Description

Mas St Joseph was built in 1790 as the living quarters for the adjacent monastery and is therefore steeped in history. Much of the original monastery has now been incorporated into the peach farm, forming an additional farmhouse and various barns. The beautiful chapel is situated on the opposite side. The mas, which has beautiful views across the peach orchards to the hills and mountains beyond, still retains much of the tranquil atmosphere from its past. Various items of traditional Catalan brocante are on display and are available for purchase.

On the ground floor the entrance hallway, with exposed stonework and beams, has a large refectory table (and side board with tea and coffee making facilities), ideal for meals when guests wish to eat inside. There are two guest sitting rooms, both with satellite TV and comfortable sofas: the first living room contains tourist information for guest use ( maps, books, pamphlets), a granule burner for heating in winter, and an electric

There are two guest sitting rooms, both with satellite TV and comfortable sofas: the first living room contains tourist information for guest use ( maps, books, pamphlets), a granule burner for heating in winter, and an electric cool box for guest use in summer. The second living room is more spacious with two leather sofas and French doors leading out to the Moroccan style patio/courtyard where we have a barbecue, plus teak garden table and chairs. On the other side of the swimming pool is our 'Moroccan corner' a comfortable seating area. Around the pool in summer, are a number of sunbeams for guests use. In the summer guests usually take their breakfast on the patio in front of the house next to the Japanese zen garden. However, guests may also choose to have breakfast on the back patio next to the pool. In winter, breakfast is served in the main hall at the refractory table.

A 20 minute walk with magnificent views through the peach orchards leads to the market town of Ille-sur-Tet. Well maintained bicycles (all road) are also available to rent for exploring the area.

The Studio

On the top floor of the Mas, with window views to both Canigou and Les Aspres is the Studio Catalan which has a mezzanine level sleeping up to 3 people: 2 single beds (or 1 extra large double) plus a futon bed. With a couple sleeping on a sofa bed in the main room, the maximum sleeping capacity is 5 persons. As well as a compact shower room/WC, there is a dining table and a kitchenette with fridge, microwave, tea and coffee making facilities, but no stove or oven. There is a wide screen TV with satellite TV and DVD player as well as a pull down cinema screen and ceiling mounted digital projector. The room also has a small library and two comfortable sofas. In view of the stairs to the mezzanine, the studio is not suitable for the elderly, the disabled, or children. The low sloping roof in the mezzanine should also be taken into account with regard to access to the beds.

The studio prices include a generous continental breakfast.

Please note although the studio includes self-catering facilities, we are a chambres d'hotes (Bed and Breakfast) and not a gite. Our delicious continental breakfast is included in the price of accommodation. Picnic lunches and table d'hotes (meal options include Tapas, 2 course, 3 course or 4 course evening meals) are also available on request, Meals are prepared by Kate who has extensive experience as a chef.

Location description from owner

The Occitanie region

Set amidst peach orchards, with views of the foothills and distant ridges of Mount Canigou, Mas St. Joseph is a haven of peace. A delightful stroll or bike ride through the orchards takes you to the picturesque market town of Ille-sur-Tet, with its old medieval quarter of narrow streets and ancient churches. Walking a little further one crosses the Tet river to Les Orgues - the ancient geological formations for which the area is famous.

In the other direction you can walk directly from the house, past cherry orchards and vineyards up into the forests of Les Apres, the range of hills to the South.

For those who prefer getting into a vehicle, a half-hour drive east takes you to Perpignan and lovely Mediterranean beaches, and to the west lie the majestic Pyrenees including the impressive Mount Canigou. With Cathar country to the north and Spain just an hour's drive south, the region abounds with things to see & do.
