Getting Here

One of the reasons we bought the property in Collioure (in addition to the charm and climate) was because it has communications by road, rail and air with the United Kingdom.

By road, it is approximately 1000km (600m) from Le Havre, or 1250km (750m) from Calais. The journey to Collioure can take approximately 14 hours to drive.

By air, there are several alternatives. Perpignan is the nearest airport and approximately 30 minutes from Collioure by road. Ryanair are now offering flights from Stansted to Perpignan, available sometimes at very low prices.

Ryanair are not flying from Stansted to Perpignan until Sat 2 Aug. As our Bookings are from Sat to Sat we reccomend the following routes to Collioure.

  • Rynair Stanstead to Girona starts on Sat 19th April to 25th Oct
  • Ryanair to Carcasonne flys all year
  • Flybe from Southampton flys on Sats from 24th May to mid Sept
  • Easyjet flys from Gatwick to Montpelier then train to Collioure

There are direct scheduled flights to Toulouse or Barcelona, at which car hire is readily available. The drive from these airports to Collioure takes approximately two and a half hours. Flights are also available to Gerona (about 50 miles from Collioure), a journey of one hour.
