Gite Carlit is an impressive space, on the top floor of a large ancient Catalan farmhouse situated at 950m altitude, called La Taillede. La Taillede is more than just a nice place to stay. We have many animals; farm and domestic, plus a large organic garden and a saw yard and workshop (all away from the accommodation). The guest accommodation has been done with love, all the interior was made from wood from our own forest, crafted here on site. This special spot is for walkers/mountain bikers or families who feel the need to escape city life, in search of peace, space and nature. The Gite was brand new just in time for the the summer of 2018. Named after the highest peak in the region, it is situated on the top floor of the mas, so has the best views on the property.

The guest accommodation has been done with love, all the interior was made from wood from our own forest, crafted here on site. This special spot is for walkers/mountain bikers or families who feel the need to escape city life, in search of peace, space and nature. The Gite was brand new just in time for the the summer of 2018. Named after the highest peak in the region, it is situated on the top floor of the mas, so has the best views on the property. Measuring 88m², It has a vast living area/kitchen dining room and 2 ensuite bedrooms. The larger bedroom can be for 3 children and an infant or a whole family (the 2 large singles can also be made into a super king double). The breakfast terrace has seating for 8, 2 reclining chairs, and a BBQ. Joining the terrace is a short path through the forest to a 'secret' garden and the top terrace which the private wood fired hot tub is. This terrace enjoys afternoon sun and views over the top of the mas to mountains across the valley. From the garden is another short path up to a completely secluded hammock spot with views all the way up to the High Vallespir mountain range. The terrace, garden with hot tub and hammock are for the exclusive use of guests renting Gite Carlit. The outdoor pool will be completed for Spring 2021; photos soon! For larger parties, Gite Carlit rents very well with Gite Canigou, with 3 bedrooms, also with it's own hot tub. There are also 2 one bedroom gites with a sauna, and a yurt (the latter for summer, June & September only). Please ask about large groups; family gatherings and retreats. More

About the neighbourhood
Anyone who enjoys the mountains; hiking & mountain biking will be spoilt. We can recommend plenty of walks for all levels. The village of Corsavy is 5 mins by car or 15 mins walk. July & August, there is an open air pool in Corsavy; free and open every day. The village also has 3 restaurants, a cafe, playground and is a beautiful village to visit. Ceret is a lovely small town with a vibrant Saturday market; 30 mins away. Various beautiful mountain villages to explore. Historical interest. The beaches are 1 hour drive away, there are 2 lakes; 1 in Spain (1 hour) and one near Ceret (30 mins). Both have boats to hire; the closest also has a wakeboard park. Many people choose to stay here; enjoy the peace an quiet; let the kids roam free!
