Geography, history and art of living, three fairies have looked at the cradle of Collioure! It is a small Catalan port today known throughout the world for the beauty of its landscapes, its architectural heritage and its sweetness of life. There are many French and foreigners alike who dream of settling in Collioure or having a pied-à-terre there. But what good are they looking for primarily? Real estate reference of the sector, the
real estate agency Collioure
Paradise enlighten us.
Where ? In the heart of the city of course!
A fishing village nestled at the bottom of its bay and clinging to the first Pyrenean slopes, Collioure offers a magnificent living environment. By its initial vocation, the town is formed from the quays of the port to the heights. This organization breaks down the real estate offer into three main categories:
- Fishermen's houses and the city center;
- Residences from the 60s or 70s in the outskirts;
- Individual houses and prestigious villas in the hinterland.
Preserved by buildings dedicated to mass tourism, its town center, made up of two or three-storey houses, seduces with its authenticity. The colorful facades of the small Catalan port lean over winding streets and cozy squares.
Even if you want to invest in Collioure (count 4,100 euros/m² for an apartment and 4,600 euros/m² for a house), the vast majority of buyers want to take advantage of this city center. It is therefore towards fishermen's houses and townhouses that demand is primarily concentrated.
What type of accommodation? The fisherman's house or the F3 with terrace!
The two or three floors of the houses in the port or the town center of Collioure are made up of platforms rarely exceeding 50 m². On the port, the fishermen's houses are particularly sought after for their privileged location.
Their living area of around 60 m² offers most of the time a living room and two bedrooms, or three rooms: a rare property for sale and therefore quite expensive! Count at least 5,000 euros / m² for these houses leaning over one of the most beautiful ports in the Mediterranean.
Behind the latter, the houses in the heart of the city are now organized into small condominiums with one unit per floor. The surface offered by each tray allows the development of a 3-room apartment (living room and two separate bedrooms) modest in size, but very pleasant due to its location close to all amenities and in the heart of the Catalan atmosphere of the village. .
These are accessible apartments from 200,000 euros and can exceed 350,000 euros when they have a sea view or a terrace. This is a price segment that corresponds to the 294,000 euros spent on average in France by investors for the purchase of their second home. By nature, these apartments do not offer a parking space or garage in a pedestrianized historic center. This drawback is nevertheless offset by the presence of an SNCF station which connects the small Catalan port to the French rail network.
Box: Collioure SNCF station
Located in avenue Aristide Maillol 400 meters from the city center, the Collioure SNCF station welcomes TER and Intercités. Unmissable station on the Narbonne-Port Bou line, it allows you to comfortably reach Paris in 6 or 7 hours.
Why ? Simply ideal!
It is estimated that homeowners enjoy their second home for an average of 35 days. With its two bedrooms, the fisherman's house or theF3 apartment
allows you to share your vacation with family or friends. Without any particular maintenance, unlike a house or a villa with a garden or even a swimming pool, the fisherman's house or apartment option stands out as the perfect second home for an owner by definition little present!
Even better, the fisherman's house or the F3 apartment can, at the time of retirement, offer sufficient living space to become the main residence for pleasant old age under the Catalan sun. Buying a fisherman's house
or a three-bedroom apartment in the heart of the town of Collioure is also an excellent investment in the seasonal rental market.
A fisherman's house or a F3 can easily be rented all year round, given the attractiveness of the pearl of the Côte Vermeille, especially when its rental management is provided on site by an experienced real estate agent.
