Location description from owner
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.
Architecture: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.

“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.
“lovely village-ideal cottage”
a very quiet cottage,but yards away from sea,shops and restaurants.the beds were extremely comfortable and the equipment in the cottage was fine.we had a great holiday in beautiful Collioure.the garage and the locking system of the house were bonuses.
“Attractive house of character in wonderful Collioure”
We felt very much at home in 20 Rue du Soleil, which is an historic fisherman's cottage in a largely quiet, narrow road [immortalised by Matisse] a short distance from one of Collioure's nicest town beaches. Within a few minutes' walk there is a boulangerie, a minimarket, a small shop selling local wine and other specialities, the Museum of Modern Art, as well as a good selection of restaurants, so we were rather spoilt for choice. The cottage is attractive, tastefully furnished and well-equipped, with pretty fabrics, comfortable beds, great wardrobe space, good showers and we even had the luxury of full-length mirrors! There is a good selection of kitchen pots and utensils and a large fridge. In the lounge there is plenty of information to help you to make the most of your visit, along with fiction, art books [on Fauvism], CDs and DVDs. We were very pleased with the keypad system that frees you from worrying about losing the key and felt very lucky to have the garage so close, even though we did little driving, as parking is at a premium in Collioure. It was also reassuring to know that Jane, the agent ,was nearby, although we encountered no problems during our stay, so did not have to contact her. Collioure itself is a feast for the eyes, with its historic buidings in sunbaked Mediterranean colour palette, its attractive little winding streets, cafes and galleries. Although hardly unkown to tourists, it remains essentially unspoilt and seemed to us to be an almost timeless example of the best of Catalonia and the South of France. In September there are enough people to create a vibrant 'buzz' without being overfacingly busy. As we were lucky with the weather, on this first visit, we concentrated on relaxing and exploring Collioure, venturing no further than Port Vendres and Racou Plage, where we had a delicious gourmet fish lunch at a restaurant opposite the Hotel L'Oasis. We are already looking forward to our next visit!
“We can't wait to get back to this lovely place”
The house is great and was very suitable for us two familys we four children 7, 8, 9 and 13 years old. We also must say that the service provided is perfect and the contact with the owners before and after our stay has been excellent and very friendly The city itself is a gem and so is the surroundings both the sea and the mountain area. We will definitely go back!
