Hi, I’m Remi Thackrey. I have been coming to the South of France since I was a child and I finally settled here in 2012. I rent out a range of properties in & around Collioure, France. Beaches, mountains and just 30 minutes from Spain, this is an excellent choice for couples and families. Originally from Lancashire, UK, I spent much of my adult life travelling & working in Africa and other parts of the globe, but with it's sunshine, great food and wonderful history, this place keeps drawing me back. .
