About the Owner, Mrs Gill Masters

We moved here in 2002 with our two small children, we then renovated the whole domain, now Gill's days are now spent gardening or painting in her studio and Jim is renovating homes for other people.<br/>Its such a great place to live, lots of hard work goes into making sure people enjoy Bordebasse as much as we do. We hope to make your holiday one to for happy memories and of course, we hope you come back.<br/>

Year property purchased 2002
Why this location? We love the fact that we are rural, but not too far from shops and towns, we love the lake which gives us so much pleasure all year round, fishing, swimming and watching the wildlife in the winter months. The view is also second to none, some days those Pyrennees are so close you feel you could walk to them another day.... they have disappeared in the haze. Magnificent.<br/>
Unique benefits of property Most properties have a lovely house and a pool, we are delighted to have both plus the lake, the lake is, our jewel in the crown.

The Owner Recommends

Mirepoix Market. Cycling along the Canal du Midi. Spain for the day.

Perfect for that monday morning, meet the producers, take a coffee in the many cafe's, listen to the buskers, all very busy and very French.
We can organise bike hire for you or you can hire them from the canal du Midi perfect cycling under the trees. A day trip to the beach is only 1 hour away, Spain is 2 hours away, just think you can go to Barcelona for lunch and back in a day!
There are so many things to do here. Just ask us what you want and we will find it for you.
