We had a great stay at Sophie's, the location is superb a short walk from the market and close to all of the little side street bars. Great time.

Great apartment in Montpellier in excellent position

5 of 5
We had 4 days in this apartment. We were over an hour late to arrive because of a delay in our plane but Guillaume waited for us in the apartment and came out to greet us and direct us into the car park. He was extremely helpful and showed us everything in the flat and gave us advice on shopping, restaurants etc. The flat was immaculate and had everything we could need. The bed was extremely comfortable and the curtains provided very good blackout. There was no noise and we slept very well. The lounge was very good and there was a large TV with numerous satellite channels (a bit limited in English to news but fine as we had little time to watch TV). It is in an excellent position with walks to one side taking you to the river and some restaurants (we did not use these as they were chains and looked uninteresting) and on the other taking you to the centre of this beautiful city (about 15 minutes at a gentle pace). There were some excellent restaurants within a short walk which we enjoyed. Parking was under the block of flats and was a bit tricky to access until you got used to it. Overall this is an excellent apartment to use if visiting Montpellier.
