                                                                                                      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!

It is everything the website says and more. Julie and Andy were so helpful, both before and during our visit. The village has excellent facilities for immediate needs and is close to fantastic villages, towns, coastline and countryside as well as bigger shopping facilities. Daily walks through the vineyards and fields and friendly neighbours in the cul-de-sac all added to the experience. We were sad to leave and will definitely return to explore the area more and enjoy the peace of the village and its surroundings. Thank you Julie and Andy for making our holiday so enjoyable.

Caroline and David were friendly, welcoming, and helpful hosts. The village was lovely and we did most of our daily food shopping using the excellent local butcher and baker stopping for a drink at the bar on our way back. Our favourite beach was at Paulilles and we mostly alternated between that and walking in the mountains with some day trips into beautiful Catalonia. Our one wet day was a good opportunity to visit the modern art gallery at Ceret. We returned home relaxed and refreshed after a memorable holiday. Thank you Caroline and David.
