The Haus

The original building was built in the 14th century. At that time it served as a sheep-fold and was altered later to a dwelling-house.
In the 16th century a new wing was added.
In 1994 further restoration and reconstruction works so that the living space grew to about 300 m².

Our land covers, in total, about 18.000 square metres.  
It is today essentially surrounded by vineyards, olive trees having undergone a grave damage further to a very cold winter in 1956 (there was at that time no more than 6 % of olive trees in the Pyrénées Orientales), far away from any other habitation -a completely peacefull "refuge from the world outside"-. The closest village is in 2 km.
Situated in the foothills of the Pyrénées, in the French region of Roussillon, it is not completely isolated. It is 15mn from the quiet sizeable town of Thuir, with all commerce - and 30 mn from the city of Perpignan, with its history, shopping centres, cinemas and airport.

The 'local' airports of Gerona, well served by low cost airlines and Carcassone, plus Toulouse and Barcelona International airports, are 60-120 minutes away.

The Mas des Oivettes can propose numerous activities -both activity- oriented and culturally uplifting.
But perhaps its main attribute is to offer a peacefull holiday venue, in beautiful unspoiled surroundings, away from the tourists - and with a refined restaurant attached.

Bed and breakfast rooms are typically "Catalan", refined cuisine in a restaurant with an open kitchen  (the restaurant is open every day - for breakfast for live-in guests and for all at midday and in the evening) (you can consult a sample restaurant card-click here)

Cottages fully equipped with every comfort, including washing machine, dishwasher, ice maker, which can be very significant in summer , ....,

Activities and the many local places of interest - plus the montains and the sea, are all within easy reach by car, motorcycle or even bicycle - innumerable thing to experience during a short, but preferably a longer stay with us .

Possibility of vegetarian meals, particular diets ... on inquiry
