The Space

Appartement-Loft de 45 m2 avec mezzanine de couchage de 10 m2, entièrement rénové en 2010 par architecte, mêlant le charme de l'ancien (pierres apparentes, poutres) - et le style contemporain (mobilier, aménagement).
Au 3e étage, traversant, l'appartement est très lumineux, orientation est et ouest, 4 grandes fenêtres.

Idéalement situé, au coeur du centre historique de Montpellier, dans le quartier de l'Ecusson, à deux pas du Jardin du Peyrou et de la place de la Canourgue.
Proximité des tramways, 10mn de la gare et 5mn de la place de la Comédie et du Musée Fabre.
Quartier historique et vivant avec commerces, marché, restaurants. Rue calme sans terrasses de bar...

L'appartement comprend un grand espace ouvert, salon avec canapé 3 places non convertible, bureau, mini-chaîne, cuisine équipée ouverte sur le salon (plaques, réfrigérateur-congélateur, four, lave-vaisselle), une mezzanine avec lit 2 places (140x200) et une salle de bain avec baignoire à l'ancienne, lave-linge, wc.
L'appartement comprend une chambre supplémentaire non accessible à la location (et non utilisée lors de la location).

Le linge de lit est fourni (mais pas les serviettes de toilette). Fer à repasser et sèche-cheveux disponibles.
Internet wifi.
Un ménage complet doit être fait avant de quitter l'appartement. L'état des lieux se fait à la remise des clés.

Vous pouvez me contacter pour toute question.
Je vous souhaite un bon séjour !

  • Great neighborhood in the center of the city really close to St. Anne's. Friendly neighbors at all of the nearby shops. Christine always responded quickly when I had any questions. The apartment worked perfectly for my short visit to Montpellier!

  • Sehr liebevoll und geschmackvoll eingerichtetes helles Loft mitten im Herzen von Montpellier. Wir haben uns rundum wohl gefühlt und kommen gerne wieder! Die Kommunikation mit Christine u. Hélène war sehr unkompliziert und zuverlässig.

  • Super nice appartement, right in the middle of the city. Easy contact, friendly!

    Downside: You need to clean it yourself, but this is not a big deal.

  • The apartment and neighbourhood are very nice, but my stay was ruined by dealings with the host, who was extremely unwelcoming, unhelpful, and unpleasant to deal with - completely at odds with the Airbnb spirit. This could have cost me €438 for a locksmith callout, except that Airbnb accepted my claim and reimbursed me.

    On the last day of my stay, the key broke in the lock of the apartment door. When I called the owner via her assistant, she was extremely confrontational, assuming that it was my fault, and treating me like a criminal. She arranged for a locksmith to come, and I was told it would cost €135. I was presented with a bill for €438 - a very substantial cost.

    I had French speaking friends negotiating with both the locksmith and the owner (on the phone in Paris). She refused to consider even sharing the cost, and insisted I had to pay, while the locksmith became upset and angry. It was an extremely unpleasant situation, and to resolve it I had no choice but pay the money.

    This amount was later fully refunded by Airbnb, which says to me that Airbnb accepts that I was not at fault, and it was not reasonable to expect me to pay this cost.

    Also worth noting:

    * The owner does not provide towels. Ridiculous! Who travels with a towel, when sheets are provided.

    * The owner expects you to perform a full clean, though this is not clear from the website.

    * I had to wait an unreasonable time before checking in. My plane arrived at 230pm /1430h, so I requested that the owner's assistant meet me with the key at 3pm/1500h. She said the earliest possible was 430pm/1630h and was this OK. I said no. She said I had not given enough notice - 6 days. I think that when paying market rates, then it is reasonable to expect better service.

    * Finally: the ceiling of the loft bedroom is only 140cm high, which is not clearly stated on the website. So expect to be bent over the whole time, or be prepared to hit your head on the beams a lot.

    Response from Christine:

    I don't recommend this guest !!! Harley is an irresponsible and aggressive person. He brook the key of the apartment in the lock but didn't tell me and let the apartment unlocked in the evening and all day long. He called me later only because he left the second key of the house door inside and couldn't come in... The apartment and the neighbors apartments could have been stolen or damaged. We need some confidence for our guests on airbnb ! In France like in other countries, when you cause damages, you have to pay it. Otherwise everybody has an insurance for all the damages he could cause on persons or materials (personal assurance or travel and credit card assurance)... Airbnb was also uncomfortable with all the agressive private messages Harley sent to me and don't recommend this guest...

  • Nous avons passé un excellent séjour à Montpellier! L'appartement de Christine est absolument magnifique, une perle de l'architecture d'intérieur, et superbien situé dans le centre historique de la ville! Nous nous sommes immédiatement sentis comme chez nous, et avons bien dormi grâce au calme de la ruelle. L'appartement est lumineux, très bien décoré, fonctionnel et très agréable en général. À deux pas de l'appartement on retrouve boulangeries, supermarché, fromager, le vieux marché couvert,...et à dix minutes à pied on arrive à la gare. Nous recommandons vivement cet appartement, à celles et ceux qui souhaitent vivre une véritable expérience montpelliéraine!
