7 people, 3 generations and 1 wonderful place! Here you have the ingredients for a perfect week of holidays in Port-Vendres. "Croix Blanche house" is very bright, clean and spacious. And conveniently located, only a footstep away from the harbour, in a quiet street. The kids were delighted to have a baby-foot AND a ping-pong table and a bathroom for each room. How could we ever leave this marvellous place?

Sue gave us a warm welcome. Thank you, Sue and Ian, for sharing this beautiful place with us. We already look forward to bring more family over there! There are so many more things to discover in this region! Ulrike & family from Toulouse

Excellent séjour en famille pour les fêtes de Noël !!!

Fantastic holiday in lovely clean spacious apartme

  • 5 of 5

My family and I (8 adults +1 baby) loved our stay. The apartment was clean, spacious, uncluttered and had everything we needed to be comfortable on our holiday. The owners were very friendly and even provided some fruit from their own garden when we met which was lovely! The apartment is ideally suited to access the shops and bars in the port and for walking. We would highly recommend the beach at Paulille which is a short drive away. We were all very sad to leave and have many happy memories of barbecues on the terrace. Thank you Susan and Ian for sharing your apartment with us.
