About This Listing
I'm renting a charming 35m2 that we renovated ourselves. It is fully equipped and located in the heart of this vibrant city, at 5 minutes walk from the main train station Gare Montpellier Saint Roch and the famous Comedie place. To get to the closest beach at Palavas les Flots it would take you about 20 to 30 minutes by tramway or bus, the first tramway station being at 1 minute walking distance from the flat.
The flat is a first floor with no lift, it is bright and has high volume in a quiet street. The flat is cool during summer. The closest tramway station is either Rondelet, Saint Denis or Gare St Roch.
The flat is equipped with the following:
- In the bedroom: Double bed 140 cm including bed sheet.
- In the living room: Convertible sofa for two persons including bed sheets.
- Flat screen + 170 Channels available + DVD Player.
- Wifi broadband
We provide bed sheets and towels.
The fat is also equipped with a dining table, 4 chairs, micro waves, fridge, freezer, cooking table, cattle, washing machine, iron table and iron, and coffee machine.
The flat has a shower and toilets.
At two minutes walking distance from the flat you will find a typical french bakery, grocery shop, supermarket, and a typical french market with fresh fruit, fishes from the mediterranée, etc...
At 5 minutes walking distance you will find the living heart of montpellier with local restaurant, bars and also some nightclubs.
If you rent this flat you will be by yourselves, it is not shared with anyone else. For the keys either myself or my mother will be waiting for you at the time you would have indicated us.
Should you have any question, please do not hesitate,
We speak english and hablamos español !

The kitchen is fully equipped with a large fridge and freezer as well as a dining table for 4.
We stayed in Romain's flat for five weeks in July/ August. Romain was quick to respond to booking requests and answer questions about the flat and location. He provided maps to help get there and arranged for his mother to meet my husband and I very late on the night we arrived, after 24 hours of travelling.
Communication with Romain's mother was limited as we don't speak much French, and she was eager for us to like the flat and ensure that we were happy. On first appearances the flat appeared fine and in a generally good condition.
Unfortunately a new day showed the flat had not been cleaned properly before our arrival; the floor was dirty and had not been swept or mopped, all of the eating and cooking utensils required washing before using as the majority had remnants from the previous user, and the toilet and shower were dirty. The bathroom in general was in a poor condition, with mould and flaking paintwork on the shower ceiling. As a result, the first day of our holiday was spent cleaning! When I emailed Romain about the state of the flat he offered to send a cleaner or have the flat cleaned at the end of our stay. It was some compensation, but not a good start to our holiday. The washing machine was also minus its door and it took almost a week to get this fixed, even though Romain knew about this.
The flat is in a good location, about 5 to 10 minutes walk from the train station. There is a tram stop around the corner and tram stops for other lines nearby as well. Both the old town and new town are close and there are plenty of supermarkets nearby. There is also a bread shop around the corner. Montpellier feels very safe to walk around, both day and night.
My husband and I enjoyed our month in Montpellier and feel that if the flat had been left in the condition any visitor would expect, we would have enjoyed our stay there even more.
We did not get to meet Romain but his mother was very friendly. She couldn't speak English so we played charades instead. The place was very well kept and very close to the tram station. Getting around in Montpellier is very easy! Everything was in working order and as promised on the website.
The sleeper couch is decent and I had not problem sleeping. There was plenty of space for two/three people but I think if there are more than three, you must be really comfortable around each other.
Washing the dishes is a pain in the neck if you are taller than 1.5m because there is a strange overhang above the sink.
I would definitely recommend the place! It was great staying there.
We stayed in this well-located apartment in Montpellier for a week in September 2013. Romain arranged for his mother to meet us and drop off the keys and she was lovely and helped us get oriented in the city. A clean, simple apartment with a great shower in a neighbourhood that was close by everything we needed, including the train station.
The appartement was nice and in walking distance to the train station and also the city center. Even though there's only one bedroom and we were three people, we still had enough space. We were welcomed by Romains mother, who showed us everything. On our last day she even let us stay in the appartement into the afternoon, until our train left. We had a great stay and we can only recommend the host and this appartement.
The apartment is good equipped and situated close to the main railway station (walking distance) and city centre. It is well communicated - it took us about 30 min to get to the university, the same time to the beach. We actually didn't meet Romain, but it wasn't a problem cause his mother and brother were very friendly and helpful. I reccomend the place and the host.
Nous avons passé un séjour superbe dans cet appartement impeccable.
Un emplacement idéal pour le tram, la gare ainsi que les commerces et le centre ville.
Un accueil très sympatique à notre arrivée.
Je ne peux que faire des compliments.

About the Host, Romain
J'adore voyager. Je suis né à Montpellier mais n'y habite plus en ce moment. J'adore cette ville. J'aime beaucoup la danse, je fais également du sport : de la course à pied et de la voile.
Je vous accueillerai à votre arrivée, ou quelqu'un de ma famille pour vous faire découvrir cette merveilleuse ville.
