House rules
This place isn’t suitable for children under 12 and the host doesn’t allow pets, parties, or smoking.
Set amidst peach orchards, with views of the foothills and distant ridges of Mount Canigou, Mas St. Joseph is a haven of peace. Built in 1790 as the living quarters for the adjacent monastery, the property retains much of its original character but has the added comfort of a Moroccan style courtyard/patio area with swimming pool, perfect for balmy evenings. There is also a BBQ available for guests use. Breakfast is served either on the patio (weather permitting) or in the entrance hall.

The space
When the Mas was a monastery, this room was where the abbot slept (well-placed to keep an eye on the monks who slept in dormitories at either end of the house!) The room has a lovely sunny feel to it with stunning views over the peach orchards to Les Aspres, the tree-covered hills to the South. The room contains a comfortable antique double bed and standard TV with satellite channels. Please note the en-suite shower/WC room is very compact and therefore not suitable for larger guests.

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.

Other things to note
We have two small dogs who are very friendly and full of fun.

Location

Ille-sur-Têt, Languedoc-Roussillon, France

Set amidst peach orchards, with views of the foothills and distant ridges of Mount Canigou, Mas St. Joseph is a haven of peace. A delightful stroll or bike ride through the orchards takes you to the picturesque town of Ille-sur-Tet. A half-hour drive east takes you to Perpignan and lovely Mediterranean beaches, and to the west lie the majestic Pyrenees. With Cathar country to the north and Spain just an hour's drive south, the region abounds with things to see & do.

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.
