|We are halfway between the Mediterranean and the alpine
resorts of the Cerdagne, just within the borders of the ‘Park Regional
Naturel’ in the Eastern Pyrenees.
Mas Forge lies on the western side of this valley, conveniently placed between the towns of Vernet-les-Bains and Corneilla-de-Conflent. Both towns are within easy walking distance and have a wide variety of activities for all the family.
Vernet-les-Bains, for example, enjoys a public swimming pool, sports centre, health spa and riding school, while Corneilla-de-Conflent has large caves, with arguably some of the best stalactites and stalagmites in Europe and a 12th Century Romanesque church.
In addition, there are over 200km of marked footpaths and cycle paths, many of which rise above 2000 metres in altitude. Of course, if you simply want to relax, there is no better place than Mas Forge. You are more than welcome to share the family swimming pool, enjoy the gardens or explore the property, which is situated in five hectares of private woodland.
|Corneilla-de-Conflent||1˝ kms||Boulangerie, post office, alimentation.|
|Vernet-les-Bains||4 kms||Banks, post office, shops, supermarket, restaurants, doctor.|
|For many years Mas Forge hosted the British Field-Study
Council and is consequently well stocked with identification books,
walking maps and ordnance survey maps.
We know the region very well and can point you in the right direction for the best walks, places to bathe 'sauvage' in the rivers and hot springs, picnic spots etc. We have details of bus / train times, places to visit and emergency services.
For touring purposes a Michelin No.86 is invaluable.
