My wife and I stayed in the Mas for a week in June. We loved the area which is in a beautiful part of the French Pyrenees and only some 10-15 minutes drive to the Spanish border.
Montferrer is the nearest village, just a 10 minute stroll up the road, where you will find a nice restaurant, cafe and post office. The locals seemed to be very welcoming and friendly. The closest town is Arles Sur Tech some 20 minutes drive where you will find a small supermarket and several restaurants.
The Mas is in a lovely setting with superb views,a huge swimming pool and very comfortably furnished with plenty of room. It was lovely to sit in the conservatory in the evening looking out over the hills. The owners are on hand to assist if required but will not disturb you.
The location is quite remote and off the tourist trail but it is well worth the drive. There are plenty of places to visit both locally and further afield in Spain and there are some nice walks starting from outside the property. The Med coast is about an hour's drive but we didn't get time to explore it as we spent quite a bit of our week relaxing at the Mas.
In summary we would recommend this property if you are looking for peace and quiet in stunning scenery.
We spent a wonderful holiday in this splendid place. The Mas is just fabulous, with an exquisite view of the mountains, a gorgeous swimming pool and a spacious green. We were welcomed by the very nice and discrete owners.
For anyone who wants a holiday with many diverse activities, this is the place to be: the seaside not too far away, the mountains with many trails, the Spanish hinterland, Figueres and further in Spain, Barcelona within reach,
The house offers a perfectly equipped kitchen, beautifully furnished rooms, an outdoor "kitchen à la plancha". Here, you can still 'hear' silence, ... Montferrer is a tiny, sympathetic village where you can get your bread and cheese and croissant. You can easily walk up to the village, where you'll find just one tiny restaurant.
Although we were herefor 3 weeks, we still haven't explored all the possibilities of the area. So, we'll be back!
Would like to thank Linda for a lovely holiday at her excellent villa. Set in a beautiful area with a lovely swimming pool. The villa and grounds were as shown in the photos, all clean and very well maintained. It was a shame that we couldn't of stayed longer, maybe next time!
