Make a holiday rental apartment or villa in Port-Vendres, France your home away from home

Port-Vendres is the only natural port along the Mediterranean coast of Languedoc-Roussillon, perfectly marking the boundary between the Pyrenees and the Mediterranean. Year round, Port-Vendres operates as a fishing and sailing centre of the highest quality, as well as a deep water commercial port.

Things to do in Port-Vendres, France

Holiday rental accommodation in Port-Vendres is an excellent place from which to discover the rich Catalan influences that run through much of Languedoc-Roussillon. The local restaurants are quite excellent, especially if you try the fish of the day, caught fresh off the coast of Port-Vendres and cooked in traditional Catalan styles. You shall never want for wine from Port-Vendres accommodation either. The vineyards in the area, including Collioure and Banjuls, produce some excellent wines, readily available throughout the whole area. The Saturday morning market is awash with colour and flavour, and a great place to stock up with local produce, strong spices and fresh fruit and vegetables.

Port-Vendres is home to a string of sheltered little beaches. The most popular beach in Port-Vendres is the sandy beach of Paulilles, which has all the tourist facilities you could need, including restaurants, windsurfing centres and peddle boat hire. For those looking for a little more solitude and peace, there are many secluded creek beaches from which to choose, including the small sandy expanses of Oli beach and Plage d’en Baux. Along the seafront are numerous water sports centres, only too willing to provide both equipment hire and lessons. Sailing, deep sea fishing and scuba diving excursions are always highly popular from Port-Vendres accommodation, but there are plenty of sports to choose from.

The rocky hills of the Massif de Alberes offer almost endless walking and mountain biking routes, all easily accessible from Port-Vendres accommodation. The rich flora and fauna of the coastline hake it the home to so many creatures, and the whole region is adorned with historic monuments of great interest, ranging from pre-historic dolmen to medieval castles, Romanic chapels to fortified villages. The rugged foothills attract climbers, canyoners and mountaineers from almost every corner of Europe. There are even a couple of fantastic 18 hole golf courses in the near vicinity of a Port-Vendres holiday rental, the best of which is found at St Cyprien, just a few miles away.

Places to visit on holiday to Port-Vendres, France

The village of Collioure is just 2km along the coast from a self catering Port-Vendres holiday rental property. The town is famous for its artistic heritage, known as the ‘village of the Impressionists’. Collioure isn’t only an artistic honey pot, the village is also known for its glorious beach and excellent range of restaurants, making it well worth exploration during a Port-Vendres holiday.

Weather in Port-Vendres, France

The climate of Port-Vendres is excellent. The summer seems almost impossibly long, with daily temperatures reaching over 30˚C almost daily from mid-May right through until September. Onshore breezes keep the air fresh and cool, even during July and August, whilst the long evenings remain perfectly warm enough to eat outside for much of the year.

Travel to Port-Vendres, France

The closest airport to holiday rental accommodation in Port-Vendres is Perpignan (PGF), just 30kms away. There are a handful of direct services from the UK, with Ryanair operating flights from Birmingham (BHX) and Stansted (STN), whilst Flybe operate flights from Southampton (SOU). Although transfers take very little time and Port-Vendres is well connected to the local area, a hire car is an excellent option, allowing you to explore the whole of Languedoc-Roussillon and even the Barcelona region of Spain.

Needs improvement.

4 of 5
Apartment had large,airy open plan kitchen lounge,but only one tiny toilet,leading off lounge. We hadn't realised that bed linen and towels had to be paid for as an extra. The towels were small and threadbare and were expected to last 2 wks. The washing machine was broken for the majority of our stay. The pillows were more like cushions and were hard and lumpy. The kitchen utensils were limited. However we enjoyed our stay and the proprietor was always available and polite. He had supplied the DVD player I had requested and the apartment was very convenient for beach and general amenities.

Excellent property in a fantastic place

5 of 5
Five adult family members stayed at Villa Darby for a week in June. We had visited the town before on day trips and because we loved it decided to look for somewhere local to stay. Collioure did not disappoint and neither did Villa Darby. Whilst we were there the weather was extremely hot for the time of year (mid to high 30s). Villa Darby has an open air swimming pool which was very well used. In addition there were plenty of different areas of shade so everyone had their own space. Equally there was plenty of room for those who wished to soak up the sun! Whilst there we never ate inside, the outside table was large and could be shaded by the large umbrellas. The gas barbecue was easy to use, and was used a lot. By the pool there was an outdoor fridge in a bar area for those who didn't feel like walking down a few steps back to the villa. In addition there was a fully equipped table tennis table which kept players and spectators alike entertained in the cool of the evening. In fact the phrase 'well equipped' could be applied to the whole of Villa Darby. We have stayed in holiday accommodation ranging from flats to chateau and can safely say that none were so well equipped. We lacked nothing -except perhaps a tea pot- from towels to fans, and everything in between including books, DVDs and CDs Older members of our party found the hill from the shore to the property somewhat steep, but that had a lot to do with the heat. Anyway we found a free parking place at the bottom of the hill where we parked on couple of occasions to provide an easier climb for the oldies Suffice to say we enjoyed our stay at Villa Darby so much we are looking to return next year!
