“An excellent base from which to enjoy the area”
Reviewed 21 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

We (four adults) stayed for a long weekend in May and had a fabulous time.

Résidence Colline is ideally located just a short, pleasant walk from the centre, mainly along a pedestrian-only path. The layout of the apartment was perfect for us – we used the separate lounge/diner, with its sofa bed, as a third bedroom. The two outdoor areas on opposite sides of the apartment gave us the chance to sit and enjoy both the morning and afternoon sun.

Some other reviewers have mentioned problems with parking in the allocated garage. However, although it was a squeeze, we managed to park our rented VW Tiguan. (The caretaker later offered us a space outside the garages.)

My main reservation is that the hot water supply seemed to be limited: the smallish tank appeared only to heat up in the middle of the night. Not realising this, on the first two days we ran out of hot water by running baths. On our last night, we managed to stretch the hot water to four showers. There were also some slightly dodgy looking electrics.

Of course, Collioure is lovely – picturesque, and with some superb restaurants. And, as well as all the attractions of the town itself, there are rewarding walks along the coast and up into the hills. This apartment is a good base from which to enjoy the area.

“a very good base”
Reviewed 7 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

The apartment was very pleasant and spacious, almost too big for just two of us !!
The furniture and furnishings were good for renting standards and the bed was comfortable.
There was a very small sitting out area for two at the front. A good place to sit and to make contact with the neighbours. The rear patio was larger and could take six (but not many more). It was shaded in the afternoon (late August) and there was a very large good quality sun umbrella if needed.
In short there was everything there that we required.
The parking was a bit difficult. I did try to get our rented Renault Clio in the space, but once parked I couldn't open the door to get out.. Patrick the guardien, found us one of the few outside spaces. In the height of the season this may be a bit of a problem.
HOWEVER, you one doesn't need to use the car. The village is an easy 10/15 minute stroll and everything you need is there !!. The two town beaches can be a bit crowded, so our top tip is go to the small pebbly Plage Boutigue to the south of the esplanade, there's lots of fish here, I also swam underwater with a cormorant !! Yes honestly !!
Overall a very pleasant stay, with owners on the other end of a text/phone if needed.

“Peaceful Retreat”
Reviewed 5 July 2015 for a stay in June 2015

person found this review helpful

We've just stayed for 10 nights in this lovely spacious apartment. It was immaculately clean and extremely well equipped like being home from home! The only thing that was missing was a canopy or parasol in the back terrace as it gets full sun in the afternoon with no shade. The apartment block is very quiet and peaceful and looks like it is well maintained. Patrick the Gardien is a lovely chap, very helpful though doesn't speak English!
We were allocated sun beds at the pool but anybody seems to use them this is not a problem though as there are plenty to use and the pool is very quiet sometimes we had it to ourselves!
The shortcut along the ravine down to the centre of Collioure is very easy to find and takes about 10 - 15 minutes to walk depending on how fast you walk. We also walked back late at night (11ish) and felt safe as it's well lit with street lights.
We didn't have a car so can't comment on the garage but it must be an asset as parking is very limited in Collioure.
Collioure is such a beautiful place with lots of character, amazing restaurants and unique shops. Market day is on Sunday's and Wednesday's and is well worth a visit!
If we come back to Collioure again we would definitely stay in Residence Colline again it's perfect.

“The most relaxing holiday ever in Collioure”
Reviewed 10 June 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Myself and a few friends stayed in this apartment for our week's stay in Collioure and it was perfect. The apartment has everything you could possibly need, is spacious, spotless, quiet and a short walk from the village. Collioure itself is absolutely beautiful and the perfect place to enjoy the sun, sea, restaurants & sights. I stayed here for a week last year too and will definitely be going back.

“Large apartment in walking distance of beautiful town of Collioure”
Reviewed 22 December 2013 for a stay in October 2013

The apartment was large with a comfortable queen size bed and a very well equipped kitchen. It was located outside the town of Collioure and took about 10 to 15 minutes to walk into town. Parking in town is difficult, so walking was essential. As the apartment complex is on a hill (as the name indicates), you need to be reasonably fit. There is car parking but this is on a car stacker which is difficult to manoeuvre the car onto and there is not much space to turn the car into the garage. Therefore, I doubt that you could park a large car in the space designated for the apartment and there is no alternative parking on site.
The instructions on how to use the TV or the DVD player (as you can't have both modes simultaneously) did not fully explain what you actually had to do. I think there were some cables which had to be swopped before we could get the other mode to work. The most annoying thing was that the washing machine is on a timer. The instructions about this are in an unlabelled folder under the hall table which mainly contains tourist information on the area, so they are not immediately apparent. The timer only comes on for 2 hours in the day, which is too short as the wash programmes are generally the same length and there is no electronic display of the time for each programme and you can only find this out by reading the manufacturer's manual for the machine (which I remember being in French and may not have been available in English as well). It also comes on at unspecified times during the night, so, if you want to hang up your washing to avoid it getting too creased you either have to wait up all night or do it when you wake up (by which time it could have been in the machine for hours). A note actually next to the machine about this and specifying the night time hours would be more helpful, plus at least 3 hours during the day to give enough time to sort out the machine programme and have enough time for it to end before the machine turns off.

Management Response
29 Dec 2013
Thank you very much for taking the time to review the apartment and sincere apologies for any inconvenience caused by any of the issues that arose in your review. On the issue of car parking we have used the allocated space for our family estate car. We didn't realise the TV/DVD instructions were difficult to follow but we will rectify that during our next visit prior to the start of the next season. The washing machine was only installed during the summer as the previous one gave up the ghost. There is a alternate socket that can be used at any time but the note indicating same must have mistakenly been thrown out with the old machine - we only discovered this during our recent visit. We'll have a note on this point in the visitor instructions together with a note in English on the various cycles which should help guests going forward.
