Collioure is one of those very rare things, a seaside village for all seasons. The village enjoys an average of 320 days of sunshine a year, mild winters and very little rain. What's more, the three thousand permanent residents mean that many of the shops, cafés and restaurants remain open all year. So why not take a break 'out of season' and discover the 'real' Collioure?
