About Eve

I am a young farmer manager (27y old). I bought the farm house in 2006 to manage the land.

Eve purchased this mas in 2006

Why Eve chose Vallespir

I bought this place because it is where my father grow up. It is an very old place completely renew.

Everybody who visit our region feel a warm well being that remind them Corsica.

What makes this mas unique

It is a calm and peaceful place with its little river near by.

We furnished the place with some old style furnished to create an yesteryear style but with today comfort.

Cadre apaisant !

  • 3 of 5

Bon accueil de la propriétaire, cadre magnifique et paisible.

La visite de la ferme en 4×4 restera un moment magique de ce séjour pour petits et grands.

Néanmoins le point négatif reste la literie qui n'est pas à hauteur du coût de la prestation .

Très bien !!!

  • 5 of 5

A notre arrivée, nous avons été accueillis par Cécile Quintana avec des fruits et confitures "maison ". La visite de la maison a tenu toutes ses promesses et nous sommes tombés sous le charme.

Les enfants ont apprécié la piscine, la rivière, et les animaux ...

Merci à Cécile et à toute sa famille de nous avoir accordé du temps pour la visite de la montagne et de leurs animaux.

C'est vraiment un bel endroit, où nous reviendrons !

Un hâvre de paix dans une nature préservée

  • 5 of 5

Nous recherchions un endroit pour nous reposer et nous balader.

Nous sommes arrivés dans un site magnifique. Tout était là pour enchanter notre séjour, celui de notre toutou et de notre chat.

Des hôtes très accueillants et très sympathiques, discrets et disponibles pour vous faire partager les richesses de la région.

Un mas ancien, rénové avec beaucoup de goût, très fonctionnel, de belles grandes pièces, une terrasse de rêve pour des soirées intimes ou entre amis. Une piscine pour profiter pleinement de la fin de l'été dans un climat méditerranéen.

De nombreuses pistes ou chemins de randonnées, l'Espagne à 10 minutes.

Un point de départ pour de nombreuses visites sur la côte (Perpignan, Collioure,...) mais aussi les Pyrénées catalanes.

Un excellent restaurant à 1 km, proposant des spécialités du cru.

Une location que nous n'hésiterions pas à recommander à nos proches.

Merci Cécile, Raphaël, Timéo et Enzo pour ces quelques jours de bonheur.

Marcelle et Claude

Que dire ... La mas est parfait, au calme, et tout y est pour passer un excellent séjour. Nos enfants ont adoré !! La région bien sûr est très belle ! Le PLUS : l'accueil exceptionnel des propriétaires, leur très grande gentillesse et leur disponibilité. Un petit clin d’œil au "Patriarche" ... quelle énergie, quelle passion. Merci pour ce moment de partage exceptionnel.

Un deuxième séjour inoubliable

  • 5 of 5

C'est avec un réel plaisir que nous sommes revenus une seconde année profiter de ce mas et de son environnement pour une période de quinze jours (une semaine nous avait paru trop court en 2015). La beauté du site, les activités a disposition pour petits et grands nous ont de nouveau séduits et ressourcés. Les propriétaires sont toujours attentionnés et prêts à nous faire partager des expériences culinaires et sensationnelles;). Nous reviendrons!
