Overview

The small port town of Collioure A tiny chapel on the rock, a picturesque fortified church and the mighty Château Royal are the first sights to greet you as you approach this small port from the sea. Collioure is a textbook example of a charming fishing village that has always attracted painters and poets thanks to its idyllic coastal location, colourful facades and fascinating light. Little Venice in Languedoc: Sète To one side the blue of the lagoon, as smooth as glass, and the Mediterranean Sea opposite: Sète has found itself a comfortable spot by the water. With its colourful facades, canals and bridges, the little port is considered the “Venice of Languedoc”. Strolling through the lively “Vieux Port”, the old harbour, will whet your appetite for specialities like fresh oysters or Tielle, an octopus pie. Saint-Paul-de-Vence, a village full of art Small galleries, cafés and artists’ studios framed by vine-covered walls from the 13th century – Saint-Paul-deVence is a paradise for art lovers and romantics. In contrast to the charming medieval flair of this quaint mountain village, the museum of the Maeght Foundation presents modern masterpieces by renowned artists including Chagall, Miró, Giacometti, and others.
