Residence Port D'Avall
About the home
Our apartment is located on the second floor of a small, high-quality residence with two swimming pools and a tennis court. The Residence backs onto a beautiful hillside, terraced with ancient stone walls, and topped by a historic windmill and a castle to which you can hike. The apartment also includes a gated parking space (a must in Collioure in the summer!) The location assures peace and quiet, yet you are only a 2-minute walk from the beach and the shops and restaurants of lively Old Town Collioure. We have furnished the apartment with tasteful, quality furnishings. The newly remodeled one bedroom has a top quality, roomy, and comfortable king-sized bed; the living room has a double-sized sofa bed. The balcony with table and chairs is the perfect place to enjoy your morning coffee or afternoon aperitif; and a separate fully equipped and updated kitchen is ready for your inner chef. The just remodeled bathroom features a stunning and contemporary glass shower cabin with a rainforest shower; and new, full-sized washing machine and dryer. Stacks of books are available; while European satellite, French TNT cable television, and free WiFi Internet keep you connected. The stereo/CD player with iPod dock, and multi-system DVD player help keep you entertained. A portable baby crib/cot is available free of charge upon request.

Further details outdoors:
The Residence is a lovely, small, 3-story building that is of high quality construction, and although modern, incorporates local stone into the exterior. There are two swimming pools open in season, one of them a child's pool. The full-sized, nicely equipped tennis court is a great place to improve your game with tennis racquets and balls on hand. Or if you prefer to challenge the locals there is a boules court, and a boules set available in the apartment. The Residence backs up to open countryside and, on one side, a vineyard with numerous hiking trails leading from there up into the hills surrounding Collioure. There is a gated parking area for your car, and you will receive the remote entry device with the key to the apartment.
SAVE €100 by booking a second week rental; longer holidays may receive further price reductions. The swimming pools are open in season, typically May - September.
No pets. No smoking indoors.
The Languedoc-Roussillon / Pyrenees-Orientales region
Languedoc Roussillon is the southern-most department in France, bordering the Mediterranean Sea to the east, and Spain to the south. The cities of Nimes, Montpellier, Carcassonne and Perpignan are located there. The region is the sunniest and warmest in France, with over 300 days of sun per year. Compared to its neighbors to the north, Provence and the Cote d'Azur, the region is relatively undiscovered, with less overcrowding and commercialism. The area is renowned for dramatic landscapes, including mountains, gorges, and broad, white sand beaches. The area is very popular with walkers, and is full of interesting hiking trails of various levels of difficulty. Close to Collioure is the land of an ancient sect called Cathars, which contructed impressive fortresses on mountaintops of the region for defense. The area is also renowned for wines, and Collioure has its own appellation with some excellent reds. Neighboring Banyuls is famous for its sweet wine.
The Collioure area
Collioure is a charming fishing port with pastel-coloured houses, a royal castle, and an ancient church encircling a lovely bay. It is only about 20 kilometers from the Spanish border, which can be easily reached via a dramatic coastal road affording beautiful views. It was a gathering place for Fauvist painters in the early 20th century; Matisse, Braque and Derain painted many famous canvases here. There are five small beaches in Collioure with clean, calm water, excellent for children. If you are looking for long stretches of white sand, you can head to neighboring Argeles-Plage for the day, just 3 kilometers to the north. There is a huge range of easy daytrips from Collioure, including visits to Cathar castles, Romanesque abbeys and lovely historic towns such as Perpignan and Ceret. Day trips to Spain, including to the famous Dali Museum in Figueras, are also easy. From Collioure there are boat trips along the coast and a scuba diving centre.

The apartment is very well equipped, very well priced, well located close to restaurants, shops and walks yet very quiet, secure, parking a real plus and quality fittings and appliances. Free Wifi, great library and secure parking were a real plus even though it was late season. Very pleasant spot especially the balcony for meals and savoring local wines etc - actually did too much of that!! Ideal for a couple but would suggest a little snug for too many more. Mme Auzalay very friendly, not intrusive and speaks great English. Visitors will be spoiled for things to do but high on our list were "Petit Train Jaune" (make sure you ask for the 1 Euro fare between Perpignan and Villefranche), Cave de Fefe for wines and coffees, walks over Col de Madeloc and up to Balcon de Madeloc, La Claire Fontaine for Tapas and good french fare.
Thank you for your kind words. We are happy to know that you enjoyed your stay in our apartment! We do our best to make our guests feel welcome and at home. We agree that the apartment is a perfect couple's retreat, although our guests with one or two children have found it comfortable as well. Collioure offers so much to see and do, we hope you will return soon!
