This property is situated on the first and second floor of a small house in a quiet area of Collioure. Shops, boulangeries and one of Collioures 3 beaches are within a couple of minutes walk. The apartment has been completely renovated during the winter of 2013/2014 and contains all new equipment and furniture. The first floor contains the 2 bedrooms and the family bathroom. The open plan kitchen/dining/living area is on the second floor and enjoys plenty of light. The house is south facing. There is a railway line nearby but most of the trains using this line are electrical passenger trains and therefore they are quiet. There are some goods trains on this line but they are few and very rarely travel at night so, in my experience of staying there, have never created a problem. The windows in the bedrooms are double glazed.

The Languedoc-Roussillon region

The Languedoc.-Rousillion area enjoys some of the best weather in France and for this reason it is a major wine producing department in France. Banyuls and Rousillion being the best known. It is known as the sunny south east.

Collioure itself has a long history constantly changing hands between the French and Spanish due to its strategic position on this coastline. Many landmarks around Collioure such as the ancient forts are signs of times gone by.

It has been one of the biggest Anchovy ports in France and is still famous for its incredible choice of "Anchois" but art and artists have more or less replaced anchovies as Collioures main industry.

It is impossible to visit Collioure without being aware of Ceret. A half hours drive inland, Ceret is artistically almost as famous as Collioure and a visit there is almost compulsory for anyone interested in XX century art. Ceret is where Picasso, Braque and Gris started the Cubist movement and the Museum of Modern Art hold many exhibitions which are well worth seeing.

Collioure

The little Catalan port of Collioure is known locally as the "Jewel of the Cote Vermeille". It has been a magical place for many visitor and artist.

There are many points of interest in the town. The most magical spot in town is sitting looking at the symbol of Collioure, the clock town of the church which is call the "Notre Dame des Anges". It is the only church in Europe that has its foundations under water and so far the church angels seem to be winning the war over the constant battle of rising damp. It stands firm against the waves of winter storms It features on every tourist's holiday photos and is a constant subject for the many artists in the town.

There are many walks around the town. You can take walks to the many landmarks in and overlooking Collioure, (Eglise Notre-Dame-des-Angels, Chapelle Saint-Vincent, Chateau Royal, Fort Rond, Fort Carre, Font Miradou, Fort Sain-Elme, Fort Dugommier, and its bay. The ancient forts, windmill, castle and museum all offer interest visits and can be reached easily on foot from the town.

Collioure has been known in the past as a favourite destination for painters who came and worked at their art. Matisse, Picasso, Dufry, Derain, Charles Rennis Mackintosh were amongst these and there are many reproductions of their works to be seen as tributes to these master around Collioure. To this day artists are in the town and many "ateliers" can be found within the narrow cobbled streets.

There is a twice weekly market in Collioure, Wednesday and Sunday morning un the old plane trees in the Place Generale-Leclerc, offering local artisan produce, fruit, vegetables and wines.

The area has a strong Catalan identity and tapas and sangria are on offer around the town. Many restaurants are available which cater for all tastes and pockets.

There are festivals and celebrations throughout the year, the biggest celebrations are the Fete de St Vincent in mid August and the New Year's Eve party. People travel to Collioure from all over to see the fantastic beachfront fireworks and join in the themed party.

Collioure can be used as a bas for a skiing holiday as Andorra is less than 3 hours drive away. There are many local resorts closer that offer a winter skiing break in both France and nearby Spain.

Collioure is a magical destination to enjoy various types of holiday. It can be a relaxing beach resort or there are lots of sports and activities for busy people. You can stay put and enjoy all that Collioure has to offer, take a day trip to Spain or use it as a base to explore the beautiful region.

The tourist office is full of information they speak English and have timetables of sea, land and rail transport, lists of all the current activities, useful maps, walking guides and vital information on all local attractions. They are
