Make a holiday rental house or villa in Montpellier, France your home away from home

Located in the south of the Languedoc Rousillion, Montpellier is an important city. As the capital of the Herault department, Montpellier is home to some of the most interesting museums, best restaurants and finest shopping outlets in the south of France. Montpellier is one of France’s fastest growing cities, partially due to an enormous period of renovation which the city is going through. Montpellier is a youthful, Mediterranean city based around a vast central square surrounded by elegant buildings and lush gardens, just miles from the coast. There is plenty to see along Montpellier’s narrow streets and sunny squares which have lead to it becoming one of France’s most loved cities.

Over 40% of Montpellier’s native population is under 30 years old, which should give you some indication of the cities atmosphere and outlook. The nightlife is great fun and there is always something going on in the more crowded streets around the huge central square, the Place de la Comedie, whose image is dominated by the ornate Opera House, and comes alive daily during the hours of the morning market. The best places to go shopping in Montpellier are along the streets which come away from the Place de la Comedie.

The town is filled with beautiful gardens, and even boasts Europe’s oldest botanical gardens, the Jardin des Plantes.

The house has a beautiful new conservatory on it from which you can sit at the huge dining table and watch the sunrise (if you awake early enough). The house is fully stocked with everything you could need like washing machine, tons of crockery, drying rack for wet swimming costumes, towels and bedding. The swimming pool is heated now so I even ventured in without squealing in April as the weather was lovely. Plenty of wildlife to listen to and greenery all around the garden which has been restocked with a huge assortment of children's play equipment like a large netted trampoline and goal, swingball set, hammock, table tennis table etc. From the house we drove to the Intermarche most days for groceries or jogged into Assas for the bakery. The tram into Montpellier is also close by so we ventured into the town to go on segways as well as driving to Aigues-Mortes and the beach for day trips. The bedrooms are shuttered to keep out light and insects, and are comfortable and very clean. The lounge area is big enough for our family of 12 to all sit together comfortably on 3 sofas. I'm missing it already! Susanna S

Montpellier is a gem and this flat in a historic building allows for a full experience. Owner and manager are experienced and on their game. Highly recommended.
