about Collioure

Posted by Lew Weinstein on February 25, 2007

Our magical fishing village of Collioure is located in the south of France, on the Mediterranean, about 25 miles north of the French-Spanish border. The nearest large city is Barcelona.

Our apartment is described in detail at, where we are listing #52059. Let us know if you’d like to swap homes.

Collioure is a delightful blend of narrow cobblestone streets, art galleries, restaurants ranging from gourmet to pizza, boutique shops, beaches, spectacular views, and friendly people.

During the summer season, there is frequent local entertainment showcasing the unique Catalan culture. A fresh air market comes to town year round, on Sunday and Wednesday mornings, bringing fresh produce, cheeses and spices. The local wines are outstanding and inexpensive (3-4 euros a bottle).

Additional information and photos can be found at the Collioure Tourist Office site (see blogroll)

  1. Hi Lew and Pat
    I posted a note on another part of your site and have not left!! I have been reading all your notes with great interest. From the other post I mentioned that we also have a place in Collioure at if you’d like to see our place a bit more. We are in the Faubourg just behind the Faubourg Beach.
    We will be there late May 2007 so it would be great to meet with coffee and exchange notes as we spent three years waiting for the ‘right’ place for us to become available in Collioure andf are also very interested to learn more about home exchange. All the best
