I found a firm - Argeles Tourisme Voyage - that does coach trips picking up in Collioure - but unfortunately they all start incredibly early in the morning - like before 7am! ..... so if you're friendly & would like to share taxi costs for an excursion somewhere during the last week of September, pl...

Thank you, Martyn. However, I think at 70+ we need the taxi from the airport to the station more than the bus lol. Also, the train we are hopefully due to catch from Perpignan to Collioure is the last train for some time so we would prefer to avoid time spent buying tickets - particularly if, as bef...

All of those things float our boat, Gus - thank you! We are into most things of a cultural/historic/local people/interesting/unusual nature - I guess almost anything except sport or high opera lol. The one thing I would like to do is take Le Petit Train Jaune, but I think it depends on whether anybo...

Thanks everybody!

I'm not sure how keen we are taking the bus between Perpignan airport & railway station because of getting our luggage on and off a bus?

Thank you all - We went to Collioure back in 2016 and love it!

..... unfortunately, our languages aren't good enough for a tour in French or Catalan - we went to Lyon a while back and a local English-speaking city guide took us around for the day, and it was wonderful and made the trip!

Collioure Boat Trip

There is a big red and white catamaran that I have seen come into Collioure under sail a few times last month. We just got back to Collioure last night so do not know if it is still operating, but they do have a kiosk on Colliioure end of the harbour front in Port Vendres. Thank you Richard ..... C...

I have seen this boat many times (and there are others) but never seen any of them under sail. Perhaps they put the sails down before arriving, and put them up after leaving. If you do literally want to travel under sail, I would check: their outings are not given away. If you want to sail somethin...

Collioure Boat Trip Etc.

When we're on holiday in Collioure for a week shortly, we'd love to take a sailing cruise out for an hour or so.

Any suggestions as to the best way of doing this please?

Thanks!

Holidaying in Collioure 17-24 Sep '16 & Want To Mix!

We're going to be in Collioure from 17-24 September this year and would love to be able to meet/mix with people somehow, even if only for a few hours - we went to Lyon for a few days in July and had a lovely day with a local lady as part of their city greeter programme. Our French is enthusiastic wi...

Perpignan Airport <> Collioure Sept 2016

Thank you both, Martyn and Nomad! I think what I've decided as the easiest solution at reasonable cost and speed is to take a taxi from the airport to the railway station and then at the other end to walk from the station to our hotel. It's a pity there isn't a shuttle going from the airport directl...
