Jacinta Mc Glynn (Senior Reporter Travelbiz) joined the delightful Dominique Fabre (Tourist Office Collioure) and Hannah Holmes (Agence BeAble 2) in One Pico in Dublin to celebrate the allure of Collioure. A tiny city, located on the south eastern coast of France (only 15 miles from the Spanish border!), is the divine holiday destination that awaits your pleasure.

 

A place where time stands still, Collioure fronts the Mediterranean and has secret coves, ancient castles, Cloisters, a 14th century windmill, art galleries and a museum of modern art. Relaxation, the outdoors and the love of art and colour draw visitors each year to this little corner of heaven. Collioure inspired acclaimed artists such as Henri Matisse (a founder of Fauvism), Picasso, Derain, Dufy and Chagall and the meandering streets are crammed full of galleries and brightly coloured houses. Local vineyards and fresh fish from the sea mean Colllioure is a gastronomic paradise too. Incredibly, Collioure is situated in Catalonia, but is nonetheless truly French! Picture postcard pretty, Collioure could feature on a chocolate box. With the introduction of Aer Lingus 4 times weekly flight to Perpignan just 30 minutes away, (mid-May to September), Collioure is calling!
