This lovely village house was totally re-designed by a French Architect who created this modern haven of air and light. Fabulous south-facing views from the bedrooms and living area. Large terrace to dine and view the world. Up to the minute, top quality fixtures and fittings and new improved beautiful 2015 wooden flooring throughout; well appointed in every aspect and very comfortable. A clean and uncluttered house. With a small, private pool warmed by the summer sun - a perfect holiday and a real home. The pool is cleaned twice weekly in the summer months.
We have a personal meet and greet man to welcome guests to the house.
Collioure is a year round town where the weather is a micro-climate of sunny winter days and hot summer days. The crisp winter skies are filled with stars and the summer skies are Vermillion red. You can drive to ski resorts in just over two hours or spend spring days walking the foothills. Behind our house is a nature reserve full of wild flowers and a view that is breathtaking - 360 degrees of mountains, sea, town, hills and flowers. This is a unique paradise all year.
The town and market: The market arrives in Collioure on Wednesday and Sunday and provides an excellent meeting point for locals and visitors alike. There is entertainment almost every day in the summer from musicians to dancers and clowns and food festivals and everyone is made to feel welcome. Collioure is famous for anchovies and rarely a week goes by in the summer without an anchovy fete! The area is also famous for its cherries, apricots, peaches and of course grapes which arrive in abundance and scent the air with their perfume. Perhaps sit on the beach and let the peach juice dribble down your chin or the cherries turn your mouth blue!
Quieter times: Outside the peak holiday times Collioure is a glorious place to wander gently around with cafes on the beach to enjoy the views of the famous bell tower. Around the town are strategically placed frames which illustrate the point of painting for the famous pictures of Matisse, Derain, Picasso and Mackintosh. There are beautiful drives to take into the hills and the chance to visit the many wine tasting vineyards. There is a wonderful petit train that climbs the tiny road to the top of the hill and around the vineyards and back to Collioure - it's amazing fun and leaves from the parking area just by the bridge in the town centre on the hour. Let someone else do the driving.
