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.

  • Geoff's place is fantastic. It's well-equipped, comfortable, and perfectly located. With just a minute's walk you're surrounded by restaurants, cafes, and shops. Very charming! Had I known how nice it would be, I would've stayed longer!

  • A beautiful apartment in a fantastic city. We just wish the weather had been better as we would have spent more time on the delightful roof terrace. Geoff replied immediately to my request to rent his apartment. He was very helpful throughout the whole process. When we reached Montpellier we met Geoff's friend, Adel who gave us the keys to the flat; he was very friendly and helpful. Geoff and Adel were available by email or SMS whenever we had any questions. We loved the apartment - it is very tastefully decorated but comfortable; we hope to return in the near future

  • The Geof's flat is the best place to stay in Montpellier :
    - very cosy,
    - central (next to the main bars and restaurants)
    - quite (even if it's in the center you can have some rest or sleep without any noise).
    - a very nice top terrasse for your breakfast or a drink after a day at the beach ...

    Unfortunately we couldn't meet Geoff but his friend Adel welcame us very well with his kindness and helped us a lot thanks to his tips.
    You can send them an email or a sms if you have any matter they always answer quickly.

    I highly recommend this flat!
    Personnaly I'll come back wishing it'll be available.

    Thank you for all Guys!

    Best regards!

  • Un séjour très agréable dans ce superbe appartement spacieux et lumineux en plein centre de Montpellier, dans une rue calme. La décoration y est raffinée et de qualité, l'état du duplex est irréprochable. La terrasse bien exposée vous offre une belle vue sur les toits de Montpellier et sur les couleurs du ciel au soleil couchant. La disponibilité et la rapidité de correspondance avec Geoff et l'accueil chaleureux d'Adel sur les lieux, vous mettent en conditions idéales pour passer un excellent séjour. Merci pour cette semaine, notre seul regret est de ne pas avoir pu rester plus longtemps!

  • 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!

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.
