We hope this gives you an overview of the wonderful surroundings in which the Gîte of Mas Bellonte, the home of Lynn and Malcolm Preedy is set.

We are situated at a height of 600 metres in the foothills of Mount Canigou, the sacred Catalan mountain in the Pyrénées Orientales region of Languedoc Rousillion, in the sunniest corner of France, with an average of over 300 days of sunshine each year.

Less than an hour from Perpignan airport, both the Mediterranean beaches and skiing at Font Romeu, Les Angles and various other ski resorts are also less than an hour away.

Mas Bellonte offers a wide variety of holiday opportunities for all year round activities and is ideal for walking, mountain biking, cycling, skiing or just relaxing in the grounds around the house which extend to over 3 hectares (over 8 acres) with a meadow containing a variety of fruit trees, woodland and a number of terraces leading down to around 300 metres of a mountain trout river called La Rotja. 

The Mas was conceived and built, in a combination of pink marble and river granite boulders, in the late 1940's by Maurice Bellonte, a celebrated French aviator, who, with Dieudonné Costes, were the first aviators to fly East West from Paris to New York in 1930. The property was operated through his lifetime and until the end of the 20th century for the cultivation and production of Apples and Apple Juice.
