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.

The Languedoc-Roussillon 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.

Collioure

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

"Mystical Place in the South of France"

The apartment had everything one requires to enjoy time away from home. A lovely 2 bed, on a pedestrian way, just around the corner from the sea. Eddy and his lovely daughter Aine were perfect hosts and it was a joy to share our time with them. Thank you so much for a perfect stay!

It was a real pleasure having you stay and we enjoyed your company and generosity of spirit. I hope very much that we will meet again and that you have a great time when you hit Paris, a terrific Christmas and all the blessings of the season. Eddie & Aine

"Vacances par excellence"

Excellent location very close to harbour, beach, shops and restaurants. The apartment is quiet and has all the necessary equipment. The landlord was extremely helpful and couldn't do enough to ensure we enjoyed our stay.
Collioure is a beautiful picturesque town and we enjoyed the superb local seafood and ice creams. We made good use of local transport and the 1euro bus as well as scenic walks along the coast and surrounding area.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and look forward to returning again in the near future.

It was a real pleasure getting to know both of you and we very much enjoyed the "sardanade" and our walk to "la consolation". Please do come back again and thank you ever so much for taking the time to write a review of your stay. One of these days I'll take you up on your offer of the best fish and chips in the world!. Many thanks, Eddie & Aine

"Fabulous accommodation in fabulous town"

I have been here 3 times now and I love it more each time. The flat is located in a very quaint street just metres from the beach.
The apartment is perfectly located to take advantage of the fantastic restaurants and sights in and around Collioure.
The apartment is just perfect, clean, well laid out and very neat and tidy. Internet reception is excellent.
The owner and his daughter are charming and most obliging.
I will certainly be back again.

Great having you back again and so good to know that you enjoy our apartment and Collioure so much. Thank you for your generous review, and we hope that you can make it back again over the coming years. Have a great trip back to Australia. Thanks, Eddie & Aine

"An lovely appartment in the heart of Collioure."

A charming appartment run by a charming gentleman in a charming location. Eddie is a most accomodating host, he met us at the station, showed us around Collioure helped us decide on places to visit and places to eat. The apartment is charming in the old part of Collioure and a step away from the beach. It was spacious, well equipped and is a relaxing place to be at the end of a day in the sun. I would not hesitate in recommending it to family and friends, A lovely holiday, Thankyou and one which we would hope to repeat in the coming years.

Thank you so much for being such wonderful guests and we very much look forward to seeing you again in Collioure. It was a great pleasure meeting you and your family and we are gratified to know that all the family enjoyed Collioure ... all in their different ways. Please do come back to stay again. Best wishes, Eddie and Aine

"Highlight of our European vacation !!"

We had a wonderful time staying in this apartment for a week in July. The apartment is in a great spot and so close to amazing beaches, shops, restaurants and great walks !!
Eddie is a great host and was very helpful ! He makes the stay in Collioure a very memorable one. It was the highlight of our 7 week Europe vacation.
We would highly recommend Collioure and this apartment and hope to come back again from Australia in the next couple of years .

Thank you for staying with us and we certainly enjoyed your company and the laughs we had. Please, do come back, we miss you guys and hope that next time you will stay for a longer period ... next time I promise we won't get lost going to the Consolation and just to make sure we'll make sure Phil carries a gps with him! Stay well, have a great year and do please come back.

"Very central and convenient flat - 50 steps from the beach!"

We absolutely loved both Collioure and the flat which had everything we needed for a relaxed and comfortable stay! The location of the flat was perfect for us, we love staying close to everything. And the city of Collioure has now sailed up as a favourite. Dear Eddie: you are a wonderful host who is there if needed, and also respect privacy. Thank you!

We thank you for staying with us and hope that you will return to 10 Rue Mailly again soon. It was a pleasure having you stay with us. Next time we must try to get you a little involved in the local music scene ... had you been here a little longer we might have had you perform with some of our musician friends. We trust Benjamin and Ada have happy memories of Collioure. Many thanks. Eddie & Aine

"What's Not To Like?!""

I thoroughly enjoyed a week in this clean, comfortable, inviting apartment with my wife and teenage daughter. It provided everything we needed for a fair price and felt much like a home away from home. More importantly for me, it features one of the greatest locations in Collioure - the most beautiful part of town, literally one minute from the most attractive beach, and close to virtually everything Collioure has to offer! And most importantly, the owner is a real person (rather than a revenue-maximizing business hawk in a remote underground lair), living in town, offering you help with anything you need as a visitor, and actually meaning it. Eddie Martin is a kind and caring individual, who is genuinely interested in his guests as people and enjoys sharing his ample supply of life experiences with them during a home-cooked dinner on the beach. I am very much looking forward to returning in the future!

It was a real pleasure having you stay with us. Aine and I very much enjoyed your company ... thank you for sharing a meal with us on the beach, even though you did miss an important world cup match! I do hope you find your way back to us in Collioure; it is always nice to entertain guests who so obviously know how to enjoy their Collioure vacation ... please do come back, and again, thank you for staying in our apartment. Eddie and Aine

We enjoyed a week here in May. The apartment is on the first floor above a shop and is generally clean, tidy, well equipped and nicely presented. The location is excellent in the centre of Collioure a… More

"Warm welcome, relaxing place, perfect location."

Where do I start? Well, location, location, location they say, and 10 Rue Mailly could not be better situated. Literally in the best place for all the quaint shops, bars and restaurants. Just 30 paces… More

How do I thank you for going to so much trouble to write a review which gives nice pointers to guests visiting Collioure, and for being so warm and generous in your recommendation of our apartment. I don't have to tell you how both Aine and I hope that you do come back to Collioure ... we missed you when you left, as Aine says, "such genuine kind warm people." She enjoyed meeting you, and I think you managed to get her relaxed during her difficult exam period. By the way, her last exam is tomorrow, and when she gets the results I'll let you know. In the meantime, bless you both and your family. Eddie & Aine
