About Remi Thackrey

Hello, bonjour and welcome! I grew up in Lancashire, UK and spent much of my adult life living in different countries around the world finally settling in the South of France in 2012. I am also a keen traveller and take every opportunity I get to explore new places. As such I have taken all the best features I have come across and tried to incorporate them into your experience of staying in one of our apartments.

I spend time with each of my clients when they arrive to help them plan what to do during their stay. This way they get the most out of their time here.

I work hard to make sure the whole experience is as good as possible. From the initial enquiry to the return home.

Remi Thackrey purchased this apartment in 2012

Why Remi Thackrey chose Collioure

PARKING! Anyone who has been to Collioure before will understand why this is so important. Each apartment has a place in the secure carpark.

Many people book to stay in the town centre only to learn that they need to park their car 20 minutes away. This is not so convenient for unloading shopping, kids or luggage.

There are 2 beaches in the residence and within 10 - 20 minutes walk you can be in Collioure or Port-Vendres. There is alo a supermarket within 3 minutes walk.

What makes this apartment unique

If I were to advise travellers here are a few things I would suggest:

Decide what is really important for you during your stay and contact the property manager to make sure that it is available. Remember, the property is only a part of the holiday experince and ask about other aspects. Feel free to call me or email, I don't bite.

Check the photos of the property and read the description properly.

Take advice from the property manager on what to do in the area. We have loads of local knowledge that can't be found on the internet.

TRAVEL INSURANCE, make sure you have it! Many things can go wrong, from illness to your holiday being cancelled. While these things are rare they could happen. At least this way you will be covered.

Try and be on time. I know from personal experience that delays are inevitable at sometimes, but please don't forget that there is someone who is waiting for you on your arrival.

Finally, if something isn't right during your stay, let the manager know while you are there. There really is nothing that can be done to improve your holiday once you have left.

I hope that you find this advice helpful. Let me know if there is anything you would add, but most of all enjoy your stay.

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 Carcasonne.

Great facilities and clean

Owner's Response: Glad you enjoyed yourself. It is true that some of the houses and apartments in the centre of town can be very noisy at night, especially during the summer when there is a lot of live music. El Nui is just far enough that you cannot hear the bands from the town. See you again next time.

Owner's Response: It was a real pleasure to spend time with you and your family. We were delighted to be invited to drinks and dinner with you and show you around our home town. Like you said to me, sometimes it pays to have someone local to show you some of the hidden gems. We will do it again when you return.

El Niu

  • 5 of 5

Had a fantastic week at El Niu, which has everything you need for a comfortable and relaxing stay. Superb location, with two gorgeous bays either side of the property for excellent snorkelling and swimming, and a short walk into either Collioure or Port Vendres for sightseeing and great restaurants.

No particular need for a hire car, but it is worth hiring one to explore this beautiful region. Remi is a mine of information on the area and can make some excellent recommendations depending on your interests. Only had a week, wish it was longer – will just have to come back!

Sea view, Quiet, Clean, Fantastic service

  • 5 of 5

The apartment has a great view over the sea. The apartment is actually bigger than it looks on the pictures. The only thing we missed was wine glasses which underlines that this is a very well equipped apartment with all you need to cook for meals etc. Big food store and car rental 2 minutes from the apartment. As our french is at best horrible it is worth mentioning that the contact-person Thackery renting out the flat speaks perfect english and really went the extra mile, and more, to ensure that we had a pleasant stay. Not only did he help out with aspects related to the apartment but also gave good tips on what to see in the area surrounding Collioure etc. The apartment is also equipped with a guide on various sites and restaurant tips in Port Vendres and Collioure.

Owner's Response: Thank you Anders for such kinds words. I must say it was a pleasure to spend time with you and your wife. We work very hard to make sure that the whole prcess of booking and your stay are as easy as possible. It is afterall your holiday. I know we laughed when there were only white wine glasses, so the next morning I added the redwine glasses and some pastis glasses. I think you would approve. I know we will see you again sometime. You would be very welcome back.
