The Old Pumphouse
Mas de la rivière is an old catalan farm set on the banks of the river têt and in it's own oasis of over an acre of mature gardens. It consist of 3 houses, the owners house, the old Farmhouse and the Old Pumphouse each with their private outside area with BBQ, table sun lounges etc..These outbuildings used to house the pumps to draw water from a well into a large basin for the irrigation of the surrounding fields. The basin has been removed and the building has been converted into a luxury, air conditioned, four bedroom bungalow .
The house consists of :
- A large living/dining/open kitchen area with views of the magnificent Canigou mountain at the back, french doors to a private patio area at the front. The kitchen is equipped with electric oven, hob, microwave oven, fridge, dishwasher etc.. In the lounge, there is a Stereo TV with reception of the standard french channels as well as a Sky Satellite receiver for the free-to-view channels , FM radio and DVD/Divx/CD/MP3 player (we have a DVD library for your use ).
- Two bedrooms with double beds, both with french doors opening unto the garden.
- One bedroom with twin beds
- One small bedroom with bunk beds
- Two bathrooms, one with shower and one with bath (and shower in bath
At the Mas there are three houses: the owners house built where the stables used to be, the original farmhouse and the converted pumphouse. They share the large grounds including the large swimming pool (13 x 7 m) with a spring board for diving into the 3m deep end. There is a shower room and laundry room for communal use in the grounds. There is a childrens play area, a badmington/volleyball net and a pingpong table to entertain children as well as teenagers and the not so young. It is a very safe place for children as it is set well away from the road and there are plenty of safe gardens for them to play in.
Each of the properties however has its own patio with outdoor eating area, BBQ , lounge chairs etc..
All outdoor maintenance, daily pool cleaning, etc.. is taken care of by the owners. A Wifi signal for a broadband connection is available in both houses and by the pool for sending/receiving emails, checking flights etc..
An excellent location for exploring the coast and the Pyrenees mountains or simply relaxing in a delightful setting.
It is on the edge of the village of villelongue de la salanque which is a quaint old french village totally untouched by the tourism that surrounds it. The pretty village of canet-en-roussillon is only a couple of miles away. The location of the mas is ideal as despite being in the heart of the country surrounded by farms and vineyards it is close to the sandy beaches of the cote vermeille with the resorts of canet and st. Marie just a few minutes away. It is also close to the cosmopolitan city of perpignan (only a few minutes drive) and to all the major link roads to take you up to the mountains or down to Spain.
There is a shopping center with a hypermarket just about 5 minutes away

The Languedoc-Roussillon region
The Roussillon area of France is the most southern and the sunniest part of France. It is a beautiful region, marked by the variety and contrast of its landscape : to the south the beaches give way to rocky bays and traditional fishing harbours around Collioure, Port Vendres and Spain beyond; To the west, the vineyards and fruit tree farms of the Tech and Têt Valleys lead up to the massif du Canigou the peak of which (at about 2785m high) is snow capped most of the year and visible from all along the coast.
The region is proud of its clear coastal lagoons, which provide a haven for all kinds of wildlife, and are often tinged pink by flocks of flamingos.
Almost 40 beaches and ports in Languedoc-Roussillon fly the blue flag, the European award for clean bathing water.
Beach, all water sports, fishing, sailing, wind surfing, kite surfing, jet skiing, fun fair, water park, canyoning, hiking, coastal walks, diving, deep sea fishing, boat hire, cycling, horse riding, golf, mini golf, karting, historical monuments, chateaux, wineries, museums, festivals, concerts, tennis, swimming.......

I would definitely recommend staying here to everyone. The accommodation was impeccably cleaned and the owners were wonderful. The pool was a major plus point and the sunlit poolside area with sun loungers was lovely. It was easy to spend a day relaxing there with a book. Equally good was the location as Canet beach is a short cycle ride away and Perpignan was great for shopping and restaurants.

"The best and most adaptable we have discovered in the South of France"
We have travelled to this area - where we have family - for some years and over the years have made a number of close friends. The warm welcome we received was outstanding and throughout our stay we found we could always given helpful and practical advice over shops, restaurants, etc and suggestions for all sorts of places to visit. This is a rural situation with wonderful views, especially of the Canigou, but at the same time there are all sorts of lovely towns within short driving distances, while Perpignan, more-or-less "on the doorstep" is a lovely city with every possible facility.

"Brilliant time had by all in superb surroundings."
The hosts and family to the newly built "pumphouse" are very welcoming and friendly and were very informed about what to do and where to go. The swimming pool and patio area are fantastic as are the various fruit trees, which are in abundance - freshly picked and squeezed orange juice 10 metres away!!! We would recommend this to anyone especially families.
