About the property

Mas Des Fleurs - Perpignan

'Mas Des Fleurs' is a secluded haven amongst vineyards, fruit orchards and vegetable farms. It's a glorious setting with extensive gardens and a large spring water filled swimming pool, yet is walking distance to the historic and colourful city of Perpignan and only 10 minutes by car to the Mediterranean's long, sweeping beaches.

'Mas Des Fleurs' comprises 3 gites. It can be rented as an individual holiday home or as part of the cluster which is ideal for a large family group holiday - total accommodation sleeps up to 14 guests in 3 gites plus 3 babies in cots.

- 10 minutes from km's of unspoilt beaches

- 2 mins to the City Centre whilst retaining a very rural feel

- 2 mins from the local Bakery which is open every day from 8am-8pm (Sunday 8am -1pm)

- Close to huge amounts of outdoor activities including Sigean Wildlife Park, Gorges, Yellow Train, Collioure, Leucate, Palais de Rois Majorque

- 15 mins from Perpignan Airport

- Heated enclosed pool - 16m

- Free Bicycles to use x 4

'Mas Des Fleurs' itself is bordered by an Apricot orchard, Olive grove and vine and palm tree nurseries, and is situated in the centre of a unique conservation area of fruit and vegetable farms called Les Jardins des St. Jacques. There is a lovely restaurant in walking distance from the farmhouse and 'Les Jardins SJ' is also home to a historic and picturesque village (Chateau Roussillon) and two first class vineyards. Plus, the beautiful city of Perpignan, with fabulous shopping, pavement cafes and historic sites is only a short bike ride or two minute car journey from the farmhouse. Throughout the year there are many festivals in the palm-tree lined city, while the old quarter is home to several multi-cultural food markets and full of fascinating Catalan architecture.

It's a truly superb region for any type of holiday at any time of year, with windsurfing, kitesurfing, walking , climbing, skiing, tennis, and golf all within easy reach. From exploring The Pyrenees and Spain to soaking up the sun of The Med or touring the vineyards of the Roussillon region, there's a new activity in every direction. Roussillon is the sunniest part of France with approximately 320 sunshine days a year. Autumn is a real treat with balmy temperatures providing a welcome break from colder parts of Europe. The Med resorts of Canet, Barcares, St.Cyprien and Argeles, all with expansive golden beaches, are just minutes away. The famous and beautiful Collioure, Ceret and Figueres in Spain are loaded with artistic history. All around are views of the majestic Pyrenees while the lush surrounding countryside is quite simply carpeted with sun baked vineyards. If all that was not enough, the lovely Costa Brava of Spain is Roussillon's southern neighbour.

Perfect late summer holiday in the South of France

  • 5 of 5

Mimosa is a gem of a holiday home in the wall to wall sunshine of Perpignan. We appreciated the aircon in the bedrooms for a restful night's sleep. The location was fabulous next to the pool area making it easy to pop back to the gite for meals on the delightful terrace. Highlights for us were the heated pool in a tranquil and stunning garden followed by evenings in Collioure sampling the delicious local cuisine. Thank you to James and Ilona for making us so welcome...... I especially enjoyed cycling to the Boulangerie each morning for our croissants and baguettes. We will definitely recommend to friends and very much hope to return one day. Melling Family 29/8 - 5/9/17

Fabulous summer holiday

  • 5 of 5

What a cracking week. Mimosa offers really good accommodation - loads of space (incl aircon in bedrooms), fab kitchen, lovely outdoor BBQ/ eating area (note: take your mozzie repellent). The huge pool is heaven. Gardens so lovely, including fab veggie garden we were invited to pick from. Trampoline and play area brilliant for 2.5 and 6 year olds alike. Pleasant 30 min walk into Perpignan which is a great city to explore, eat/drink and to buy food/ wine to bring home. A day out at the beach at Canet Sud (go to Robinson for sun loungers and lunches/ drinks) is superb. James and Ilona are brilliant hosts. Can't wait to go back again (next time for 2 weeks!).

Living like a local

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in the little farm-house. The pool invited us to a nice morning swim or in the evening - after a lovely day out - to relax and have fun. We discovered the surroundings of Perpignan - great beaches (sand or pebble), stunning routes by car, lovely little towns. Simply - we had a perfect vacation! Thank you!

Great holiday!

  • 5 of 5

We had a spacious property, cosy ambience, and the hearty hosts (James and his wife) makes us feel at home immediately. Very well equipped and furnished apartment. We didn´t miss anything. Nice relaxing garden, great pool, kids are warmly welcome. Top location as a starting point to visit Perpignan (5 min by car), beautiful beaches are only 10 min away. We left Mas de Fleurs feeling well recovered.

Excellent family holiday location.

  • 5 of 5

All our family thoroughly enjoyed the facilities available at this holiday rental. The property is well managed and spacious. It would suit a family celebration where several families can stay and enjoy separate facilities within the same location. The beaches are superb with safe bathing for children. Perpignan is walking distance and offers some great sites and a variety of restaurants to suit all culinary tastes. Would definitely have another holiday here.

Stunning property with amazing hosts

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a fantastic stay at Mas des Fleurs this summer, a secret oasis within walking distance of Perpignan. James and Ilona are fantastic hosts, recommending amazing restaurants, beach clubs and local music festivals to make our stay a week to remember. The Mimosa House is a beautiful gite, lovely and cool inside with a great terrace to enjoy a chilled bottle (or two!) of rose and a BBQ.

We have already booked our stay for next year!
