About Mark Hamlet
I was schooled within walking distance of a beach on the South coast of England and now live in the centre of England, hence the desire to have somewhere by the sea
Mark Hamlet purchased this House in 2004
Why Mark Hamlet chose Collioure
We looked at many places in the region but as we drove down the hill into Collioure the whole family became excited. We have now been coming here for many years but never tire of the place or its views

Second stay at this well appointed apartment
This was our second stay at this apartment. Which is ideally located in the attractive small town of Collioure, with a easy walk to the beaches and restaurants. All in all a great base for a relaxing holiday.
Two week stay in June 2019
The house was lovely - immaculately clean and very well furnished - and made us feel as if we were staying in our own home. There are beautiful views from the balconies to the sea and the elevated position above the adjoining local street made it very quiet. The communal pool is high quality and very well maintained and a delight to use. Highly recommended!
Lovely apartment in a fantastic location
This apartment was spotlessly clean and a great size. The living room/kitchen has a fantastic view of the sea and a really good sized terrace. The upstairs bedrooms were of a decent size and the main bedroom also has a fantastic view from the terrace. It is only a short stroll of about 15mins from here to the beautiful small town of Collioure with its abundance of restaurants. The only suggestion I would make is that the bathroom could do with a shower curtain fitted.
A gem of a property.
The house is very comfortable and was easy to keep cool in the very hot weather. The pool was well kept, busy during the day, but lovely first thing in the morning with the sun coming up. The nearest beach is 10 minutes walk and although pebbly, the waters were crystal clear and lovely for swimming. The views from the balcony were spectacular, especially as we had a couple of electrical storms where the whole sky was lit up. It takes about 10 mins to walk into Collioure (15 to walk back up the hill) so is very convenient and we enjoyed walking in in the evening for a meal, drink or ice cream. Collioure is a beautiful town, buzzing in the high season with music and art exhibitions around the harbour. We were also lucky enough to be there for Bastille Day fireworks and France winning the World Cup. We traveled by train, London, to Paris to Perpignan and then the local train to Collioure. This was a very relaxing and surprisingly easy way to get to there. we then managed without a car for the week.
Thank you to Mark for the ease of booking and for sorting out our queries. In summary and well appointed, comfortable property in a beautiful area of France.We are looking forward to going back, at a slightly quieter time of year.
We are so glad you enjoyed your stay and look forward to welcoming you back in the future
Excellent apartment in a wonderful location
A well appointed comfortable apartment in a wonderful location, plenty of walking and things to do in the area, in and around the historic town of Collioure. Will visit again in the future.
A lovely, well equipped apartment
This is a lovely apartment and we had a fantastic time. The kitchen is well equipped (with a particularly impressive collection of chopping knives - a bugbear of ours is that holiday apartments often have terrible knives!) - there are two hobs, and a microwave which also does roasting, grilling etc. The large living room leads onto a nice balcony with great sea views. Upstairs the two bedrooms are comfortable (one has a balcony) and the bathroom is very nice. The apartment is a walk from the town - no more than 15 minutes unless you have dawdling kids in tow as we did. Collioure itself is a nice place, with lots of places to eat, a series of small beaches and a great harbour walk. If you like massive sandy beaches then Argeles, about 15 minute drive away, is a good bet.
Collioure is an ancient fishing village nestled between the Pyrenees and the Mediterranean. Known as the gem of the Roussillon coast. Situated in the heart of Catalan country, the local culture, folklore, tradition and food of Collioure reflect its proximity to Spain and its traditional links to the sea. The four small bays and beaches of Collioure are flanked by a 13th century castle and a medieval church. This most charming and picturesque village full of tradition and history captivated the imagination of painters Matisse and Derain who stayed in Collioure in 1905. Even today many artists have their ateliers in the centre of the village.
Although now a modern seaside resort with a wide range of restaurants and shops, the village has kept its charm and atmosphere.Collioure is the kind of place you fall in love with and want to come back to again and again to enjoy its beautiful weather and special atmosphere.
