The Mas is about a mile from Oms village. Over the past few years the property has been completely restored within the original mediaeval stone walls, using the traditional materials of dressed stone and red Mediterranean tiles and wooden shutters.
The Cottage has 1 double-bedded room, 1 sleeping platform with 2 single beds. Across the courtyard is the larger Rondelle with 1 double-bedded room, 1 bedroom with 2 single beds and 1 sleeping platform with 2 further single beds. The two rental properties together with the main farmhouse and separate pool facility are set in their own fenced 5-acre wooded landscape.
Mas d'en Llinassou is an excellent base from which to explore the surrounding countryside.

Tony and Alison Parry purchased this villa in 1986
We used to come down on vacation with our children. One time we took a wrong turning, looking for the man selling firewood. Instead they sold us a wonderful ruin which had not been occupied since 1914 in a completely unspoiled spot. We've been carefully restoring the place ever since!
Oms itself is between the sea and the mountains and Spain - you can be anywhere in under an hour. At home in the Mas you are completely away from it all, no traffic no crowds, sunny days, starry nights - so different from the busy cities of home.
Mid and high season rates include pool. Low season rates pool not operating. £250 security deposit required for each rental. Linen hire £8.00 per person per week.

La Rondelle is one of two cottages adjacent to the owners' renovated farmhouse, situated down a track off a minor road near a remote hilltop village. Don't book here if you want to be minutes away from supermarkets (although there is a useful Alimentation in the nearby village of Oms), bars, restaurants and general touristy liveliness. However, if having bats whirring close by at dusk; great views across to the mountaintops that signify the French/Spanish border; spacious, comfortable living spaces; a well-equipped kitchen; a pool you can swim properly in; and access to a hidden part of French Catalonia - then La Rondelle is the perfect location. We were here at the height of late summer, so found it hard to drag ourselves away from the views and the pool, but the walking in the nearby mountains is good; there are great beaches at Argeles and Collioure (good fish restaurants); and the little town of Ceret (20 mins away down a twisty mountain road) is a gem with a marvellous Art gallery and a genuinely rural Saturday market. The owners were accessible but discreet; the property clean and thoughtfully equipped; and the resident dog Roxy a friendly but well-behaved presence.
Maison trop petite pour 6 personnes. Une seule "vraie" chambre, les autres ne sont que la mezzanine et une petite pièce en sous sol. Peux convenir pour une famille mais surement pas pour des couples voyageant ensemble. Il aurait été juste et honnête de le préciser dans l'annonce. Sinon belle localisation dans les collines, endroit reculé et calme.
