Right in the heart of Montpellier our comfortable one bedroom flat has been totally modernised to provide a comfortable and relaxing environment. The roof terrace with wonderful rooftops views is an added bonus! Tram system within walking distance.
Delightful spacious apartment right in the centre of the Ecusson (the heart of Montpellier). It is on the second floor of a period building 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 lovely roof terrace overlooking the cathedral and rooftops. Despite being in the centre, 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.
The apartment is close to all the attractions of Montpellier - and also of course close to the beaches that are accessible by the new tram line.
Interaction with Guests
If I am not there my friend Adel will meet guests and take them to the apartment to show how everything works - he speaks English, German, Spanish, Arabic and of course French. He has great local knowledge and is happy to give you tips on restaurants etc. There is a folder in the flat that provides information on local attractions etc.
The centre of the city is a vibrant and colourful environment with plenty of bars, restaurants and shops. Despite being right in the centre of the city this the apartment itself is quiet! I love being able to get up in the morning and just wander down to the local boulangerie to buy a baguette or croissant!
Montpellier has a superb public transport system and a great bike hire network.
The apartment is absolutely a non-smoking environment! All windows have wooden shutters and when not in the apartment it is best to keep these closed. Apart from that there are no real 'house rules' apart from the obvious ones of respecting your neighbours as you would hope they will respect you. The plants on the balcony like some water from time to time - as do those in the courtyard downstairs!!
I also of course expect you to respect the flat and its contents. I love the apartment and expect it to be treated with care and respect. Occasionally some things can get broken but if they do please either replace or leave appropriate money to replace..... If you use any of the household goods and they run out please replace them.
There is air conditioning and heating - same system ('reversible'). PLEASE do not leave on all the time as it is very expensive to run!!!!!
Fabulous location; lovely modernized flat. The mezzanine is a nice extra and a very warm and cozy space to hang out (as would be the rooftop terrace in the warm months). Our welcome and orientation by Adel was friendly and helpful. Though we never met Geoff, he was easily accessible by email.
Nous avons pu passer auprès de la cheminée, un noël familial et chaleureux. L'appartement permets et incite à la réunion, coté salon et coté terrasse. Très bien placé l'appartement permet de flâner très rapidement de places en places.. Parfait pour y poser ses valises et s'y reposer. A noter le service attentif et la veille d'Adel qui assure votre sentiment de confort et confiance.
The apartment is great! Is very spacious and it looks even better than the pictures. Adel received us on time and showed us the apartment. Meanwhile Geoff was making sure we were comfortable during our stay. The place is very near the center so it was very convenient. I will definitely recommend this place to stay. Thanks Geoff.
We stayed 5 nights. The flat is in a very nice little street in the middle of Montpellier's old city. The flat is an old (lot of 'cachet') house but very comfortable. The flat is decorated with a lot of taste and has all the kitchen and bathroom equipment to make you feel home. Landlords are very friendly and easy going. In a nutshell this is great value for money to anyone who wants to feel at home in Montpellier. This kind of flat are what makes airbnb so great.
Logement idéalement situé, très bien équipé, très calme avec une terrasse idyllique. Accueil prévenant et bienveillant.
Bref, rien à redire, nous recommandons sans réserve.
This was the best Air BnB experience we have had thus far. Adel was so nice, the location is perfect, and it is clean and quiet. Not to mention you have lots of room and a good shower, which is not always easy to find! Well worth it.
What to say about this apartment. Superb location, very central and yet a little oasis of calm and escape from the crowds with not a sound to be heard. This, even on the top floor terrace, which was an amazing spot for lunch from the nearby Halles, the local market and for a late afternoon glass of wine. The apartment has plenty of space and is beautifully furnished, the bed extremely comfortable and the kitchen well stocked with everything we needed. Plenty of Restaurants and bars nearby and local boulangeries and small casino supermarket for purchasing provisions. Adel met us to give us access to the apartment and checked in during our stay to make sure everything was ok. First class from start to finish, would definitely recommend and use Geoff's place if we are visiting again.

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.
