we had a lovely 4 nights at this hotel, which certainly has the best possible position, being within walking distance of the town, harbour, beach, and chateau, yet has an aura of calm as soon as you enter it.
The hotel is an old house, and reflects this in the styles of furnishings and rooms. The room we were given was on the second floor, up two spiral staircases, and had strange beams across it. It also smelt of smoke. Apparently, although a non smoking hotel, some people still had smoked in the room, which wasn't the fault of the management. However the two nice ladies on reception found us another room on the ground floor in the annexe. This room, no, 17 was well equipped, but rather small and squashed for us. However it was right by the garden, and pool, which was lovely and a great advantage. If we went back we would ask for room 16, next door, or a room above with a balcony. 16 was bigger and brighter. Our room was very clean, but oddly there was no plug in the basin, which was quite modern. We asked about this, and were told somewhat offhandedly by the assistant manager that this was how it was, and nothing could be done. The towels were a bit small and sometimes had holes in.
We didn't have the breakfasts as they were so expensive, but they looked nice. There is no food served there at lunch or dinner time, - a shame really.
The receptionists and young men working there were all helpful and friendly.
The pool area was charming, the pool was not cold, although not very hot, but refreshing and nice. Big towels were provided for swimming, and put out twice a day on the sunbeds.
We liked the hotel generally and would go there again if we went back to Collioure, which we hope to do one day.
Finding the hotel and parking: firstly, the hotel is hard to find. Our satnav took us very near, but we kept missing the road to the hotel, because it isn't really a road, just a tiny very narrow cul de sac. We went up and round the roundabout at the top 3 or 4 times before we found where to go. There is a mainish street, with a square on one side and on the other side there are cafes and shops. Between these cafes and shops are two hotels in these tiny cul de sacs, and La Casa Pairal is one of them. You can drive down to unload, and then reverse out. Their car park is just up the road, outside a smaller hotel owned by the same company. There is a secure gate there through to the swimming pool area of La Casa, so actually very close if you need to fetch something from the car etc.
Collioure itself is utterly delightful, - we never moved the car in our time there, just wandering around the tiny streets, climbing up to see the views, going round the Chateau, drinking, eating........ Highly recommended as a place to visit, and La Casa is probably the best hotel overall there.
