The space

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.

Guest access

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 neighborhood

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!

Getting around

Montpellier has a superb public transport system and a great bike hire network.

House Rules
No smoking
Not suitable for pets
No parties or events
May not be safe or suitable for children (0-12 years)
Check in time is 5PM - 8PM

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!!!!!

Great flat! Close to everything - shops, bars, restaurants, food market. Everything as described and very clean. The terrace was great too - however bear in mind there's a spiral staircase that could be tricky for some. (Totally fine for us though, even after a few glasses of wine on the roof!) Also, my husband and I slept on two single beds pushed together which was not a problem for us, but something to consider if that's not for you. Overall, a great little apartment in the perfect spot to explore Montpellier!

Thank you for a great stay in the best location in Montpellier. Walking distance to everything you need, yet quiet and with a lovely and sunny roof terrasse. We hope to be back next year :)

We so enjoyed our stay in the flat. There was quiet and the beds were very comfortable. The decor exceeded our expectations. Geoff provided quality linens and there were plenty of towels. The kitchen was well stocked for anyone wanting to cook their meals. Just a walk out the door and you are in the central city with stores nearby. Two supermarkets within walking distance as well as a fresh produce market a block away. Leisurely walks to all the historic sights. We would highly recommend the flat to any wanting to visit Montpellier. We are looking forward to a return visit. Thanks again Geoff and a thank you to Adel for orienting us on our arrival.

Perfectly located in the city centre with several nice resataurants and the market hall arround the corner. Surprisingly quiet! Very spacious living room (a bit difficult to get warm in winter time) with stylish furniture. Roof terace with view onto the cathedral. Perfect spot to stay in Montpellier!

My visit to Montpellier was absolutely great, the weather was mostly sunny, and there was a wonderful flat where I enjoyed my evenings and nights.

Geoff was in touch and very helpful right from the start, along with Adel who met us in Montpellier, so it made the whole process extremely smooth and pleasant. On arrival, Adel took us to the flat, explained everything, showed us where the nearest food shops were and remained in touch in case we needed anything else - we were made to feel extremely welcome. The flat was perfect, with everything we needed (and more!) and was a welcome haven in the storms that coincided with our visit! The flat is very central and within walking distance of some lovely bars and restaurants, so offers the perfect base from which to explore the beautiful city of Montpellier - we definitely plan to return. Thanks for all your help, and hospitality, Geoff.

I rate this apartment and the experience a 10++. Everything I thought of, and reached for, such as a blanket, extra towels, cleaning supply, interesting place to sit, such as the terrasse, movie to watch, proximity to all things Montpellier, it was there - including champagne glasses that we needed. When we arrived, Adel totally oriented us, Geoff checked in with us several times and there were plenty of info books on the coffee table. Most important for sleeping, it was quiet. And this was amazing since as soon as you stepped outside and walked a few feet to the corner, you were enveloped in the energy and activity of Montpellier. We intend to return and recommend it without any reservation. Thank you Geoff and Adel.

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.
