|Mindestaufenthalt||2 - 7 Nächte|
Was für eine wundervolle Lage. Die kleine aber sehr gut ausgerüstete und modern eingerichtete Wohnung lässt keine Wünsche offen. Alles funktioniert bestens. Tagsüber eine wundervolle Aussicht auf Strand und Meer. Abends glühende Sonnenuntergänge und ständig das leise Rauschen der Wellen.
Wir wurden sehr freundlich empfangen und mit guten Empfehlungen versehen. Ein Wiederkommen ist sicher.

For three weeks we had rented this great appartment in Collioure. It is never sure what to expect when one rents an appartment without actually knowing the owners, knowing the location or having seen the appartment. We were not disappointed at all. In fact it was better than we would have hoped for. The beach in front of the appartment is great. It has pebbles but also a lot of sandy spots, ideal for children, also because of the size of the beach, losing small children is not possible. Snorkling is great, the clear blue water is full of beautiful fish. Port Vendres and Collioure are both at walking distance. The appartment was fully equipped. Everything was there, incl. baby chair, snorkling gear, games, music, dvd player, washing machine, every coocking utensil you could ever think of. A trip to Barcelona or Figueres is easily made. The fishmarket in Port Vendres was a great place to buy fish and shellfish. France has become rather expensive, but the market in Port Vendres offers good products for a reasonable price (comparing is to be advised)... The scenery is stunning, let alone the view from every window of the appartment. The owners were very friendly, helpful and hospitable. We have had a magnificent holiday with our two small children and will certainly return.
La Gavina was an ideal place for a party of 5 including 2 children. The flat was is well kept and well equipped :from books and magazines in various languages, to equipment for the beach, snorkeling, etc...
The views are amazing and what a treat it was to wake up every day to the sound of the sea. We liked it so much that we stayed an extra night. Our host was very accommodating in every possible way.Thanks!
Un appartement avec une vue splendide dans toutes les pièces, très fonctionnel, calme et bien situé (à 10/15 min à pied de Collioure et Port Vendres + une plage au pied de la Résidence). Sheila TAYLOR est ponctuelle, arrangeante et disponible. Je recommande vivement et au plaisir d'y retourner une nouvelle fois.
Our arrival at La Gavina was somewhat delayed meaning the shops were shut so Sheila, the owner , offered to help by going shopping for us for a few essentials including wine! This was a godsend after a tiring journey. Sheila had been equally helpful in answering questions prior to our visit.
The first impression of La Gavina was that the main rooms were much more spacious than portrayed in the photos. The master bedroom, kitchen and living room all have plenty of space to move around. We used the master bed and the bed settee in the living room and both were really comfortable. The bathroom and WC are compact but modern with a spacious shower.
The second impression was the wow factor of the views from both balconies. The view extends across the pretty bay to Collioure and further to Argeles and the mountains beyond. The kitchen balcony is in fact an extension of the kitchen which allows al fresco dining but with plenty of shelter from the wind if needed.
The kitchen itself is really well equipped we ate in more often than not and I can't think of anything that was missing. The griddle plate for the induction hob was an excellent way of cooking fresh fish purchased fresh from the fishing boats in Port Vendres.
Port Vendres with it's busy port and selection of restaurants is 15 minutes walk away while 20-25 minutes gets you right into centre of Collioure with its 3 beaches and many other attractions. There is also a lovely coast walk to Port Vendres which takes about an hour. We also enjoyed the, similar length, walk up to Fort St. Elme.
The small beach below the apartment did get quite busy at peak times. It is ideal for relaxing, swimming and snorkelling.
Overall an excellent location to stay. Would have given 5 stars but a few minor items need upgrading. We have passed these on to the owner who was most appreciative of our comments and said that she would give them her attention.
We have always loved Collioure, my favourite part of France and it was so lovely to be able to walk into the lovely town and then come back to the apartment with such ease. The views from the lovely apartment can not be matched and to be just on the beach is brilliant. Amazing!!
