We are usually around at the adjacent Farmhouse. Our aim is to enable guests to enjoy living at Mas Tillet as much as we do - in their own way.

The last part of the access is by a a farm track. This protects us from traffic. It is usually perfectly navigable by a normal car - but you have to go steady !
There is wifi in the Gite - its ok for emails and limited web access but is too slow for movie downloads etc.
Guest should behave Impeccably.
