                                                                                                      We (2 families (4 adults and 6 kids)) had a fabulous two week stay at Mas Vell Roure in July. The villa is beautifully tucked away and secluded but within easy walking distance to the local villages. It is close enough to the Med beaches and inland attractions like Ceret and Perpignan to keep everyone entertained. The backdrop of the Pyrenees and Med is simply stunning. We spent some days gloriously relaxing by the pool, and others exploring the area (a trip to the nature conservation area on the Spanish side of the Pyrenees being a real highlight). There is plenty to do both at the villa and in the locality (we had a couple of keen cyclists in our group who made the most of the epic road and mountain bike riding). The kids loved the activities at the Plain d'eau lakes which are about 20 mins away by car/40 mins by cycle-path (the more adventurous even tried the cable water-skiing). The layout of the villa is very user friendly and works really well for socialising/entertaining in the large open plan kitchen/dining areas and the terrace but keeps the bedrooms very private. We took it in turns to cook when we weren't eating out (the local restaurants are great - the Cote Saison just up the road in Laroque serves superb French cuisine (all pre-described in perfect English)). The upstairs break out room at the villa was a real bonus for keeping our kids entertained whilst the adults could have grown up after-dinner conversations downstairs. The cooking facilities were excellent (separate food and drink fridge-freezers is a nice touch) and it was easy to get good ingredients from the local markets, supermarches and village shops. All in all a brilliant place to stay for - we'll definitely be coming back to do so more exploring/relaxing!

Exceptionally clean and decorated to a high standard. It features a very nice open-plan kitchen/dining room and living area and is equipped to a very high standard with all mod cons. Excellent outdoor areas including eating areas, both pool areas, private area for sun-bathing and plenty of shaded areas. The local area is quiet, both supermarkets and bakers within walking distance. The local park behind the villa is fantastic, it amazingly, has a free entry Animal Park/Mini Zoo! A ramp was provided at the villa for access with wheelchair. I would highly recommend this villa, it’s fantastic! This villa appeared on French television when me and my family were visiting France in Sep/Oct 2016. Congratulations to the owners Florence and her husband. 5* We hope to visit again in the future! :-)
