Quintessential Collioure To Cadaques

Mediterranean Coast

Departure date : 06/05/2019
Firstly, we loved the walk - we did find some sections quite strenuous but we are a couple over 65 years old but we managed ok.
Booking: the only problem was payment online, which you sorted for us.
Transport of bags worked seamlessly.
Hotels:
Hotel Playa Sol was outstanding in Cadaques.
All hotels were welcoming.
Least preferred was Les Elmes. We would have preferred to be in the village itself choosing our own meal rather than the formula meal at the hotel. All the other meals were all good local food with well priced good quality local wines.

Route:
The instructions were clear, easy to follow except the last hour of the last day where the gate across the path & subsequent fork in the path were not mentioned in the notes, but we worked out where to go eventually.
We did not use or need GPS - the directions were clear & accurate.
Poles were invaluable.

Collioure & Cadaques were stunningly beautiful villages. We highly recommend a full day at both places & doing the artists' walk following the map in Collioure.
The circular walk to the lighthouse in Cadaques was a lovely extra day walk.
On day 2, we chose the coastal route, which was beautiful along the waters' edge which we had not expected. We therefore had a good mix of mountain walking with stunning views plus coastal path.
Early May was perfect walking weather - cool mornings 10 degrees, days to 18-20, no rain.

We strongly recommend the walk - good value, great scenery in a beautiful unspoilt area.

Thank you very much and we look forward to another walk with you in the future.
