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.

Year property purchased 2012
Why this location? Mas D’en Porte and our adjoining property, RoussillonFarmhouse (sleeps 10) , 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 - Cottage Des Alberes (sleeps 6) and Cottage Canigou (sleeps 6).

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.

Inclusive wi-fi & phone calls to EU landlines, Skydigi TV etc. Not forgetting the large garden and 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.
