There is always something to keep us engaged.

  • We really enjoyed our staying in the apartment. Located right in the centre of magnificent Collioure, the apartment was fully renovated and is in perfect conditions. I would even say it looks much better than in pictures. Petra kindly met us on the first day, showed apartments, provided all information about the city, shops, restaurants and etc. We also really appreciated her welcome presents - wine, chocolate and jam. During our stay we didn't have any problems or issues, Petra was available by phone and helped with our every request. I very very very recommend this apartment for everyone who would like to spend a few days or weeks in beautiful Collioure.

  • Petra's apartment was fantastic. Very modern and comfortable. It's in a great location, with restaurants and bakeries almost at your doorstep. Our kids loved it! Petra was very accommodating, helping us park and carry luggage. She also had a nice bottle of wine and milk, OJ in the fridge for us. Also with in walking distance to the beach. About a 3 minute walk. And you can hike right from the apartment also. Overall, it was a great place to stay. Thanks, Petra!!

  • Thanks for the perfect break in the perfect location Petra and Malcolm!! A great apartment, beautifully renovated and appointed, and stocked with everything you need, Petra and Malcolm were awesome hosts. We especially appreciated the lift to and from the railway station, the thoughtful touches of wine and milk etc included, and tolerance of our children! The apartment is literally a stone's throw from the water, and Collioure had all the charm we expected, and more. A very memorable holiday, and perfect place to stay - fully recommend. And great to find some fellow Kiwi's on our travels!! Hope to be back soon.

  • Merci à Petra et Malcolm pour leur excellent accueil ; nous avons vraiment apprécié leur appartement, il est spacieux, beau, propre et ils ont pensé à tout. L'emplacement plein centre de Collioure vous fera vite oublier les 3 étages à monter, on n'est pas à quelques marches près...

  • Bonjour,
    nous avons séjourné en famille avec nos 2 petits garçons dans l'appartement de Petra et Malcom.
    L'appartement était conforme à la description sur le site.
    Nous avons eu la sensation d'être à la maison car l'appartement comporte tout le confort nécessaire.
    Enfin sa situation géographique est exceptionnelle car la plage est à 1minute à pied, tout en étant au calme.
    Bref un appartement où nous envisageons déjà de séjourner à nouveau.
    Et une adresse à recommander

About
We both love people and travel. We are fortunate to have a wonderful family spread around the world and now Malcolm and I have moved from New Zealand to Collioure France to be able to enjoy more of Europe and be closer to friends and some of our family. I adore the food in France , the fresh fruit and vegetables and markets make cooking a joy. Sunshine and warmth are abundant and we love the more laid back attitude where you take time to enjoy the food ,wine and friends. I am still learning to slow down and daily swimming up till November helps.
