Mas St. Joseph - Studio (self-catering)

Pool and Patio

Farmhouse -
3 Bedrooms , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 5
Ille-sur-Tet, Pyrenees-Orientales, Occitanie
Mas St Joseph was built in 1790 as the living quarters for the adjacent monastery and is therefore steeped in history. Much of the original monastery has now been incorporated into the peach farm, forming an additional farmhouse and various barns. The chapel is situated on the opposite side. The mas, which has beautiful views across the peach orchards to the hills and mountains beyond, still retains much of the tranquil atmosphere from its past. Various items of traditional Catalan brocante are on display and are available for purchase.

On the ground floor the entrance hallway, with exposed stonework and beams, has a large refectory table. There are two guest sitting rooms, both with satellite TV and comfortable sofas: the first living room contains tourist information for guest use ( maps, books, pamphlets), a granule burner for he...

How to get there
Airport: Perpignan: 15.5 mi
Railway: Ille-sur-Tet: 0.6 mi
We are easy to find, especially if you are coming from Perpignan. In Perpignan, just follow the signs for Andorra La Vieille or Prades and take the N116 west for about 24 km then take the Ille-sur-Tet turn-off. From centre ville, just follow the signs for Thuir. About 1 km out of town (past the 'Ille Fruit' roundabout) you will see a blue sign with St. Joseph. Turn right and then it's just the short driveway up to the Mas...

If you are coming from the A9 autoroute, take the D612, following the signs for Thuir, until, just outside Thuir, you come to the McDonalds roundabout. Do not take the Thuir exit, but go over the roundabout towards Ille-sur-Têt. Keep following the signs to Ille, through several roundabouts. Just after the roundabout with alternate direction Boulternè...
