In the lounge, there is a Stereo TV with reception of the standard french channels as well as a Sky Satellite receiver for the free-to-view channels , FM radio and DVD/Divx/CD/MP3 player (we have a DVD library for your use ). - Two bedrooms with double beds, both with french doors opening unto the garden. - One bedroom with twin beds - One small bedroom with bunk beds - Two bathrooms, one with shower and one with bath (and shower in bath At the Mas there are three houses: the owners house built where the stables used to be, the original farmhouse and the converted pumphouse. They share the large grounds including the large swimming pool (13 x 7 m) with a spring board for diving into the 3m deep end. There is a shower room and laundry room for communal use in the grounds. There is a childrens play area, a badmington/volleyball net and a pingpong table to entertain children as well as teenagers and the not so young. It is a very safe place for children as it is set well away from the road and there are plenty of safe gardens for them to play in. Each of the properties however has its own patio with outdoor eating area, BBQ , lounge chairs etc.. All outdoor maintenance, daily pool cleaning, etc.. is taken care of by the owners. A Wifi signal for a broadband connection is available in both houses and by the pool for sending/receiving emails, checking flights etc.. An excellent location for exploring the coast and the Pyrenees mountains or simply relaxing in a delightful setting. It is on the edge of the village of villelongue de la salanque which is a quaint old french village totally untouched by the tourism that surrounds it. The pretty village of canet-en-roussillon is only a couple of miles away. The location of the mas is ideal as despite being in the heart of the country surrounded by farms and vineyards it is close to the sandy beaches of the cote vermeille with the resorts of canet and st. Marie just a few minutes away. It is also close to the cosmopolitan city of perpignan (only a few minutes drive) and to all the major link roads to take you up to the mountains or down to Spain. There is a shopping center with a hypermarket just about 5 minutes away More

We stayed here for a month in June 2015. The house was ideal. Far enough away from the main house for privacy, but close enough for any help we needed. Our sons are 5 and 3 and loved the open garden spaces, five very friendly...More
