About Aoibhinn Murphy

We bought this property in 2006. The single storey was completely derelict and the property only had the two upstairs bedrooms suitable for use. The first project was to install a pool in the garden. Then we proceeded to renovate the single storey and bring the property up to a comfortable and habitable house. Every year we try and make some improvement which will enhance your stay at Mas Conte. Last year we attached a pergola to the side of the house so that there is a shaded area for dining. This year we paved the outside terrace with a path leading to the pool. This is an ongoing project and it gives us great joy to read the remarks made in the guest book and any constructive comments are always welcome. We hope that you will enjoy your stay as much as we enjoy holidaying here with our family and friends.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Marilyn M: 06/09/12: Lovely farmhouse in a good location for our family party ages ranging from 57 to 6 months with plenty of choice of rooms for everyone. The accommodation was spotless on arrival and owners contactable and flexible with our requests.

Franchesca O: 01/09/11: Mas Conte is pretty, very spacious inside and outside with facilities as described. Has a great swimming pool including a surrounding security fence for children. The house was clean and big enough for our 3 families not to feel on top of one another. The outside BBQ area is good and we enjoyed using the ping pong table and bikes to explore. We pre-ordered beach/pool towels through Jackie the Housekeeper (great idea).

Fantastic family holiday environment for all age groups

  • 5 of 5

With 7 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms we were easily able to cope as a family group of 14 ranging from grandparents to two young toddlers. The pool is one of the best we have ever experienced and the safety fencing and gate removed all the anxieties of having lots of young children next to a pool. BBQ and outdoor eating was fantastic along with all the outdoor space to spread around. All in all a great family friendly option that we thought is first class!

Wonderful break away

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay here. The owner was very helpful when I was arranging transport and trying to find out more about the area. The house is very comfortable with lots of space (kitchen space more limited but still has everything you would need). We really enjoyed sitting outside for all our meals (great sized table, we had 9 adults). I'd recommend it particularly for a short break as its near the airport (20 mins in a taxi), and Perpignan (which is lovely). There are two nice villages either side of the house. Its 2km to St. Nazaire (short cycle on cycle track) which had a market on Sat morning and there was a butchers, supermarket, bakery etc. We also walked to Canet village (3km) and had a lovely meal there. Having a car would be better though, we didn't rent one and we needed to book taxis in advance. For us the house was really homely, was ideal for a group and would definitely work for families.

Ideal holiday location and fantastic house

  • 5 of 5

It was our second holiday at Mas Conte which easily housed 15 of us. A great place to stay surrounded by vineyards with everything so close to hand. Lovely beaches and many places to visit. Pool great fun for all ages the alfresco dining is also an added bonus. Spain not too far away only an hour to Roses which is well worth a visit. All in all a lovely venue with plenty of space. Thank you to the Murphy's and Jackie for yet another lovely holiday.

Lovely house with fantastic pool area

  • 5 of 5

Lovely house with fantastic pool area and gardens. We stayed here as a family for two weeks this summer for my parents wedding anniversary. The house comfortably accommodated 9 adults, 4 children and a dog. The location is brilliant to give a peaceful holiday away from the main town yet so close to be able to enjoy the beaches, restaurants and nightlife. We even visited the Spanish down of Figueres and the Dhali museum one evening. The covered seating area outside with large table provided a great place to eat family meals, BBQ and chill out in the evenings. An added bonus was table tennis and play equipment in the garden to keep the children entertained when they weren't in the pool.

We will definitely like to holiday at Mas Conte again! Thanks to the owners who made booking and communication regarding our stay so easy.

Comfortable holiday "Mas" in stunning location

  • 5 of 5

Our first holiday so far south and the property did not disappoint. It was a very comfortable "home from home" and catered for our large family of children and grandchildren and can highly recommend it! The pool was a great hit with all and us oldies enjoyed the swing bed in the shade and the "al fresco" dining was a great added bonus.

As we did not explore the whole area enough we have re-booked for 2016. Whether we do the drive again will need careful consideration however Perpignan airport does seem an inviting alternative as one of the daughters took advantage of it this time and found it very easy being 15 minutes away!

Great family holiday

  • 5 of 5

We needed comfortable accommodation for 7 grandchildren aged from 2 to 14 and 8 adults. Purpose of vacation to celebrate wife's 65th.

Quite a challenge but one that was perfectly solved by Mas Conte.

Every member of the party fully enjoyed their time.The property is spacious,the pool super and surrounding garden perfect for the kids.

The owners were very helpful during both initial booking process, further queries and support for our additional needs.

The property is well maintained for a holiday home/let and set up to allow a stress free time for kids and parents.

We hope to visit again and happily recommend the property to others.

There is a long sandy beach in Canet-en-Roussillon stretching down the coast as far as Collioure. This beach is 5 minutes by car or can be accessed by bicycle or bus. Canet has an abundance of restaurants with nightly entertainment throughout the summer and a lovely promenade the length of the beach. All along the coastline you will find little towns eg. Argeles, Collioure with plenty of Artisan markets, shops for browsing and good food.
