Staying at the Le Mas des Citronniers hotel in Collioure is also a great way of enjoying the town’s rich heritage. The town is steeped in history and offers a unique ambiance - the Château Royal
Attracted by the town’s unique light, the initiators of Fauvism chose to live in Collioure and create their major works: Matisse, Derain, Terrus, Maillol… Their presence permeates the town. This artistic heritage is still to be found in the art galleries that give Collioure its worldwide reputation.
There’s plenty for active types both in the area around Collioure and in the Eastern Pyrenees as a whole. Hikes or walks, mountain biking, etc. Then there are water sports such as windsurfing, paddle-surfing, kitesurfing, jet skiing in the summer and scuba diving... or else you could simply lie back and enjoy Collioure’s beach. Then if you come to stay in the winter, you’ll be able to enjoy skiing , or go on walks, etc.
The amazing location of the Eastern Pyrenees guarantees a great holiday whether you come in summer or winter - there are 214 km (133 miles) of coastline (fine sand or rocky coves), 300 days of sunshine a year, plenty of local produce and the area inland offers a huge amount of culture and great items you can buy, and then the Spanish border is less than thirty minutes away from the hotel. There’s always something to do here in Catalan country!
