Some small minuses:
No aircon....was v hot when we were in Collioure
Quite a long walk into town and WiFi was v slow
Overall well worth renting!
Very good, everyone did enjoy their stay.
We had fantastic weather, and the house was perfect.
Fantastic property, spectacular views in a beautiful part of France
We've rented many villas in France over the years but this was the best. The property is spacious, well equipped and comfortable. Even with 8 people it didn't feel crowded. A steep walk up the hill from the town is a small price to pay for the stunning view from the front of the house. The pool area has plenty of shade if it gets too hot and gets cleaned regularly. Air conditioning would have been a bonus but there were plenty of electric fans available.
We have just had an amazing holiday in Collioure staying in Villa Derby.
The house is well located and very well equipped for two families. Beds very comfortable and lovely linen. Relaxing spaces outside (3 terraces!) and another under cover, which means you can dine in different areas, retreat from the scorching sun or simply get some peace by escaping the kids! Would be sure to stay again if returning to Collioure.
Excellent property in a fantastic place
Five adult family members stayed at Villa Darby for a week in June. We had visited the town before on day trips and because we loved it decided to look for somewhere local to stay. Collioure did not disappoint and neither did Villa Darby.
Whilst we were there the weather was extremely hot for the time of year (mid to high 30s). Villa Darby has an open air swimming pool which was very well used. In addition there were plenty of different areas of shade so everyone had their own space. Equally there was plenty of room for those who wished to soak up the sun!
Whilst there we never ate inside, the outside table was large and could be shaded by the large umbrellas. The gas barbecue was easy to use, and was used a lot. By the pool there was an outdoor fridge in a bar area for those who didn't feel like walking down a few steps back to the villa. In addition there was a fully equipped table tennis table which kept players and spectators alike entertained in the cool of the evening.
In fact the phrase 'well equipped' could be applied to the whole of Villa Darby. We have stayed in holiday accommodation ranging from flats to chateau and can safely say that none were so well equipped. We lacked nothing -except perhaps a tea pot- from towels to fans, and everything in between including books, DVDs and CDs
Older members of our party found the hill from the shore to the property somewhat steep, but that had a lot to do with the heat. Anyway we found a free parking place at the bottom of the hill where we parked on couple of occasions to provide an easier climb for the oldies
Suffice to say we enjoyed our stay at Villa Darby so much we are looking to return next year!
July 2015 - Great holiday venue for all ages
We were looking for a villa and location for an extended family holiday to suit twelve year olds, twenty somethings, and those of us in our 50s and 60s. Villa Darby and Collioure really hit the spot!
We felt at home in the villa from the start: the pool was a great hit as were the fabulous views from the balcony and the really well equipped kitchen. The owner was helpful and efficient when we booked and on arrival we found the description accurate and had everything we needed. The town was lovely and people were welcoming. It was lively with character, but also had the essentials - a good bakery and butcher, a small supermarket and a great choice of restaurants and bars. The young adults enjoyed a visit to the nightclub only a short walk from the villa. Collioure is a great location for exploring the area too. We particularly enjoyed the combination of mountains and sea, the stunning views along the coast into Spain and market day in Ceret. Altogether, a super summer holiday for a variety of ages and interests.
Collioure, where the foothills of the Pyrenees 'kiss' the Mediterranean . This historic fishing village with 4 beaches is the 'jewel in the crown' of the region. It is surrounded by vineyards and watched over by the Church of the Notre Dame-des-Anges and the 13th century Chateau Royal. Narrow streets around the harbour are filled with bars, restaurants, galleries and boutiques. Collioure was an inspiration to the Fauvist artists such as Matisse and Derain. Local produce is available at the colourful market on Wednesday and Sunday mornings.
