About the property

Peaceful situation close to the the centre of Port-Vendres

The flat is in an exceptionnal location perched on an unspoilt hillside above the port. There are panoramic views of Port-Vendres, the port and the foothills of the Pyrenees. If you follow the path over the hillside you are standing above the Mediterranean, with the coastline stretching into the distance. Access to the flat is by foot: up a flight of steps and along a winding path past a row of picturesque houses, mainly inhabited by old ladies and pussycats.

Guestbook comments from the owner

‘A lovely apartment. Quite a climb but really worth it. Port-Vendres seems a real place, full of bustle, with something new to see every minute and gorgeous views, and with none of the pretentious of Collioure’

‘A room with a view and forever changing. A steep but charming walk up here with cats and kittens everywhere. The fish market has the freshest fish we've ever seen. It is great to have oysters and champagne at the oyster bar there!’

A room with a view

  • 4 of 5

We're fairly fit so the steps and pathway were a pleasure not a problem. The description on the site is fair, and the view from the small balcony is extensive and interesting.

It is fully equipped with everything we needed, and you can eat very tastefully out of the boulangerie, patisserie, boucherie and small supermarket by the harbour if you don't want to eat out.

Parking was not a problem in June, but as you now have to pay to park in the square, you may prefer to find a space on the streets.

Very nice walking in the area - see port vendres official site for a link to several from an English couple, copies were available in the flat.

We had an excellent week, and are even contemplating a return - we haven't returned to the same place in 50 years!

Adorable petit nid perché sur Port Vendres

  • 5 of 5
Verified Stay

Nous avons adoré cette location parfaitement située avec vu sur le port de plaisance.

A quelque minute de collioure a pied.

Tout les matins, a 10 minutes de l’hébergement, petite baignade dans une charmante petite crique.

Bref le bon plan pour un jeune couple.

Merci Caroline

Nice and cosy apartment above the harbor

We have spent a few days there during July and enjoyed Port-Vendres being apart from the more touristy places in the area.
