This studio is compact BUT has been incredibly well designed and fitted out with quality fixtures and fittings and was more than comfortable for the week that we stayed there. It had everything we needed including a well equipped kitchen and free WiFi! And the bed was very comfortable. The owners seemed to have thought of everything and were very responsive to our questions before we departed for France.
It is in a great location in a lane way just one block back beach. We loved sitting at the table for breakfast with the windows and shutters open and enjoying the ambience of a French village.
The studio is a only 2-3 mins walk to some great restaurants and cafes, a beautiful bakery and some good wine shops. And just 5 mins away is a very good supermarket if you need it . But, please do use the open-air produce market which operates twice a week, again, 5 mins walk from the studio.
Collioure itself is a lovely large seaside village. Yes, it does get very busy in the summer but it copes and the tourists are nearly all French, which we liked a lot. It is also a great base for exploring more widely. And if you're visiting, make sure you download the owners' app to your smart phone - it is packed with information on what to do in the village and beyond - we found it to be a very useful resource.
Would we recommend the studio to friends? Yes, we have already done so. Would we go back? Absolutely - and this time for longer than a week!
