Montpellier is a fast developing city and this is a beautiful oasis on the outside edges. Benedicte and Bernard are a charming couple who made us feel very welcome and there was nothing we could have wished for that was not provided for us. We had hired a car which we used for day trips to Carcassonne, Aigues-Mortes (my favourite) Arles, La Grande Motte etc...but the tram links into Montpellier old town are superb and cheap and we used this several times. There are plenty of restaurants within walking distance but a vast selection in the old town too. It is altogether a fantastic location to go just about anywhere in the region. The nearest beach, Palavas les Flots was just 15 minutes by car and very well worth while visiting with it's beautiful lengthy sandy beaches but be prepared for laying on the sand as sunbeds are 15 Euros per person per day.... we soon adjusted! A fantastic choice for us as a couple, we could not have wanted more and our hosts were just lovely. Anka the dog was a close companion at the apartment too...ps she likes sausages!!

The apartment is beautiful- old beams feature in the living area and there's the sweetest little window in the ensuite shower. It's within easy reach of many restaurants and historic sites. Highly recommended and the owner was friendly and helpful. A great place to stay.
