About the Owner/Advertiser, Mr Paul Spink

Paul and Annette first visited Argeles Sur Mer and Collioure in 1979 and eventually bought a property in Sorede in 1986. Our son, Luke was born in 1988 and we have been visiting this very special area of the Roussillon all these years. It is truly spectacular - renowned for the sun, the sea and the mountains. We have been hosting guests from all over the world for more than 30 years and welcome you to join us too.

Why this location? RoussillonFarmhouse and Mas D’en Porte have been in our family for the more than 30 years. So popular are our properties and the region we bought the 2 adjoining cottages.

We have been visiting the Roussillon region since 1979 and of course we return year after year because it has everything – the sun, the sea and the mountains – together with a rich history, great culture, fantastic countryside, tasty food, very palatable wine and friendly Catalan hospitality. If you have not already been, then you won’t be disappointed.
Unique benefits of property The unique benefits of our properties are that they have been renovated to a very high standard and are ‘home from home’. A fantastic, spacious designer kitchen, en suite bedrooms, inclusive wi-fi & phone calls to EU landlines, Sat tv etc. Not forgetting the large swimming pool – for cooling off in summer!

Our properties are located in the most southerly and sunniest region of France with its own superb micro-climate. Great all-round year round - to escape from the UK weather.

9.8 / 10 JDWest 9 August, 2018

We had a fantastic time here exploring this lovely part of the world for a week.
The house has everything it promised, and the great pool was even warmer than expected! The villages along the coast are well worth a visit, particularly Collioure, and the sea is suitable for all ages.
A trip into Spain is a definite possibility, as is relaxing round the pool and short strolls into the village for coffee, drinks and dinner.
Will hopefully be back one day!
