Apartment | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 4
This spacious apartment has large airy rooms, air conditioned, central heated with high ceilings and leads onto a large elevated terrace (unusual in centre Collioure) with a sun lounger and chairs. De lux folding bed, cot and baby chair available. Although in the centre with the bedrooms rear facing it is a haven of peace ( see reviews) in a quiet neighbourhood.There is gated private parking facilities (20m) for the apartment. The price includes all linen, beach towels, beach mats and windbreaks. The owner has lived in the town for 15 years and is pleased to suggest or advise on any local events and can arrange bike/scooter hire and has produced a local Restaurant Guide, both for Collioure, Côte Rousillion and nearby Spain. There is a fine welcome pack (incl win) and any additional grocery requests can be arranged.
AIRPORT/STATION - I am resident (ex July & Aug ) and can collect at Perpignan, Carcasonnne and Girona Airports and Collioure and Perpignan stations. Abillo the local taxi man will do the deeds in my absence (although more expensive) and he knows the house well.
.ACTIVITIES - Many sports activities are available, either in Collioure or nearby - Walking, Diving, Windsurfing, Sailing, Fishing, Tennis, Hiking, Hiking in Canyons, Climbing and, of course, Skiing in the Pyrenees. I am in the process of assembling a walking guide to the area.
BEACHES - Collioure has four small beaches and with the proximity (5/10mins) it is a bonus to be able nip back for a shower and freshen up. With the bus stop only 75m it is possible to take advantage of the region's €1 per person per journey price to take you to Port Vendre (port, fishing port and last home to Charles Rennie MacIntosh) and then onto the quieter secluded Plage de Paullies , Banyuls S/M and in the other direction to the miles of sandy beaches of Argeles and St Cyprien.

The sacristy contains the church’s treasure, including 15th century paintings and a 16th century processional cross. In 1905, Matisse and Derain discovered Collioure. They found the colours and light dazzlingly beautiful and invented the Fauvist Art.

Picasso, Dali, Juan Gris, Hanicotte, Foujita also fell in love with Collioure.

From April to September, the streets and squares are given over to les sardanes, troupes of dancers, dressed in traditional red, white and black, performing the sardana two or three times a week. The main festival, the Festa Major de Collioure, takes place from 14 to 18 August, but space is limited and tickets must be reserved in advance by phone from the tourist office ( 0033 4 68 82 15 47).
NIGHTLIFE - At night Collioure is fantastic and comes alive as people eat out and drink in the huge number of Street Cafe's, Restaurant and Bars.

"Perfect apartment close to beaches and historic centre"
We loved the apartment which is perfectly situated, equipped with everything you could possibly need and has the additional benefit of private parking. It is 2 mins from a supermarket and 5 mins from two beaches and the lovely centre of Collioure. There is no walking up steep roads and we found it very handy to be able to pop back to the apartment from the beach within a few minutes. We would certainly recommend this apartment to anyone wanting to spend some time in Collioure and we hope to return in the future.
