La ville d'Argeles est bien. C'est la seule chose bien du séjour. L' hôte est Franck BUISSON et est DÉSAGRÉABLE, EGRI, RACISTE, MALHONNÊTE ! Le gérant : - Il ne sait pas parler anglais du tout. - Il est radin. (tout est payant) . - aucun déjeuner n'est proposé. - il n'est jamais venu nous demander si le séjour se passait bien. - inégalités de traitement avec les autres hôtes. - la machine à laver a été retirée dans notre salle de bain . - le WiFi, ne fonctionne pas . - Il a nous a exiger une caution en espèces. ( 100€ ) il a refusé la carte - La literie est payante ( 20e ) - Prix pour un chien ( 30e ) A notre départ, on lui demande de venir vérifier l'état de la résidence. ( Pour refaire le ménage, si ça ne lui convient pas). il refuse ! 4h après notre départ, il nous harcèle pour 50€. ( 50€, correspondent selon lui, aux coûts du nettoyage avec une femme de ménage ). Il met un commentaire, sur booking.com puis le retire après! Le lieu : - Le propriétaire est en déclin. - Les espaces verts ne sont pas entretenus. ( il ne peut pas entretenir les 4 hectares seul !). Odeur de canalisations insupportable, dans la cuisine et dans la salle de bains. L'appartement que nous avons eu est sale. - Remplis de toile d'araignée. - Remplis de punaise de lit. - Remplis d'insectes divers : punaise de juin, punaise de lit etc.... - Aucun chauffage dans la chambre à coucher. - éclairage non fonctionnel dans le couloir. On s'est fier au commentaire, même s'il date de 2020! On a vraiment été déçu. Et on n'est pas les seuls. ( compliqué pour une clientèle internationale d'un certain âge de mettre un commentaire sur booking.com ). JE NE RECOMMANDE PAS! Un formule 1 est beaucoup plus accueillant!

Accommodation was spacious and the kitchen had everything you would need. Comfortable seating area, spacious shower room, private patio area and lots good walking from the house for all abilities. Worth a visit, the Ermitage de saint Magdalene and the retirement home for farm animals la ferme de Bonheur, both within walking distance of the gite.

A lovely country location away from it all. A quaint little church just a short walk away up the road. Quiet location and great for families with the garden and playground amenities in site. Nearest towns not so attractive and if you are a beach lover be prepared for busy and mainly pebbled beaches in high season.

Superbe propriété au cœur d'un très joli parc, le tout dans un paysage magnifique, entre mer et montagne. Le dernier kilomètre de route, très mauvais, est garant de la tranquillité du lieu. Tout a été parfait durant les cinq nuits de notre séjour : la surface, la propreté et l'équipement de l'appartement ; la qualité et la variété des petits-déjeuners ; l'accueil et la volonté manifestée de répondre à nos attentes.

We had a great holiday and used the gite as a basis for travelling around the area and into Spain. The area and Argeles however, is very touristy, obviously during the summer season. The Gite itself has a good pool and interesting grounds - we eventually saw 2 boar as we leaving - not much else fauna-wise, but tennis tables etc all good. Our rooms were a little tired to be honest, for the price, which is high we expected a little more in the way of kitchen wares for example. Franck is a good chap but has limited English so we were dependent on tourist info and maps rather than local tips etc. The gite is very hard to find, be warned and up quite a long road away from Argeles - but if you want to be away from the crowds this will suit you fine. Good for kids, families and couples. Med is about 30 mins including seasonal traffic and finding somewhere to park... Would recommend, especially if spruced up a little.

You definitely need a car to reach Mas Lamon, which is quite a long drive up a narrow bumpy road from Argeles. However, having driven through the rather tacky town and past the brash hotels and campsites there, you'll be pleased to be rather set back from it tucked away in the peaceful enclosure that is Mas Lamon. We found the communication with Louise before our stay to be excellent - she replied to emails extremely quickly and helpfully, and called us before we arrived. When we did arrive, we were greeted by Frank, who was also very friendly but spoke limited English which could perhaps be a problem if your French is rusty! He gave us a quick tour of the apartment then left us to it. He had also generously left us a bottle of wine in the fridge to enjoy on our first night. We stayed in "Canigou" which was the ground-floor apartment on the corner, looking out over the pool in one direction from the kitchen and both bedrooms and in the other the wooded grounds from the living room. The apartment was more than big enough for us, with a main bedroom with a large "super king" bed (albeit rather firm), wardrobe and large ensuite, a 2nd smaller bedroom with 2 single beds and wardrobe, a kitchen/diner with ample storage and useful leaflets and a few kids' toys left, and a living room with a sofa and sofabed, tv and a couple of small tables. Outside was a large patio area which fronted the kitchen and both bedrooms all with sliding door access, 6-seater table and chairs and 2 plastic easy chairs and a gas BBQ. The showers were nice and powerful which makes a huge difference! We stayed in mid August in the height of a heatwave and were grateful for the electric metal shutters on the windows and ceiling fans to mitigate the heat, but it still would have been very uncomfortable to sleep had we not brought 2 of our own small fans. I agree with other reviewers that if aircon could not be installed (which would make the world of difference) at least some extra fans to move air in the height of summer would be beneficial. We tried the trick of closing the shutters during the day and opening windows after dark, but with insects also to consider it was a difficult balance between wanting to stay cool but not be bitten! The grounds are lovely - with attractive wood and flowering bushes It is perfect for families with young children as everything is enclosed which makes you feel they are safe if you want to give them the freedom to go off and explore the play areas, boules, ping pong, football area and so on. The swimming pool is secured by a gate which my 7 year old was not quite tall enough to open alone, so is also not a significant risk. The pool itself is larger than the photos suggest, although not enormous. It is fairly deep which was fine for us as our children can swim, but those with little ones would need to take buoyancy aids. There are plenty of reclining sunbeds around the edge with fixed umbrellas (though be aware sometimes bats like to sleep in them overnight - could be a shock when you open them!!). There is a storage chest with a few pool toys such as a ball and pool noodles. It was so nice to be able to just walk out to the pool from the flat, and we felt safe leaving the doors open. I suspect as with most places where you are not the sole occupant, your enjoyment of a place like Mas Lamon will depend a lot on who else is staying there at the same time as you. We were extremely fortunate to find a very friendly family next door whose children ours immediately hit it off with and wanted nothing more than to spend every day playing with. It was also nice for us parents to have some new friends to share a drink with of an evening (along with the owner Frank who knew them and joined us). On the other hand a rather rowdy family group stayed a few nights we were there and rather dominated the area with loud voices in their apartment and by the pool and rowdy teenagers running and jumping around the pool which was a bit intimidating for the younger ones. However, there were only a few occasions when the pool felt busy when we overlapped with other families using it, and many times when it was empty and you could have a private swim. Frank clearly lovingly tends and looks after his property. I would say that there were a few times this was a little intrusive as he repositioned his sprinklers to water the grass every evening which affected where the children could play (and watered the patio a few times), and another time he spent a considerable time cleaning the pool during the day with strong chemicals which meant the children couldn't play and we thought perhaps this would be better done later in the day when people were less likely to use the pool. As other reviewers have said, the wifi at Mas Lamon is patchy at best and often had little or no signal. To be fair we found phone signal to be a problem all over the area! On the whole, Mas Lamon was the highlight of our road trip down through France. It was mostly quiet, relaxing and we felt we could unwind. We would love to return.

Amazing place. So quiet, clean and tranquil. Argeles village itself is beautiful. But Mas Lamon is the jewel in the crown. 3 minute drive into the village. Wonderful host in Franc. Keeps the place safe and tidy. We will be back next year

I travel widely and most of the time do not bother writing reviews unless I percieve that somewhere is really bad or not quite as good as other reviews would suggest. Mas Lamon is in a lovely tranquil position in the hills about 2 km outside of Ageles-sur-Mer. We stayed in a three bedroom apartment with a large private terrace ,fitted out with a gas barbecue, overlooking the swimming pool. The terrace had lovely views of the pool and gardens. Some of the crockery was chipped and cracked ,but apart from that there was nothing much else amiss. We booked this apartment on booking.com and were somewhat surprised that we had to pay extra for bedding and towels. We were even more surprised that when we paid 75 Euro for an end of let clean, it did not include cleaning the barbie ! The Wifi when working is pretty poor, even by third World Standards ! ( I have lived in third World countries and the Wifi on offer here was not adequate ) If you are planning to arrive driving a big car or MPV be aware that access is via a narrow single lane road running along a river. The local drivers are fearsome and judging from our experience will verbally abuse you if they perceive that you are holding them up by driving cautiously or are not to keen on reversing to a passing place because they expect you to give way to them when they are only driving a narrow bubble car. Be warned some of them are none too friendly ! We visited in April when the weather was in the mid 20's. The apartments have no air conditioning ( only ceiling fans ) so if you are Northern European a summer stay could be hot and sticky ! Mas Lamon was a lovely place to stay for a week and allowed us to explore the mountains and the coastline. The Cote Vermeille and the High Pyreenes are well worth a visit !
