Aspres is an outdoor activity hot spot. The hangliding and paragliding from the Aspres Range has become very popular with those who like to take to the skies, and the stunning mountain trails which cross the region are hugely celebrated by the walking and hiking community. Horse riding holidays to Aspres have become increasingly popular in recent years, as stables invest in their facilities and take advantage of the awe-inspiring scenery which they are surround by.

The mountain streams flowing towards the Mediterranean are magnets for fishermen. Teeming with fish, Aspres cottages are often filled with those hoping to walk into the hills with a fishing rod and catch super. Permits to fish are required, but are easily obtained.

We received a very warm welcome from Amanda, accompanied by a refreshing glass of chilled wine for the adults, and home made lemonade for the children. She had prepared a starter food package for us, as we arrived late in the evening, and the house was immaculate from top to bottom. Imaginative decoration in tandem with all practical necessities ensured that we felt completely relaxed within minutes of our arrival, and even managed a midnight swim in the charming pool before bedtime ! Given that our 6 children are aged from 6 to 14, we were worried that they might become bored in such a tranquil environment, but the wide range of local activities, such as the marvellous markets and child friendly restaurants, as well as Amanda`s surprise treasure hunt for the children (!!) ensured a busy and fulfilling programme, interrupted by delicious local produce and excellent local wines. We can`t wait to go and stay again !

The pool was heated to about 29 degrees & was just wonderful to get into & relax. The temperature during the day was an average 26-28 degrees & we only had one day of rain. Simon who looked after the pool twice a week also gave us some very good advice when we asked about having an overnight trip to Spain. He suggested going to Gerona first, we visited the old town as advised & thoroughly enjoyed it. We can certainly recommend this property, the area surrounding it was superb with fantastic views. You do need a car but as we had driven there that was no problem. Castelnou is a definite must for a visit.

We are all still basking in both the glory of our stay, and a little of the after-sun warmth in our shoulders granted by the - it seems - highly reliable sunshine of the Languedoc. Our whole family had the most splendid time.. children, nephews and nieces, brothers and sisters all appeared from time to time, heeding our open house invitation and to a person settled in within minutes enjoying, as we did, the comfort of the Mas and beauty of its setting. The house is charming and offers the most welcoming feeling. Unlike many rental properties which are often slightly stark and lacking in human touches, Mas Ausseil is personally and tastefully decorated. Obviously much loved by its owners, it has a warmth about it which makes one feel instantly at home. Sue and Steve have done an amazing job on the place, transforming it from an obvious ruin in a large open field into a charming private home with lovely gardens and a really super pool which we pretty much lived in.. stargazing from the water at night with the milky way so clear was a real treat! The house is spacious enough to give every one the room they may want, without being too large. The garden is imaginatively planted and the adjoining field perfect for exercise, ruminative wandering or lively games of boules. We loved the outdoor kitchen, its barbeque and bar.. a super place to relax and chat about the day and plans for the next. Bedrooms and beds are very comfortable, all with their own aircon if it's really too hot but the house, built by wise gallic ancestors, offers natural cool with a lovely bright aspect. The immediate location and surrounding areas are beautiful. Nestled at the foot of the hills beneath the Pyreneean mountains with it's vigorous walks, fascinating towns, great eateries and historic sites it is also close enough to Ille sur Tet to scurry in for supplies every now and then.. Although we got out and about a lot, sightseeing, eating and exploring there is so much on offer that we didn't have time to fit in so we're itching to return to do some more.. and when we come back, we'll definitely stay at Mas Ausseil if they'll have us. Thank you Sue and Steve, as I said.. 'the most relaxing holiday in years.
