Are you sure about train service from the Perpignan airport? I certainly do not remember seeing any.

There are taxis and a shuttle bus.

From Perpignan you can take the train to Collioure for the less than 25 minute ride. Cost for the train is about 5€ and there are numerous departure throughout the day:

I visit the area regularly.

Taxis are expensive as it is about 30km from Perpignan Airport to Collioure.

Trains are irregular, very infrequent on Sundays and do not run late into the evenings.

You can download the complete timetable at

ter-sncf.com/languedoc/…index.asp

There are a few buses Perpignan - Collioure

but none on Sundays.

Hope that helps.

We stayed at Les Templiers in late September and have no complaints. It is certainly central, and about a 10 minute walk from the train station.

You can get a shuttle bus which meets every plane. This will take you to the train and bus station. We have found the trains to be very good and not too expensive. Bus costs about €4 and train about the same.

Great way to arrive, the station in Collioure is not far from the centre.

Would recommend the Casa Parail Hotel or Les Templiers.

Have fun

We stayed last year for two nights only at Le Triton,in a room with sea view and balcony, a short walk across the Bay. Basic, small rooms but comfortable and clean.

Friends stay frequently at Les Templiers and speak well of it.

Earlier this month we rented a cottage in Collioure but took a look at both Casa Pairal and Le mas des Citronniers, both of which looked attractive.

All these hotels are very central. There are many,many restaurants, cafes and also taleaway pizza establishments. Cafe Sola opposite the bus station has free wi-fi. The Yellow tourist train leaves from the bus station as well of course as other service buses to local areas .

The railway station a few minutes walk, slightly uphill, but people with roller cases can often be seen coming and going betwen the station and the centre.

There are markets on Sunday and Wednesday mornings.

Have a good time.
