Can Llouquette is a recently renovated Catalan Mas (farmhouse).
We cater for couples or families in beautiful self-catered accommodation set in 11 acres of forest and garden with it's own stream. Relax by the pool, stroll around the garden, down by the stream, or simply find your own nook and cranny to enjoy the peace and quiet in a hammock.
Can Llouquette is set in an idyllic location in the Eastern Pyrenees. We are in the most southerly valley in France, an area of outstanding natural beauty only thirty miles from the Mediterranean, very close to Spain and at the start of the Pyrenean mountain range.
What makes Can LLouquette extra special is that it is set in its own little valley; is extremely private with no houses or roads in view or earshot and has acres of meadows, forest and stream for you to enjoy. Yet the local bakery is only 3 mins away and market towns are only 15 mins away.
We have three properties for rental, La Bergerie (for four people), Le Pommier (for two people) and L'Atelier (for four to six people).

We searched for years for a property with land and a river with several outbuildings. After two years of circumnavigating Canigou on the French / Spanish border we found this place and fell in love. It is tucked away in its own valley, and feels safe and secluded.
You can see the stars at night and listen to owls. There is no light pollution, no noise from roads and no neighbours. Listening to the stream, birds and butterflies it was hard not to fall in love with the tranquility of the place. And the air quality is wonderful, it is a joy to breathe the night-time air!
We are in the Vallespir Valley of the Pyrénées Orientales, on the outskirts of the village of Montferrer. This is the southern-most region in France and the sunniest, averaging over 300 days per year.
At the heart of the region is Mount Canigou dominating the horizon from almost every vantage point.
The planes undulate with vineyards laid out before the impressive mountains. The higher valleys are covered with oak, ash, beech and chestnut. The views are exceptional, the roads ‘untroubled’, and the weather very agreeable.
There are no properties overlooking us, no busy roads, no light pollution, just perfect peace. The nearest market town is Prats de Mollo at 15mins.
The nearby French and Spanish Mediterranean coast has many long beaches and secluded coves: Argeles, Collioure, Roses and Cadaques.
Perpignan at 1hr is the capital and other famous cities and market towns within reach include: Ceret, Figueras, Carcassone, Montpellier, Girona, Besalu and Camprodon.
Other Activities: Cuisine, wine tasting, sight seeing, Spain, Vallespir Rally, spas, watersports.
Golf: There are some outstanding courses not far from the house. The two closest courses are Domaine de Falgos and Camprodon (over the border in Spain).
The closest of the two is the stunning 18-hole course at Domaine de Falgos.
Established in 1991, it is a Par 70 of 5044 mt, where you'll also enjoy an exceptional panorama: the snows of Canigou and blue of the Mediterranean.
The Camprodon Golf Club boasts a 9-hole course located in the beautiful natural surroundings of the Camprodon Valley.
The club has made the most of the natural course of the River Tortell which cuts across many of the holes: meaning that skill, strategy and focus are required.
