The Space

Beautiful and quiet 2 room apartment to rent by the day, week-end, week or month.

Perfectly located: minutes from the historical city centre by foot, and only a few car minutes from the A9 highway (going to the beaches).

The apartment, recently renovated, is newly equipped and furnished, with a little bed-room, a big living room with open kitchen, toilet, bathroom.
It's surface is 37m² (400 ft²), perfect for a single person or a couple, with or without kids.

The apartment is located at the first (and last) floor, under the roof, of a traditional old building (early XXth century) (without elevator).
It faces a quiet courtyard, with windows in every room, and some roof windows, so it has lots of light.

The apartment is fully prepared for you on your arrival, ready for you to "move in" with just a suitcase!

===== The surroundings =====

The building is a traditional old building (early XXth century) with a spacious stone-floor staircase (there is no lift).

The Windows are facing a quite tiny yard, so there is not much of a view. Nevertheless the opposite building has the same height, so light has plenty of space to come in.

The area is lively and offers many amenities:
- a little fruit and vegetable shop not far
- many supermarkets and drugstores not far
- many cafés, bars and restaurants within walking distance
- a beautiful park around the corner
- and much more to discover :-)

===== By Car =====

The apartment is easily reached from the A9 highway.

There are two options for parking the car:

1) in the surrounding streets you will always find some place within short walking distance. During the day, tickets have to be bought, and long term parking is only possible in certain streets

2) the underground parking "Gambetta" is just nearby, but it can get expensive, depending on the time

I will be happy to give you more precise information depending on your situation and wishes.

===== Location =====

The historical city centre is within a couple of minutes walking distance.
This means a direct access to a myriad of restaurants, bars, little boutiques, beautiful places...

The tramway lines 3 and 4 are just at the end of the street, a 2 minutes walk (please note that as of today the lines 3 and 4 do not appear on goggle maps).
Line 3 gives access to the beaches (25mn ride + shuttle bus).

The central train station is within 10 walking minutes.
From there you have access to all 4 tramway lines as well as to high speed trains (TGV) for Paris, Spain, etc.

With a car, you can quickly leave the city by a main street, at the end of the apartment's street.
You can get to the A9 highway in about 8 minutes from the apartments location.

===== Notes =====


The apartment is run in an effort of sustainability.
Windows are double glazed. Induction cooking is (when gas is not available) the most energy effective way of heating food. We make every effort to minimize waste and recycle.

Reservation, payment, security deposit

The reservation, payment and security deposit are handled entirely by and via AirBnB.

===== Contact & More =====

The apartment is fully prepared for you on your arrival, ready for you to "move in" with just a suitcase.

I will be happy to make your stay in Montpellier a great experience.

Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • Le séjour a encore une fois été parfait (c'est la deuxième fois que je loue cet appartement). Cet appartement est effectivement charmant, très fonctionnel, dans un état impeccable. Il est idéalement situé à une dizaine de minutes à pied de la gare ou de la place de la Comédie. Le quartier est également très calme. Idéal pour 2 personnes (une chambre), avec la possibilité d'un troisième couchage sur le canapé.

  • We had a lovely stay at Michael's. It is in a central location that was very suitable for us, with plenty of shops and supermarkets nearby as well as a nice small park. The wi-fi was fast, the neighbourhood was quiet, the kitchen was fairly well provided for with an induction hob and a combination microwave, oven & grill (useful for us) and the dining table was a good size. The bed was comfortable and it was nice to have double pillows each. Michael responded very quickly to answer the few questions we had. Check in and check out were really easy and Michael was very flexible and helpful. All in all we would recommend staying here.

  • Obligés de venir à Montpellier pour qq jours en urgence, Michael et son épouse se sont montrés très réactifs et disponibles. L'appartement est en effet charmant, parfaitement aménagé et très bien situé, ce qui nous a permis de nous déplacer très facilement à pied comme en tram. Un grand merci à eux.

  • Nous avons passé un séjour fantastique à Montpellier et dans l'appartement de Michael! L'appartement était super propre, joli et en même temps pas loin du centre ville. Nous aimerons revenir!

  • Really enjoyed my time in this nice apartment so close to the Old Town of Montpellier, and seeing the photo makes me quite miss it!
    Very quiet, reasonably well equipped and I must say, a very comfortable bed.
    Local transport on the doorstep, if you want to go further than the centre. Supermarket round the corner - and a second hand book shop if that floats your boat - did mine!
    Montpellier itself a pleasant and friendly place to go and climate mild at this time of year (October). All in all, a very nice stay.

  • Check in worked out very smoothly, Michael was a communicative and 100% reliable host - since we were travelling with a 2,5 year old gilr this was important to us and we are really greatful for the way everything was handled. Great location, no parking issues, a bakery and a convenience store right in front of the door, 5 minutes to the historic center of town - highly recommendable.

I love travelling, not only as a tourist but also for work, it makes you meet people and share moments of life. I live and work between South of France, Montpellier, and Paris. I very much enjoy being in Paris and in Montpellier myself, and will be happy to welcome you there, in your new home!
