Luxurious and private: entire Catalan house or apartment only, with pool - Historic Farmhouse (6 Bedrooms) Sleeps 15



Updated: 23-Jul-2016
Apartment/Whole house Ceret, Pyrenees-Orientales, Languedoc-Roussillon, France - Secluded Location With Superb Views Of Ceret And The Mediterranean, close to Ceret

We rent our 15th century Catalan Mas (farmhouse) as a whole unit or part of it (the apartment). Renovated to the highest standards, the apartment is spacious and comfortable. The other part of the Mas is traditional in style. The whole building is ideal for two or more families or those who wish to entertain guests. Part of the building between apartment and the older part is an ancient wine-making area, renovated to become a banquet hall, with games room above. We have six acres of well-tended gardens, surrounded by the wooded slopes of the Alberes. The swimming pool has total privacy with gardens and superb views of the Roussillon plain and Mediterranean, Canigou and the distant Cevennes. We promote wildlife and often see eagles, wild boar and deer, also having our own sheep and chickens. We are only 3 km from Ceret with its cafes and lively festivals, and a 30 minute drive from beautiful beaches & marine conservation areas. The Costa Brava is only a short drive away. We offer the opportunity to stay in a uniquely private setting, in a beautifully restored building, with total tranquility & privacy, to experience life in an authentic Catalan mas decorated with original art & antiques, and to taste a flavour of easy-going French life in this beautiful part of France. Perfect for weddings, reunions, yoga retreats, conferences and corporate events - contact us for more details

About the Owner

We bought our property, Mas Pallagourdi, as a semi-derelict ancient farmhouse, set within wonderful scenery, in 2007. We have spent five years working hard to renovate the house and gardens, trying to be as environmentally friendly as possible, as well as preserving the unique character of this ancient house. We care very much about the environment, so we installed solar panels and water collection systems, planted trees and flowers to attract birds and butterflies. We have a few Cameroon sheep, and chickens provide us with eggs. We hope we have created a comfortable home from home and that our visitors enjoy our home as much as we do.

From the Owner

We fell in love with Ceret the minute we cycled into it, in the summer of 2007. We were looking for unspoilt nature, wide open spaces, a warm healthy climate, access to walking trails, mountains and sea, and we found all that in this wonderful, unspoilt area. We also found a lively culture with an emphasis on art, music, food, and joie de vivre.
