Why Philip chose Port-Vendres
This is our family holiday home. We have had many fantastic holidays here over many years and every time we go back we love the area more and more. There is everything you want - the sun, the sea, the mountains and the beautiful sunsets - as well as great restaurants, the excellent Languedoc wines and the famous Port Vendres fish market where you will find the best fish you have ever tasted.
What makes this House unique
The property is modern and well equipped and offers a perfect location with a beach 200 metres away. The terrace with stunning Mediterranean views offers the perfect spot for sunbathing and the ideal location for dining and a drink at sunset. You have two beautiful but different towns walking distance away - Collioure and Port Vendres - both of which offer a host of interests and amenities.

Great place in one of the finest locations
We are two Norwegian families with kids aged between 1 and 7 who enjoyed 2 wonderful weeks in this location. The pictures of the view and the beach speak for themselves; I doubt you can find anything that rivals this location in terms of beauty. The surrounding area is in my opinion one of the finest in France.
The host and his local representative were most helpful and dealt with both practical and formal matters in the best possible way. The bedrooms are big and the living room and kitchen area are more spacious than what we expected based on the pictures.
In short, we are grateful for having had the opportunity to stay at this place and warmly recommends it to anyone.
The Very Finest
Over the years we have stayed at many rentals in France, Greece, Morocco, Italy,
Spain, and England. This residence was by far the very finest we have ever had the luck to rent. The location couldn't be better. From here it is convenient to explore that entire breath taking coast; even day trips into Spain are easy. At the core of this dwelling is a well furnished private terrace directly above the sea from which to view , magnificent sunrises and sunsets. It feels remote yet it is close to Collioure, shops and restaurants, and a most scenic walk down to a quiet, uncrowded beach where the water is crystalline and usually still. The house itself is most inviting offering every amenity you can imagine. It is in a quiet location, no traffic, no light pollution so starry nights crown every day. There are several levels providing privacy for all members of your group. Every room is comfortable. The well stocked ktchen, the convenient dinning area, and the sumptuous living room all look out on the well equipped terrace beyond and below which is the sparkling sea, and each of these rooms is impeccably furnished. If you want peace and quiet in a haven of beauty, this is for you. You will feel so pampered by the tranquility, the aesthetically pleasing furnishings, and the view that you will return home rested and restored. The owner could not have been more accommodating. He is a person who is sensitive to the needs and desires of others and will go out of his way to insure that you have a memorable vacation. His generosity of spirit is remarkable; a truly evolved human being. For us, it will always remain an unforgetable week. There is no doubt that we will come back again and again. Do not waste your time looking for anything better; it just won't happen because this is, in every way, The Very Finest.
A perfect stay for a big family who likes sea view
We had a wonderful holiday in this lovely house with a marvelous view of the sea and the sunrice. It was perfect for a big family. We where 7 persons in the age 19- 60. Close to the sea, close to the store, close to Port Vendre and not far to Collioure. We had all we need. We all really enyoed the two weeks stay and could even stay longer. We all loved it and hope we can return sometime.
Fabulous, uninterrupted views of the sea and coast
We have just come back from a fabulous family holiday. The house was perfectly suited to our needs for a variety of reasons: over four floors, there was plenty of space for us as three couples; the living area was very well designed and appointed, and with the uninterrupted views over the coastline we indulged in many evenings of barbecues and amazing sunset watching on the terrace! As we didn't have a car, the Lidl at a stone's throw was brilliant for the big trolley shops, leaving Port Vendres within easy walking distance for other items. The 1 euro bus stop is very near so it is easy to travel greater distances for very little. We found there was plenty on our doorstep for one week and simply enjoyed being able to walk to either of the little coves on each side of the property to swim and snorkel, venturing to Collioure and Port Vendres to explore. We felt very much "home from home" and appreciated everything that was at our disposal whilst on holiday. We all have very happy memories of an excellent holiday - and we all said that we would love to return!
Everyone enjoys their days and their evenings on the terrace with the uninterrupted views over the sea and the stunning sunsets. The local coves make for excellent swimming and snorkelling and are safe for everyone.
We spent our holidays with 4 teenager (18, 17, 15 and 12 years), even though :-) we had a very nice time in the house.
The house is well furnished and the kitchen has an excellent fridge. We loved the short distance to the beach and snorkeling along the coast. We enjoyed the wonderful view over the sea from the terrace and our bedroom (on top).
The walking distance to Collioure (20min.) and Port Vendres (10 min.) (You should try the "croissant en beurre" in the first bakery you'll pass in Port Vendres) is easily practicable and to recommend.
We'd like to come back some day!
Excellent Family Vacation Spot
My wife and I and our 4 adult children ahd an excellent stay here . The location between Port Vendres and Collioure was perfect as we enjoyed the daily 5-10 walk into Port Vendres and the beautiful 20 minute walk to Collioure. The accomodations were more than sufficient for our group and we apprecisted the three bathrooms very much. The lower level is perfect as well for 3 or 4 young children.
The view from the terrace is exceptional and we spent a lot of time enjoying the sunny weather over a bottle of wine ( or two!)
We hope sometime soon to return!
The historic fishing village of Collioure is the jewel in the crown of the Languedoc Rousillon region. Located where the foothills of the Pyrenees meet the Mediterranean, the area boasts 300 days of sunshine a year and provides those special colours that attracted Matisse, Derain and later Dali and Picasso. The Church of the Notre-Dame-des Anges, Chateau Royal and Fort St-Elme are complimented by the narrow cobbled walkways, the lovely shops and studios, the numerous excellent restaurants and the many wonderful beaches.
A short walk along the coast or a quiet walk through the vineyards behind will take you to Port Vendres. Port Vendres remains a vibrant working port. It is frequented by cruise ships and banana boats and as well as having a lovely marina is the home of the best fish market in the area. And all the bars, shops and restaurants of Port Vendres are readily accessible.
