Newly renovated town house providing accommodation for bed & breakfast, workshops & seminars in Port-Vendres.

The Space

Designed primarily as a Bed & Breakfast, with a focus on creating a retreat for workshops and seminars, the tranquil environment of Maison Funambule delivers a sense of calm and wellbeing. The two bedrooms in the rear of the house have direct access to the garden and terrace areas. The two bedrooms in the front of the house open onto a balcony with spectacular views of Port-Vendres' hills and vineyards.
A creatively-stepped garden built into the side of the hill offers a peaceful setting in which to enjoy breakfast al fresco, or simply sip a glass of wine or take a siesta in a hammock as you survey the view from the heights of Port-Vendres.

Guest Access

Each room contains an artisan-designed ceramic washbasin with fresh linen and towels provided. The WC and bathroom are separate. There is a luxury Italian shower in the bathroom, and a hairdryer, soaps, shampoos, beauty products and an emergency kit are included for your bathing pleasure. Downstairs in the kitchen, a communal refrigerator is available for guests’ convenience. A barbecue is also available in the garden (on request).
Guests are welcome to picnic in the shady garden, thumb through the diverse library of books or borrow from our collection of documentaries on DVD, or access our WIFI Internet.

There is a private entrance for guests on the upper floor of the house, complete with outside lighting for safe entry when returning after dark.
The two bedrooms in the rear of the house have direct access to the garden and terrace areas. The two bedrooms in the front of the house open onto a balcony with spectacular views of Port-Vendres’ hills and vineyards, from which you can enjoy your breakfast.

Interaction with Guests

As owner of Maison Funambule, it is my pleasure to help guests with information about the area and its many activities. My mobile number will be available, so feel free to contact me for any reason. Please also check the website regularly for the various workshops, seminars or courses that will take place throughout the year (except during the high summer season in July and August).

The Neighborhood

Maison Funambule is far enough from the village to give you a feeling of peace and privacy, yet still only a short 10-minute walk to Port-Vendres’ charming harbor. The village boasts a range of excellent bars and restaurants where you can sample the local seafood and regional produce, wine shops that encourage you to try a degustation of superb regional wines, as well as supermarkets, a petrol station, a fish market and a tourist office.

Port-Vendres is a commercial harbour with large container ships bringing in fresh fruit and vegetables from Africa. Fisherman start the day before the sun comes up, so an early-morning stroll around the port and a swim in the crystal clear Mediterranean Sea, followed by a coffee and croissant in one of the cafes is a great way to start the day.

Getting around

By Gare SNCF (train):
“There is a small train station in Port-Vendres,10 minutes’ walk from Maison Funambule.
If you are coming from Spain, take the train to Port-Vendres via Cerbère Station, 4 km north of the Spanish border in France.
If you are coming from France, take the train from Perpignan to Port-Vendres.

By Gare Routiere (bus)
A local bus (which costs only 1 euro) travels between Cerbère and Perpignan, stopping in all the villages along the coast: Argeles sur Mer, Collioure, Port-Vendres, Banyuls and Cerbère.

By Plane
The closest airports are Gerone (ES) (1h15 min by car), Perpignan (30 min), Carcasonne (1h30 min), Barcelona (2h), and
Montpellier (2h).”

Other Things to Note

We owe some cats, but they are not present at the upperfloor where the rooms are.
Difficult access for people with reduced mobility because of several stairs.

  • Saskia has such a lovely house and she is such a lovely host! She makes you feel so welcome from the moment you set your foot on her stairs. We had a great stay, the room looked exactly as on the pictures, everything was nice and clean and both shower and toilet was cleaned everyday. Every morning Saskia makes you a wonderful breakfast with home made juices. What a treat. The area is nice and from Saskia's place it's just a five minutes walk to the harbor of Port Vendres. I could go on and on, but I'll stop by saying that this is a must-go if you're on the area. And if I ever come back I know exactly where I would go!

    Merci Saskia pour le séjour ! Le cadre est calme et reposante. Je crois que c'est la première fois que nous nous reposons autant lors de nos mini-séjours :). Nous avions une chambre côté terrasse, la terrasse est vraiment sympa et c'est un plaisir de commencer la journée en y prenant un très bon petit-déjeuner (une viennoiserie chacun, du bon pain, un bon jus d'orange fraîchement pressé, de la confiture, du beurre, du fromage, du lait, du thé, du café).
    La maison est idéalement placée : au calme, il n'est pas difficile de garer sa voiture dans la rue et pourtant pas loin du centre de Port-Vendres (et à 30 min à pied de Collioure).

    Saskia est une hôte charmante et souriante.

    A mon avis, nous nous reverrons dans quelques temps :) (sans doute quand le poids de la thèse sera un peu trop lourd, pour venir se ressourcer dans ta belle maison). Nous te souhaitons plein de bonnes choses pour la suite !

    -----

    Thanks a lot Saskia for the stay! The environment was very calm and relaxing. I think it was the first during our little stays that we rest so much. We had a room next to the patio, the patio was really nice, and it was a pleasure to start the day there by eating a good breakfast (viennoiserie, good bread, and fresh pressed orange juice, jam, butter, cheeese, milk, tea and coffee). The house is well situated: in a calm neighborhood, it's easy to find a place to park your car in the street, yet the house is close to the city-center of Port-Vendres, furthermore the house is at 30 minutes by walking from Collioure.

    Saskia is a very welcoming host.

    To my mind we will see us again in some times ( certainly when the work will be too much invasive and to revitalize in this beautiful house). We wish you the best of luck for what is coming.

    Merci beaucoup Jennifer de votre réponse généreuse ! J'ai été ravie moi aussi de votre visite, et vous serez les bienvenus quand vous le souhaitez. Je suis contente que vous avez été satisfaits et que vous avez du coup bien pu fêter l'anniversaire. A bientôt !

  • Our vacation in Port Vendres was fantastic! Primarily we were looking for accommodation in Collioure but there was nothing available for the time we planned to go there therefore I started looking for places in the surrounding area. It was a very good move! Collioure gets much crowed whereby Port Vendres is very quiet, you can eat well and the sea is as beautiful as in Collioure.
    Saskia is a fantastic host! The house is newly renovated and has its charm. You can tell immediately that the owner has an artistic spirit. I loved the garden and pity that we couldn’t stay longer but we do hope that we can find time for another vacation in Port Vendres. If we do so, definitely we would try to get the same accommodation. I fully recommend it!

  • Saskia nous a vraiment bien accueillie. Les chambres sont parfaitement décorées, l'endroit est calme et reposant. Nous avons pu prendre le petit déjeuner dans le jardin. Un hébergement a recommander à trois minute de Collioure.

  • Gastvrije ontvangst door Nederlandse gastvrouw. Kamer is schoon, niet ruim, met balkon en ruim uitzicht. Eigen opgang (trap op). Gratis parkeren in de straat. Wastafel op de kamer. Badkamer en toilet op de overloop, zijn schoon en net. Ontbijt bij mooi weer in de tuin of op balkon. Gastvrouw kan je tips geven over restaurants en leuke trips in de buurt.

  • To visit Collioure I would always prefer to stay in Port Vendres. It is not so touristic, has a beautiful harbor and the bus connections are easy. Saskia picked me up at the station with a warm welcome. Her little B&B is new. It is very modern, aesthetic and tasteful furnished. It creates a good energy. The shared bathroom is always clean. Good mattress let you sleep well, it is calm. And every morning a tasty breakfast in the garden behind the house. Everywhere you can find nice little details and art work which makes the place so special. Saskia has always an open ear for your wishes. She is a wonderful host and let you feel well. I will definitely come back to meet her again. Thank you, Saskia, for this wonderful time. Anita
    PS: I can recommend a day trip to Cadaques to see the S.Dali House-Museum in Portiligat.

About
Amoureuse de la peinture, des vins, de la mer et du pays Catalan (autant du côté de la France qu'en Espagne), après 18 ans circulant dans des régions en France, l'Espagne et la Belgique, j'ai opté à transformer une maison en maison d'hôtes dans un lieu apaisant qu'est Port Vendres au pied des Pyrenées dans la région du Roussillon, à 20 kilomètres d'Espagne. Ce petit coin au bord de la Méditerranée est plein d'histoire et de magie. La lumière y est fantastique, éblouissante à des moments, ce qui a attiré de nombreux peintres, écrivains et d'autres artistes, et le changement du paysage de quelques kilomètres à d'autres est incroyable. Ce lieu je l'ai créé afin de proposer aux voyageurs un lieu de ressource au calme. La maison ainsi que le jardin propose des coins très tranquilles. Un lieu aussi où j'organiserai avec des animateurs des séminaires, ateliers créatifs et soirées ou semaines à thème. Des dégustations, randonnées, sorties en mer, beaucoup de choses y sont possibles et sont à découvrir. L'intention de la maison Funambule est que vous rentriez chez vous plus serein et apaisé.
