10 Rue Mailly
About the home
25 meters from the beach, charming, spacious 2 bedroom apartment, located right in the heart of the village on Rue Mailly, a pedestrian street and just steps from the beach, restaurants, the historic church and art studios is the ideal place for a family holiday. The apartment has been newly renovated while still retaining its charming character.
Collioure, a beautiful medieval seaside village situated at the foot of the Pyrénées, boasts 5 beaches within the village and has a lively market twice-weekly, on Wednesdays and Sunday mornings. It's a mere 20km to Spain's Costa Brava and Cadaquès and has 320 days sunshine a year.
Locally, you can visit art-galleries and there are many options for nightly entertainment. There are plenty of sports activities including sailing (sailing school), deep-sea diving (diving school), tennis and hiking. There are music and theatre festivals, and the whole region is rich in architectural heritage. Enjoy a walk into the mountains or along the cliffs by the sea, or simply stroll through the steep flower-filled back streets of the historic Moure district where the apartment is located, and visit the Eglise Notre-Dame-des-Anges and the many wineries in the village. You don't need a car to visit the surrounding areas as the whole of Pyrenees Orientales is served by excellent bus and train services. The bus stop is 300 meters and the train station 500 meters from the apartment.

The Languedoc-Roussillon / Pyrenees-Orientales region
The most sunny part of France, and not as commercial and overrun by tourists and cars as the Riviera.
Lots of cultural and historical attractions within driving distance and excellent public transport available throughout the region. A car isn't necessary as Collioure is well served by buses (1 Euro per trip), and trains.
Perpignan is the regional capital with many cultural festivals and events. In nearby Ceret you find the Musee d'Art Moderne. Castelnou village, Tautavel (the prehistoric man), Carcassonne, the Dalimuseum in Figueres and the fantastic city Barcelona in Spain can easily be reached by car or train. A trip in the Pyrenees might include the Canigou mountain (1 Euro bus ride) and a visit to Andorra.
The Collioure / Moure area
The Collioure / Moure area
Collioure, an idyllic place on the rocky coastline, is situated in the very south of France, 26 km from the Spanish border. The picturesque village is nestled in an authentic environment. Its small Catalan harbor is sheltered by a quiet bay where the chain or the Pyrenees meet the Mediterranean Sea. It gets more hours of sun than any region in France. The exceptionally sunny climate and the north wind “Tramontane” makes Collioure a unique place where well-being and Catalan "art de vivre" have their origins. You can count on having a splendid swim at one of the small coves and several sand and pebble beaches.
The colourful pedestrian streets are a maze of twists and turns as they step up from the seafront. Stroll amongst these and discover the restaurants, galleries and shops selling local items. Sit and have an aperitif at one of the bars around the bay. Enjoy the safe beaches on this beautiful Mediterranean coastline. Shop at the twice weekly market and enjoy fresh oysters and wine. Admire the local historical architecture including the impressive Chateau Royal, and medieval Eglise Notre-Dame-des-Anges that sits in the bay. Take lessons at the local diving school or go sea fishing. Sail around the Mediterranean on day excursions. Tour the Cathar castles and visit fortified Carcassonne, a UNESCO World Heritage site . Appreciate the vibrant Catalan culture, festivals, dance, art and food.
Collioure has always been a source of inspiration for artists. Writers, poets, singers and painters fell under Collioure’s charm. Picasso, Matisse, Derain, Dufy Chagall, Marquet, and many others set up their easels here and immortalized the small Catalan harbor in their works. Follow the marked route known as Chemin du Fauvisme, or take a guided tour, through the streets of Collioure passing the views painted by Matisse and Derain. With approximately thirty art galleries and many artists from all over the entire world, Collioure still is the ”City of Painters.”
"In France there is no sky as blue as the one in Collioure...I just have to close the shutters of my room and I have all the colours of the Mediterranean before me." --- HENRI MATISSE

Very good quiet well appointed apartment 50 paces from all requirements. The owner is very helpfull and insistant upon you having the best of times. Best shopping in the market twice a week-food especialy good. For painters the town is priceless. I made many paintings and sketches from viewpoints within 1000mtrs of the apartment. when it was wet I painted from the windows of the chataux Royal all day for $2 without let or hinderance. There is no downside I can report.

From the moment we arrived and met Eddie, we knew we would be happy in his spacious "olde world" apartment which is extremely well equipped with every conceivable cooking appliance - delph, glassware, pots and pans utensils of every description. To crown it all there was a very thoughtful, overflowing welcome basket, even milk in the fridge and cereal for our breakfast.
The kitchen / living area was fresh and airy with couches and cushions galore and a television that worked! The bedrooms were well furnished and comfortable - plenty of hangers in the wardrobes.
The accommodation is in a busy thoroughfare a short distance from the supermarket and very close to the harbour and RC church. It was very quiet at night - we were the only residents in the building.
Eddie and Áine were able to advise on transport, sights to be seen, walks and things to do - even to being able to recommend a hairdresser! They were most kind and generous of their time. Eddie arranged a day trip to a monastery - St Martin du Canigou - in the Pyrenees, which was the highlight of our holiday.
The only disappointment was the cancellation of the shuttle bus from the airport to Perpignan city. We hope the tourist authorities reinstate it. This delayed our arrival at Collioure where Eddie and Áine were waiting for us. However, the warmth of their welcome soon made up for this!
We will return to Collioure!
