The
Experience

Writers, poets, singers and artists have all fallen under the spell of Collioure. Tucked away in the old quarter (blissfully car-free) is this three-storey, narrow (but with a well-designed staircase) fisherman’s cottage. Beautifully restored, it has pale painted beams in the sitting room, a palette of soft whites and creams, modern prints on the walls and the odd stripe for a jaunty nod to a nautical theme. You can hear the sea from the bedroom, restful with lovely linen and soft blues and greys, and if you put your head out of the window you see the sweep of the bay. The compact shower room is tip-top modern while the bright vaulted kitchen (reached from the front but not from the rest of the cottage) has a dining table and plenty of pots, pans and provisions; this is a proper second home to owner Heather and friend Sue. If you bring a car, you’ll be parking it in town, but you can do everything on foot: you’re a five-minute stroll to shops, markets and restaurants and a hop to the beach. Best of all: your own table and chairs in the quiet cobbled street for an evening drink. Paradis!

Reviews

Lovely little cottage in quaint cobbled street. Lovely fresh roses and wine on arrival and being met at train station all very nice touches. Beautiful place to stay and so close to the sea and within walking distance to everything. Special little place x Thank you so much

Janice, Scotland

A perfect escape from a wet Welsh autumn. Everything we needed was either to hand in this comfortable (wonderful pillows!) cottage or just round the corner, we even practised our French in the local laundrette. A car free week and Colioure delightfully tourist free and peaceful at this time of the year. Don't count on it always being so warm though so near to November, but we enjoyed tapas by the harbour in temperatures in the mid 20's. We intend to return with family or friends, there is something for everyone here.

Carolyn

Lovely cottage for 2 perfectly placed to enjoy all the delights of Collioure.

Jenny

We had a wonderful stay in Collioure in this adorable cottage. Our stay was very well-managed with a personal touch. The well-equipped house is ideally located to enjoy everything that this beautiful region has to offer!

Sharon

A charmant,cosy and well-equipped small house. The street is a point of interest but still quiet. You have no need for a car, everything is close by. Renting this property is a must do !Heather and Sue treat you correct and yet very personal.

Strybol

Just lovely! You wont want any more...so we couldn't recommend more!

Fisherman's Cottage is a delightful spot in the perfect part of this amazing town: it's within easy walking of the beautiful seafront but tucked away on a quiet, traffic-free street among the galleries. There is so much to see and do in the area, whether you're a swimmer, walker, cyclist, history enthusiast or just a lover of fine food and beautiful views. The Fete de St Vincent in August was a fantastic time for us to visit, so welcoming and buzzy. A top spot!

Dan, Southwell

Superb location, this characterful cottage for two adults is small but romantic and has all you need for the perfect stay in Collioure. Furnished and well thought out with a self contained but fully fitted kitchen with all mod cons on the ground floor. Once you get the mosquitos under control this cottage is a delight to stay in. There are stairs, so not suitable for those with disability and it would be a tight squeeze for more than two adults. We loved the property and its charm and the little items and pictures that gave it individuality and made a difference. Recommended for a special stay

Nick, Brighton

A very pretty cottage (though rather petite) perfectly situated in a pedestrianised cobbled street close to everything you will need in Collioure. Comfortable and well-equipped, obviously much loved by the owners.

Sue, London

We loved everything! The cottage is idyllic, charming, cosy and full of character. It is perfectly located in a peaceful cobbled street only minutes from the beach, cafes and restaurants. There are plenty of walks [easy and challenging], day trips into the mountains and lots of opportunities to sit and just watch the world go by. A glass of the local aperitif 'Banyuls' sitting on the harbour wall is the perfect sun downer and yes you can hear the sea in bed! Heather and Sue thank you for letting us share your special retreat. We hope to return one day. Amanda and Phil x

Amanda, Cambridge

Strategically situated in a delightful seaside village, this cottage has sea views, is a two-minute walk away from a safe beach and seafront cafes and bars. It is similarly handy to village amenities excellent restaurants and tapas bars. The cottage is delightfully furnished, and is provisioned with all the items needed for self-catering. Everything works. It is a comfortable dwelling located in a quiet coastal neighbourhood. Though small, it's on four levels, so requires some mobility, but on the other hand it would be cosy in winter. In summer, the sea breeze wafts gently in. Thumbs up-yes.

Tim, Geneva

Lovely cottage, clean and well equipped. Everything is within walking distance.

Mandy, La chatre

We arrived at Fisherman’s Cottage to a wonderfully warm welcome (thanks Sue) and felt instantly relaxed. It’s fair to say that we stayed that way the entire time, lazing by the harbour and admiring the heavenly view. The cottage itself is decorated to an exceptionally high standard, perfectly compact with everything you need at your fingertips. You are influenced by the personal touch and careful hand crafted consideration given to the cottage, which has been designed to give a perfect picture frame view of the stunning seascape. A flawless stay, one to recommend and come back to.

Hannah, York

We arrived early on the Saturday morning and were met by Sue who showed us to the cottage and gave us directions to the beach and shops :). Heather organised a taxi transfer for us which we really appreciated. The cottage is perfect, we particularly enjoyed falling to sleep with the shutters open feeling a fresh sea breeze and the sounds of the calming waves. It was also a beautiful view to wake up to. It definitely helped us to relax and the location was perfect with beaches, shops and restaurants literally at the bottom of the hill. Would recommend to friends and family, a great experience.

Jamie, Melton mowbray

Beautifully decorated ,well furnished with everything provided for a comfortable stay - even beach towels. Fabulous location on a quiet friendly street just two minutes from beaches and centre. Stunning view from cottage . Pity the shower room is so small - only a curtain for a door and poor ventilation, otherwise it would be excellent.

Paritosh

One of the most peaceful places we have stayed. Tastefully decorated with absolutely everything one could need. Close to the beach but only a short walk to the centre of town. Brilliant to be able to do so much yet not need the car for our 4 day stay. Thoroughly recommend

Anne

Relaxed and recharged after spending a week in one of the most charming, comfortable cottages we have ever stayed in. Just a short walk to the beach and a good selection of restaurants, cafes and shops within easy reach. The cottage is well equipped with everything you require to either simply relax on the beach or explore the surrounding areas. What a little gem!

Sally

Lovely little cottage in the old pedestrianised part of town minutes away from the beach, shops and restaurants. Although Collioure is busy, Rue Bellevue is like a quiet backwater away from the hustle and bustle from where you can dip into town life in between relaxing with a glass of wine and a good book. Well recommended and yes, you really can hear the sea as you go to sleep!

Chrissie

We simply reiterate everything that has already been said with the additional suggestion of taking the Train Jaune up in to the Pyrenees. It is a full day out, but if works very well by train and the views are fantastic.

Simon

We had a lovely week in this little house. Perfect location and everything you need on hand and in house. Yes, it's small but all the essentials are there and have been very well considered. We had mixed weather but mostly good and enjoyed walking, eating and exploring by bus and train.
