We are always excited to share our Provence life with friends. Our experiences here are sweetened as friends learn about the region.
Tom and Elvira Gibbings joined us last week for six days. We had a ball! Having just completed a four-day Loire Valley bike tour, they were ready to relax, but when presented with the local degustation …
Started the day with breakfast on the patio at Le Bon Port, with the beautiful, sparkling Mediterranean as a backdrop. It was a bright, sunny day... not too hot, not too cold. Got an early start (for us) before 10:00am. Made the 10-minute climb up to the windmill without much difficulty. Paused for some photos, then on up further to Fort St. Elme …
The next morning we paid our bill (they prefer cash at La Sauzette, as do many European establishments), said goodbye to our new friends, and headed for the autoroute and the Mediterranean coast. Our plan was to drive east on the A-61 to Narbonne, then find a coastal route with a view. We made one stop in Perpignan to locate the train station, and …

How has this hotel rated in the past?
We stayed at Le Bon Port for two nights in September 2010. Our room was bright & clean, with a partial view of Collioure harbor. There is a nice continental breakfast (not included) served on the patio each morning, with the beautiful Mediterranean as a backdrop. The hotel is located a short walk from the town center, so there is easy access to shopping & restaurants. Parking is available behind the hotel. We were very pleased with our choice of this hotel.
There was a slight problem with our bill that I didn't notice until we got home. We had paid one night's stay in advance as a deposit. This was not deducted from our final bill. One quick email solved the issue. They were very prompt to respond, and refunded my money right away.
