Property description

Your home away from home is a luminously lit apartment on the third floor of a creatively remodeled three story stone fisherman's house in Collioure. The house is located on the most beautiful walking street in town, lined with artists galleries and wonderful lush gardens.
This loft apartment is ideal for a couple and one extra person. The kitchenette is fully equipped to accommodate your most adventurous culinary expressions with an inset countertop stove, apartment size refrigerator, microwave, flatware, coffee maker, basic condiments and interesting dish ware.
The dining table seats six and has a hand painted table coverlet [similar to oil cloth] for easy care and cleanup.
The bathroom has a newly installed shower [2016], lovely mosaic floor, and original art.

The nearest airport to Collioure is in Perppignan and the train station in Collioure is a five minute walk from our house.

Imagine the sparkling Mediterranean encircling an ancient fortressed fishing village with vineyard covered hills above and twisting roads leading down to the #1 best beach Plage Boramar and art town found in the world. The walking streets are filled with narrow stairways and bougainvillea draped pathways spilling down the hillsides towards the protected bay. You'll find restaurants with seafood galore, joie de vivre, shopping streets, galleries and the beach a mere two minutes stroll from our front door. Year round, on Sundays and Wednesdays you will find all of the best farm to table providers at the picturesque outdoor market in the nearby park.

The village is known for it's primal painted fishing boats and it's glorious beaches and was made famous by Picasso, Matisse and Fauvism.

You will find amazing hiking and bicycle trails up into the vineyards situated on the Pyrennes Mountains surrounding this colorful village. Opportunities abound for the photographer, the artist, the romantic poet; the adventurer; the bicyclist, the skier in the winter season and the connoisseur of culture, food and love in all seasons.

Within an hours drive of Collioure are several well known tourist destinations; the Dali Museum in Cadaques, Spain. The modern art museum in Ceret which is known for its innovative displays and extraordinary display of Picasso's ceramics.
The Cathare Castles in the Pyrenees Mountains make for a great short hike and picnic spot.
The wineries of Banyuls are nearby and known for their aperitif and dessert wines.

Collioure is a walking village filled with bouganvillea and exotic narrow walkways spilling down from the Pyrenees to the beaches, seafood restaurants, shopping streets and galleries galore. A perfect environment for plein-aire painting of the colorful boats and harbor, wine tasting in the town and neighboring villages.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: I am a painter and I have always made my living with my art. My husband is a jazz musician and architect. We have always created interesting environments to include our friends and creative community from around the world.

Why the Owner Chose Collioure, France:
I once owned an art school in southern France and took my students to Collioure to paint because it is the most beautiful village on the Mediterranean [in my opinion].

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
We grew up on the beach in California and we felt so safe next to the clear and calm Mediterranean Sea in Collioure. We liked that it is an aesthetically amazing environment that looks so perfect that you might think it is a stage set! Plus it is as romantic as all get out.
