The access to shops and restaurants was great and we loved sitting on the spacious balcony for breakfast and in the evening. The apartment is cosy for 4 large people but the beds comfortable and there was everything we needed (including helpfully a beach chair and mats and the two fans very useful as it was super hot!). We loved being in the residence with super large pool table tennis and court for volley ball for our teenage boys.....Thank you

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!
