“A brilliant pkace to stay, a great location, a great time!”
Reviewed 21 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

First of all, a great place to stay, the cottages that my family stayed in were well equipped, well maintained, with all of the facilities required to have a relaxing and fun time.

I rented the two cottages Canigou & Des Alberes for my extended family. The party consisted of 8 people, ages from 3 years to 76 years. All family members loved the cottages and the location.

The service provided:

• ‘It does what it says on the pack’, the advert and information on the web site for the cottages is absolutely precise and is not misleading. I got what I expected.
• The whole experience from initial enquiry, booking, payments, documentation, stay, return home, and deposit return has been completely professional.
• The contact person in France, is English and French speaking, and very helpful. This gives confidence as there is help to hand if something does go wrong, although nothing did go wrong.
• The documentation and information provided by the owners is best in class.

The location:

• Cottages are located in a Small village at the base of the mountain range, quiet, private and tranquil, great views.
• Argeles North beach, Argeles-Sur-Mer village, Saint Cyprien fishing village and the Port of Collioure are all within a 25 minute drive.
• Collioure is a brilliant place to visit, great restaurants, brilliant fortress built on the seaside cliffs. Best to take the boat to Collioure from Argeles, great experience.
• Beaches at Argeles are brilliant, specifically North Plage.
• Supermarket is located in the next village, 5 minutes drive, provides a great range of fish, meats and other fresh food to help ensure great barbeque evening’s around the pool.

The experience:

• Most days spent at the beautiful beaches, evening’s around the pool barbequing. Young twins loved this, swimming in the sea by day, pool in the evening. Sun was in the right places, at the right times from 09:00 to 22:00 hours.
• The location accommodates all of the family requirements, great beaches, great places to visit (castles, fishing ports), and great food (both in terms of home cooking and restaurants).
• I was initially nervous about the location with respect to distance from the beaches, but in the end I found it to be a perfect to stay as all main attractions were within 20-25 minutes drive.
• The cottages are really lovely, the rooms are spacious and clean, enough shower/bath rooms so you do not get under each other’s feet, pool is marvellous, and the seating areas around the pool well placed with sufficient equipment for all.
• A great part of the world for a holiday, cottages good for all age groups.

Overall, we all loved it. I will most likely return.

Thank you for your very comprehensive and detailed account of your family holiday and of the accommodation at our two adjacent cottages, Des Alberes & Canigou. It was pleasing to note that you found our properties were a great place to stay and that the accommodation was suitable for your age group of 3 to 76 years, including the use of the pool in the evening. We hope to be able to accommodate you again at some stage for another relaxing and fun time in our quiet village, close to the family orientated beaches at Argeles Sur Mer and Collioure.

“Ideal accommodation in a most interesting region”
Reviewed 19 July 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 7 June 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 3 June 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 1 June 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.

“Excellent holiday all round”
Reviewed 31 May 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.
