We ate out every night in Collioure and Port Vendres but you could easily just stay in and enjoy the apartment- everything you need is in the kitchen to cook in. PV is closer and can be reached in 10 mins walking but Collioure has that special feel with the old streets and a greater choice of restaurants. Difficult to pick a best place to eat as we had excellent meals almost everywhere we went. Whilst the food was actually fine we did not feel particularly welcome in Chez Pujol and this was the only blot on an otherwise perfect holiday. Would recommend driving to Villefranche to get the Jaune Train and make sure you get the open carriage at least one way - spectacular! Also whilst there spend a bit of time in the village itself as it is very quaint and a good choice of places for lunch . We had some crepes in La Forge D'Auguste which were lovely but the sal du Bain was worth the visit in itself -- a definite lol moment. Also had a great time paddling around the bay on the kayak which was a great bonus A perfect apartment in a very beautiful area - I have no doubt we will return again. A big thanks to Angela and Eugene for use of their lovely space and all the helpful advice and directions!! Merci !

The house is well equipped and includes a great pool, satellite TV and internet. 15 minutes walk to the Spanish border and a good road down the mountain. On the French side, the track is less well maintained but nonetheless easily negotiated. We had a wonderful time - great for children and adults alike. Highly recommend!
