We stayed for two weeks in Ecurie 4 in Mas Bazan in July 2016 and really enjoyed our stay there. The gite itself is comfortable and quiet (if basic) and has a strong environmentally-friendly vibe. There is a private area outside where you can barbecue and sit in the evenings. Very private. The bedrooms upstairs were very hot, but then it is very hot there in July. There is also a large bedroom downstairs which is a good deal cooler at night. Adding some small things like screens on the windows, hooks on the back of doors or a plastic tablecloth for the outdoor table would make a big difference to the gite, which could be really lovely with a few additional touches such as these. (this is the only reason I have given a score of 4 rather than 5 for this property). The communal areas are lovely, especially the pool area surrounded by trees and flowers and the dining area in the main courtyard. You can choose to have dinner at the gite which we did on several occasions. This is a great option for anyone with kids or with an elderly or infirm guest, when you don't want to leave the gite but still have the experience of dining out. (Or just when you're tired after a day at the beach!) The food is really good and very reasonably priced. There are lots of things to do in the locality and the nearby village of Alenya has a shop, pharmacy, places to eat and is in walking distance from the gite.
