About Martine Baudonnet

We opened this guest house when I decided to quit my previous job back in 2005. The house had been left without a soul for so many years that it was good and great fun to bring it back to life.

Why Martine Baudonnet chose Collioure

This was the family property of Henri Frère and his wife Raphaelle who were close friends to the famous french sculptor Aristide Maillol. Raphaelle, a great lady, who passed only a few years ago was the daughter of famour catalan poet Josep Sebastia Pons. Henri Frere used to paint and sculpt on the third floor of the house which is therefore named the artist studio. He had built a stage for his models on the largest terrace in order to get a better view of the Mediterranean. You'll find potteries, ceramics and paintings of his sons Daniel and Sébastien all through the house.

What makes this apartment unique

The house is located right in the heart of Collioure at a stone throw only from the main beach. Everything is within walking distance and cars are really not necessary unless you want to get away from the village. Relax and enjoy the jewel of the Côte Vermeille for a few days, make yourself at home and feel the pulse of Collioure. This is a city about light and colours which has remained pretty much the same since 1905.

Guestbook comments from the owner

date of arrival : April 2012:

The listing description was accurate regarding the location, layout and facilities : the apartment is extremely pleasant and well located in the centre of Collioure, next to the beach, the monuments, the shops, bars and restaurants. You can leave your car in the garage and just walk around and enjoy the holiday

The owner is very nice and helpful. She welcomes you, shows you round.

The flat itself is clean, big, beautiful and well maintained. You can find everything you need in the kitchen if you like cooking.

I particularly enjoyed the big bedroom on the top floor with the big terrace. You can lie in the sun, read books, relax there. The flat is inspiring and has a charm of its own. I went there in April so life was very quiet there...I highly recommend it

There is no need to describe Collioure : ancient fishing village, the spot was picked by numerous artists and painters such as Matisse, Derain or Picasso in search of true colours, sunlight and good friends. Collioure remains a very busy touristic place in the summer season (July - August) so calm lovers will particularly enjoy coming down from September till the end of June (the house is open all year long and is equipped with a very good central heating system and a real fire-place). Wine tasting almost everywhere, terrace shaped vineyards, good food and jazz band playing every Friday on the main square. Try la Criée in Por-Vendres for sea-food and the 5ème Péché in Collioure for its perfect world fusion style with the perfect wine to go along.

Other Activities: Art museums, shopping

A lovely house, full of character and in the heart of an enchanting town.

  • 5 of 5

There is so much to do in Collioure; walking, swimming and generally loafing about, and the property is in the heart of it all. We were made to feel very welcome by Martine and particularly appreciated the wealth of information provided about the area. The apartment is comfortable and spacious and well equipped. We would recommend it to anyone and hope to return very soon.

A great family time in Collioure.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent two weeks at Maison Frere in early June. One week was spent with our son, his wife, and their three daughters (ages 15. 11, and 8) and the second week was spent with our daughter, her husband, and their two daughters (ages 11 and 7). The apartment was perfect. Collioure was perfect. Madame Martine was extremely helpful and charming. We will definitely come again even if it is only the two of us and we use one of the smaller apartments. There was a wonderful variety of engaging restaurants from very simple to very nice. It was enjoyable to wander the environs of the village. We had visited Collioure twice before on day trips in the past and we really wanted to stay there. There are so many wonderful areas to visit within an hour or so drive that you will have much to keep you busy for multiple visits. The only thing we did not enjoy was trying to make our way in, around, or through Perpignan.

Great stay in Collioure

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed in this spacious duplex in April 2015 and had a wonderful stay. The location was fabulous, close to restaurants, beach and shops, yet very quiet at night.

On several days, we took trips around the area, but never found a more beautiful village than Collioure!

We walked/hiked around the area almost every day, which was wonderful.

Already planning to return as soon as we can!

Thank you, Martine

Great holiday apartment

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful apartment right in the centre of Collioure. It felt like a real home from home with everything you could possibly need and more. The two terraces on the top floor are brilliant. And the use of the garage was a real bonus as parking is a nightmare in Collioure! Martine is a wonderful and welcoming hostess. We will definately be going back.
