Quiet, family friendly house in an idyllic spot.

  • 5 of 5

We were two families, total of 8 people who visited this house one week. The house was very big, with four decent sized bedrooms. There were also 3 very nice bathrooms with excellent showers. Ron and Dick were very helpful and kept the pool in pristine condition at all times. The pool suits both old and young people and helped us keep cool in the very warm weather. I also managed to find what has to be one of the worlds best spots for our hammock. The house is a bit far from the nearest bakery which is in town. This is a 40 minute walk or 15 minute drive. Prats de Mollo is worth several visits though!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review, you were coming from so far (Norway) so it seems it was worth traveling all to the South of France. Enjoy your winter in Bergen, Norway.

Maison Xatart, our mountain refuge.

  • 4 of 5

We loved the self-catering accommodation, which was beautifully but simply furnished, with a well-equipped kitchen and convivial dining area. Our hosts were helpful, informative and never intrusive. They pride themselves, quite rightly, on the well-chosen decor and the clean, orderly standard of presentation. We enjoyed the company of their well-behaved pets on the terrace from which we took in the spectacular views. We swam in the pool and walked the footpaths around the property. Prats de Mollo is a charming town with pleasant bars and restaurants, a helpful tourist office, a well-stocked grocery store and a market on Fridays. The drive up to Maison Xatart from the town was a bit of a challenge, due to the road surface having suffered during winter rains. However, we gather it is due to be repaired in the near future, so this will not be an ongoing problem. We would recommend this property to our friends, and would certainly visit again.

Ideal for motorbike and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We have spent one week with Dick and Ron at their beautiful farmhouse. We stayed in La Camelia. The accommodation was very nice and spacious. The hosts are very friendly and helpful. They help you with finding nice trails for hiking, biking and motorbiking.

The region is nice for motorbiking. Nice asphalt, many bends and beautiful views.

We made a beautiful tour of 270 Km, with only 5 Km without curves. Fantastic!

We also did a very nice hike from the farmhouse to the village Prats de Mollo and back. A nice walk over the hill and through the forest. In the little village you have enough terraces for a drink and relax a little. The food is good, and there is even Wi-fi on most of the terraces.

Doing 'nothing' the whole day is also a good possibility. Sun and swimming pool, and there is always something to see: the nice little dogs and other animals or sometimes some deer or swine in one of the fields surrounding the farmhouse.

We've really enjoyed ourselves. So, Till next time!!

Don't miss out on this one!

  • 5 of 5

Mas Taillet was, without a doubt, the most beautiful guesthouse we have ever stayed in. The landscape is simply breathtaking and the house itself is gorgeous: rural, with all the facilities you need.

The owners are very nice and helpful. Allthough they live there, we never had the feeling we were 'visitors'. Ron and Dick know how very well how to mix their lives, their work and the guests privacy and wellbeing.

The only disadvantage I can think of was the long, small, mountain road going down to the village, which leads to the nearest supermarket. But to be honest, that's exactly what makes this place so special: the house and the landscape are pretty remote, but you'll never feel lonely. And the drive down to the sweet village at the foot of the mountain is, to say the least, worth your trouble. :)

I'd recommend this place to anyone. We went with our son, who was 5 months at the time, and 5 other family members and had a fantastic week. Admittingly, the weather was great and that helps ofcourse!

Regards,

Wim, Ilse and Gijs

Verblijf in Mas Taillet, Prats de Mollo

  • 5 of 5

Echt een aanrader: "Mas Taillet" in Prats de Mollo! Eind zomer 2011 verbleven wij met 6 personen in het huisje. Alles klopte: het uitzicht op de bergen, de gastvrijheid van Dick en Ron, het fijne ruime schone huis, het zwembad, ook van de dieren hebben wij en onze kleine van een half jaar erg genoten! Ook is er volop ruimte om te zonnen en buiten te ontbijten, wat het vakantiegevoel de hoogte van de bergen bijna evenaart :-). Ik zit over een nadeel na te denken, maar kan die eigenlijk niet verzinnen..
