We returned to stay with Sue & Steve after visiting in 2011, which was just after they had completed the renovation of Mas Mimosa. We wanted to go back to visit them because they are such good hosts and because the property was so comfortable and provided everything we needed for a relaxing holiday.
Our welcome was drinks in the summer kitchen and a couple of hours catching up with them. Since our first visit they have made further improvements including completing the second property and the gardens and pool areas were looking even better, it was lovely.
We stayed in the Barn which is spacious, comfortable and well equipped. Kitchen provided evrything we needed, in particular a large fridge/freezer for keeping plenty of cools drinks available. Bedrooms were large and comfortable. Good bathrooms and showers. Plenty of space for relaxing. Only downside was the TV ariel reception lost the BBC Channels for part of our stay but Steve will sort this out.
Overall we spent a great couple of weeks at Mas Mimosa alternating between relaxing days by the superb pool, walks into Perpignan or days out exploring the coast, the Pyrenees or other historic towns. There is lots to do nearby.
The best thing about staying here is Sue & Steve who are the perfect hosts. Sociable if you want them to be, good to chat to and nothing is too much trouble for them. They want to make sure you enjoy your stay and do everything they can to make sure you do.
What a wonderful place to spend our family holiday, amazing salt water pool my Daughter learnt to swim without her arm bands here and really enjoyed swimming at night, it was amazing looking up at the stars! Our girls played happily in the pool all day and loved all the toys especially dolly's and pram which are there for the kids to play with, and various swings / seesaw in the garden too. Villa felt very safe and secure so we could let the kids have a bit of freedom playing while we relaxed by the pool. The barn is amazing and furnished to a very high standard very luxurious, spotlessly clean and very spacious we felt totally spoilt. We enjoyed breakfast lunch and dinner on our terrace and enjoyed some lovely bbq's too. A lovely walk into Perpignan for loads of restaurants and bars if you want to eat out. We had our car so drove to beautiful beaches one was Canet plage for good for restaurants/ amazing massive fresh candy floss/ carousel and market stalls at night also Saint cyprien was lovely at night we had mussels and frites for dinner and had fairground rides bouncy castles for kids too. We wished we could have stayed for another week. Thank you to Sue and Steve it is a truly beautiful place to stay and we would love to come back soon.
The Old Barn…...now where to begin….when we were staying at Sue and Steve's fantastic Le Cerisier last year, Steve the owner kindly showed us the Old Barn before the next guests were due to arrive.
After only a few days at Le Cerisier last year, we already knew then that we wanted to go back to Sue and Steve's place this year, and as soon as we saw the Old Barn we knew we would like to book it for this year.
Again, this year we were met with a very warm welcome on a very warm day by Steve and Sue the owners, who really are now like old friends.
Like Le Cerisier, the Old Barn is immaculately presented throughout with fantastic attention to detail, which is tirelessly maintained by Sue and Steve. It really is a remarkable place that Sue and Steve have created, quite incredible given that they undertook the majority of the work themselves.
The accommodation is second to none. And I can gladly repeat what I said in my review last year, that is quite simply this is the best accommodation that we have rented anywhere in Europe.
Many lazy late morning and lunch times were spent around the beautiful swimming pool (the photo's don't do it justice), before heading out to the Mediterranean (10 mins in the car) or to Perpignan and its many attractions (20 mins on foot).
It really is a fantastic place to explore the region from and to look forward to coming back to early in the evening for a swim or a leisurely glass of wine on the terrace.
Another most memorable stay and we’ll be back.
We were 2 families (4 adults and 4 children) who stayed at The Barn for 1 week. Wonderful poolarea, nice and clean house that was very well equiped. Close to everything you need, though we didn´t leave the house much because the pool was just what we needed:) Very nice hosts, Sue and Steve. This is a place that I can truly recommend! We`ll be back next summer!
We where here last year and and told ourselves to go back this year because we love this place, and so we did. This stay was even better than last year, it´s like seeing old friends and a second home again.
Our small kids just loved running around free in the safe area and play in the garden and in the perfect pool area. It´s still a lot more to explore in the surroundings too, more cheese to eat and more wine to drink so we will go next year too!
As soon as the gates opened and we drove in to Mas Mimosa we felt at home. Our second trip and certainly not the last was a great stay for the whole family. Our little son loved running around the premises, being in the playground and swimming in the pool. We loved that the pool had gates, the playground was safe and that the premis was fenced.
For me a foodie the kitchen and the fabulous barbecue area was the natural place to be.
There were a lot of lovely dinners that we sometimes spent with the our great hosts, nowdays our friends Sue and Steven
We will definitely visit this little paradise again.
