Built in 1790, Mas St. Joseph was the living quarters for the adjacent monastery. Much of its original character remains but with the added comfort of a beautiful Moroccan style courtyard/patio area with swimming pool, perfect for balmy evenings.

The space

On the top floor of the Mas, with views to both Canigou and Les Aspres is the Studio Catalan which has a mezzanine level sleeping up to 3 people: 2 single beds (or 1 super king size double) plus a futon bed. With a couple sleeping on a sofa bed in the main room, the maximum sleeping capacity is 5 persons. As well as a compact shower room/WC, there is a dining table and a kitchenette with fridge, microwave, electric kettle, but no stove or oven. There is a wide screen TV with satellite channels, DVD player as well as a pull down cinema screen and ceiling mounted digital projector. The room also has a small library and two comfortable sofas. In view of the stairs to the mezzanine, the studio is not suitable for the elderly, the disabled, or children. The low sloping roof in the mezzanine should also be taken into account with regard to access to the beds.

Guest access

Guests have access to the swimming pool and adjacent patio where breakfast is served. When the weather is cooler, breakfast is served in the entrance hall. Evening meals can also be provided on request either on the patio or indoors.

Interaction with guests

Both Adrian and Kate are available to offer advice about things to do and places to visit in the area, and also enjoy swapping stories about travel into remote and far flung places. Both Adrian and Kate speak French (and a few words of Spanish!).

Other things to note

We have two small dogs who are very friendly and full of fun.

Adrian User Profile

I spent most of my adult life overseas in Africa, California and Australia, in varied occupations ranging from development worker to entrepreneur, and filmmaker to academic. However, I always dreamed of eventually finding a haven in the south of France, and feel blessed in putting down roots here in the Pyrenees Orientales. Kate and I love introducing guests to this special corner of France, and we have been so lucky in receiving wonderful guests from all parts of the world. We love to share experiences and swap stories especially after a pleasant meal on our front terrace with views stretching to Mount Canigou.
