Clean, modern apartment, ideal location

  • 5 of 5

Thank you to the owner Mathew for helping us with the flexible booking dates. Also, thank you to Eve for greeting us on arrival and showing us around the apartment. It was good to know that someone local was available to help with any problems.

The apartment was well furnished and had everything we needed. The dishwasher and air conditioning were added bonuses.

The apartment was ideally located with easy walking access to the supermarket, bakers and restaurants and we particularly enjoyed the view from the terrace, overlooking the harbour. Car parking space was easy to access, and useful as on street parking was difficult to find.

We would certainly recommend this property to friends and family.

Modern apartment, well appointed, convenient base

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is clean, modern and has everything you might need for a stay in Port Vendres. We liked the balcony with views across the town to the hills. Port Vendres has lots of bars and restaurants and provided a calmer alternative base to the busier resorts like Collioure, which is only 5 minutes drive away but always absolutely rammed with tourists!

Great position and modern comforts

  • 5 of 5

This maisonette is positioned just behind the front row of harbour properties and with steps or a lift down to harbour level, you can quickly and easily get to the harbour restaurants, cafés etc. The local buses offer €1 per journey, so transport to the other towns on the coast is so easy you don't need to get your car out! It was ideal for us for the first break of the year. Don't miss a trip to Collioure!

Well positioned apartment in Port Vendres. Fully equipped, comfortable and peaceful.

  • 4 of 5

The apartment was exactly what we wanted - near to the Port and with secure parking. We know Port Vendres well and enjoyed the peace of the out of season period.

We are a family of 5 who have travelled from London by car, The apartment was very good and it was better than I thought and better than the pictures, It was clean, the rooms had air conditioning as well as the living room and the bedrooms were a very good size. There was lift available and a very secure private parking which was a bonus. Nice and friendly neighbourhood and great view from the terrace. I would definitely recommend this apartment to a family or single person. We loved our stay here and got all the help we needed. I will definitely rent this apartment for another time.

Splendid place!

  • 5 of 5

Vacationing family of five (two children, wife and mother-in-law) for three weeks. The impression of living is extremely positive! New, modern house with an elevator and a parking spot in the garage (for us it was important because we were traveling by car). Provided that it is not our first trip to the south of France, is one of the best places where we live. Each room has air conditioning, everything you need (and more) in the kitchen, etc. The apartment has a full-sized bathroom, which is surprising considering that before this we had only bathrooms with shower. It is also convenient that the two-storey apartments on the first floor bedrooms, bathroom and toilet and a second living room with balcony and kitchen. Nearby there is a market, supermarket and many small cafes. The only negative is sometimes (depending on the program of entertainment the city) can sound loud music until late. However, noise isolation is good enough for us and the inconvenience of concerts was not. Generally these apartments are very suitable for families with children, lots of space and separate bedrooms. Near bus stop to Perpignan, costs 1 euro. One stop to the beach or 15 minutes on foot. We hope our review will be useful to you, enjoy your stay!

From the Owner

We have been visiting the Languedoc-Roussillon region for many years, as several of our family live here, and we love to spend time in the area. We discovered Port-Vendres about 10 years ago, and we chose to buy here because it has a unique feel, and it is an interesting place to stay at any time of year (unlike some of the other resorts which seem to shut down outside of the Summer season.)

Car hire is recommended. The apartment comes with its own space in the secure parking facility within the building.

Some public transport and taxis are available from Perpignan airport (be sure to check in advance)

Nearest train station: Port-Vendres (0.5 km)

Nearest motorway: E15 at Le Boulou (29 km). Connects Perpignan with Barcelona.


The port, which is the centre of the town, is just two minutes' walk away. Here you will find many cafes, restaurants and shops, plus all the entertainments in the square.

You can walk to Collioures in about 30 minutes, but in season there are regular buses (that look like steam trains) to take you there. These leave from the port, 2 minutes walk from the apartment. The train/buses drive along the coast road and get you to Collioures in about 15 minutes. They have open air compartments so you can enjoy the view. The return journey from Collioures to Port-Vendre takes a picturesque route through the hills and vineyards, past the Fort Saint-Elme, and back to the quayside at Port-Vendres (2 minutes from the apartment.

Argeles-sur-mer, with its beaches and entertainments are just 15 minutes (7 km) away by car.

Further Details:

Port-Vendres is a historic port which is still used today by local fishermen, private yachts and some industry. The fisherman deliver each morning's catch directly from the boats to stalls on the quayside for purchase.

Port-Vendres is not just for the holiday season - there is activity in the town all year round. Local shops include greengrocer, butcher, chemist, newsagent, bank, post office, wine merchant, as well as a regional fish and seafood market. There are a wide range of restaurants, all of which are within walking distance of the apartment.

During the Summer season the town usually arranges various attractions and entertainments. In 2014 these included live music in the town square, a vintage car show, an art exhibition, children's mini disco, jazz and classical concerts, and a circus. Once a week there is a local produce market. There is also an antiques market.

Boat trips are available from the quayside. These are available in many different formats: fishing trips, glass-bottomed boats for viewing sea-life, exploration of coves, and trips to nearby beaches, including Argeles-sur-mer.

It is a beautiful town which has inspired artists through the centuries. Charles Rennie Mackintosh stayed here in the early 20th Century, and there is a museum dedicated to his work here. There are some fabulous walks nearby incorporating hills, cliffs, vineyards, forts and varied countryside and wildlife.

From the Owner

We love the fact that the apartment is big enough for the whole family, and that we have our own dedicated parking space inside the building (especially during the Summer season, when the area is at its busiest). We also love that fact that the apartment is quiet, even though we are only two minutes walk from the boats in the port.
