Completely refurbished in 2013, this stylish studio offers resident’s only private pool and stunning views of the Roussillon coastline. The property is divided into a two story two bedroom villa and a separate self-contained studio apartment. The villa and studio apartment can be either rented separately or together, accommodating a total 6 guests.
Set above the picturesque town of Collioure, which is only a 10 minute walk, this gorgeous part of the south of France has it all from the old town, beaches and waterside activities to the quayside fortified church and royal castle built by the Knights Templar which provides a great contrast to the brightly coloured Catalan boats. The town also boasts an impressive selection of shops, boutiques, galleries, bars, bistros and restaurants, with golf, skiing and vineyards all within the surrounding area.
Collioure sits within the foothills of the Pyrenees; where terraced vineyards plunge down to meet the Mediterranean. It remained under Spanish rule until 1659, today this charming Catalan town not only enjoys an exceptionally sunny climate but the local culture and food reflect its Spanish roots and close proximity to the boarder, which is only 15 miles away.
The immaculate villa is located in a charming development and complemented with all new furnishings and fittings. The self-contained spacious studio comprises a sleeping area (1 double bed), living/dining area (two seated sofa, TV etc), well appointed kitchen/dinner and separate bathroom. The studio opens onto a small terraced patio and is situated directly below the two bedroom villa.
The private residence pool, situated directly behind the villa, is securely gated and equipped with communal sun-loungers (beach towels are provided with the villa/studio). The photo shown is before the renovations were carried out in spring 2013. Since this photo was taken the whole area around the pool has been decked, the pool itself has been relined and a new outdoor shower has been installed.
The villa/studio has free parking on the road outside, travel high chair and cot, available upon request.
The villa was amazing! Exactly as the pictures showed which sometimes is not the case. There is a little walk to the town but this is enhanced by the fantastic views. The town itself is gorgeous with lots of restaurants and bars as well as fantastic beaches. We had a fantastic holiday here and our 2 children thoroughly enjoyed themselves too. Thank you!
My husband and I had a lovely relaxing week in this studio accommodation. We found it to be modern and clean with all the facilties you need for an enjoyable break. It was a joy each morning to wake up to the lovely view of a stunning blue sky against the beautiful blue sea.
The resort itself is stunning and only a 10 minute walk from the studio. We walked down each morning and enjoyed a coffee at one of the many cafes on the waters edge. You would never go hungry here, but we spent most evenings eating and drinking on the studio terrace.
Would recommend the accommodation and resort and will return ourselves

I rented this apartment with my wife and child for one week in September. I have to say for a studio apartment it was really quite spacious. It has been recently refurbished and for us we found that it had everything that we wanted. The outside patio was lovely to sit on in the evenings with a glass of wine and made it feel even bigger. The communal pool had obviously been newly decorated as it was spotless. The pool was situated behind the studio, so very close and we did feel spoilt to have a pool as well as the beach to choose from each day. The owners were very helpful when booking and ensured that we had directions and the contact details for the local estate agent. We will not hesitate to book again for next year!
There was no internet connection available throughout our 12 day stay despite the owners assurance it would be available prior to booking. When I contacted the owner during our stay with this regard she was unhelpful & made no effort to amend this. Whilst the pool was a welcome amenity there was no seating available for guests other than the surrounding decking. Collioure is a beautiful town I will visit again but I would not return to this property.
This studio was perfect! My boyfriend and I stayed here for a week - It was very clean and newly renovated so it looked very smart - it had absolutely everything we needed. There honestly isn't a single thing that could be done to improve it!
The apartment is about a 10 min walk from the centre of Collioure, but this gives the advantage that it is also within short walking distance of Port-Vendres which we visited frequently for the beautiful little beaches which are a bit quieter than the beaches in Collioure. Port-Vendres also had a Lidl which was very useful.
The shared pool is brilliant, and often quite empty so it's almost like having your own private pool!
The owner of the apartment was incredibly helpful, with quick and detailed responses to my enquiries.
We loved Collioure, and would very much like to visit again - there is no doubt that we would definitely use the studio again if it was available.
I would recommend the studio to anyone, and like I said, we would definitely be interested in using the studio again.
Known as the gem of the Roussillon coast, Collioure is breathtakingly beautiful day and night. Situated on the Cote Vermeille, this is the last stretch of the Rousillion coast before the Spanish boarder, which is only 15 miles away.
There is much to see and do in Collioure from galleries and local wines to shops, boutiques and a bustling market that visits on Wednesday and Sunday mornings. The area is also well-known for its cuisine, in particular anchovies which are an embedded part of Collioure’s tradition. The town enjoys a fabulous selection of bars, bistros and restaurants, including the Michelin starred La Balette.
Collioure has a number of small coves and several sand and pebble blue flag beaches, which means that during the warm and long summer months, you can safely enjoy a cooling swim.
From April to November, the 'petit train' runs regularly every day between Collioure and Port-Vendres. The route takes in vineyards, castles and monuments as you enjoy the coastline. A particular highlight is Fort St Elme which sits above Collioure and the neighbouring Port Vendres. The Fort was built to protect the area from pirates who patrolled the waters and today offers views that are nothing short of stunning.
Back in Collioure, a further highlight is the 13th century Chateau Royal built by the Knights Templar. It provides a stunning backdrop to the harbour and combined with the natural beauty of Collioure, it has inspired many great artists, both past and present including Picasso, Matisse and Derain.
Car hire recommended to fully explore the area but with the extended range of amenities available in Collioure, which are all within a 10 minute walk and the train which connects Banyuls, Port Vendres and Argeles, it is not essential.
Nearby resorts include:
Banyuls-sur-mer - The seaside resort and marina of Banyuls-sur-mer is 8.5km away, with a pine and palm lined promenade this picturesque village is the last stop before Spain.
Port-Vendres - The fishing port of Port-Vendres just 3km away and the only natural port along the coast where between 8am and 10am you can purchase the mornings catch!
Argelès-sue-Mer - 7km away and stretching across 7km of sandy beach, this bustling resort is centred around the village centre; a funfair for children, a lengthy promenade for walking and many cafes and eateries.
Ski - Famously sunny (over 3000 hours of sunshine and cloudless skies) Fort Remeu lies approximately 115km away. The high altitude resort known as ‘The Queen Resort of the French Pyrenees’ boasts 58km of downhill skiing, over 100km of cross-country skiing, ski lifts starting at 6,000ft and with the largest artificial snow ski domain in Europe, Fort Remeu is especially popular for late-season snow. Fort Remeu provides choices for all levels of skier from baby slopes and ski school to black runs.
Golf - The 27-hole Golf de Saint-Cyprien is located just 23km away. An impressive course for all golfers, with a tree-lined and open parkland layout, it is considered one of the most reputed golf destinations in the country.
