About this location
The Languedoc-Roussillon region
Often referred to as the “Jewel of the Cote Vermeille”, Collioure is situated in the very south of France about 30 km from the Spanish border where the Pyrenees Mountains reach down to touch the Mediterranean Sea. This historic little village is one of the sunniest in all of France, boasting more than 300 days of sunshine annually. It is a vibrant town that dates back centuries and preserves much of its Catalan roots through its food, art and culture.
Collioure preserves its heritage and sense of community well. Start your day with a cup of steaming java at a neighbourhood café accompanied by a traditional fresh baguette. Spend your Wednesday or Sunday morning at the downtown market meandering amongst the stalls of fresh fruits and vegetables, exotic meats, fragrant cheeses and colourful Catalan crafts. Walk around the ancient streets of the old town, and admire the historical architecture. Visit with local artisans around every nook and cranny. End your day at a seaside bar sipping one of the many Collioure vintages, feasting on the local cuisine while listening to the enchanting melodies from local street musicians, as the sun sets dramatically over the Mediterranean at your feet.

"Lovely apartment in a fabulous location."
We really enjoyed our stay in this well maintained apartment which is in pretty much the most perfect position in Collioure that you could wish for; by the sea (50 metres from the port beach), 20 metres from the nearest restaurants and only 100 metres or so from the centre. Despite that it is quite quiet.
A perfect base for exploring this jewel of a town and the beautiful countryside around it. We swam in the sea each morning before breakfast and each evening before walking to dinner. Fabulous!
On top of that the owners are extremely responsive and very helpful; booking was a very easy and pleasant experience.
The only slight downsides are that you cannot park close by to drop off your cases (though you can to pick them up in the morning) and that the second bedroom has no windows to the outside, but neither worried us unduly and the upsides more than compensated. We look forward to being able to visit again one day and thoroughly recommend it to others.

"A Gem in the South of France"
Our family of 4 was heading through the south of France on our way to Barcelona. As we planned our route, we quite accidentally discovered Collioure!
Everything went very smoothly with Kim from the beginning. She is fast to communicate with all the necessary information and answered all of our questions. The apartment is in a fabulous location - just steps to the beautiful Mediterranean. We could hear the waves coming into the shore in the evening...just loved it! Everything at the flat was ready to go the moment we arrived in the early afternoon. The beds were clean and comfortable, the family room well prepared for a relaxing evening or rainy day with DVDs and books, and the kitchen was fully stocked with everything we needed to get started. There were also lovely personal touches which really added to our feeling of being relaxed and comfortable.
Kim provided a binder with detailed information and recommendations for the town and surrounding area. It was very helpful in planning our stay and making the most of our holiday. In town we visited: The Church of Notre Dame des Anges (right outside the front door!), Collioure's Royal Castle, and the Collioure Anchovie Factory. We also took the short walk up to the Moulin, and then made our way to the top of the hill to the Fortress of Saint Elme where we were rewarded with a breathtaking panoramic view of the town and surrounding area. We also took the short 1-hour drive to Carcassonne to visit the medieval town and castle there, and were amazed at the quality of the conservation of the various sites…another recommendation from Kim!
Overall, our stay in Collioure was amazing! We really want to thank Kim and Denis for providing us with a place that is in a great location, a beautiful and comfortable space and a real feeling of being at home while on the road! We would definitely go back again!

We are of course disappointed to understand you did not enjoy your vacation at our apartment. We strive to ensure each guest has a wonderful stay as you can see by our other excellent reviews on Trip Advisor, Air BnB and VRBO.
Our apartment is in a unique building from the 1850's that was sub-divided into apartments in the 1950's. It has been fully renovated to provide a comfortable space for a family to vacation. It was certainly never a service apartment.
July and August are definitely the busiest months in Collioure. Being in the town in a location that is central to everything can come with the trade off for noise in the peak times. The week you were there is the busiest in the year as it leads up to the St Vincent Festival. We have had many families stay in the apartment in July and August (including a family that stayed the week you cancelled) and they were happy to be in such a comfortable and convenient location. We have also had many families that come in the quieter months and enjoy both the convenience and serenity of our location.
The pictures of the apartment are completely accurate and the view from the front bedroom is of St Vincent Beach. Our kitchen is fully stocked with an extensive inventory for a vacation rental. There is an inventory of all kitchen equipment, dishes etc. that is located with the welcome binder. Had you indicated to us that there were any issues with shortages in the kitchen upon your arrival, we would have immediately ensured that they were all taken care of. We did not get any indication of shortages from the guests who stayed after you left.
We accommodated your last minute request to move and refunded your money for the balance of the stay even though our cancellation clause was clear that we were not required to do so.
It is unfortunate that you did not enjoy your stay, but we did our very best to accommodate your situation.

"APPARTEMENT IDEALEMENT SITUE"
L'appartement est très bien situé, en plein coeur de la vieille ville de Collioure. Kim & Denis se sont montrés très disponibles par mail depuis leur résidence du Canada. A notre arrivée un mot d'accueil et une petite bouteille de Banyuls nous attendaient. Nous avons passé un excellent séjour.

Appartement bien situé car proche de toutes commodités ,mais mal isolé,bruyant pas de clim ! Pas de fenetre à la SDB, insupportable bruit de la VMC quand on prend un bain. Une des chambres est san… More
Nous sommes désolés d'apprendre que vous n'avez pas été satisfait de votre séjour dans notre appartement. Nous faisons tout notre possible pour assurer à nos hôtes un agréable séjour.
Avec un bâtiment historique, très bien situé à côté de la mer et en centre-ville, il faut évidemment s'attendre à avoir un peu de bruit. La ville de Collioure fait son maximum pour garder les rues très propres et bien sûre elle doit accomplir ce service avant que les touristes n'envahissent les rues. Cela veut dire que quelques fois il y a du bruit au petit matin.
Nous n'avons pas annoncé qu'il y avait l'air conditionné dans l'appartement. Cependant, nous fournissons des ventilateurs pour aider à garder l'air frais. Et à cause des dispositions relatives aux bâtiments historiques nous ne pouvons pas avoir de fenêtre pour la salle de bains ou à l'intérieur de la chambre. En compensation, nous avons installé un excellent éclairage et des accessoires lumineux colorés.
Nous aimerions volontiers vous accueillir de nouveau à une saison différente, quand Collioure n'est pas aussi bondée ou si chaude, et peut-être apprécierez-vous votre séjour avec une perspective différente.

Amazing location in the beautiful town of Collioure. The owner was great to deal with, both with booking and troubleshooting. The apartment, on the doorstep of the Mediterranean, was well appointed and close to all facilities in the town. An amazing town to explore, and also a great base for exploring the wider area.
