About Christopher Davy
I have lived in France for the last ten years, I have owned four properties in Collioure and this is the best of all worlds. I fell in love with Collioure in 1972 and love it just as much now as I did then.
Christopher Davy purchased this House in 2013
Why Christopher Davy chose Collioure
Having lived in 2 houses in the Faubourg part of town I wanted to find a house with more space inside,some outside space and parking yet still within a few minutes walk to the middle of town and the beaches. I live in the whole of the house during the winter and have retained the lower ground floor flat for my own occupation during the summer months.I have seen a lot of the world-love Venice,Sydney,Hong Kong,New England etc but wouldn't want to live anywhere but Collioure.
What makes this House unique
The town is just the right size.Plenty to do and see.I have made wonderful friends,both french and english.Everyone who has been here has loved it,whether for a day or three months.

Comfortable house only seven minutes walking from the town
My wife and I very much enjoyed our fortnight in the the wonderful town of Collioure in French Catalonia. When we booked I was slightly concerned that it might be too far out. I was wrong - everything felt very near and we walked down two or three times a day.
The house itself is comfortable with a well-equipped good kitchen and excellent outside space where you can find shade almost throughout sunny days. It also has the huge benefit of its own parking place which in Collioure is very important. The entrance is quite narrow and my wife had to guide me.
An excellent base to explore this beautiful corner of France.
Great week in the sun!
Great house with private parking only a five/ ten minute walk into Collioure. This is a bonus as parking in the town is a nightmare! Good host in Chris. We drove to Plage du Racou every day, which is about ten minutes, one of the best beaches around, with free parking.
Thank you David and Adele, enjoy the rest of your holiday in the south of France. Hope you come back to Collioure some time in the future. Next time we will have a night out! Chris
A charming property very close to town and beaches
The house was spacious, charmingly decorated and very comfortable. It really is a very easy walk to the centre of town and beaches and we adored Collioure. We were in the middle of a very hot spell and more fans would have been helpful. The owner was very helpful and friendly. We enjoyed our two weeks very much.
Great house in good position in beautiful town. Excellent host.
Great house very convenient to town centre.
Collioure is a lovely town with lots to see and do. The town centre is really pretty, with narrow cobbled streets, colourful houses, and lots of interesting shops and art galleries. Multiple excellent restaurants offer superb food with an emphasis on fish. Our house was super, spacious and comfortable, well equipped and conveniently located, just a 10 minute walk from town centre. Chris was very helpful and always available to answer any queries.
Thank you Rena for your favourable review. I enjoyed having you and your friends in my house - you will be welcome back whenever you want to return. Also thank you for leaving the house so neat and tidy! Chris
Lovely, well appointed , close to the beach and all your could need.
We stayed a week, three of us including my pensioner mother. the town is safe to leave her to wander around without worrying. The maisonette is perfect, with a well equipped kitchen, lovely bottle of wine to welcome us and tea and coffee. It literally is only 5 mins walk top the restraints and beaches, which are clean and have lifeguards. Great off street parking though not for huge cars. There is a huge tv, great wifi and plenty of comfortable seating and an outside space. Would recommend it highly.
Many thanks Rachael for your kind words. It is always very satisfying to hear that people have enjoyed themselves in my house. You were also perfect and appreciative guests and will be welcome back whenever you decide to return.
