"We came for peace - and wine but got so much more. Martin and Martine were excellent hosts. The room, everything, was perfect ." Alex and AnneMarie, New Jersey, USA. Our B and B is not far from the Med, Pyrénées, Spanish border and Perpignan. Our Mas enjoys superb views of the snow-capped Canigou and the sea - plus the village of Montauriol below. Above is just one comment in our visitors book, full of glowing recommendations: the warm welcome from Martin and Martine, your hosts; the views from the garden and the house; the rooms; the pool and Jacuzzi; the breakfasts and the 'table d'hôte' - and the tranquility of our village. Three double bedrooms for adults each opens onto the garden - 3 steps to the pool. Two bedrooms are mainly reserved for children but can also accommodate adults. The double rooms each has a TV and all have aircon, tea/coffee facilities, free wifi - take a look at the website -mas-al-chibille - for more details and photos. Breakfast for our guests is served on one of the terraces - but rarely will you need to take shelter from inclement weather - out corner of paradise has little rain! A wide choice of homemade bread and preserves, croissants ...., plus the usual components of a copious 'continental-style' breakfast, complimented by tea, coffee, hot chocolate, fruit juice....Days - especially with young children - can be filled with 'pool activity', trampoline, hot tub etc. And we have 3 cats and 3 tortoises - always a hit with our younger visitors. Lunch or dinner'chez nous' can be a barbecue in our equipped barbecue/summer kitchen area. Commerce for all your needs is 15 minutes away by car. If you and the children get tired of the pool, you can visit an ever-expanding list of local leisure, or more active pursuits and the numerous local historical and other 'cultural' sites -fully described in brochures - or our personalized advice. Seaside, mountains, castles, lakes - we have it all close by. Come and sample what's on offer!!

Do not hesitate and book this B&B. We were here only 1 night, passing through, but were very happy with the location and the service. We very much enjoyed our stay. Martine and Martin are very friendly (so is the cat), the kids used the pool and jaccuzzi, and we had a lovely dinner at George's place

My wife and I stayed two nights here and had a wonderful visit. We felt welcome from the moment we arrived. Martin and Martine are gracious hosts and were both very helpful in making the most of our short time there. They researched wine tasting tours in the area, helped us make dinner reservations at a fantastic local restaurant, and had delicious breakfast in the morning complete with homemade preserves. The Mas itself was in an ideal location; it is close to wineries (what my wife and I were really interested in!) and only a short ride to the beautiful Mediterranean city of Collioure. We highly recommend this bed and breakfast to anyone wanting to get the most out of their stay in southern France.

Paella a la 'Martine'
Made with a wide range of mainly Mediterranean fish and lots of shellfish (mussels, langoutines, clams, cockles etc), paella also has other ingredients - special rice of course, plus chicken, rabbit, spices - depending on the preference of our guests. For sure, despite the work involved, the accolades received by Martine are well worth her efforts!!
