Overview

About the property

Apartment: 2 bedrooms, 2 shower rooms, separate toilets, and equipped kitchen

The apartment is located in Ecusson, the historic centre of Montepellier. This apartment of 65 m² has been entirely reformed and can host 4 people in a centenary building. We appreciated the renovation, which respected the traditional architecture and the huge exposed beams in the living room. The view over the property is totally unobstructed. The apartment is located in a neighbourhood of Montpellier with the biggest number of sites and monuments that are all easily accessible on foot. On one side, the Arc de Triomphe, the royal square of Peyrou, and the botanic garden that was created upun request of Henri IV. On the other side, Saint Peter’s Cathedral, Canourgue Square, and Mikvé. Just next to it, you can find the Medical School and the Anatomy Museum, the Courthouse, and the City Hall. Foch Street, the place to go for high-class shopping, and Loge Street, both located two steps away, take you to Comedy Square that is still called « the egg » by the old citizens of Montpellier and to the vast Esplanade and Corum-Congress Centre and Opera. Twice a week, the Arceaux market will entertain those who love colours and the smells of midday. On Sundays, the exposition of antiques takes place at the royal square of Peyrou. The parking space that is located nearby allows you to enjoy all the tourist attractions of the area, as well as the beach, which is very close. Montpellier gives direct access to the sea with the beaches of Palavas and Grande Motte. In the east, you can visit Aigues Mortes and the Camargues with its salt plains and flamingos. In the west, you can go to Sète and the lake of Thau for tasting oysters. In the north, less than one hour away, you can visit the Cevennes region, whose valleys and villages are full of historic and religious heritage. You can also enjoy the famous Anduze bamboo grove. Wine enthusiasts cannot miss the wine producers, where you can taste Coteaux du Languedoc, Pic Saint-Loup, Faugères or Picpoul de Pinet.

About Combet Florence

I am a happy retired woman who loves art and spends most of her time organising cultural manifestations involving street art. I spend my time between the centre of Montpellier and Cevennes, which I like very much because of the beauty and the magnificent hiking trails that can be found there.

Combet Florence purchased this apartment in 2006

Why Combet Florence chose Montpellier

This apartment, which is located in the same building as the main residence, has been bought in order to host our children who live far away from us. When they are not here, this house is available as a holiday rental.

What makes this apartment unique

When we arrived in Montpellier 18 years ago, we literally fell in love with the neighbourhood where we live now. We decided to give a new life to these apartments that needed a reform, which we carried out respecting the authentic architecture.

Fantastic apartment in the heart of the historic quarter

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed for three nights in August 2017 and this really is an excellent base for a family of four.

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.

Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

We have spent a month in this apartment twice. The listing is very accurate, and the price more than reasonable. It is in an excellent location, just off the historic Place de la Canourgue. It is just within the medieval center, so everything there is within easy walking distance. The apartment is well appointed, clean and well maintained, with a kitchen, two bedrooms, and a bath. The boulangerie next door is one of the best in the city. There are many restaurants nearby-try especially L'Atypik, which is owned by the landlords' son. The owners are very friendly and helpful. The train station is about 10 minutes away on foot, and Place de la Comedie even closer. When the new tram line opens (July 2016), it will be even easier to get from the train station to the apartment. One thing to note-it is on the 4th (American) floor, 3rd (French) without an elevator.

Very comfortable

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Florence and Michel. The apartment was clean, comfortable, fully equipped and centrally located! The only negative for some people might be the many stairs to climb.

Authentiek appartement op top locatie

  • 5 of 5

Het appartement was nog beter dan we verwacht hadden. Het ligt in een aangename buurt met antiquairs, om de hoek een pleintje met veel groen en een vijftal terrasjes. Het uitzicht kan niet beter : je ziet hoe beneden het leven zich afspeelt op straat. Er valt veel licht en zon binnen en de inrichting is funktioneel. Het centrum is goed bereikbaar te voet of met de tram. 's Avonds was het soms wat fris en konden we de verwarming aanzetten. Mijn vriendin en ik hadden elk een eigen slaapkamer en we genoten van het interieur met de oude balken. We voelden ons er echt thuis. De eigenaars waren heel vriendelijk. We kunnen dit adres zeker aanbevelen.

Excellente location, très bien située dans Montpellier

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé une excellente semaine, le soleil et les températures élevées pour la saison y ayant certainement aussi contribué.

La location est très bien situé dans le centre de Montpellier. La prestation est conforme à l'annonce.

Les + : la situation, l'agencement, la luminosité, les literies (excellentes)

Le petit - : il manque un peu de vaisselle dont une essoreuse à salade

Wir waren sehr begeistert von der Wohnung, der Lage und den angenehmen u. unkomplizierten Vermietern

  • 5 of 5

Die Wohnung ist ideal für Familien bis zu 2 Kindern. Die Lage ist top. Alles zu Fuß erreichbar. Tolle Bäckerei direkt im Nachbargebäude. Gute Restaurants in der Straße. Sehenswürdigkeiten fußläufig erreichbar. Öffentliche Tiefgarage in 30 m bequem erreichbar. Schöne Cafés in unmittelbarer Nähe. Wir planen unseren nächsten Herbsturlaub wieder dort zu verbringen, das sagt doch alles, oder?
