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 ...Mas St Joseph was built in 1790 as the living quarters for the adjacent monastery and is therefore steeped in history.

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 heating in winter. The second living room is more spacious with two leather sofas, a drinks fridge (honour system) and French doors leading out to the Moroccan style patio/courtyard where we have an outside kitchen (with gas BBQ, plancha etc.), plus teak garden table and chairs. On the other side of the swimming pool is our 'Moroccan corner' a comfortable seating area. Around the pool in summer, are a number of sun-beds for guests use. A 20 minute walk with magnificent views through the peach orchards leads to the market town of Ille-sur-Tet. The Studio On the top floor of the Mas, with window views to both Canigou and Les Aspres is the Studio Catalan which has a mezzanine level sleeping up to 3 people: 2 single beds (or 1 extra large double) plus a futon bed. With a couple sleeping on a sofa bed in the main room, the maximum sleeping capacity is 5 persons. As well as a compact shower room/WC, there is a dining table and a kitchenette with fridge, microwave, induction hotplate, tea and coffee making facilities, but no oven. There is a wide screen TV with satellite TV and DVD player as well as a pull down cinema screen and ceiling mounted digital projector. The room also has a small library and two comfortable sofas. In view of the stairs to the mezzanine, the studio is not suitable for the elderly, the disabled, or children. The low sloping roof in the mezzanine should also be taken into account with regard to access to the beds. The studio is self-catering although breakfast can be provided at an additional cost. Picnic lunches and table d'hotes (meal options include Tapas, 2 course, 3 course or 4 course evening meals) are also available on request, Meals are prepared by Kate who has extensive experience as a chef.

About the neighbourhood
A half-hour drive east takes you to Perpignan and lovely Mediterranean beaches, and to the west lie the majestic Pyrenees. With Cathar country to the north and Spain just an hour's drive south, the region abounds with things to see & do.
Getting around
We do strongly recommend that to make the most of their stay here, guests should arrive in their own vehicle. There are so many wonderful sights and things to do in every direction: mountains, rivers, stunning old Romanesque buildings, beautiful Mediterranean beaches and of course Spain, just down the road...
