About The Tower Apartment, Mas de Castelnou

Whether you are looking for a romantic out-of-season getaway or a spacious apartment to share with friends or children, then the Tower Apartment might be just the thing.
The Apartment consists of two bedrooms, one above the other, in the tower of what was once an ancient bergerie.
The top floor - Canigou - has a king size bed, freestanding bathtub and WC. Three sides of this bedroom are lined with windows offering unique views of the Roussillon countryside. From here you can see the majesty of Mount Canigou, the Mediterranean in the distance, and miles of uninterrupted natural garrigue. If booked by just a couple then this would be super-romantic and private.
The lower floor - Peyrepetuse - offers a double bed and kitchenette with bathroom. Both bedrooms share a very private terrace from where you can soak up the sun and enjoy the spectacular views. (Please note that neither bedroom would be accessible to Persons of Reduced Mobility and that the stairs between the two bedrooms are outside, accessed via the terrace).
The large 16m x 8m pool for the Mas is shared with another apartment and the Main House.
