perfect location and apartment
The views from the apartment are just as shown, absolutely beautiful! The location is an easy walk from either Collioure or Port Vendre and there is a decent supermarket within 1/4 mile. The apartment is a good size for 2 people, well laid out and comfortable. Plenty of parking, which is a huge bonus when staying in Collioure. The agent, Remi, was very helpful with suggestions on places to go in the area and provided some great restaurant recommendations. We will definitely be coming back to the area and hope to stay in Alosa again. Many thanks!
We have just returned from the Alosa apartment and had a wonderful time.The apartment itself is excellent with stunning views of the sea. The beach is 30 seconds away and both Collioure and Port Vendres are within easy reach by foot. Remi is exceedingly helpful and nothing was too much trouble. I would wholeheartedly recommend Alosa and we will definitely return.
I am so glad you had a great time on our apartment. We would be delighted to see you again. Thank you also for leaving us a gift, it was much appreciated, it is always nice to be thanked for our efforts.
A beautifully decorated apt with stunning views
This apt has everything a group of friends or a family could ask for!! The apt complex has two private beaches that present the idyllic setting. It's also perfectly situated between Collioure and Port Vendre so you get the best of both worlds,Port Vendre- the traditional French fort town with superb fish restaurants and lots of charm and Collioure the picture post card Little French Coastal town with vibrant cafés and restaurants. My wife and I had a superb long weekend here and can't wait to come back. Thanks Remy for a lovely stay. Regards T&J
Thank you for the kind review, we would welcome you back any time, especially with how clean and tidy you left the place. Many of our guest comment on how this apartment is easy to keep clean and functions well. The view directly onto the beach is one of the main attractions of this apartment, as well as the parking space a rarity in Collioure. Merci and see you next time.
"A room with a view"!
The magnificient view was the first thing that struck us. From early morning with breakfast with croissants at the big table with the sliding dooors open, to the balcony to sunset when sipping rosé at the balcony; the sea and the view over Colloure harbour were always with us.
It´s a luxury to have beach just below your apartment. To let the kids stay and play in the water while you are tired of bathing or reading in the sun on the beach – and this on the crowded riviera with no parking spaces…
It was only 5-10 minutes walk to Port Vendre where you could get an excellent dinner with fresh fish and about 15-20 minutes walk to picturesque Collioure.
The apartment is small but convenient - very well equipped with oven, microwave oven, fridge, refrigerator, coffee maker, dish and washing machine, TV and DVD. The master bedroom has also a windom from floor to ceiling with the fantastic view, the other bedroom a bit small with a bunk bed and just a small window facing the yard. The kitchen also has a small balcony/room with a sliding door towards the beach excellent for drying bathing clothes and towels and also there you watch the sea while preparing dinner or washing up.
From the first contact on mail and during our whole stay Remi Thacker has been so kind and service-minded. A weeks stay at Alosa in Collioure is a vacation I really can recommend!

Fantasic vacation rental!
The location of this apartment was perfect. Literally metres away from the beach but also walking distance to both Collioure and Port Vendres. There is a supermarket a few minutes walk from the apartment and I can really recommend the Seafood bar at Port Vendres Fish market.
The apartment is newly furnished and modern and has everything you need.
Remi was extremely helpful with recommendations for restaurants and places to visit in the area.
We would definitely use this apartment again and cannot recommend it highly enough!
A jewel on the "Côte Vermeille" near Collioure
The Alosa appartment is a real jewel on the "Côte Vermeille" near Collioure. My Family and I spent a wonderful holidays in the very well equipped appartment and the property manager Remi did everthing to make our vacation very relaxing. We could ask for everything and got help all the time.
The View from the livingroom, the bedroom an the kitchen goes to the pictiorally bay and Collioure, and the house is directly situated on the beach where we spent marvelous times. The city of Port Vendres and Collioure can be reached by feet. I really enjoyed running across a small path along the rocky beach to Port Vendres in the morning when the sun is coming up, and I cought beautiful views on the blooming coastline and to the Pyrenees. We will definitely come back next season.
Really glad you enjoyed yourselves here. You are right, this apartment is special. I encourage all my guests to tell me what they would like to do while they are here so that I may help them get the maximum enjoyment out of their holiday. A little local knowledge can go a long way and I can't help them once they have gone home. You and your family were a delight to have around, I know we will see you again. Thank you for this review.
Collioure, is a beautiful,ancient and atmospheric town built around the medieval castle and port. Picasso, Matisse and Derain painted here. When you have experienced the quality of the light you will realise why. Visit the vineyards and taste the local wines. Stroll around the harbour and sit at one of the restaurants or cafes and enjoy the views, people watching and local artists at work. Visit the medieval castle. Soak up the history and the superb views from the battlements. Equally rewarding is a stroll around the harbour at Port Vendres which is a busy commercial, fishing and yacht harbour. A visit to the superb fish market is a must as are the restaurants. Port Vendres has been a busy harbour since 6BC. Motor boat trips are good or try a day out on the traditional sailing schooner Treguern including barbecue lunch and a swim in a secluded Spanish cove. Nearby includes:Cathar Castles, Dali Museums at Figueres and Cadaques, medieval Girona, Barcelona, medieval city of Carcasonn Other Activities: Art galleries, guided visits
