Cortal del Baille is a centuries old stone barn which has been tastefully converted to provide a very comfortable home from home for 8 people. Close to the villages of Las Illas (in France approx 1km) and La Vajol (in Spain approx 2.5km) and only 35 mins from the Mediterranean.

It nestles at the top of a hill from which you look out on to the Spanish border. The barn is surrounded by wilderness, woods and meadow and you can simply walk into the surrounding hills. There is a private pool in the meadow behind the barn with tremendous views all around. A truly wonderful place to experience nature, peace and quiet in the sun.

The original farmhouse and another barn are adjacent to Cortal del Baille and are uninha...

After a 20 minute drive up the mountain, the old farmhouse and the views were spectacular. A quiet remote location, enabling us to relax and chill with a good book and a pool to cool down in. Spain was only a short drive away, where we found a recommended tapas bar off trip advisor. Only €11.00 for a 3 course...

Management response:

We are so glad that you had a chance to really unwind and many thanks for leaving the house so clean and tidy.

Reviewed 15 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Cortal is a small collection of old buildings high up in the forests that flank the side of the Pyrenees. The 30 minute from the village drive is a bit daunting - for the first time, at least - a narrow track, unpaved in the latter parts, that winds up along the side of the hill: stunning views over the...

Management response:

Many thanks for your review Groan, we hope that you will not mind if we clarify that the village that you mention must be Maureillas - 30 minutes down the hill on the French side, and not the village of Las Illas, which hosts the Trabucayres restaurant and lies just a 10 minute walk down the hill below the Barn....
