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.

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 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!!!!!

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.

We loved this flat! It's perfectly located near restaurants, bars, cafes, and shops, and looks just like the pictures. Geoff and Adel are wonderful hosts. Montpellier is a perfect little city, and staying in this beautiful flat added to the experience. Thank you!

I have only the highest praise for the entire experience. The apartmet is just as depicted--beautifully appointed and very comfortable, right in the heart of Montpellier's old center. It is also wonderfully quiet, even though there is a lot of lively street life nearby. I would certainly try stay there again if my work brings me back to Montpellier.

Modern, Spacious, Convenient, Quiet and Secure. This apartment is modern, spacious, convenient, quiet and secure. I'm pleased to recommend it to others who are interested in staying in Montpellier. First, Geoff did an excellent job of communicating with me while I was making a decision about which apartment to book for our 13 day stay in Montpellier. Based on the communication - his quick responses, helpful information, etc. - I felt comfortable booking the apartment - my first Airbnb experience. Second, the apartment was ideal for me and my husband - it has the conveniences of home with a full refrigerator, oven, washing machine - and a brand new Nespresso machine (which was awesome, so thanks Geoff!); it is near restaurants, quiet spaces, shopping, etc., and it is located close enough to everything one needs and is yet quite secure. As soon as we booked the apartment, Geoff's colleague, Adel, who lives in Montpellier, worked with us on a meeting time for the day of our arrival. He met us near the Place de la Comedie and walked with us to the apartment. It was an easy 10 minute walk. At the apartment, he showed us how to use a few things and offered to be available if we needed anything/had any further questions. Luckily, everything in the apartment worked well so we did not need to reach out to him again. Overall, great find and great experience. Thanks Geoff (and Adel)!

We loved this apartment! It was exactly as pictured, very roomy, very clean, with a lovely loft as extra relaxation space, which led to a terrace on the roof. We loved the stone staircase leading up to out front door - hard to explain but absolutely charming. The building had several other apartments and was very quiet. Kitchen was well stocked, and Geoff is an exceptionally generous host, leaving all the extra paper goods, condiments, soaps, etc. We also appreciated the extras like stacks of books to read, dozens of dvds and English language cable tv. We really felt like we were living in a home, and it was so relaxing to take a break and come back for lunch, coffee, etc. Geoff's friend Adel let us into the flat, and he was great - met us at the appointed time, very friendly with great English, and he gave us a good solid orientation to the flat, and made sure we knew how to contact him if we needed anything at all. Thanks to both of you for making our visit to the beautiful city of Montpellier just perfect.

We made arrangements with Emil to meet at 3 PM on our day of arrival. We arrived about 5 minutes late and he was there waiting for us. He oriented us and made us feel at him. He was easy to communicate with since he must check his email frequently . This apartment is one of the best places we have ever stayed in! It is excellently located, was very clean when we moved in, is amazingly quiet. We were told that we could use the food that was there, and we did so--replacing most of it. The apartment itself is beautifully decorated and everything worked (except that there were some short wifi blackouts). The bed is comfortable. The price is much lower than we might expect. We honored the request to be careful with the air-conditioning--but it was certainly nice to come home after a hot day to the comfort of a home that cooled off quickly. We have nothing negative to say about this wonderful airbnb site!

Geoff User ProfileGeoff is a superhost.

I 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 airbnb listed apartments in the beautiful cities of Montpellier in the South of France and Malaga on the south coast of Spain with over 100 reviews between them.

I view these as my homes and wish to see them respected as such! I live with my partner Richard who is a graphic designer.
