The cottage offers excellent accommodation and amenities combining elegance and charm. Superbly situated for strolling around beautiful Collioure in a setting which has inspired many artists. Great choice of restaurants nearby, with Catalan and seafood specialities. A very special place to stay.

I had a very comfortable and relaxing stay in the beautiful town of Collioure in this lovely cottage. Very easy to get to from Girona airport and instructions for travelling from other places very clear. All amenities are within easy walking distance of the property. I can not fault anything.
