Capital of the Languedoc-Roussillon region, less than 3 hours from Barcelona and Italy and just 11 km from the Mediterranean Sea, Montpellier is the ideal place to discover a high-spirited city and some of the most prestigious world heritage sites.

Montpellier is a destination that is full of history mingled with new fascinating architecture for ancient times. Here you'll find the old mingle with the new, the oldest still-operating medical school in the western world, medieval streets lined with boutiques of all kinds, where top international brands mingle with small boutiques that exude the charm of yesteryear. Add to this state of the art year round swimming pools, 3 light rail above ground tram lines that make the city accessible, bike paths, and a patisserie and fruit/legume store on every corner.

The Paris of the South

Vibrant and active, Montpellier is a city that is simply alive and waiting to be discovered.. Montpellier has its own Arc de Triomphe, the exquisite Musee Fabre, two opera houses, and one of the largest squares in Europe - exploring the city is a joy and can easily and happily encompass the entire scope of your stay. The city has a great music scene and there is always something happening in this very vibrant, active university town.

Montpellier is also a great base for exploring Southern France, and an ideal European base with easy train/TGV connections to Paris, two airports close-by with easy intercity and international connections, is located 10 km from some of the nicest beaches in the Mediterranean. The South of France is world famous for its consistently sunny weather, the beautiful blue of the sky and sea and the relaxed yet chic atmosphere. The Montpellier area is particularly blessed with miles of white sandy beaches, coastal lagoons full of oysters and mussels and the Camargue Nature Reserve, with black bulls, wild white horses and a myriad of bird life including thousands of pink flamingos. Tour nearby chateaux and abbeys and dine on wonderful gourmet meals. Kayak, sail, kite surf, dive, fish, or swim in the Mediterranean or just bask in the sun. Enjoy the Mediterranean end of the famous Canal du Midi, lined with sycamore trees, lilies and lovely villages. The Canal is perfect for a long walks and picnics.

Enjoy tasting the acclaimed regional wines of the Languedoc. In this relatively small area there are thirty appellations. Over the last 20 years Languedoc has actively remade itself with a focus on quality production and organic wines. Visiting some of the award wining wineries, driving country roads through the vines and picnicking in the country side is a great way to spend a day or two. ?

Nîmes is less than an hour away and is spectacular for its Roman history and sites including the best preserved Aréna and Roman temple in the world. A short drive from Nîmes is the great village of Uzes and the Pont du Gard, the Roman built aqueduct to serve Nîmes and the third most visited site in France. Provence is also next door, less than a 90 minute drive. Shop for antiques and enjoy weekend flea markets in Isle-sur-la-Sorge, and visit Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Orange, Arles, Aix, and Avignon, for example. Finally, return each evening to relax in your own private apartment. With your fresh market purchases only a minute away, you may make your own coq au vin in the fully-equipped, gourmet kitchen or take the tram to one of the 100s of great restaurants in Montpellier (including a three star Michelin) to enjoy the local cuisine.
