Studio | No Bedrooms | sleeps 3
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 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.
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.
