My family and I spent a very enjoyable few days in September in this delightful apartment in Montpelier. The city itself is wonderful and many of the attractions to visit are right in the centre, within a two minute walk of the apartment. The location in the rue Baudin is quiet and very convenient. The apartment is spacious and very well furnished and equipped. Everything a visitor could need is provided and, in our case, we were given the keys, taken into the flat, and given much information, by a helpful friend of the owner.. I can highly recommend this apartment for anyone visiting Montpellier, and I would certainly make another booking there in the future.
We had the pleasure of staying for 2 weeks in September, and the house was perfect! Very centrally located - 5 minute walk to the bustling town centre - but very peaceful and relaxing in the back garden. The house looks tiny from the front, but as soon as you go through the hallway, it opens out to a lovely open plan lounge and kitchen. Very airy and spacious feel.
The garden is lovely - big enough for us, with sun loungers, shady areas if needed, and the bbq and swimming pool were a real bonus.
The house was very well equipped - lovely kitchen. Bedrooms were perfect, and useful to have a small toilet upstairs for during the night, as well as the main bathroom downstairs. But do be careful as the stairs are quite steep!
Parking was no problem - the road is very narrow so you double-park outside when you first arrive to unload your luggage (the owners live next door and will meet you on arrival), and then just a 1-minute drive (and 3 minutes walk back) to a private parking space in the next road. This worked really well, and meant we didn't have to worry about where to park each day when we came back from a day out.
The nearest beach was 15 minutes drive - Plage du Grand Travers, with free parking. So wide with clear water and beautiful sand! We also discovered 3 others in the area (Carnon, l'Espiguette and Stes Maries de la Mer) which were equally as good. Lots of places to visit - Arles, Nimes, Sommieres (Saturday market), Aigues-Mortes - and we also did a 4x4 trip to the Camargue which was good fun!
Didier and Sandrine were the perfect hosts, made us feel welcome, and gave us lots of useful information about the house and area when we arrived.
