Maison Minou

Collioure, Pyrénées-Orientales

Light, flexible space on pedestrian street near beach – independent studio, open plan beamed living area, Mediterranean views from mezzanine


3 bedrooms


Sleeps 6


An especially fun place on a higgledy, colourful pedestrian street, two minutes’ from the beach. Behind the traditional facade of this old fisherman’s house is a modern holiday home for a couple or families. The independent studio (available separately) is at street level, then up on the first floor is a double and twin-bedded room, each with shower room, and on the second is a large open living and dining space. There’s a seriously equipped kitchen (the owners are keen cooks) to one side, a big dining table and, at the far end, two sofas, one of which converts to a bed. Find a pleasing scattering of Moroccan rugs and fabulous floor to oak-beamed-ceiling windows. Floors are wooden, walls pleasingly irregular, furniture a successful mix of antique, rustic and modern; light pours in between majestic beams; walls are white-painted except for the open stonework behind the kitchen and the light-filled mezzanine. There’s an extra sofabed, loo and basin up here too. You get views of the Mediterranean and Collioure, with its six beaches, buzzes all summer of course. Perpignan’s 30-minutes by train.

The neighbourhood

Local points of interest from May & David Lavery

  • Maison Minou is only a quick amble for a swim in the azure waters of the Mediterranean sea at Collioure's only sandy beach, Plage d'Avall.
  • Collioure's bustling farmers' market on Wednesdays and Sundays is the place to buy locally grown organic veggies, bio-dynamic cheeses and saucission from the Pyrenees, home made jams and other Catalan goodies.
  • A stone's throw away, explore the Chateau Royal which dates back to the 6th century. Hike through olive groves to the windmill or Fort St Elme for some of the best views in Collioure.
  • La Cave a Fefe on rue Democratie is our local wine bar. Felix and Bea Marty are wonderful hosts and their wine selection features a carefully curated list of some of the best wines the Languedoc Roussillon region has to offer.
