The
Experience

It takes an artistic family like Carole’s to transform an old anchovy factory into such sweet, colourful seaside apartments. True, the location boosts their appeal tremendously: a quiet street in buzzing Collioure, famed for its fishing port, Royal Château and winding lanes lined with artists’ studios – a Fauvist legacy. The apartments stand out with their Moorish blue, terracotta and yellow walls, each with a flower-filled terrace where you can laze on loungers and soak up the sun. Inside is modern and bright: yellow walls, bold blue tiles, terracotta floors, mint-green shutters and funky furniture (great for families). Bedrooms continue the theme of colourful simplicity, with sunny shades of olive, lemon or orange, and fabric hanging space for a light, airy feel. You can whip up a meal in well-equipped kitchens and eat under the parasol in sea air tinged with citrus smells; greenery leaps joyfully up the walls. This is a place for outdoor living and summer fun: Catalan festivals, Mediterranean beaches, ancient vineyards in the hills that hug the town. Follow the coast 20 miles and you’ll hit Perpignan one way, Spain the other.

Location

The neighbourhood

Local points of interest from Michael & Carole Ginn

  • The building is a development of an old anchovy factory, famous for fishing. House 1, 3 & 4 each have patio gardens and parking in gated forecourts. Nearest beach is just 5 mins away. We accommodate mixed families in the 3 houses at a reduced rate.
  • Hire boats and kayaks on the local beach, or lounge on a sunbed. There is a cafe with great food and drink, or explore the 11th century Medieval castle. Children's playground nearby, or unwind with an evening meal in the restaurant overlooking the beach.
  • Plenty of shops, bakers, grocers along the front to keep you busy. Indulge in a pizza, Catalan food or a takeaway. Take a bus to the airport or the mountains for one euro. Adventure seekers can hire bikes and quads, dive, or ski in the mountains!
  • New beaches opened on the Nobel Heritage site. Free parking. Inquisitive types will love the Dynamite Museum and the Boat Museum. Beautiful landscape gardens surround the area and there are plenty of tourist train visits.
  • There is often live music and free entertainment on the square. Take your pick from jazz, rock & roll, or dance the night away. The Matisse trail is nearby and there are lots of art exhibitions. Lots of great tourist shops too! Find that perfect souvenier!
  • There is a scenic walkway around the castle to the main town. Take in the harbour, and book a local boat trip. You won't be disappointed. Tourist board are located nearby and have WIFI.
