We had a lovely 3 night stay here - our first trip to Banyuls-sur-Mer. The apartment is adequately equipped and the balcony overlooking the beach is wonderful. Jerome was informative and helpful and our only regret is that our stay wasn't for longer!
The apartment was very large and comfortable, well equipped and spotlessly clean. We stayed at Banyuls Sue Mer which is a stunning location. The apartment was in a really good location. There were only two drawbacks. Being on the seafront, free parking was only available at the top of a steep hill, (or just a few spaces below the apartment but the locals mostly had these) and this would be the one thing that stopped us from going back. Because of this, we found a parking space at the top of the hill and then tried not to use the car. Fortunately, the bus stop is right outside the apartment and the train station a short walk away, so we mostly travelled round in this way, which actually was quite fun and quite cheap.
The apartment also has a recycling centre outside (not the sort of unsightly recycling centres we're used to in England, this was just a row of quite attractive containers) but they were emptied every day and this was incredibly noisy. If the windows and shutters were closed at night, it was'nt too bad, but then it was of course quite stifling.
There's also no wi-if in the apartment so we hooked up to the owner's wi- if in the apartment above - although this was very hit and miss.
I'm really reluctant to make negative comments as the owner was very good and accommodating and the apartment was so nice. The parking was an issue but then there aren't many seafronts where you are assured of a parking place. The area is wonderful, lots of scenery, good restaurants and in a good location for visiting other towns, and for hopping over into Spain.
