Accomodation in Collioure

Earlier you reserve, cheaper will be the price. May is in Hight Season !!


The Tourism office website can give you all pratical information:



on hotels (Can I tell you my kindness for the charm of the Templiers, for the professionnalism of the Princes of Catalogne , for the provincial luxury of the Casa Pairal , for the nice prices of the Bona Casa or for familly, the Maeva -to be reserve on Sncf.Voyages-, and, ... if you want a good located and renovated hotel, try the Frégate. Make you choice freely, I tried most of them, and no one is bad.

You will find other opinions on Tripadvisor or on l'Internaute or on Ciao or on Google.

Dont spend time to search on,,, They don't propose anythink for Collioure; Nothing on or RatesToGo either.

on the occupant's rooms

on the furnished flat, which is the best tip, if you can prolonge you ship for 5 days at least (for less, it's difficult to find a flat); In this case, you can also consult a specialised agency (I had a kindness for Mer et Soleil, but agence PY allows probabely a larger choice)
