About Oonagh Conway
We are both enthusiastic walkers, swimmers, and stand-up paddleboarders. We have been holidaying in this area for over 15 years and find Collioure has a charm not found anywhere else in the world. Full of beautiful historic buildings and packed with fabulous restaurants, yet retaining a friendly atmosphere. It is very safe for swimming, with three main beaches all sheltered within the bay providing a natural playground for kayaking, standup paddleboarding, swimming, snorkeling and scuba diving. There are numerous well marked and maintained walks along the coast and in the hills to suit all levels of ability. Port Vendre is only a 10-minute walk from the apartment and while an active fishing port it is very picturesque. It has very good restaurants ranging from the very reasonably priced with three-course menus starting at around €16 to the very expensive restaurants including the Oyster Bar near the old lighthouse on the northern pier.

Why Oonagh Conway chose Collioure
Collioure is all about the views and this apartment has them all. All rooms have sea and mountain views and are bright and spacious. The beach is literally a stone's throw away and you can put on your swimsuit and walk straight down for a sea dip first thing in the morning. Then a 4-minute walk to Lidl for your morning pastries and back to have breakfast on the terrace. Strole down to Collioure and browse around the Wednesday and Sunday markets to collect fresh cheese, salads, and bread or ready made dinners of rotisserie chicken or paella. In the evenings you can watch the sun set over Collioure while you sip a glass or two of local rosé wine and take in the breathtaking view of this historic town as the castle, church and famous clock tower light up. There are boat trips to Argeles-sur-Mer where a whole range of water sports are catered for including kite surfing and wind surfing. This is a much more lively seaside resort and provides plenty of entertainment for teenagers and young adults. There's plenty of choice for clothes shoppers in the markets which are open every day in summer. The port area has a great range of restaurants which are all very reasonably priced.
What makes this Apartment unique
This apartment has been just recently renovated to the highest standards so everything is new, including all furniture and appliances. It is unusual in this area as it is very large and spacious for a two bed and is unique in having two bathrooms each equipped with a shower, sink, WC and heated towel rail. The two sofa beds are of the highest quality with very good mattresses. It has free Wifi and an integrated TV/DVD player with a selection of DVD's supplied. We have left our Nespresso machine for guest's use as we find it consistently makes the perfect coffee. The south/southwest aspect means the apartment is sunny and bright. It is a much quieter area to stay in than the center of Collioure where the 5 am emptying of bins and the 8 am bugle provide a harsh awakening to most hotel residents.

4 days mini break
A fabulous property in a fabulous location. Lovely extra touches eg beach mats and parasol provided. Made good use of the local beaches for snorkeling. Thanks very much
What a nice place!
We are a family of 4 and we stopped there 3 days (4 nights) and it was perfect for us. The place is on the top floor with three balconies facing north west with a wonderful (incredible) view on the mountains, part of Collioure and the ocean. It is in sunlight for a long part of the day until sunset.
There is no AC but has ceiling fans and a floor fan. We slept with all doors opened without a problem and slept well. The master bedroom bed was super comfortable.
Has two bedrooms (two double beds + bunk bed) and main living area has two sofa beds. Both bedrooms have a private bathroom, one with a washing machine.
A private covered garage is also included but we parked right in front (easier come and go to the car). You can also walk to the Lidl supermarket at the corner on the main road.
It is located in a very quiet area, two beaches walking distance (one on each side of the compound) and water is clear enough for snorkelling.
Bottom line: we REALLY enjoyed our stay.

Lovely apartment in the perfect spot for visiting Collioure and its surroundings.
Clean, spacious and very well equipped.
Scenic surroundings from a large and modern apartment.
The look, truly a vista, from the apartment is gorgeous day and night. A blue sky meeting blue water, twinkling lights, and a grand walk into the village was mine to enjoy. That and a over the top spacious and modern interior allowed for a restful stay. The administration, of the property was efficient and cordial and the premises were tidy and immaculately clean.
I travel mostly by train and found frequent connections to Avignon and Carcassonne, while making flight connections via Toulouse. I think this car free style of travel is a great alternative to the stress of renting, parking, and navigating.
This village life was nice, quiet, and friendly with both fellow travelers and local folks making this, truly, a Home away from Home!
Thank you so much for such a wonderful review, it really gives us great pleasure to hear our guests love our apartment and the area as much as we do....if you’re ever travelling this way again we would be delighted to have you stay with us again
With very best wishes

Lovely spacious apartment, well equipped and sea view from balcony.
We really enjoyed our stay, it was relaxing to have such a big living area and lovely being so close to the beach. Being out of town meant it was peaceful and the stroll back after a meal in Collioure was enjoyable too. In September the fans kept us cool enough, I wouldn't know if they'd be sufficient in the hotter months.
Thank you for your very positive review, it’s true the location of the apartment could hardly be better, especially with that sea view!
Very kind regards
Huge variety of local Collioure restaurants, the 12th Century castle, church and famous clock tower. Walk up to the old windmill and Fort St Elme. Take in the breathtaking views of the local vineyards. Visit the nearby Port Vendre. Take the local €1 bus to Perpignan. Take the glass bottom boat trip to Argeles-Sur-Mer. Relax on the beach, swim in the sea and try out standup paddleboarding.
