*Update* After 14 years we sadly have to leave this beautiful area in 2016. We have put our lovely home on the market for sale (including our converted barn seen on this site and the neighbouring house see here for details). For this reason we are not accepting any bookings in advance beyond 28th February as we do not if the future buyers will wish to let out any part of the property. Thank you to everyone who has stayed with us since 2008.
Welcome to Gîtes Mas d’en Roca, a beautiful converted stone barn at the foot of Mount Canigou in the heart of the Conflent area of the Pyrénées Orientales,
The barn is composed of two separate dwellings which can be rented separately or together, making it an ideal base for your holiday in the stunning heart of French Catalonia.

- Original oak beams and pointed stone walls
- Open year-round
- Weekend breaks available
- Check-in and check-out days and times flexible outside high season
- Apartment sleeps 4, Main Gîte sleeps 7.

Our location (click for Google Map) is ideal for taking advantage of all this region has to offer. We are in Los Masos, a quiet village, 3km from the market town of Prades and a gentle 15 min walk to the village bar/cafe where you can buy bread and other groceries. If you’re feeling more energetic there are a variety of mountain walks you can take from the front door of your gite.
Hop in the car and there is freshwater swimming in a lake (with small beach/refreshments available) only 10 mins away, or a leisurely 45 min drive takes you to the mediterranean beaches. 45-60 mins in the other direction will take you to the lakesides and ski slopes at Font Romeu, Matemale and Les Angles. The surrounding area of the Conflent Valley lies in the foothills of the eastern Pyrenees and has much to offer in itself – walking, fishing, mountain sports, children’s activities, picturesque villages, churches and castles, or just relaxing and enjoying the local food and hospitality.
A cot, changing mat, baby bath chair, high chair, potty, steam steriliser etc are available on request if you are bringing a baby or small children.
French and English spoken fluently.
