Tony and Alison Parry purchased this Cottage in 1986
Why Tony and Alison Parry chose Taillet
We used to come down on vacation with our children. One time we took a wrong turning, looking for the man selling firewood. Instead they sold us a wonderful ruin which had not been occupied since 1914, in a completely unspoiled spot. We've been carefully restoring the place ever since!
What makes this Cottage unique
Oms itself is between the sea and the mountains and Spain - you can be anywhere in under an hour. At home in the Mas you are completely away from it all, no traffic no crowds, sunny days, starry nights - so different from the busy cities of home.
Pool / Spa
The quietest place ever!
This was the most relaxing restful holiday we've had. The cottage and pool were both exactly what we wanted. Both were spotlessly clean. The cottage had everything we needed and the information file was really useful. If you want somewhere exceptionally quiet this is the place for you. It's a good 25 minute drive down the hill to Ceret and this may not be for everyone but for us it was perfect. We loved it and would recommend staying here.
Beautiful scenery, lovely property, great location
On arrival my husband and I and our two girls had been travelling for over 16 hours so a small welcome pack would of been ideal, and after this long journey having to make up 3 beds at 10 o’clock at night was the last thing I wanted to do . The cottage was well equipped and had everything needed. Few more fans would of been great as temperatures were still about 30 at night . The pool area was lovely and clean , couldn’t get the girls out . So much to see and do and lovely beaches . Apart from the few snags we all loved our stay here and would highly recommend staying here and we will return x
Well maintained, clean, had character
Beautiful position, remote, peaceful. Pool perfect. House had everything we needed.
Fun rural retreat
We had a great time here, the pool is really fab and the whole property layout is attractive and interesting. If you have some decent weather you may not want to move too far afield once you've bought some provisions. If you do however, Ceret is a quality small town with a first rate Saturday market, Argelès and St Cyprien have massive well kept beaches, and Colioure is a lovely coastal town which is, quite rightly, very popular. Pretty much anything you would want is somewhere nearby. Did I mention the regional wines?
On the edge of the picturesque Vallespir valley, Mas Llinassou faces the crests of the Pyrenees and the Spanish border. Come and explore the mountain villages or climb the Canigou peak. We are 15 minutes from Céret (street market, shops, fine dining) 30 minutes from the mediaeval city of Perpignan (air/rail links; shopping, hypermarkets) 30 minutes from beaches at Leucate and Argelès, 40 minutes from Figueras in Spain (Dalì museum) and an hour from the ancient city of Girona (major airport).
