Fodor's Expert Review Casa 9

Mas Petit, Rte. de Corbère, 17 km (10½ miles) west of Perpignan, Perpignan, Occitania, France Fodor's Choice

Among the orchards and vineyards in the countryside surrounding Perpignan sits Casa 9, a 15th-century mas (farm) with a barn that’s been converted into lavish lodgings. Architectural elements like the mangeoires (feeding stalls) and exposed barn beams attest to its original function, but fine art now adorns the plain white-plaster walls, and the clean-lined decor includes pieces signed by French designer Philippe Starck. Look for Dalí-esque features such as miniature doorways and eye-level views onto the pool. Rustic stone, red brick, and ironwork give the whole property a genuine Catalan feel.
