Calm central flat with roof terrace

Apartment - Entire home/apt · Rue de la Vieille Intendance, Montpellier, Languedoc-Roussillon 34000, France

The Space

Delightful apartment right in the centre of the Ecusson (the heart of Montpellier). It is in a small period building on the second floor very near the Prefecture and the Arc de Triomphe. The apartment was extensively modernised two years ago and has both air conditioning and heating. There is a reasonable size roof terrace overlooking the cathedral and rooftops. The area is very quiet.

The Ecusson area is basically pedestrianised and so very little - if any - traffic. Montpellier has an excellent public transport system as well as a well organised bike hire network over the whole city.

There is a wide range of restaurants and plenty of cafes and bars close by - and all the shops are within easy walking distance. There is a great street market on a Saturday morning within 200 yards.

  • All through the booking process and our stay, Geoff and Adel were very accomodating, helpful and friendly. The appartment is beautiful and charmant, full of interesting details, and corresponds well the pictures. The bed was very comfortable. The location is great in the city center. Unfortunately the weather was a bit cold during our stay so we were not able to fully enjoy the cosy terrace and even inside it was a bit chilly. There were heaters available though for warming the place up. I warmly recommend this appartment!

  • Our stay in Geoff's flat was really nice. His friend Adel met us near the train station and we had a pleasant walk to the flat through town while he filled us in on good places to eat and visit. Geoff's home is comfortable, stylish and perfectly situated to walk everywhere in the city. But you might not want to leave once you are settled on the deck with your coffee or a glass of wine. If you do go out - there are lots of shops and restaurants in the immediate nieghborhood, and just a few blocks away is a great fresh market, and a really nice Monoprix just beyond that. We've stayed at dozens of airbnb apartments and this one is a favorite.

  • Geoff was the one who answered immediately to my question, so we decided for his flat. Good choice! The reception by friendly Adel was perfectly organized, the flat exactly like shown in the pictures, furnished with taste and hospitality. We stayed one week which was more winterly than expected, so we appriciated a home with heating and kitchen. The flat is an absolutely calm place in a busy pedestrian zone. Bars, restaurants, shops etc. are in distance of a few steps. I regret that the outside temperatures did not allow to rest on the veranda with beautiful view to old roofs.
    We enjoyed our stay and recommend th place. Thank you Geoff!

  • The apartment is beautifully furnished. It was very easy to relax and feel at home. It is located close to the tram, shopping and sight seeing. And Adel was very accommodating with the transfers of the keys. We had a very pleasant week in Montpellier! Thank you!

  • Geoff's apartment was simply amazing: great location, design, and facilities. We drove to Montpellier and it there's a public parking literally 2 minutes walk to the flat. Upon arrival, Adel was very helpful on recommending things to do/see and we had a great time overall. The apartment is easy to mantain and there are clear instructions to make the most of it. I'd definitely recommend Geoff's apartment and would stay there again.

  • We had a fantastic weekend at Geoff's beautiful apartment in the centre of historic Montpelier. From the start, all communication was prompt and friendly and, once in the city, we were greeted very warmly by the charming Adel, who was incredibly helpful and accommodating. The apartment is even better than in the photos and everything is so tastefully and stylishly presented that we felt like we were in our own boutique hotel. Very quiet and yet so central, we were mere minutes away walk from all the buzz of the city and yet could quietly watch the sun go down with a glass of wine, over the rooftops from the gorgeous terrace. We will definitely be recommending this flat to our friends and cannot wait to come back and visit the gorgeous city of Montpelier.

  • Great location in the heart of the old town with a spectacular rooftop terrace. This is exactly where you want to be if you are visiting Montpellier. The apartment was the perfect combination of historic charm and modern upgrades.

    September 2013
  • Geoff has got this whole thing down. Renting a very comfortable, well equipped, modern apartment in a perfect location for exploring Montpelier. Great privacy, and with Adele running things, absolutely nothing went wrong.

    September 2013
  • We really enjoyed our weekend in this nice and comfortable apartment. From there, everything is always just within walking distance. Multilingual Adel takes excellent care of the apartment and will always help you out, thanks again, Adel :) As time was too short to see all the cozy restaurants from the inside, we will have to come back to Montpellier. And we would not hesitate to stay again at Geoffreys apartment!

About
Recently left full time work as a College Principal and live mostly in London where I have a beautiful riverside flat available with great views from the balcony. I still work quite a lot and have major interests in the theatre, ballet, opera, travel and food!! I also have an apartment in the centre of the lovely French city of Montpellier, also listed on airbnb. Both places I view as my homes and wish to see them respected as such! I live with my partner Richard who is a graphic designer.
