Collioure

Collioure expresses its poetry through a palette of colors and lights, which has always inspired great artists such as Matisse, Derain, Chagall, Picasso or Duffy.

Collioure nestles in a little bay where the Royal Castle and the famous church tower reflect in its waters. Behind, the old village “Le Mouret” with its small narrow streets, leading to the discovery of its traditional Catalan homes that have kept their character and story along the years.

A sublime harmony between sea and mountains.
