About the home
A five minute walk takes you to one of the five Collioure beaches, passing the boulangerie and grocer's on the way. Whilst enjoying your lunch on the balcony you can look over to Collioure's famous 'church in the water' and the blue mediterranean or the other direction towards the foothills of the Pyrenees.
In a quiet cul de sac with private parking, the studio is ideal for a couple, although extra sleeping accommodation is available.

The Languedoc-Roussillon / Pyrenees-Orientales region
Rousillon used to be famous for producing vast amounts of poor quality red wine. The amounts are going down but the quality is zooming up faster than the prices!. This is before you get to the miles of beaches or climb up into the beautiful Pyrenees. We have been swimming here as early as May and as late as the end of October. Summers are hot but usually moderated by the offshore breeze during the day and the mountain breeze in the evening.
Visit Ceret during the cherry festival or the historic towns of Perpignan or even Barcelona for a long day out.
The Collioure area
Collioure was visited by the artists Derain and Matisse in 1905 and you can see the striking results in every major art gallery from the Tate Modern to the Pompidou Centre to Los Angeles and New York. Artists and otheres have visted it ever since. (We fell in love with it 15 years ago!)
There is the church which used to be a lighthouse and still has her feet in the water, the narrow streets of fishermen's houses, the Catalan boats which bring in the fish every morning and sell them on the quay.
Our daughter used this as a ski base last year, driving about an hour into the mountains with which she was quite happy.
How to get there

Ryanair flies to Perpignan airport most days, as does Easyjet and BMI. Then a choice of train (recommended) or 30kms by road.
There is a main line train (and sleeper) which goes from Paris, stopping at Perpignan and Collioure. We've done the sleeper and it is excellent, getting in to Collioure in time for breakfast!
It is an exciting, if long, trip by car across the massif central and over the wonderful Millau Bridge. Exit the motorway at Perpignan south and it is mainly dual carriageway all the way Into Collioure.

We were bowled over when Gavin (property manager) opened the door. A hillside with terraces covered in olive trees and vines, and a windmill ! Pine trees and a glimpse of sea.
Ideal size for a couple, pull-out bed very comfortable,well-equipped kitchen. An easy passage from fridge to glass and back to balcony. Even I managed the hoovering, Bathroom with all necessities.
So right to say no car needed. We walked to Port Vendres, took the bus to Banyuls and rose early and made the connections for Le Train Jaune. Otherwise the beaches, shops, cafes, old streets,market, art provided all we needed for a relaxing holiday, oh! we did have one wet afternoon.
Only criticism, the owner should not suggest or imply that the walk from the station is easy. If we had tried it in the middle of the day, with luggage we would have got lost and arrived in a very different mood for our holiday. A taxi costs 10 euros and is worth it

We absolutely loved Collioure. The apartment was excellent for a base in a lovely town, where we could sit on the balcony (not overlooked) with great view, and while away the time relaxing with a... more
