Why Simon Williams chose Montferrer
We searched for years for a property with land and a river with several outbuildings. After two years of circumnavigating Canigou on the French / Spanish border we found this place and fell in love. It is tucked away in its own valley, and feels safe and secluded.
What makes this House unique
You can see the stars at night and listen to owls. There is no light pollution, no noise from roads and no neighbours. Listening to the stream, birds and butterflies it was hard not to fall in love with the tranquility of the place. And the air quality is wonderful, it is a joy to breathe the night-time air!

We stayed in ‘La Bergerie’ for a week and honestly could have stayed much much longer. The mountain setting is absolutely beautiful and an idyllic getaway from the hustle and bustle of life. The accommodation had everything we needed,and it was a perfect location for us and our 2year old. Simon was the perfect host and couldn’t do enough for us. We will definitely return!
Absolutely brilliant holiday, enjoyed every second. Simon is an amazing, knowledgeable host, nothing seemed to much trouble and he made us feel very welcome. The property is beautifully clean with everything you could need. The pool is perfect with a shallow end and wide steps to get in and play on with kids. Seriously book this place, you will not regret it, cannot fault it. Can't wait to go back.
Unique and superb
Very well-equipped and a fantastic location
Ein wunderschönes Plätzchen mitten in der Natur
Unser 2-wöchiger Aufenthalt in der BERGERIE war wunderbar. In der sehr hellen Wohnung hatten wir alles, was man braucht. Sehr schön auch die "private Terrasse". Man war umringt von Natur, Vogelgezwitscher, unten das Rauschen des Flusses. Das mit viel Liebe und Arbeit gepflegte Grundstück ist wunderschön, es gibt eine Vielzahl an Pflanzen und Insekten. Da die erste Woche vom Wetter her eher durchwachsen war, haben wir in der heißen, zweiten Woche jeden Nachmittag den schönen Pool genutzt. Auch die Gespräche mit Simon haben wir genossen. Vielen Dank für die schöne Zeit auf Can Llouquette und alles Gute für Simon und Familie.
Herzlich Claudia und Holger aus Deutschland
The place of our most wished dreams
The place of our dreams. We enjoyed so much the company and the place
lovely place surrounded by nature
We stayed from September 23rd 'til 30th with our newborn baby and our dog. Those were our first holidays since our daughter was born and we can not imagine a better place to spend them. There are lots of activities nearby, trails, places to visit and local food products to enjoy.
Our dog met Blue, Simon's dog, a never-ending source of joy and energy to play with.
During our walks around the house, we were able to discover some of the local fauna and flora, enjoy a meal in a grass field or close to the river, read a book or just having a nap without being disturbed by any noise.
Simon, our host, made us feel definitely welcome; everything was arranged to make us feel like home.
We are in the Vallespir Valley of the Pyrénées Orientales, on the outskirts of the village of Montferrer. This is the southern-most region in France and the sunniest, averaging over 300 days per year.
At the heart of the region is Mount Canigou dominating the horizon from almost every vantage point.
The planes undulate with vineyards laid out before the impressive mountains. The higher valleys are covered with oak, ash, beech and chestnut. The views are exceptional, the roads ‘untroubled’, and the weather very agreeable.
There are no properties overlooking us, no busy roads, no light pollution, just perfect peace. The nearest market town is Prats de Mollo at 15mins.
The nearby French and Spanish Mediterranean coast has many long beaches and secluded coves: Argeles, Collioure, Roses and Cadaques.
Perpignan at 1hr is the capital and other famous cities and market towns within reach include: Ceret, Figueras, Carcassone, Montpellier, Girona, Besalu and Camprodon.
Other Activities: Cuisine, wine tasting, sight seeing, Spain, Vallespir Rally, spas, watersports.
Golf: There are some outstanding courses not far from the house. The two closest courses are Domaine de Falgos and Camprodon (over the border in Spain).
The closest of the two is the stunning 18-hole course at Domaine de Falgos.
Established in 1991, it is a Par 70 of 5044 mt, where you'll also enjoy an exceptional panorama: the snows of Canigou and blue of the Mediterranean.
The Camprodon Golf Club boasts a 9-hole course located in the beautiful natural surroundings of the Camprodon Valley.
The club has made the most of the natural course of the River Tortell which cuts across many of the holes: meaning that skill, strategy and focus are required.
