Rue des Calanques home swap

Sitting on a ridge in the foothills of the Pyrenees, with spectacular 180 degree views of sea and mountains, is our recently built 86 sq m three-bedroom house with garage in a quiet modern terrace. A Lidl supermarket is within half a mile, or walk less than a mile to the town shops and market place. Port Vendres is a working port with fresh fish on sale daily. The coastal path runs nearby and there are numerous walks in the surrounding hills right out the front of the house. The area has attracted famous painters, and nearby Collioure has its own artists, lured by the outstanding sunsets and light. Sandy beaches and coastal attractions are a short drive away. ,
The nearest airport is Perpignan, but also Girona, Carcasonne and Beziers. The local railway station gives easy access to Spain and TGV links to France. There is a bus stop about half a mile away.

About the location

The region boasts more than 300 sunny days a year, and our experience bears this out. It is the single, biggest wine-producing region in the world. The landscape and light are stunning, and good for just sitting and looking. A car is not necessary as buses cost 1€ a trip and train rides in the region can also be purchased in advance for €1. The area is great for sports - mountain biking, walking, swimming, diving and sailing for example. If you prefer to sit more, the beaches are close by and the area has its own wines and many cafes and restaurants. With a car, the border with Spain is 20 km away and there are historic villages and towns to explore.
