Entry to the cottage from the street is via a keypad which allows for easy access to all visitors; the access code is changed at each turnover to ensure maximum security. The cottage has been furnished to a high standard and fitted with quality amenities that make it a real home rather than a simple holiday retreat. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

The Languedoc-Roussillon region
Collioure is nestled amongst the rocky coastal coves, close to the Spanish border where the foothills of the Pyrénées meet the sea.
The town boasts cobbled streets of amazing colour, countless art galleries, wonderful restaurants and cafés and numerous markets and shops.
And for those seeking sand and surf, there are no less than four beaches.
But Collioure is perhaps best known for its artistic heritage.
Le Château Royal XIII - XVIIIè The Château Royal was built on Roman foundations and is the centre of Collioure's medieval fortification.
Le Fort Saint Elme XVI The fort was built in 1552 by the Spanish King Charles V and is on a hill overlooking Collioure and Port-Vendres.
La Tour de Madeloc XIII Get a breathtaking view from this tower 652 m above sea level. It was once used as a watch tower for the Spanish coast. Today it is a television tower!
Eglise Notre Dame des Anges XVII The church's original foundations were built in the sea. Since then it has seen more extensions than DIY television show. The belfry was built in the Middle Ages, the nave in 1684 and it was given extensive renovations in 1672 and 1818.
Cloître du Couvent des Dominicains XIV The cloister once fell victim to illegal art trade, but was bought back by the municipality in 1992 after it had been discovered in Anglet. Now eleven of its arches are in the garden of Parc Pams.
Easter: Good Friday: Sanch Procession (procession along the stations of the cross)

"Lovely accommodation in the most charming setting"
As a group of 6 we spent and fantastic 6 days in the property. The house is comfortable and well equiped - the kitchen is super - and so well situated only minutes from the sea. It was great to just walk the 2 minutes down to the sea front and stroll round to the harbour and main part of the town. We did alot of strolling and sitting with a drink watching the world go by - Collioure is one of the most picturesque and relaxing places I know! From previous visits to Collioure we know that parking is at a premium so the secure parking offered at this property is a very valuable asset. We had some lovely trips out in the surrounding area (a wonderful fishy lunch in Port Vendre!) but were always happy to get back to the comfort and calm of Rue du Soleil. We shall return!

"One of the best equipped gites."
We loved this cottage, very good situation and in a village with very narrow streets the garage was a blessing. Everything in the cottage was to a very high and well maintained standard. The keyless entry system made life so simple when friends returned at varying times. We could not fault this accommodation and were so pleased we are already planning to return. Collioure itself is a delight, but try to explore the surrounding coastal villages and mountains or you could miss some treats. We would thoroughly recommend this gite.

"Delightful stay in charming home in idyllic location"
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.

"Very high standard of acommodation"
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. I am looking forward to a return trip,

"An ideal holiday location in every way"
Our friends, my partner and I were very impressed with this property. It was really easy and straightforward to book via this web site. This attractive property, with a well-equipped kitchen, comfortable beds, plenty of wardrobe space, outside patio garden, satellite TV, more than satisfied all our creature comforts.
The location is great; Collioure is beautiful and this property is within easy walking distance of the beach, restaurants, shops and market.
We weren't sure what the weather was going to be like in October, but we need not have worried, it was really warm and sunny every day.
Great time had by all!
I was pleased that you emailed me with your messages and let me know how nice it was to stay in October. Maybe it will me in October 2013 who has good weather too. I have to say that the weather at New Year was fantastic too.
