It is a terrific place and it was hard to leave that balcony!

  • 5 of 5

Everything about this rental was perfect. We had a wonderful week in this comfortable, spacious and luxuriously equipped property. You can walk in a few minutes to to the beach or to the shops to pick up the morning croissant and baguette from the bakery and the milk from the shop next door. It was so easy to self-cater and we ate exclusively on the balcony with its eternally blue skies and spectacular views of the Pyrenees.

We liked very much that everything concerned with this rental was efficient. The owner's detailed information is absolutely correct in all respects including directions for finding the apartment, and he puts you in touch with bilingual Eve Mestres, the utterly capable, effective and good humoured person who will meet you, see you out of the apartment and solve any problem or meet any need you might have. She was invaluable.

Altogether this is a super place to stay. It is good value for money and we were very happy here - especially on that balcony!

Fabulous apartment in beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

Peaceful location ,a couple of minutes walk to centre and beach .Apartment was light and airy and very comfortable .A well equipped kitchen, 2 lovely shower rooms ,a really great family base for a super holiday .Lots of outside space and beautiful views,great parking on site which is important during the busy holiday season .A pool onsite to take a dip in,what more could you need ?

A tranquil retreat from the hustle and bustle of the town and in an excellent location just a short a walk to gorgeous restaurants ,bars, marina and beach .

The beautiful town of Banyul sur Mer is surrounded by vineyards which produce fabulous wine and there's lots of opportunities to taste and buy .

To summarise ,a fabulous apartment in a wonderful location with all you need for the perfect holiday .

Large appartment, very modern with swiming pool

  • 5 of 5

We are used to rent this flat since now 3 years. I can say that this is a very intersting flat. It is located in Banyuls downtown, in the middle of the famous banyuls wine region, with both moutains and sea. This flat is in a former hotel uilding with 7 other flats. There is a private swiing pool shared between the different tenants. There are 2 terrasses whch is very convenient to have lunch or dinner and being protected from the sun or wind. One of the Terrasse has a very beautifull view on the mountain side.

The flat is pretty large (something 80 square meter) and decoration/equipment and quite new. It is located closed (200 m) to the beach, port, and all the shops. So its situation is very convenient. For all these reasons, we comes every year for a stay in this lovely flat and would like to recommend it !

de très belle vacances!

  • 5 of 5

C'est un bel et spacieux appartement très bien situé dans Banyuls. Le propriétaire bien que loin, est disponible très rapidement par mail .

il y a un parking privé et sécurisé. nous sommes accueillis par Mme Mestre qui s'occupe de la remise et reprise des clefs, parfaitement joignable avant et pendant le séjour.

piscine commune aux 8 appartements de la résidence, et assez grande pour tous. Clim dans les 2 chambres(indispensable!).2 terrasses pour pouvoir déjeuner à l'ombre à chaque repas.

Accès à tous les commerces et à la plage en moins de 5 minutes à pied.

Banyuls est très animée tout en étant calme et familiale.

nous y avons passé de très belles vacances en famille (dont 3 enfants de 15 ,12 et 8 ans).

It is beautiful and spacious one apartment very well situated in Banyuls. The owner good(well) that far, is available very quickly by e-mail.

There is a private and secure parking lot. We are welcomed by Mrs Mestre who takes care of the discount(delivery) and the resumption of the keys, perfectly reachable before and during the stay.

Swimming pool common to 8 apartments of the residence, and rather big for all. Air conditioning in 2 rooms(chambers) (essential!) .2 terraces to be able to have lunch in the shade at every meal.

Access to all the businesses and to the beach(range) within 5 minutes on foot.

Banyuls is very livened up(very led) while being quiet and family.

We crossed(spent) very beautiful holidays in family there (among which 3 15, 12 and 8-year-old children)

Wonderful accommodation in Banyuls!

  • 4 of 5

We were delighted with this lovely home in Banyuls sur Mer. A very spacious two bedroom townhouse in a quiet & convenient setting in this charming village, two patios, a swimming pool in a quiet setting. Our daughter & son in law with their two young children plus my husband & myself found the home clean, well maintained and very comfortable for all. Michael was particularly responsive and accommodating. A great location to explore a variety of villages & wineries along the coast, hiking, running, beach & parks 3 minutes away, lovely town square, shopping and delightful market. We would highly recommend and give this terrific home a 4 star rating for families. Enjoy!

Live like a local

  • 5 of 5

This private apartment complex just up the hill from the waterfront is an ideal locale for exploring Banyuls and the surrounding areas, including Catalunyan Spain. The apartment has wonderful views of the Pyrenees from the patio and well appointed furnishings for a good nights sleep. Private, off street parking is a plus as figuring out where is legal to park is a nightmare in France. The local host, Eve, was very pleasant and helpful, the local markets and restaurants delightful and a week was too short.

Banyuls-sur-mer is a beautifully situated unspoilt French seaside town, sitting in a bay in the Med, surrounded by vine covered hills and mountains, and just 10 minutes from the Spanish border. Wine growing (and tasting) is a major activity. There are endless walks and hiking routes; scuba diving, sailing and cycling. There is a playground, marina, marine reserve, aquarium and thalasso-therapy centre.

It is close to the tourist town of Collioure and 30 mins from Perpignan by car, bus(only €1) or train; the large tourist sea-sdie resorts of Argeles & St Cyprien are within easy reach. In winter,the skiing resorts are about 1.5 hours drive.

You can dine or sip wine, beer or sangria in the small bars and restaurants along the seafront and enjoy watching the world go by. Musee Malliol is a few kms from the centre. Market days are Thursdays and Sundays.

We fell in love with banyuls when we first saw it - so will you.
