It is shared with other guests unless you book the whole place (capacity 16-20 people). The pool (and playground) is not right next to the gite so it is always peaceful at the mas.

Interaction with guestsThere is always someone here to answer questions, to give recommendations etc. We enjoy interacting with the guests but understand that many people come to the mountains for tranquility so we let the guests take the lead. During the summer, we organise activities for our guests which you are free to join in on or not, at no extra cost. Once per week in the summer, we invite all our guests to have dinner with us in our garden. We light the fire pit, the kids toast marshmallows and everyone gets together; always fun. We have a boules competition by the playground once a week; bring your own apero. Matt offers to do guided hike per week for anyone who would like to go, and one day will also take the donkeys on a trek with picnics.

Beautiful gites in stunning location with amazing facilities.
Spent two days at La Taillede with friends and were wowed. The views, and surroundings are stunning, the gites and facilities are fab and exceeded all our expectations. It is self catering, and the kitchen is well equipped, and set up allows for indoor or outdoor cooking. Hosts are very welcoming and helpful and you can take advantage of the guided walks, and opportunities for foraging in their extensive woodlands. Visited in October

Fabulous holiday!
From the warm welcome on our arrival from Matt and Ali to the beautiful, comfortable and well appointed self catering gite, staying at La Taillede was a very relaxing and pleasant experience. The mountain scenery is stunning and there are plenty of lovely walks available both in the forest and around the hills. A great base for hiking in the Pyrenees. The many various animals around added to the calm serenity of the experience. We would highly recommend La Taillede and we will definitely be visiting again.

Fantastic view at your doorstep!
Staying at Gite Cerise was a fabulous experience, you’ve got the fantastic view and the fresh mountain air right at your doorstep! There’s plenty of parking and you’re close to the action at the main house and the other gites. Overall it was super comfy, warm at night and had a modern kitchen and shower to make full use of. I had the pleasure of staying at the yurt as well and I highly recommend both if you want to experience the best of the Pyrénées mountains! It’s easy to get to and there are hiking trails all over the mountains. There are also various animals on the farm that you can visit and get up close and personal with!

Comfortable apartment, lovely situation, great hosts
La Taillede is amazing. Very peaceful with stunning views, thanks to its high position in the beautiful Pyrenees. It's a really special place for a few days holiday. Gite Cerise is comfortable and well equipped. Ali and Matt are great hosts, nothing was too much trouble. The drive from Perpignan airport only took about an hour, but you definitely leave the crowds behind. Ideal spot for solo travellers, couples, families, kids, walkers and anyone looking for away-from-it-all peace and quiet, with all kinds of adventures within easy reach!

Perfect mountain get-a-way
Ali and Matt and the whole family were wonderful hosts. They know how to make you feel welcome. The accommodation is amazing: tranquil and quiet. I would highly recommend staying here for a mountain get-a-way. Great hiking trails nearby and a taste of rural France. This is a must if you are in the area!

Warm welcome, stunning views.excellent
We spent a very happy night in Gite Cerise at La Taillede. Very comfortable bed, pretty sheets, clean, warm ( lovely log stove) and hot water. The hosts are lovely and passionate about their restoration project. They grow all their own food and have sheep, goats, chickens and dogs. Only five minutes from Corsavy and half an hour to Céret ( good modern art museum) and the sea (Colliure is lovely). There are larger three bedroom gites, a hot tub, enough walking trails to keep you happy for months.

"Absolutely Perfect"
We stayed here in January and luckily had lovely warm sunshine. The Gite and the settings were fantastic, and our son had the most fantastic time with all the animals. The Gites are beautifully decorated and have all the modern requirements you need including Wi-Fi. We have never seen such amazing sunsets and had a wonderful time watching them whilst cooking on the bar-b-que. Matt and Ali are so welcoming and make you feel like you have known them forever. Cant wait to come back to this perfect place in this Perfect part of the world.

Excellent accommodation, friendly people and stunning location.
This is a stunning location high in the foothills of the Pyrenees. Matt and Ali are wonderful hosts, we were greeted with a very friendly reception and help was always at hand if needed. Gite Cerise provides very comfortable accommodation with an interesting blend of traditional style and modern facilities such as WiFi and excellent showers. La Taillede is an interesting place, there is plenty going on including forestry, farming and horticulture. A unique experience.
