The Languedoc-Roussillon region
With a gentle and sunny climate, the region is loved by people interested in its history, old stones or spectacular scenery, by sporting or walking enthusiasts, by tired city folk who dream of a walk along the seashore, or by the epicureans who love to indulge in good wine and food.
Catalan cuisine is characterised by the existence of a wide variety of produce which makes it a cooking-style standing apart from the rest. Its identity rests on the use of contrasting flavours: sweet/savoury…sweet/sour…and on specific culinary techniques such as ‘sofregit’ and ‘picada’. The Catalan is a ‘llaminer’ , a confectioner, a connoisseur in the preparation of sweetened fine foods. He enjoys eating his ‘llaminadures’ (confectionaries) as much as making them! Ollada, bullinada, cargolada, boles de picolat, salpiquet de mongetes, botifarres, fuet, escalivats, crema catalana …just a few examples of the delights you can taste in our department !
The Pyrenées-Orientales is a region of wines, including the Character wines such as Côtes du Roussillon reds, whites and rosés, or the ‘Festive wines’ Rivesaltes, Banyuls or Maury.
Make time to take the little roads alongside vineyards, to stop in the villages, to visit the wine-properties…the prestigious Château Valmy is just a short drive up around the lane from Mas Lamon !
If you are looking for calm and wellbeing, numerous villages offer spa therapy and treatments, benefits of spa waters or outdoor hot springs.
The Pyrenées-Orientales is the land of 2 rugby... (s) ; it is said that the Catalans have a heart "as big as that!". This heart is oval and its beat has a tendency to speed up when…. the rugby season starts! Over and above the sporting aspect, rugby is today a veritable social phenomenon in this area... whether it is to cheer on their clubs, which are USAP (XV) and the Catalan Dragons (XIII) , a veritable sea of “blood and gold” flags ripple around the stands at each match.
The Pyrenées-Orientales has a rich and diverse past; numerous sites and museums trace the history of this land, from the oldest European discovery of ancestral bones at Tautavel, the Romanesque art which is so present in Perpignan and throughout the numerous traditional villages of the area, the Cathare castles, the fortifications of Vauban which are listed as UNESCO world heritage... the list is endless…
Argelès is situated by the Mediterranean sea, surrounded by the vast forests and mountainsides of the ‘Albères’ and the Pyrenees, and just next door to the Spanish border. It is a privileged location offering more than 300 days of sunshine a year !
Argelès sur Mer offers a large variety of activities : swimming and sunbathing, of course, water sports and sailing, festivals and traditions such as the Carnival, St. Jean, 14th July etc., and musical and sporting entertainment all year round. There are numerous shops, bars, restaurants and markets to cater for all tastes.
The richness of culture, the warm climate, and the hospitality of the locals make an ideal tourist destination for your family holiday.

"Très bon séjour..."
Accueil chaleureux, logement spacieux et calme, très bon PDJ, grand jardin dans lequel notre fille s'est régalée avec en plus les anes et les poneys. Formidable séjour pour nous sur toute la ligne.

"Hosts very friendly & helpful"
The B&B room was very comfortable and the breakfast was good, sitting on owners terrace overlooking the property. Needs better signs especially on the track leading up to it.

"Lovely Location and delightful hosts"
Mas lamon is a great little gite complex of 4 gites. When we stayed for two weeks we found a delightful mix of english and french families staying at the complex. THe swimming pool was fantastic and our eldest age four learnt to swim from having a real reluctance to true proficiency. Louise and Frank are a classic anglo french couple and the stay felt like being with extended family..
THe pictures on the maslamon.fr site are very true to reality, and we enjoyed our stay. the villages around are full of great beaches we found pauliles , cobiere, and argeles sur mer all had good beaches. THe food in the area is good and there was plenty of variety, as well as a massive hyper marche at the other end of town.
we loved the short drive to the local patisserie in an old petrol station that created wonderful croissants and a wonderful black coffee.
we'd recommend taking a coffee machine or cafetiere as the ones at the gite are circa 1980, and not up to scratch. To get to the gite we flew to Barcelona as their was more choice and cheaper flights.
we'd recommend the train jaune, the castles perpetuse was spectacular, and the beaches.
plenty to do and a week or two weeks is worth it.
If going in peak late july or august be sure you don't mind the heat as the air con is fans and not a true air con system when we stayed, so for small children the heat sometimes 30 at 9pm was as hot as we'd want being british and used to 20 degree evening temperatures.
getting to the gite is an experience - everyone we spoke to over the two weeks seems to get lost - as argeles is a labrynth and there is one easy way and several hard ones!!
it is critical to approach from the hyper market as coming from south/coast leads to endless circles round the area but no obvious access route, however we did not have a sat nav, just old school maps..

"we were happy there"
For those who dream of a comfortable rest in the absence of any problems. Watch the full moon from a terrace, enjoy the magic garage for children and always pleasant pool - they make this place. You do not want to go anywhere from Mas Lamon, although there are many beautiful places around - Park Valmy, Collioure, Perpignan embankments. For families seeking tranquility, comfort and for those who like to stay with no fuss.

"Comfortable stay in a secluded country estate"
My wife and I had a most comfortable stay for a number of days in this pleasant country home, secluded, but a short drive to the nearby lovely village. We were very well looked after by the owners parents who were most helpful in recommending nearby places to visit ( the owners were away at the time of our stay). Although secluded, the directions we were given to find our destination were very clear and we had no trouble finding it. We stayed in a self contained ground floor apartment with its own entrance and enjoyed the fulfilling breakfasts provided. We have no hesitation in recommending this as a delightful place to stay.

"great area to visit, shame about the accommodation"
we loved this area in the Languedoc region, and the surrounding countryside, but were appalled at the low quality accommodation, and in particular the poor hospitality and rudeness from the owner. Oth… More
Thank you for taking the time to formulate an appreciation about your stay in our gite Neoulous in 2012.
I am genuinely sorry if you found it rude or inhospitable of me to ask you to replace the lighting and fan equipment you broke during your stay (which incidentally you never did). With holiday rental properties the basic rule is that you leave the accommodation as you found it - perhaps this was not made clear enough when you booked?
However to say that other guests had similar experiences is grossly unfair and simply not true. If you read guest comments both on this site and the numerous others that exist, we have never been criticized for "poor hospitality and rudeness" and I am quite upset that you have written this.
The same applies to the comment about "low quality accommodation". We are classed '3 épis' with Gites de France, which is the highest rating you can achieve for this type of property. The photos of the gîtes speak for themselves; they are in immaculate condition and very comfortably and well equipped. I do not understand how you can say otherwise.
I am sorry that you did not enjoy your stay with us but can honestly say that this is exceptional - we have numerous guests who return year after year and, for example, just this week 4 out of the 6 families staying with us are repeat bookings.
I only hope this reply reassures our potential and future guests.
