Cottages with pool in rural setting. Sun, sea and mountains. - The Cottage



Updated: 29-Jun-2016
Sleeps 2-4 and 4-6.

Blessed with more than 300 days of sunshine, Roussillon boasts fine cuisine, a varied landscape, from the Pyrenees to the Mediterranean with its sandy beaches, as well as a fascinating history that has left a legacy of forts and castles to explore. Come and enjoy one of France's most sought-after destinations.

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.

Fun rural retreat

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time here, the pool is really fab and the whole property layout is attractive and interesting. If you have some decent weather you may not want to move too far afield once you've bought some provisions. If you do however, Ceret is a quality small town with a first rate Saturday market, Argelès and St Cyprien have massive well kept beaches, and Colioure is a lovely coastal town which is, quite rightly, very popular. Pretty much anything you would want is somewhere nearby. Did I mention the regional wines?

From the Owner

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!

From the Owner

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.
