“A stunning and beautifully restored farmhouse in which to relax.”

My husband and I arrived at Mas Rouby and thought we had discovered paradise! The farmhouse is stunning and has been beautifully restored maintaining many of the original features.It has been very stylishly decorated achieving a relaxed French feel. We loved the original shuttered windows and generously proportioned rooms. The garden and pool area are fabulous with plenty of tasteful loungers to soak up the sun. We loved the fact that the outside space is as comfortable and beautifully appointed as the inside space. The house is totally equipped with all one may need. The views are wonderful and the feeling is of total relaxation.

“Excellent holiday house, perfect for the family and our children”
Reviewed 26 January 2015 for a stay in August 2014

Spent two lovely weeks at this house with my husband and our two children, aged 3 & 5. The boys spent a lot of time in the pool and playing in the garden. Once the boys were in bed, we loved chilling out on the sunset patio seating, drinking G&Ts and chatting before adjourning to the poolside eating area for dinner. With a few candles to light the table it made a splendid place to eat. The house itself had everything we needed and the shutters made the rooms dark for the boys. We walked into Joch to play at the park there and one day I took the eldest for a great walk down tracks in the peach orchards for a bug hunt! At Vinca (5 min drive or 15 min cycle) we could buy fresh bread everyday, so that was handy. Can't wait to go back soon, I miss the views, especially from the kitchen window seat!

“Undiscovered hidden gem. Mas Rouby & this part of France were a delight!”
Reviewed 21 January 2015 for a stay in August 2013

We flew to Perpignan & hired a car (very reasonable) as we wanted to explore the locality. It was a quick & easy journey to Joch, though we took our time as we had to keep stopping to marvel at the nectarine orchards which in August are positively bursting with ripe fruit! Mas Rouby itself is set in a stunning location with a mountainous backdrop and has absolutely everything you could need. Beautifully decorated with every convenience, the owners have equipped & furnished this lovely old farm to a very high standard. This region has a very particular personality, and whilst it has all the benefits of France it has the extra dimension of feeling like its own independent country which must come from its Catalan/ Cathar roots. If you've ever read Labyrinth by Kate Mosse, you'll have a feel for this ancient area. We spent a lot of time just chilling around the pool enjoying the local booze and freshly picked apricots, grapes and tomatoes etc. But there's lots to do and we had a lovely day at the seaside on the beach and exploring Collioure/Argeles as well as visiting medieval castles and towns inland. The children loved it and especially enjoyed visiting 'Papou' the dear little donkey who lives next door. Can't wait to return!

“Relaxing stay in a stylish farmhouse”
Reviewed 15 January 2015 for a stay in May 2014

Six of us stayed in this beautifully appointed farmhouse - lovely kitchen and characterful en suite bedrooms - in May 2014. From every window the house has magnificent views and gives a real feel of French living, with nearby villages offering good shopping and restaurant facilities. We flew to Gerona and picked up a hire car, which we found the best and cheapest way to access the property and enjoy this wonderful area of France. The options the property gives for outdoor living are a particular bonus, and much of our stay was spent relaxing in the lovely gardens, by the pool or eating and drinking on the patios. We would thoroughly recommend a stay at this beautiful farmhouse.

Mas Rouby is a truly remarkable property, in respect of its stunning presentation and its location. It has been sensitively restored and provisioned to ensure that guests have all that they could possibly wish for in this glorious area. This is the first time that we have rated a holiday property with five stars and we have no hesitation in doing so.
