L’Origine is a place of calm amid the hustle and bustle of the busy (but not crowded) market/fishing town with its numerous cafes, restaurants, shops and attractions. The town, not far from Perpignan and 30 minutes from mainland Spain, is charming and the local people friendly and considerate, making it the ideal place for a relaxing but interesting holiday. The region is renowned for its colourful history, artists past and present, luscious citrus trees and cuisine. L’Origine, a traditional townhouse in beautiful Collioure, on the French Catalan coast, has been sympathetically converted into two separate apartments both appointed and equipped to the highest standards. The apartments have well proportioned bedrooms and bathrooms and light and airy open plan living areas allowing visitors freedom to enjoy a Mediterranean outdoor lifestyle choosing sunny spots to catch the best of the weather or shady areas for a quiet, post lunch, snooze. Larger family groups often let both apartments. Ample secure parking for both apartments.
As owners of L'Origine we aim to provide a relaxing, comfortable and charming home for holidays for you and your family.
Our cherished property is split into 2 separate apartments.
It is important to us to be able to provide ground floor accommodation that is suitable for those less mobile that encourages and enables those people to enjoy holidays in Collioure every bit as much as everyone else.
Nathalie purchased this apartment in 2007
L'Origine was transformed into two beautifully appointed apartments over 7 years ago with the dream to create the type of holiday home that me and my family would wish to use over and over again.
Collioure was always one of our favoured locations - the weather is delightful; the town is large enough to explore and is easy to get around, even for those with a disability.
An easy destination to reach by air with a variety of airports in both France and Spain, Collioure is a town that people love to return to again and again.
With a myriad of restaurants and cafes, exquisite fresh local produce, wine and seafood Collioure makes a great holiday destination.
Situated in a quiet street just off the market square, L'Origine is handy for shopping and restaurants and a short walk to the seafront. The apartments have on-site, off-street parking.
Whilst not everyone who stays in L'Origine 1, our downstairs apartment, has mobility problems it has been designed for wheelchair accessibility with extra wide doorways, low level switches, wet rooms and lots of internal and external space for you to enjoy.
The separate access, upstairs apartment provides totally independent accommodation - of course the two apartments can be booked together for large family group.
We’ll confirm your booking dates with a reference number and send invoice for deposit. Once we receive this we will send you an email to confirm your holiday booking.
The holiday balance is payable in full 6 weeks prior to your holiday.
A security deposit of 500Euros is payable prior to your arrival date.
Our standard changeover day is Saturday. However we try to be as flexible as possible so if this is not suitable please contact us.
This apartment was quite a find, so close to the centre of Collioure, yet with lots of outdoor space on the terrace. We had a particularly hot week so appreciated the shade on the terrace from about 10.30. The town beach is close enough to go for a morning swim and then pick up a baguette or croissant on the way back ready for breakfast on the terrace - perfect!
The accommodation is very comfortable, quite compact, but fine for 4 of us - it has 2 bathrooms and the bedrooms can be made up as doubles. We had worried about what the outlook from the terrace would be as there are flats behind the building, but it was very pleasant; just trees, gardens, rooves and one or two pretty french houses.
Natalie was very responsive when we were booking and we are particularly grateful to Andrew who came to water the plants and had been very helpful and friendly. I left my engagement ring in the apartment and he so kindly retrieved it for me and sent it safely back to England.
Collioure is beautiful, there was a market on a couple of days, catalan dancing in the square, lots of pretty little streets to explore, 2 town beaches and a third across the harbour and plenty of places to eat. We didn't use a car all week, theres a 1euro bus that takes you to neighbouring towns or the train goes to Perpignan and beyond.
We definitely hope to visit again.
