Description

The Old Farmhouse The old farmhouse has been tastefully modernised to combine its' original character with modern practicalities. It still has the original catalan tiled floors and has a large kitchen equipped with gas hob, electric oven, dishwasher, american fridge/freezer, microwave etc. With a spacious dining area opening onto the terrace. There is a large living room with a Stereo TV with reception of the standard french channels as well as a Sky Satellite receiver for the free-to-view channels and DVD/CD/MP3 player (we have a DVD library for your use) and an open fire for winter visitors to enjoy. On the first floor there are three large double bedrooms and a shower room and a separate toilet. There is an additional wc and wash basin downstairs and an additional shower room in the grounds by the swimming pool. The terrace is filled with mature trees and shrubs and has a shaded outdoor eating area, a brick BBQ, sun loungers, coffee table and chairs, a bench and can be closed off to keep children or dogs in this area. 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. 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 with swings and trampoline, a Pétanque area (french boules) 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 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. On the owners laptop or your own if you brought one. An excellent location for exploring the coast and the pyrenees mountains or simply relaxing in a delightful setting
