About Tone Dyran Smith
We are a family who lives in Norway. In 2006 we visited Collioure for the first time and discovered a small pitoresque fishermans village just like the well known fauvisme painters Matisse and Manet. Since then we spent all our summer holidays there. One day in 2013 when we were strolling around in the old narrow and charming streets we found a 300 year old fisherman cottage for sale and we fell in love with it and bought it. By then a renovation project started which lasted for approximately two years. The underlying importance for the work was safety for the children, light and open space. Stairway gates are certainly installed. A beautiful view to the sea and a lot of open space make the apartment attractive. An old fireplace is installed which is good to have in the chilly part of the year when the wind blows and the waves can be heard from the ocean near by. We have also discovered the adventure of hiking for shorter or longer distances overlooking winefields and maybe see and eagle fly against the blue sky. By this we would like our guests to have a pleasant stay in our apartment, so please do not hesitate to contact us if any questions.

Absolutely wonderful location
This is an outstanding house. So well designed with high quality furnishings and fittings. Wonderful views. Ideal location to wander the little streets of Collioure. Parking might be a challenge in August but was easy to find when we stayed.
Thank you , we love to hear that you enjoyed your stay
Welcome back !

Collioure, you charmed us.
The apartment was in a great location, a quiet set of walkways between authentic old, mostly stone apartment buildings, where both locals and holiday renters reside. Apart from holiday makers, we were living among the locals which gives the place authenticity and charm. The apartment was not even a minute from the beach front and had a view to the beach from the dining/living area and one of the bedrooms. Almost as important was the closeness to a very good Boulanger and close by are good eating places. The two bathrooms and two bedrooms were perfect for two couples or a family and the living area was a good size for the four of us. The mezzanine upstairs area would also great for another couple, because it has plenty of space and another double bed, while we used it as a work space for two of us who needed to work using the internet connection.
The kitchen facilities were excellent, we prepared most of our meals there and it was as easy to do as it is at home because of the good quality oven, stove top cooking, microwave and good sized fridge/freezer.
While it was very hot when we arrived, keeping windows open and bedroom fans kept us comfortable at night, but then it cooled to around 28 deg and simply having the windows open at night is sufficient. In winter there would be good heating with a firebox and electric heaters in all rooms as well.
The general location is a winner, the beach, the walks up through the local vineyards, the views from up in the hills, the closeness to Spain, this is a wonderful place for relaxation and also being able to work off the wonderful breads and pastries from the Boulanger
The only minor gripe was the cleaning was not as good as it should be and the door on the main bedroom would not shut properly. Tone and Henrik arrived soon after and gave the place a thorough clean (although we had cleaned it ourselves soon after we arrived), but the door not closing on the bedroom was annoying because it needed to be chocked shut and that was not very satisfactory.
But it has to be emphasised that we loved the apartment and the location, and if we visit Collioure again it would be our choice, and I am sure that Tone and Henrik, who were totally lovely people and very responsive to all our communications, will attend to the minor issue of the door not closing and will ensure the cleaner ups their quality.
Thank you so much for your positiv review of our house and the surroundings in Faubourg. It means much to us to receive reviews , good or bad to improve the facilities for our future guests.
We will surely attend to the door not closing.
Hope to see you back in rue Marceau!

Beautiful apartment in a beautiful town
We’ve just returned from a wonderful stay in Collioure. We loved the apartment. It is in the perfect area - quiet but still very close to the beaches, restaurants. And the apartment itself is beautiful. Really well equipped and very comfortable. Best of all - an amazing view. Five stars all round.
Thank you so much for your review. It is so good to hear that our guests are pleased with the apartment and the surroundings, it means a lot for us.
You are always welcome back!

In the best area of Collioure, very comfortable beds, well equipped kitchen. Perfect!
Situated in the best part of Collioure (away from the touristy spots), beautifully decorated, outstanding view on the sea, close to beach, excellent restaurants and bars à vin. We will surely return one day, but without a car (difficult and very pricy to park, even with bad weather at the beginning of June). Highly recommended!
Thank you for your kind words , and always welcome back!
Yes, parking in this popular small town is a challenge .
