This is a tiny little flat but with everything we needed. A beautiful town and ideal situation. Would return to Port Vendres. We loved our stay.

We really enjoyed our few days in Ted's lovely, clean, well equipped studio- so disappointed it wasn't available for longer! Perfect location-little beach within walking distance, 5mins walk to bars/restaurants ,and 2 mins to bus stop for coastal bus as far as Perpignan for €1 !! Ted has compiled a very detail folder with lots of info about the local area and amenities- including various walks from the studio. He was also readily available by text/ phone to answer any queries and most helpful contacting us immediately to let us know we had left a couple of things in the studio! Thank you for a very enjoyable few days I'm sure we'll be back!

This is a pleasant studio, well equipped and planned and with a sense of generosity in how it is shared and the amount of information provided. The location is convenient and it is indeed an easy walk to Collioures and to get about more widely by bus, very nice to return to the relative quiet of Port Vendres. Ted communicated openly and responded helpfully to enquiries. I felt that not providing bath towels is something to review as most airbnb hosts seem to provide them and so it doesn't work well for people travelling from place to place. It was distressing that Ted's cleaner suggested the place had not been left in good condition and luckily the very detailed photos I could supply evidencing the contrary along with Teds fair judgement sorted out this issue quickly, although it would now deter me from returning. In any case thanks to Ted for the sharing of this little home.

Response from Ted:
We thought the conflict of views over the cleaning had been resolved privately and amicably and are disappointed that Usha felt the need to say more. With respect, the fact that we do not provide towels is clearly stated in our information on the airbnb website and repeated in the letter sent to clients before they arrive.

We can honestly say that the apartment was equipped to a standard that we could only just have matched at home. Ted was a wonderful host and his neighbours were also equally friendly! we loved the place and will consider coming back and recommending it to our friends!

We enjoyed a lovely three nights at Ted's Place. The apartment is comfortable, cosy and has everything you need. It is centrally located and in walking distance to cafes, restaurants and supermarkets. Ted has prepared very clear instructions to help make your visit enjoyable. There are detailed folders with information about the apartment, eating out, the area and the walks available. We would encourage you to explore these. Ted is a very efficient communicator and quick to respond to messages. The wifi is great and there are lots of books on the shelf to browse. The space is beautifully decorated and includes some fabulous art done by Ted. If you are looking for a quiet and comfortable stay in a lovely coastal region, this is the perfect place. Thanks Ted!

A lovely autumn break in the busy fishing village of Port Vendres. A real working fishing port with fishermen cleaning their nets on the quay. The flat was perfect for two people, very central and all elements corresponded to the description. Easy access and parking and no problem. We didn't get to meet Ted but had his number (and a French contact) in case of any problem. With lots of places still to visit, we will be back in Port Vendres!

I am a retired medical doctor and my wife Kate, nurse from the UK. Now I have moved into the life of a semi-professional artist, specialising in oil painting and figurine sculpting. Our home in Port Vendres is brightened by many of my paintings on the walls. We love walking the hills and coastline of this magnificent countryside.

Please contact us in case you have any questions or need more information on the property.

English is my native language but can get by in French, if spoken slowly. I can read written French with relative ease.
