Perched high up on the hillside, this one bedroom apartment (with a sofa-bed in the living-room) has a stunning view over the red rooftops; sloping tilescapes which lead the eye down to the boats and to the clear blue water below. It really has to be one of the very best views in town!
It's a real Mediterranean port with a real Mediterranean feel. You'll quickly fall into the rhythm of the local way of life; pop down to the quayside for your fresh fish in the morning or stay in bed and partake of the same in one of the excellent fish restaurants overlooking the port.
You can still feel the magic that attracted Charles Rennie MackIntosh and other artists 100 years ago, it's "light" is still shining brightly, it has one of the best Saturday markets in the region, great restaurants and all the street and café terrace life you would expect from a Southern French town.
There are myriad sea based activities to choose from; fishing, sailing, cruising or just lying on one of the fabulous sandy beaches to the north or rocky coves to the South.
Walk in the hills, stroll around the bay to Collioure, drive (or take the train) along the spectacular coastline into Spain. What a fabulous holiday destination!
