Montpellier, an affordable city on a human scale


Montpellier, nicknamed "La Surdouée" (The Gifted), for having won all the national distinctions in 1990, is a typical city of the South of France, both for its architecture and for the way of life it offers to its inhabitants.

Located in the heart of the Occitanie region, in the Hérault department, Montpellier is a developed city on a human scale.

With 300,000 inhabitants, it welcomes many students every year, thanks to a very complete university offer in many fields; particularly in medicine, with its renowned hospitals and healthcare professionals. 

Located between land and sea, on the shores of the Mediterranean, a stone's throw from the Cévennes and the Pyrenees, it is the perfect compromise for nature lovers who also appreciate urban life. Bathed in sunshine no less than 110 days a year, it is a city that also particularly attracts athletes and gives them the means for their success with dedicated infrastructures. It offers a land conducive to the practice of many activities thanks to its very varied landscapes (forests, rivers, mountains, lakes, sea ...), easily accessible by car and even by transport!

A few tips before booking your short-term rental in Montpellier



Before booking your short-term rental, it is essential to take into account the location of the accommodation. To choose the ideal place, take a map and find all the places you visit regularly. In this way, you will make an informed choice before settling in Montpellier.



L’Écusson, the typical town center


The city center of Montpellier: the Ecusson for those in the know, is the most typical district that you can find in town.

Its architecture is articulated between Haussmannian style, reminiscent of Parisian boulevards, and Provençal architecture, typical of the South of France. It is an ideal district for going out, especially on summer evenings, during which Montpellier residents like to party until the end of the night! It is also here that we find the vast majority of bars, restaurants, places of culture, monuments, shops... 

L'Écusson is organized around the famous Place de la Comédie and its Opera, from which many small streets start in which you will get lost a few times before you can recognize them. It is also a neighborhood of choice for shopping lovers: big brands, independent or designer boutiques, there is something for everyone!

Art lovers will not be left out and can enjoy the Fabre museum, the modern art museum, but also exhibitions in municipal and independent galleries.

In terms of accommodation, the center is full of old and charming buildings, often classified as French buildings. Many Montpellier residents choose the Écusson for its proximity to places of interest and the atmosphere of a lively city center.




The Beaux-Arts district, quiet and intimate


The Beaux-Arts district is attached to the city center of Montpellier and attracts many inhabitants in search of more tranquility in the urban landscape. 

As an extension of the Écusson, it offers a real neighborhood life, quieter and more intimate than in the city center. You will find many local traders there: greengrocers, butchers, bakers, organic shops... As well as bars and restaurants where locals are accustomed and like to meet up for a drink with their friends. It is a rather residential area, with a peaceful and family atmosphere, with mostly recent and modern buildings, very well equipped; although there are also older dwellings in the streets closest to the center. All categories of accommodation are very popular there, both by families and by young people and students. Rents are rather high compared to the average for other districts of Montpellier. It is also an area very well served by transport (tramway and bus), a good choice for art students, because as its name suggests, it is in this area that we find the Montpellier School of Fine Arts.



The short-term rental contract, how does it work?



For a short-term rental, there is a special contract to sign with the owner. This is the mobility lease. Several terms govern this contract:


  • You sign for a rental of maximum 10 months.

  • This contract is not renewable.

  • The accommodation must be furnished.
