The Collioure area
Collioure is a picturesque former fishing village in French Catalonia. Famous for its anchovies, which make up the basis of many Catalan dishes, it has been awarded the 'site remarquable du goût' (site of culinary excellence) because of the way that the fish are still filleted by hand.
The largely pedestrianised streets are a maze of twists and turns as they step up from the seafront, stroll amongst these to discover the restaurants, art galleries and shops selling pottery and wines of the area, sit and have an aperitif at one of the many seaside bars around the bay.
It has been a mecca for artists for well over a century, made famous by artists such as Matisse, Derain and Picasso.
Collioure has three main beaches with safe swimming areas, snorkelling and sailing. with several pretty coves nearby for those seeking a little more solitude. On Wednesday and Sunday mornings a bustling market is held; while throughout the months of July and August there are festivities and music. From the 14th-18th in mid-August the 'Fete de St Vincent ' is held, culminating in a spectacular firework display in the bay.
The terrace must be one of the very best places to see this amazing display, with uninterrupted views of both the Chateau Royal and the Church which are included in this firework extravaganza . Over Christmas and New Year a big marquee is put up on the beach where you can dance the night away for free, with yet another spectacular display of fireworks at midnight.

We loved our stay in Prud'Homie, and can't praise it highly enough. It's as lovely as it looks in the photos -- in my opinion, even lovelier. We came in May, during school holidays -- two moms and our daughters and niece. The teen-agers stayed upstairs (they loved having their own part of the apartment). Each room of the flat is beautiful, and the details -- from a sink in each room to the very pretty sheets and the well-equipped kitchen -- made this a real home, cozy and aesthetically pleasing at once. The roof terrace was fabulous -- we've travelled to Collioure before, and noticed that this time we hardly went to cafes -- the view from the roof terrace seemed the best in town. We had most of our meals there, and the teen-agers liked to spend time there playing games or just chatting, too. We also appreciated the flowers and wine, and the thoughtfulness of the owner. The flat is right in the heart of the old town, very near the beach -- hard to imagine a better location. The weather was perfect, too, and we took long walks along the cliffs and up to the old monastery in the hills behind the town. A lovely town, and a beautiful place to stay -- we can't wait to go back!

We spent our honeymoon in Collioure and loved Collioure and Prud Homie! The apartment was amazing, clean, fully equipped with everything you could possibly need. The rooms were lovely and the view from the roof terrace is amazing. We enjoyed breakfast on the roof terrace over looking the sea!! This place was great for us in terms of location as well. There are restaurants so close and we enjoyed wandering out on a warm evening looking for somewhere different to eat!!
