Description

The Old Pumphouse

Mas de la rivière is an old catalan farm set on the banks of the river têt and in it's own oasis of over an acre of mature gardens. It consist of 3 houses, the owners house, the old Farmhouse and the Old Pumphouse each with their private outside area with BBQ, table sun lounges etc. These outbuildings used to house the pumps to draw water from a well into a large basin for the irrigation of the surrounding fields. The basin has been removed and the building has been converted into a luxury, air conditioned, four bedroom bungalow

The house consists of :

- A large living/dining/open kitchen area with views of the magnificent Canigou mountain at the back, french doors to a private patio area at the front. The kitchen is equipped with electric oven, hob, microwave oven, fridge, dishwasher etc. In the lounge, there is a Stereo TV with reception of the standard french channels as well as a Sky Satellite receiver for the free-to-view channels, FM radio and DVD/Divx/CD/MP3 player (we have a DVD library for your use )

- Two bedrooms with double beds, both with french doors opening unto the garden

- One bedroom with twin beds

- One small bedroom with bunk beds

- Two bathrooms, one with shower and one with bath (and shower in bath

At the Mas there are three houses: the owners house built where the stables used to be, the original farmhouse and the converted pumphouse. They share the large grounds including the large swimming pool (13 x 7 m) with a spring board for diving into the 3m deep end. There is a shower room and laundry room for communal use in the grounds. There is a childrens play area, a badmington/volleyball net and a pingpong table to entertain children as well as teenagers and the not so young. It is a very safe place for children as it is set well away from the road and there are plenty of safe gardens for them to play in
Each of the properties however has its own patio with outdoor eating area, BBQ, lounge chairs etc

All outdoor maintenance, daily pool cleaning, etc. Is taken care of by the owners. A Wifi signal for a broadband connection is available in both houses and by the pool for sending/receiving emails, checking flights etc

An excellent location for exploring the coast and the Pyrenees mountains or simply relaxing in a delightful setting

It is on the edge of the village of villelongue de la salanque which is a quaint old french village totally untouched by the tourism that surrounds it. The pretty village of canet-en-roussillon is only a couple of miles away. The location of the mas is ideal as despite being in the heart of the country surrounded by farms and vineyards it is close to the sandy beaches of the cote vermeille with the resorts of canet and st. Marie just a few minutes away. It is also close to the cosmopolitan city of perpignan (only a few minutes drive) and to all the major link roads to take you up to the mountains or down to Spain

There is a shopping center with a hypermarket just about 5 minutes away
