About this listing
Beautiful villa with ecological pool surrounded by the Pyrennes
Mas Escarabill is a quiet and peaceful place situated in the hills near the village of Céret. An original Catalan Mas the early 1800's property is a paradise in the Pyrenees. You will find 2 luxury villas consisting of 2- 3 beautiful bedrooms, 2-3 bathrooms, spacious kitchens and living rooms. Each private villa has an amazing view of the valley below and a large terrace along with secluded spaces to relax and escape. The biological (chemical free) swimming pool is the perfect place to spend the summer days relaxing in the sun. Please note the pool is shared between the 2 villas.
The house is perfectly situated nearby the typical catalan village of Ceret where you will be able to discover the musics, arts, and legends of the catalan culture. You will also find a modern art museum which features works by Picasso, who once frequented this town. You will also be able to come accross one of the biggest market of the year. In Amelie Les Bains, a city which is 10 kilometres away from Ceret, you will come by a hot thermal spa.
The Ceret area offers you all kind of activities as for example, mountain biking, bungee jumping, hiking in the Pyrennes, cannyonning, paraglider, hanglider or horse riding.
Within 30 minutes, you can reach the Mediterranean beaches of nearby beautiful Collioure, Argeles sur Mer and St.Cyprien. Spain is also very close by and in a day you can easily visit Figueres with the eccentric Dali Museum and then go relax on the beautiful spannish beaches of Roses or Tossa del Mar. Barcelona is about two hours away on the motorway and is one of the most interesting and exciting cities in Europe.
Heerlijk huis in de kathaarse heuvels. Rust, stilte en de geuren van de natuur. Veel leuke plaatsen binnen een uur rijden. Ceret het dichtstbijzijnde stadje is nog mooi onbedorven. Het biologische zwembad is heerlijk.
The villa's setting is absolutely beautiful. It made the perfect spot for us to have our first holiday with friends and babies. There was plenty of space for each couple to do their own thing and for us to come together and hang out too. When we were in France Ben was very responsive and helpful. If you're looking for somewhere close to town, this is not it (not a problem for us though as we really wanted to escape). Whilst we had a wonderful time, it did seem like the villa, surrounding gardens and the biological pool could do with a little TLC, not much, but the garden's were a bit overgrown, the pool wasn't as well maintained as it might have been. Strongly suggest taking a mosquito net if you're there in the summer!
My family and I had a wonderful holiday here! It's the perfect place to relax. The house is very nice and fully equipped, and the landscape is simply beautiful. Our only regret is that we didn't book two weeks.
we loved our stay at this beautful villa. There was a warm welcome, and Ben was a great host!
Ben is a great host. Helpful and available when we had questions.
The villa is great! And the pool is even better!
The area is wonderful, close to the beaches, great villages, mountains and streams.
Highly recommend the villa for vacation!
Thank you for lovely holiday in Mas Escarabill! Mine and my sister's family loved the place. Our children (age of 8, 11, 13 and 15) enjoyed the pool and the nature with all kind of animals (butterflies, lizards, frogs and neighbour's dog :). For us adults the view and the big variety of plats and trees were real surprise (comparing to Finland :). We enjoyed evenings on the terrace and the barbaque. The house was renovated and decorated with style and there were lot of space for 8 people to stay one week. Thank you Ben! Hopefully we see you next summer!
We really loved our stay at this remote beautiful villa in the mountains. From the moment we left, we missed the beautiful terrace with the big table where we enjoyed our breakfast and barbecue evenings and the outside bed with green roof where you could listen to the gentle sound of nature. And yes, jumping in the pool is a perfect way to start a day!
We also enjoyed the region. Céret and Collioure are really worth one ore more visits and the Mediterranean Sea and mountains there are really nice.
Ben was such a kind host. Thanks a lot!
Mas Escarabill, we hope to come back some time!
