We've rented many times, but Linh & Guillaume's introduction to the apartment and the town is by far the best we've experienced - and their kindness as we left, in donating us a bucket for our daughter, who was embarking on a car journey after an night of illness, was much appreciated! This is the most immaculate (decor/maintenance/cleaning on arrival) place we've stayed. The location is ideal, if you plan to use public transport on holiday: the directions Linh & Guillaume will send you to get from the train station to the apartment are foolproof, it's 2 mins walk to/from a stop for the key No 1 tram line, one minute from a stand for Montpelliers's excellent bike-rental scheme, and the short walk to Place de la Comedie & the start of the Old Town is flat, pleasant and always feels safe. Also perfect if you have a car, since secure parking in the basement is available at no extra cost. Staying here you'll feel as though you are living in the town, rather than visiting as tourists. We enjoyed living in the centre of town so much we lost enthusiasm for using it as a base for sight-seeing - though Montpellier is excellently placed for such day trips. It would be worth googling 'Domaine d'O' (in a suburb to the north, accessible by blue (no 1) tram line) - an arts & cultural centre in grounds of chateau, with free concerts, in newly-constructed, outdoor, Roman-style theatre, throughout the summer. Great atmosphere - bring a picnic or buy from the lovely cafe on site. The Estivales festival, off Place de la Comedie, each Friday evening, which Linh & Guillaume will recommend, is also v worthwhile, if you're interested in local food and wine. All in all, this apartment is an ideal base for a family trip with young adults/older teenagers, as the town has a vibrant, young feel to it and its location means everyone can be free to do their own thing. Loved being able to make good coffee in the apartment too...! Thanks. Hope we can get back some time, either for the rugby or for more summer sun in your lovely city..."
