This unique property sits in a dominating position on the foothills yet at the same time is protected by the mountains behind, in the greater Perpignan area, Languedoc Roussillon, Occitanie, South of France. Exceptional in that it is not only in a great situation being only a short drive from shops and restaurants, city, motorway and airports, it is even more the absolutely stunning and indescribable view. Never have you seen before such a sea view and at the same time a real mountain range view, both so close that you can almost touch them and far enough to take your breath away. A driveway, allowing sport cars access too, brings you to the gate from where one gets already a good feel for what is hidden behind. Approaching the house, a beautiful scenery like a painting appears.
The property has been totally rebuilt and what was in good condition partly renovated. Only ecological and non-contaminating products as well as high quality materials have been used. The original architecture of the Mas has been scrupulously respected and therefore windows, doors, iron work, cupboards etc. have been specially made for this property. Further, where ever possible, local products embellish this property, for example, the stone walls and floors are in local stone. Special attention has been given to high quality insulation throughout. A layout for a comfortable and easy lifestyle with the possibility for hosting guests while everybody has privacy and independence.
The concept of this unique property is relating ecology and an autonomy in energy with luxury, comfort and a contemporary decoration in perfect harmony. The Mas and its unique concept integrates perfectly well in the beautiful landscape.
The combination of breathtaking panorama, the silence and an exceptional Mas in perfect condition with ecological products and a refined decoration, offering a comfortable life style, within a short drive of everything, including beaches, skiing and Spain, is simply unique in the South of France!! Come and discover it yourself!

The property is nestled in 12 hectares of scrubland or 'garrigue’ with its wild flowers and medicinal plants, fields, and with a typical easy to maintain Mediterranean garden around the house. There are cypresses, olive, pine, cork oak, green oak and Mimosa, palm trees and others as well as all kinds of fruit trees, about 50 of them. The Mas sits in the middle of 6ha which, out of the 12ha, is entirely fenced; a solid fence with buried foundations. The gardens around the Mas are superbly flowered all year round and plants like lavender and jasmine scent the air. There is a proper and well thought through vegetable garden over 3 terraces about 400m2 large. A special rain water collector has been put in place from about 300m2 of roof with a tank of 55m3 for a natural watering system by gravity. The vegetable garden is totally organic going even further, applying the techniques of permaculture. For the plants around the house there is as well a watering system in place, fed by the borehole.
The water for the house is provided by a borehole which is 80m deep. A fresh water tank of 50m3 allows an abundant availability of treated water.
This property is fantastically maintained and offers beautiful features. Absolutely no work is to be foreseen.
