water parks, go karting and larger towns and cities to explore.

An idyllic place for a relaxing getaway but with plenty going on to keep everyone entertained, cant recommend Roussillon Farmhouse enough.

We are blessed by having a bar, 3 restaurants and a shop / boulangerie – all within just a stroll from the house and were able to make good use of them for your celebrations. Happy to have you back – we will be pleased to assist you again.

“Excellent holiday all round”
Reviewed May 31, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Second time for us at the Mas d'en Porte and probably not the last. Very clean throughout. Great kitchen with everything you need - even the wine cooler (essential for your med holiday).
Very close to beaches, le Racou is great. Collioure and Ceret are well worth visiting as is Carcassone which is a very reachable day trip. Very helpful , responsive and non intrusive caretaker available when needed. Definitely recommended.
All bedding was new & clean as were towels. Bathrooms and kitchens stunning and bedrooms similarly.
No issues with crime but isn't this just a matter of being vigilant? The property itself is very secure with shutters for when you go out. Not sure how this is the owners fault if you leave windows/ doors open.
We are now the 3 to 73 age group and keeping that demographic happy isn't easy but the Rousillon farmhouse does it with aplomb.
Recommended and likey to return.

Dear Louise

It was a pleasure to have been able to accommodate you and your extended family and friends from all over the world during long stay with us from November 2014 to February 2015. We were pleased that you had a great Christmas and New Year at our property and were able to experience the contrast of the Mediterranean setting and to have enjoyed skiing in Pyrenees 2000, some 100kms away.

Thank you for your recommendation and we are looking forward to welcoming you back again in October 2015 for another visit with us. In the meantime, we wish you all the very best now that you are back home in Australia.
