This beamed fisherman's cottage is over 200 years old and beautifully renovated in keeping with its authenticity!
During the Spring of 2013 the kitchen was totally replaced with new white units and appliances all topped with black granite surfaces. The two bathrooms have been tastefully refurbished and the inside of the property was repainted. (see photos)
The ground floor of the cottage has beamed ceilings and consists of a galley style white Ikea kitchen topped with masses of black granite work surfaces. The electric goods are also brand new. These are an induction hob, fan assisted oven, extractor fan, integral dishwasher and washing machine and a large preparation / serving area all covered in black granite. The kitchen has an excellent selection of cooking utensils, crockery, cutlery and glasses. A substantial fridge / freezer provide ample cold storage, even in summer. The sitting area includes a satellite TV, Blu-ray CD player and radio, and a selection of books, DVDs and CDs. The dining table seats 8 comfortably, and the open plan arrangement provides easy access to the rear patio walled garden.
The bathrooms and beautifully refurbished, one a wet room with two showers, red glass sink and vanity unit with lots of storage facilities. Upstairs the shower room has ample storage too with a vanity unit and large glass shower unit.
There are three bedrooms upstairs, 2 with double beds and 1 with twin beds. On the ground floor there is a further twin bedroom.
Collioure is nestled amongst the rocky coastal coves, close to the Spanish border where the foothills of the Pyrénées meet the sea.
The town boasts cobbled streets of amazing colour, countless art galleries, wonderful restaurants and cafés and numerous markets and shops.
And for those seeking sand and surf, there are no less than four beaches.
But Collioure is perhaps best known for its artistic heritage.
One very special point is the garage. It can accommodate 3 cars, which is handy because in the summer it is very difficult to find parking in Collioure.
