One of the most wonderful things about Mas San Julian is the acres of beautiful parkland that are perfect for children. Our location, affords us a peaceful and secure environment and to many of our guests the open space offers a fantastic opportunity for adults and children alike to play games, swim and generally enjoy the outdoor lifestyle that is so much a part of this region of France.
The large, heated swimming pool at Mas San Julian is situated directly opposite the lodges and is surrounded by trees, shrubs and plants. The pool area can only be entered through gates that are locked to ensure child safety and to comply with French laws.
The pool is encircled by a pleasant sun terrace that is large enough to accommodate all guests without over-crowding. The shallow end can be entered by steps and the temperature is regulated for the comfort of babies and young children. At the shallow end of the pool is a gazebo for those who wish to sit in the shade whilst remaining by the pool to keep an eye on their children.

Thuir is a traditional French market town oozing with character and charm. The bustling market on a Saturday morning is tempting with the fresh local produce and paints a vivid picture of French Life. The small town has numerous good quality, friendly restaurants, bars, traiteurs, boutiques and boulangeries as well as two supermarkets, post office, tabac etc.
Thuir itself houses the largest oak vat in the world at Les Caves Byrrh and an interesting tour of the facilities where Pernod and Dubonnet are made. Castelnou, just 6 kms is a wonderful example of a fortified village sleeping peacefully behind its ramparts and enclosing a secret maze of artisans’ workshops and restaurants serving fantastic local produce.
The Pyrenees, constantly in view and a short drive away, will take you to many beautiful and interesting destinations including Prades, the birthplace of Cellist Pablo Casals and Villefranche-de-Conflent. Villefranche-de-Conflent is a fortified town dating back to the 11th and 15th centuries and a good place to catch ‘Le train Jaune’ if you prefer not to drive on the mountain roads.
