There are lifts to all floors and private parking giving access out onto the port.

Close to the centre but a quiet location.

Things to do around Port Vendres: Port Vendres is situated on the coast but has escaped mass tourism, it has a commercial port in addition to the Marina and so is active all year round. It also has a fishing industry and an excellent fish market where one can dine 'al fresco' on oysters and gambas with an excellent glass (or two) of good local wine. Each morning the small fishing boats sell the catch of the day just opposite the apartment building,an occasion to practice your french with the locals.

There are a number of pleasure boats offering trips to both Collioure and the local coastline and further afield to Spain.

There is excellent public transport and a colourful tourist train that takes you up through the vineyards above giving excellent views of the port and the mountains beyond.

There are coves to swim in and just outside town is Paullies beach set in beautiful gardens with a museum and cafe.

There are two schools for sub aqua diving and sailing.

Further afield: The apartment offers the ideal base for exploring the region, with or without a car. Public transport both train and bus services enable visitors to enjoy surrounding villages including Collioure(2k), Banyuls and Argeles. Perpignan is a short train ride, and northern towns in Spain are also close.

This region has an interesting historical past, having been both Spanish and French. The city of Carcassonne is a worthwhile day trip, as is the town of Figueras just over the border in Spain, where the amazing museum created by Savador Dali stands. A visit to the home of Dali in nearby Cadaques is also recommended. There are ancient Cathar castles to see and the stunning abbey of Serabonne and many other churches and monastries .

Travel through the pyrenees to visit Andorra.

There are many local festivals of music and art, the region has played host the many of the great artists in the past, including Picasso and later Charles Rennie Macintosh lived and worked in Port Vendres.

Not to be missed: There are many local festivals of music and art to be found, details from the local tourist office. The region has always had its share of international artists and the fauvist movement was founded here. Picasso spent time here as did Charles Rennie Macintosh.

Lovely spacious central apartment with great host

  • 5 of 5

Our second visit to Pam's fabulous apartment, this time we stayed a month. The weather was great and breakfast & dinner on the balcony was a joy. We made good use of Pam,s library (books in French & English.) Much good eating locally and by walking into Colliure. It remains my favorite place to stay in the whole of France.

Amazing location

  • 4 of 5

My favourite thing about the apartment was the location, second line apartment without the noise. Excellent restaurants just a few steps away. Secure parking. The apartment was comfortable, well equipped and spacious. Pam the owner was very attentive, friendly and helpful. Payment direct to owner's bank account went well with no hitches(we opted to pay the full amount up front to avoid more bank charges). A great area of France to visit. Had a thoroughly enjoyable week. Thanks Pam.

Port Vendres stands on the coast between the stunning coastal village of Collioure, with its boutiques and artist galleries and the equally charming town of Banyuls sur mer, world famous for its superb aperitif wines.

Following the coast road with wonderful views over the Mediterranean, takes you to the northern perimeter of Spain. Girona, Figueras (with the Salvador Dali museum) and the coastal resorts of the Costa Brava. Are all withing easy driving distance with Barcelona also a possible day trip.

Nearer to hand the historic Catalan city of Perpignan is within a half hour drive, offering, museums, shopping and a variety of restaurants, theatres and cinemas. Perpignan also hosts many local events including music festivals and international exhibitions including photography, details easily available from the tourist office.

For sports lovers there are all the activities associated with the sea, including sub aqua courses, sailing and swimming. Port Vendres has three or four small beaches for swimmiing and the superb beach at Paullies just outside of town with easy access via public transport or by car. Nearby Argeles sur mer has seven kilometres of sandy beach for the serious sun bathers. Hiking on well marked trails and local bike hire is also available. There is an excellent golf course at St Cyprien, with two other good courses just over the border in Spain.
