Description

Perfectly located apartment adjacent to the Prefecture and the central marketplace in historic Ecusson offering the best of the vibrant centre while only being 15 minutes drive from a series of unspoilt beaches and hinterland. One of the very few apartments available for holiday rental in the pedestrianised centre which truly evokes the elegance and character of 17th C Montpellier while offering every modern facility.

Comprising several reception rooms of a former Hotel Particulier, the rooms are all of grand proportions and retain the original plaster mouldings and ceilings, cartouches, marble fireplaces, pier glass mirrors and stone floors. Near floor to ceiling windows in all the main rooms and a ceiling height of 4.25 m lends the apartment a sense of spaciousness and light. Furnished with period antiques the apartment is elegant and stylish and very much in keeping with its era.

Sleeps 1 or 2 couples in a separate bedroom and sitting room with high quality convertible

“Exceptional apartment”

Reviewed 19 Jul 2015

The apartment is exceptional in every way. The location is superb. Located in the centre of old Montpellier, restaurants, bars & a market are right on your doorstep. The apartment has been renovated to the highest standard whilst retaining all of its character. Gorgeous antique furnishings, a modern kitchen, bathroom & laundry amenities, excellent air conditioning which was very much appreciated, fast reliable wifi. We loved the hifi stereo in the dining & lounge room. All amenities were as described & working perfectly. Alistair the owner was a breeze to communicate with, professional & prompt in every instance. To gain access Alistair couriers the keys & emails arrival instructions making your arrival stress free. On several occasions during our stay we emailed to ask Alistair questions regarding the apartments antiques & we appreciated his passionate responses. We plan to return to Montpellier & to once again stay at this apartment. Very highly recommended!!!

“We LOVE this place!”

Reviewed 6 May 2014

Montpellier was a wonderful discovery for us, an interesting and friendly city. And if you want to feel really French during your sojourn there, then this apartment is the place to stay! It's a wonderful blend of 16th century architecture, beautifully restored and combined with truly tasteful and comfortable modern convenience (fabulous kitchen and bathroom renovation!) I know - that sounds like an oxymoron, but it all works together magnificently to give the best of both worlds. There are several language schools nearby. I loved IEF, and it's only a few minutes walk from this apartment. We also loved the covered market just across from the apartment, and we had many a beer or a coffee on the terraces of several cafés just adjacent. We've stayed here a few times now - and we"ll be back!

“Fabulous holiday”

Reviewed 29 Jul 2013

We had a fabulous time in Montpellier, a truly magical place. The apartment was ideally located within a short walk of restaurants and the main shopping area. Across the road from the back entrance to the apartment was a wonderful market selling fresh fish, vegetables, fruit and cheese. The apartment had a well equipped kitchen,the furniture was of a high standard and the shower was excellent. We will definitely return to Montpellier and stay at this apartment.

“Exquisite apartment in the heart of old Montpellier”

Reviewed 22 Jul 2012

We stayed here for 5 days in May, with our 2 college age daughters. It was a short walk from the train station. Perfectly located. The apartment was beautifully restored, and updated with modern conveniences. The kitchen and dining space were wonderful, and with a market across the street we spent more time eating in than planned. The owner Alistair was very responsive and helpful with great local suggestions. Definitely would return.

“A beautiful apartment in the heart of Ecusson in Montpellier”

Reviewed 17 Jun 2011

We had a very nice stay for a week in this beautifully decorated and furnished apartment in Montpellier. The apartment is well located for all the amenities such as restaurants and bars in the nearby streets. The decoration and furnishings have been done to a very high standard and the flat is very comfortable..especially the bed. The bathroom and kitchen are of high spec also. It was a great introduction to Montpellier, being able to experience the life style of the city and having the comfort of this apartment to return to each evening. I would highly recommend this apartment. Keith Hall, Edinburgh
