Home in the Mountains – The Mas at Mas Can Galan, Pyrenees Orientale   10 comments

A photo post of our life of leisure at our home from home in the foothills of the Pyrenees. We returned to same the same superb property as last year although this time in “The Mas” rather than the Ville D’Olive

Montferrer, Mas Can Galan

Pool Fun 1

Both properties are linked together and both superbly laid out and appointed. The Mas has a much bigger pool though and a hammock so it just about wins the family vote although not by much

The Mas and the Ville D’Olive

We spend the majority of our days in the simple pleasures of eating, swimming, sunbathing and relaxing, proper detox for a busy executive 🙂

Might as well JUMP!

The views across the mountains are just superb especially in the early morning and evening.

Sunset over Spain

The local village of Montferrer is a 10 minute walk away. It’s a peaceful, charming little village with a small, friendly cafe that provides the daily bread and pastry supplies, and overlooked by a ruined castle on the hill

Chateau de Montferrer

No finer feeling than sitting in the warm sun with a book (or a gadget magazine in my case) looking over the mountains. It’s a rare find this place with such a wonderful house with a stunning pool and garden and amazing views. I could live here

Eating is a serious business when in France. Freshly baked croissants and bread in the morning, salads and cold meats at lunchtime, BBQ in the evening

  1. Well, I have to say, I can’t see what you see in the place myself…..sun, pool, hammock, mountains, warmth, French bread, Nutella on tap, crepes, bilberry jam, wouldn’t be for me…….. 🙂


  2. It’s a tough job, but somebody has to do it!
    Sunshine, views, pool, French nosh, mountains…….looks like hell on earth!


  3. Ah…sigh…that sunshine! The pool reminded me of our Italy holiday last year…small hotel up in the Umbrian hills…terrace pool away from the actual hotel building with stunning views…nobody else there…now I’m depressed. 😦 We were lucky though…we didn’t have giant sharks in our pool!


  4. What a beautiful place for a vacation!
