About Paul and Annette Spink

RoussillonFarmhouse and Mas D’en Porte have been in our family for the past 30 years. So popular are our properties and the region we bought the two adjoining cottages. At some stage we might even spend more time in France - as opposed to the wet and colder climate of Lancashire, UK! We have had the benefit of bringing up our son, Luke, in France and he loves the region for the sun, the sea, the mountains and the outdoor life. He learnt to windsurf, water ski, snow ski / board, mountain bike, cook and the art of hospitality. We hope you can enjoy our properties and the Roussillon region and look forward to being of service to you.

Paul and Annette Spink purchased this villa in 1997

Why Paul and Annette Spink chose Alberes

For us the Roussillon has everything - the Sun, the Sea and the Mountains...! A truly magical place.

What makes this villa unique

We enjoy the rural mountain view, within walking distance (5mins walk) of a typical friendly Catalan village, yet only 15mins to Argeles-Sur-Mer and the spectacular and picturesque Collioure.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our holiday was wonderful. We had a very good time in your amazing house, it was perfect!!! The area is great and we will definitely come back and rent one of your properties again. Mr & Mrs O, Iceland – Sept 2014

A stunning villa in a great location, and Paul and Annette were incredibly helpful from the outset. The villa is beautiful, well-maintained, and has everything for a great family holiday. Add to this the lovely location near the Pyrenees, as well as the fact that you have some lovely beaches near by and some great towns such as Ceret and Collioure just a short drive away. This is the first time we hired a villa and the experience has been fantastic, contributing to what has been a lovely holiday. Would highly recommend.

Mr & Mrs S, London – Sept 2014

We enjoyed our family holiday in the Mas D'en Porte. We loved the outside balconies and the furnishing were good. The kitchen was good and the poolside loungers and umbrellas were comfortable. It was a bit of a squeeze with 9 of us because our teenage children really need proper beds now. The owner was very helpful leading up to the holiday and gave us lots of tips before we arrives. You need iPad or computer really for local info. Loved the area: beaches and mountains were nearby. Thanks.

Mr & Mrs B, Cornwall - Aug 2014

Absolutely lovely holiday - the property was wonderful in every way. All bathrooms, kitchen and bedrooms appeared to have been recently fitted-out and very well appointed. We took two neighbouring properties as a group for the fortnight and all said we will be coming back which we most definitely will. Very helpful owners and support. Great little village with plenty to do around, fantastic beach at le Racou the restaurant le fanal is wonderful. Half hour to Spanish beaches. LOVED IT.

Mr & Mrs W, Midlands - Aug 2014

The holiday was a success and we all enjoyed the farmhouse away from the more commercialised seaside resorts & ports. The hillside location although tough on the cycle legs provided a welcome afternoon breeze during the hotter parts of the day. We probably stayed around the pool & farmhouse house half the total days we were away, swimming, reading, playing games, BBQing and eating lunches in "the cave"; very relaxing.

Mr B, Kent - August 2012

Thank you so much for an absolutely fabulous stay at your Mas in Villelongue. Everyone in the party is extremely pleased with this year's vacation and it definitely rates as the best we have had since we started doing this "la grande famille" holidaying.

The house with its facilities and the pool and the surrounding patios with the wonderful atmosphere really met all our expectations. The area in itself was superb and there is no doubt we will visit that part of France again - best ever!

Review for Mas D'en Porte

  • 5 of 5

Wow. Just home from fantastic holiday in France. We have never rented a house to holiday in before, it was fantastic. Accommodation brilliant, it's own pool and fantastic views and the location superb for the cyclists in our group. The village was lovely too with lovely restaurants and excellent food. None of us wanted to leave!!!!!

Mas D'en Porte - Perfect position

  • 5 of 5

The listing is an accurate reflection for the property and location, we hired the farmhouse and the studio accommodation for a party of 9, we all had adequate space and found the outside dining area under the arch a perfect setting to enjoy a long family evening meal. The kitchen is very well equipped, overall the accommodation clean, functional, tastefully furnished and is ideal for large families looking for a base to explore the region with the privacy of your own garden and pool upon return. The booking experience was very easy and clear , with the final instructions and guide to the house extremely comprehensive covering everything you would need to know. The hamlet of Villelongue Des Monts is very quiet, we enjoyed meals at La Pierranne, which is run by a delightful Belgium couple, the service was excellent, food exceptional and of course a great selection of Belgium Beers . A must visit close by which we loved was the Café Des Artiste in the neighbouring town of Laroque Des Alberes Guinness on tap and the food is all local produce so fresh and again delicious, the cafe also has a great atmosphere. Another must visit location is Collioure , just stunning!! We will definitely be going back to Mas d'en Porte the service was excellent, the accommodation perfect and location ideal for a relaxing break. Wish I was still there :-) Enjoy

A great place

  • 4 of 5

We chose Mas D'en Porte as it had plenty of space for our family, including a separate studio for grandparents.

It was good to meet the owners, Paul & Annette, who answered any queries we had.

The house had everything you needed, the private pool was excellent - children loved it.

A visit to Collioure is recommended, a pretty village on the coast - get there early though.

We would recommend this place to friends.

Owner's Response: It was a pleasure to have met you and your family and we were pleased that you all had a very enjoyable time. Collioure is a real spectacle and is busy in July / August. I’ve found a special parking spot, which is just 5mins walk to the centre. I’ll let you know next time..! By contrast I believe you enjoyed the stroll from the house to the village restaurants, which was more pleasant and at least you could have a nice cool drink..! Hope to be of service on another occasion.

Excellent for a big family holiday

  • 5 of 5

We had an excellent stay at the house. It worked perfectly for our family gathering and celebrations. The house was very clean and the local representative Derek was very responsive and helpful.

Parking is tight and needs to be coordinated with the guests in the other properties.

As to local gourmet restaurants, Cote Saisons was superb as was La Barvatelle. We also went to New York, New York, a burger bar on the Beach in Argeles-sur-Mer which our teenagers loved.

We also enjoyed the visit to the cloister just up the road where one of the nuns showed us round and shared the history of the place.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review and we were pleased that you had an excellent stay at our property, Mas D’en Porte, for your family gathering and special occasion. There is sufficient off-road parking for 8 cars in the court-yard and as you say, with some coordination it always seems to work fine. You certainly choose some good restaurants, although we are blessed with a good selection right on our door step, including 3 in the village which are just a 5mins walk. Hope to be of service to you and your family / friends on another occasion and it has been a pleasure assisting you to celebrate in style..!

Great Holiday

  • 5 of 5

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!
