In a natural place at the top of the cliff overlooking Rigarda, this fold of the 18th century includes 4 beautiful personalized rooms (including a master suite) and a large lounge of 75m ² divided into several areas: television area, games area (pool table / foosball) and piano bar ...

The Mas Montebello is a fine example of the fusion of traditional and modern. The farmhouse has been renovated in a contemporary style and offers fabulous views of the surrounding mountains. This is an ideal base for hiking and to discover the picturesque villages nearby.
Relax beside the pool and admire the views of the Pyrenees. Walk the small paths winding and take a brisk walk around the village.
The house is also immersed in a beautiful Mediterranean garden (almond, lavender, eucalyptus, agaves, yuccas and palms). The pool is surrounded by a terrace made ​​of wood, and shows great views of the Motzanes valley and the famous "Pic del Canigo". Depending on the weather, meals can be taken on a splendid terrace overlooking the village or in the huge kitchen with a fireplace.
Between Mediterranean sea and Pyrenean mountains, at 40 km from PERPIGNAN (Languedoc-Roussillon region),
this property, a renovated 18th-century farm, is situated above the hamlet of Rigarda, 2 km south of the village of Vinça, which has most facilities, including a lake, seasonal beach bar, tennis courts and a railway station, as well as a good variety of shops and several bar/restaurants. From here you can catch the train to Perpignan or, in the opposite direction, to the fortified town of Villefranche-de-Conflent, from where you can take the ‘ Little Yellow Train’ high up into the Pyrenees.

Lovely villa.
Swimming pool - was disappointing. The owners had not got the chlorine treatment correct and green algae persisted. They were aware of the problem and had organised an engineer to come on the day of our departure.
Had to pay for linen - which we thought rather expensive on top of £1850 for the villa. Would have had to pay for cleaning @ 200 euros - so we did it ourselves.
No damage caused by our rental - so I hope that Villarenters can refund our £2000 before Master Card statement. £2000 - rather excessive.
However, we had a lovely holiday and no complaints to worry about.
The villa is just outside Rigarda - directions would have been helpful!!!!!!!!!!!!

Reply from Sci Cesar

I have the right chlorine treatment! The pb was : these renters called me to inform me about the unclear water (as they were warned by the rental agreement they signed) so that I can go to the house to make corrections; but they told me it was not necessary as they did not use the pool! In fact, I only noticed the serious deterioration the day of their departure (they even did not wait for me leaving the house open with a two-word written message!)Next clients suffered a lot of this act of negligence because they could not swim during several days (this was the important damage they caused during their rental). Fortunately, they had a 3-week stay and the water became crystalline again and they were delighted with their holidays at MAS MONTEBELLO.Concerning directions, they seem to be correct as any renters did never lose their way to get to the house. Moreover, they can get a map in addition to the written text shown on "villarenters".Concerning linen and cleaning, I do not include them in the rental price as some visitors do not need them so the price is lower.Further to the price they found expensive, please note that the house is for 10 persons (not only 2) and includes site fees as well as its belonging to GITES DE FRANCE (5 stars, 4 "epis"), a French national guarantee of quality for this luxury house.I must add for other potential clients that I have been renting MAS MONTEBELLO since 2000 and this is the only negative point I ever had (they say "lovely villa with swimming pool was disappointed", I say "these paricular renters were disappointed"). My renting book only contains very nice message of people (many UK visitors also!) who spent enchanting times inf this stoned farm, with its quiet surroundings, panoramic views and sun all the year.

An excellent villa. Comfortable, fantastic location, overlooking the picturesque hamlet of Rigarda, a brisk walk from amenities, but a short drive from so much activity, we didnt know what to do next.

More than perfect for our stay. Breakfast and dinner on the terrace with the sun facing Canigou. Old house with a comfortable and well laid out and stepped on several levels. Super welcoming from I. who is a very very good cooker... Accommodation in the heart of the tourist area of very high quality (Mosset Castelnou, Ens, Ille sur Tet and its organs, Serrabone Priory, Abbey of St Michel de Cuxa Prades, Villefranche de Conflent Vernet les Bains, Abbey St Martin Canigou.) should also come back with snow on the Canigou ...
