The
Experience

A great spot for two right in the heart of this unspoilt, cobbled fishing village, home of the Fauves artists. You walk from the street into the old fisherman’s house on four floors, restored tenderly now in greys and ochres with smooth oak floors and plenty of space. A bright, uncluttered kitchen leads to a spiral staircase (not for the less than nimble) and your robin’s egg blue bedroom with super bed, good lighting, full length windows and a smart mosaic-tiled bathroom. Up more stairs is the peaceful living room which has two large sofas, some exposed stone walls, works by local artists and a view out to a blue-shuttered house. Keep going up to find another sitting room with big sliding glass doors onto the sunny terrace with views to the bay and mountains; this is the best place for a sundowner. Leave your car (you won’t need it) near the railway station (it’s free) having dropped your luggage off at the top of the street. Step from the door into the old town, amble to two beaches, plenty of good Catalan restaurants, cafés for WiFi, a modern art museum and twice-weekly markets. A delightful little gem.

Reviews

Rue Mirador is one of the prettiest streets in the incredibly quaint and picturesque harbour town. The house has been stylishly decorated and furnished with clever use being made of the space available which is very cosy for a couple. Definitely the "piece de resistance" is the roof top terrace where it is perfect to start the day with a cheery "bonjour" to the neighbours across the cobbled street or enjoy a chilled rose in the evening gazing out at the twinkling lights reflected in the sea.

We loved it!

Frances, London

This is a fab place to chill right in the middle of a pretty medieval French town. Lovely neighbours. Fantastic seafood. Just 2 minutes walk to the beach. No cars and no stress. Highly recommend for a getting away from it all break.

Gary, Lynghurst

Via the train from Montpellier Airport, we were delighted to discover the gem that is Collioure and this beautifully restored Fisherman’s Townhouse. Moments from the beach, the property is full of character and finished to a very high standard. Maria Parviz and her husband David have gone out of their way to ensure that their guests can enjoy a comfortable and relaxing stay yet you are also only steps away from a great selection of bars, restaurants, shops and water-sports. We would highly recommend this property to another couple looking to discover this hidden gem in the Pyrénées-Orientales.

Beautifully proportioned townhouse, stunning decor, well equipped kitchen. A short stroll for an early morning dip, return via the baker for the freshest croissant and bread you will have ever had, aperitifs on the sun deck look at the superb view over the med, numerous dining options taking in vistas of the Chateau, Castle and Church. Hike through the vine clad hills, or day trip to Gerona if you can pull yourself away from your sun bed on the beach. Fabulous!

Jo, London

We had a wonderful stay in this gorgeous french village. The house was superbly located with great character and well cared for. We would definitely recommend it and hope to return one day.

Andrew

Ideally located close to the centre of Collioure, only a few minutes walk from the harbour, shops, restaurants and the twice weekly market. Collioure is a blend of French and Spanish influences, with a Catalan character. The house is well equipped comfortable and on a picturesque narrow street, with art galleries close by.

David, Chester

A delightful property just a couple of minutes from the front in this wonderful town. Everything is of an extremely good standard from the well equipped kitchen all the way up to the top floor terrace with its terrific views. It was a pleasure to sit at the kitchen table, with the windows open wide, exchanging "Bon jours" with passers by. It was so peaceful at night despite Collioure being a busy seaside town. Ms Parviz has made this property a lovely place to stay which I can highly recommend. The spiral staircase will help keep you fit after all the delicious croissants you'll eat!

David, Ludgershall

A great place to stay in a wonderful location. The house is lovely. Tastefully decorated and furnished with a well equipt kitchen. Everything you need for staying in or going out. The house instruction folder is is well written and very useful especially in planning expeditions as there is so much to see and do.

David, Woking

This delightful house is so well placed for a wonderful week in beautiful Collioure. The house contained all that you need for a very comfortable week. The top floor with its shaded balcony is delightful to spend time over a meal with lovely views. There is plenty to see in Collioure to keep you busy all week. We travelled by train which worked really well. There is an excellent market and a good mini supermarket if you want to create your own meals from the excellent local produce. Highly recommended if you want a 'buzzy' place to stay.

Lorraine, Brighton

Our stay at this beautiful house was fantastic. The house is situated on an extremely picturesque street and only a very short stroll to the beach, restaurants and town, but still feels private and really relaxing. The house is beautifully decorated and the view of the sea and hills from the roof terrace is stunning; it is the perfect place to relax after a day of walking or swimming in the sea. Collioure itself is absolutely wonderful with fabulous restaurants. We would highly recommend this property for a couple.

Emma, Gloucestershire

I have stayed in this beautiful little house on several occasions. The house is situated in a pretty, quiet street literally a couple of minutes from the beach and the town with all its restaurants and bars. The house itself is well equipped and very comfortable. There is a cosy lounge which is very cool in the summer but for me the best feature of this house is the roof terrace which gets the evening sun and has stunning views over the rooftops to the sea and the mountains beyond. I would thoroughly recommend this house for a relaxing holiday.

Local points of interest from Maria Parviz

  • Collioure is known as the jewel of the Mediterranean, there's plenty to see and do all year round. From Jan-Dec there are festivals, events, music and art exhibitions. Check with the Tourist Board to see what's happening during your stay.
  • Relax on the beaches, explore the forts, the windmill or the Museum of Modern Art. If you want something more active then there's diving, windsurfing, kayaking, tennis, cycling, boat trips & scenic coastal walks.
  • There are 3 spectacular fireworks displays: the Festival of St Jean in June, the festival of St Vincent in August and New Years Eve.
  • If you want to travel further, Ceret is a lovely town with a very good Museum of Modern Art. The Spanish border is only 30 minutes away, take the coastal road to Cadaques and visit the Dali Museum. Girona is also worth a day trip.
  • If you haven't got a car, there's a great bus service, and the train station is only 10 minutes walk from the house.
