A traditional south-facing Mas Catalan in a tranquil and private setting, fully restored with respect for the original charm and character of the building, retaining original features to include exposed stone walls and beams. Offering 500 m2 habitable space, the Mas has been recently run as a lucrative letting business, yoga studio and wedding venue. The beautiful stone building comprises a main four-bedroomed farmhouse, an independent two-bedroomed gite, yoga studio and a studio apartment. Whilst each have retained autonomy, the mas can equally function as a large private home. Set on 34725 m2 of organic gardens, woodland and orchards, the mas dominates the skyline as one ascends the hills and offers panoramic views from the gardens, woodland and pasture, all organically managed. To the rear are thickly forested mountains and to the front, and particularly from the pool, are the amazing views across the Roussillon plains, the sea and to the Canigou mountain.
The Mas has been entirely renovated since 2007, in keeping with respect for local traditions and for the environment. Walls were stripped of concrete and filled with lime allowing the walls to breathe. Most windows are double glazed hard wood. The house is heated by three wood-burning stoves using wood produced from managing the woodland. An array of solar panels heat water for 9-10 months of the year and photovoltaic panels are currently being added. The gardens are planted with numerous fruit trees including fig, cherry and the almond orchard. The land is managed organically.
The Mas comprises one building or three individual sections each inter-connecting whilst retaining autonomy.
