Collioure apt with pools/beach
Apartment | 1 bedrooms | sleeps 3
Collioure, known as the "Jewel of the Vermeille" coast is a medieval harbor town whose magical light has attracted artists such as Matisse and Picasso. Today it continues as a thriving artist's community and quaint coastal town with five beaches. Collioure's ancient , winding streets are closed to vehicles allowing for leisurely walks past its sorbet coloured stucco dwellings and tiny shops.
The outdoor market is held each Wednesday and Sunday from 9am to noon and offers a variety of regional foods, crafts, clothing and flowers. Music, festivals and performances (including the Catalan "Sardanne" dance) abound in season from May through September and Easter week.
The slower pace of southwest France is evidenced in our many beachfront and side street cafes where residents and tourists enjoy lesisurely espressos and cafe au laits .

One of the treasures of our home is the ability to experience the livliness of the town yet enjoy the quiet of the residence for relaxing, dining and sleeping. The centre of town is quite noisy in season and, a mere few steps away, you will find the peace of a quiet residence.
The apartment also includes private, gated parking which is an asset in Collioure since parking is difficult to secure and quite costly.
Non smokers only, please.
No pets allowed.
Cleaning is 50 euros.
Please inquire about off-peak discounts for lets of 2 weeks or more by same renters.
The Languedoc-Roussillon region
The Languedoc-Roussillon is the "road-less-travelled" compared to Provence and the Cote d'Azur.
It offers a multitude of natural beaches surrounded by the majestic Pyrenees.
The wine region here has reached new heights and quality within the past ten years drawing the attention of many wine and travel writers. Languedoc-Roussillon contains the famous Cathar region with castles and ruins from the 13th century.
Some interesting day trips include:
Peyrepertuse and Queribus Cathar castles.
Empuries, Spain for Greek and Roman ruins.
Cadaques, Spain for Dali's home (reservations necessary)
Figueres, Spain for the Dali museo.
Ceret , the cherry capital, for famous Saturday market (9 to noon) and lunch on the square with roving musicians. Or stop in at the adorable "La Praline" tea salon for an inexpensive lunch of homemade tarts, soups and salads topped off by their delicious Belgian chocolates.
Walk the "Chemin-du-Fauvism" to see reprints of 23 paintings by Matisse and Derain here in Collioure.
Walk up the 150 stairs past the Musee de Collioure through the shaded olive and almond orchard to the famous Moulin (windmill) overlooking the town with view for 40K on a clear day.
Festivals include the April St. Jordi Book fair, June "Fete de Musique" week, July 14 Bastille day fireworks and festivities, August "Fete de San Vicens."
Walk, drive or take the train or bus to Port Vendres, (1.6K) a working fishing port with the mandatory "Les Criees" fish market and on to Banyuls-sur-Mer for breath-taking coastal view between vhe vineyards and sea. Stop in at Msr. Parce's "Mas Blanc " winery for his delicious reds or onto the larger "Celliers de Templiers" for a more formal tasting experience. After 3PM travel through the vineyard road to the little known "Musee Maillol" the home of the famous sculpter, Aristide Maillol. After your visit sit by his bubbling brook and cool your toes in the rushing waters.

"A very convenient location for enjoying the lovely resort of Collioure"
This is a very convenient and spacious gated apartment in a medium sized development of similar blocks. I liked the way the car could be safely left in the complex and was impressed with the private parking barrier facility. The apartment was well appointed, although I think that, in the summer months, the absence of air conditioning and a freezer/microwave is a bit of a drawback. The accommodation is very comfortable and has a private balcony at the rear of the building which we used a lot. Although it was at the height of the season and a lot of families and young children, it was peaceful and we found no disturbances. There is a swimming pool on the site which looked inviting and was not overcrowded although we tended to go straight to the beach which is vey close. Collioure is a brilliant place, full of character, restaurants, art galleries and (when we were there) lots of good quality live music to suit all tastes. I would definitely recommend a visit!
Thank you for your suggestions. We have installed a new refrigerator with freezer and a microwave/grill.
The apartment also has a new sleeper/couch. We are pleased you enjoyed the extra amenities we offer in order to make the apartment feel like a home. We hope you become one of our many return guests. - Kathleen and Phil

"a very relaxing and fun time"
We had a very relaxing and fun time in Collioure! The apartment was great (the right size for us, in a nice and quiet location, fully equipped kitchen/ living room/ bathroom, and with books/ travel guides and even DVDs -- it felt more like home rather than a hotel), the town is beautiful (it reminded me of home -- I'm from Greece) and the nature around Collioure very diverse. We will come back!
The weather wasn't on our side -- it was unseasonably cool and rainy -- but that didn't spoil it at all for us!
BTW we followed your restaurant recommendations! They were very good!
