The newly fitted bathroom is small but perfectly formed with a shower, sink and toilet. The ample living room has plenty of comfortable seating and a large dining suite.

This is an ideal rental for a family, couples and small groups. The neighbours are very friendly with young children in this quiet family building, so this is not a flat for late-night action! We are open to a reduction of the additional guest rate for children.
Sheets and towels are provided. There are fans for the hot summers.
Whilst the flat doesn't have wifi access organised for August, we will be resolving this for September. There are, however, numerous local spots which offer free wifi, including the tourist office near Place de la Comedie - the closest being the local supermarket a minute's walk away on Gambetta.
You will be met on arrival by friend who lives locally who will give you two sets of keys and check that you are happily settled in.
This light, spacious (45m2) two bedroom apartment is ideally situated only two minutes walk from the historic centre of Montpellier and ten from the main stations. The tram is literally around the corner. The neighbourhood sets you firmly between a bustling, local scene and the chic and unusual shops of the Medieval centre.
All the amenities of a French city are at your fingertips with a delicious local bakery as standard. Round the corner you will also find a patisserie, a charcuterie and a supermarket amongst a range of other shops. Venture into the centre and you will find a daily flower market, beautiful squares and allees, fantastic restaurants (look out for set menus which offer great value for money) and all sorts of street entertainment in the place de la Comedie most evenings. Montpellier is great whether you are on a budget or not, with the opera, museums, cinemas, an Olympic swimming pool and the oldest botanical gardens in France amongst many other attractions.
Montpellier has an airport, but you might also find it convenient to use Beziers, Carcassone, Marseilles, Toulouse, Nantes or Perpignan as they have good train connections to Montpellier-Gare St Roch.
A taxi from Montpellier airport should cost approx 30 euros or you can take the shuttle bus to the train station for 8 euros.
Check out (website hidden) for more information on trains, distances and prices. Booking in advance can save you cash (be aware that regional trains are cheaper than TGV trains). You also need to validate your ticket after purchase to use it on the trains – this is done by putting the slim end of your ticket into one of the yellow machine in the station.
Once you arrive in Montpellier via the A9 (toll road) or A750 (free), or one of the smaller D roads, follow signs for 'Gambetta' parking. The car park 'Gambetta' is well signposted throughout Montpellier.
There is no parking directly outside the apartment, however, 'Gambetta' car park, below the Boulevard Gambetta, is less than a minute's walk from the flat if you take the pedestrian exit 'Andre Michel'.

Whether you want to hire a car and drive out into the countryside to take a wine tour, enjoy city life or visit various beaches, it is all here. The tram to Perols is just on the corner where a transfer bus will deliver you to a relaxed and family orientated beach. Total journey time is only 45 minutes from the flat.
you will have the appartment to yourself !
Interaction with Guests
I am hère for one week to let it so will meet you and show you how it all works ! Easy to find our street is tiny ..
It's so traditional old world French with all the small local shops, restaurants and bakeries, at the same time it is right on the edge of the pedestrian centre of the town with all the beautiful alleys and streets squares and fountains.
all three tramlines are right beside you with the tram for the beach literally on our corner
Its ten minutes walk from the train station, Gare St Roch and the 3 tram lines pass by the apartment. If you want to do local trips by coach or train both stations are ten minutes walk away, and there are great deal all summer.
Other Things to Note
the kitchen is ready for cooking some delicious meals, all the towels and sheets are supplied . The shops bakery and market are five minutes away and its ten minutes walk to the central Place de la Comedie.
You are asked to respect the NON smoking rule in the apartment, to leave it clean and tidy as you found it and to be quiet indoors after 11pm . Our neighbours have young children and tend to go to bed early. (There is plenty happening in town and in the Place de la Comedie if you want to be out late!)
The most important rule is to ENJOY Montpellier, it is very special, beautiful place and you are in the middle of it!
Malgré notre arrivée tardive, Norah a fait tout le nécessaire pour que nous puissions nous installer dans de bonnes conditions. Appartement sympa (voisins sympas aussi) et bien placé tout près du centre-ville.
Norah was really helpful and gave great local advice, the apartment is very close to the centre and included a good selection of basics which left it easy for us to cook. There's a supermarket at the end of the street too on gambetta which helped.
The apartment is quaint and comfortable and very much as advertised. Norah's cousin Laura greeted us and made us feel completely at home and taken care of. Would definitely return!
nous avons passé une semaine merveilleuse.
La maison est très confortable et pratique dans le centre-ville.
Montpellier est une ville pleine de vie.
Le seul défaut de la maison est l'escalier à ciocciola très attrayant, mais réellement mal à l'aise lorsque vous devez déplacer les valises.
Pour le reste, tout droit.
Un grand merci à Laura.
L'appartement est superbe pour une famille, elle a une tres belle design. Les escaliers pour monter au premier etage sont un peu etroit et tres abrupt, je crois que ca pourrait faire des problèmes aux hommes avec des difficultés de monter des escaliers. Autrement top, très sympa.
I stayed at Norah's property last June with 3 of my friends. The place was absolutely lovely and we fell in love straight away. We were met at the property and given a tour before the keys were handed over. Norah was incredibly helpful and answered all of our questions.
Great location - just a few minutes walk into the very heart of Montpellier and the tram line is literally round the corner if you want to catch it for a day at the beach.
The stay was wonderful and we would love to return.
Sorry it's taken me so long to review Norah!
L'appartement de Norah est très bien placé, à proximité du centre ville. Nous avons tout fait à pied. Ses deux balcons sur la rue calme nous plonge dans l'ambiance de la ville du Sud.
Parfait pour un séjour à 4 !
