“Nous avons passé un très agréable séjour à Montpellier. Nous avons été très bien accueillis dans la maison de Rachel et Saji. La maison est très confortable avec une petite terrasse trés agréable pour prendre les repas, et idéalement située prés du centre : le tram passe à proximité. Nous avons pu nous promener dans le centre ville et aussi aller à la plage très facilement ( le tram y mène...). Montpellier est une ville très agréable, ou il fait bon flâner. Ce fut un très bel échange et nous avons eu un très bon contact. A recommander!”
Rachel's reviewsAs a host (4)
“We visited Montpellier for 11 days in July 2013, to complete our exchange with Rachel and her lovely teenage son, Saji. She graciously met us on our arrival in Montpellier and accompanied us to her unique house, which has been recently refurbished and in which she obviously takes great pride. This is reflected in the standard of cleanliness and orderliness she maintains throughout the house. Overall, a very comfortable residence with the small courtyard off the kitchen being ideal for relaxing and all fresco dining. Its location, being quite close to a tram stop, made access to the town very easy (only a five minute trip) and the same journey can also be made comfortably on foot (about 20 minutes), which we undertook many times. There are many local and nearby places of interest, easily accessible from Rachel's house. Montpellier is well worth a visit, as it is an exciting and vibrant city. Thank you Rachel and Saji for your warm hospitality, we really enjoyed our stay.”
“We had a great exchange with Rachel for just over a week in April 2018. With a group of three adults, the house had more than enough space. It has a unique interior, with a beautiful large living room to have dinners together (and a fully equipped kitchen to cook them!). It's also located in a very convenient location with a tram nearby that brings you directly to the central station in just a few stops. Rachel was also kind enough to let us use two superb bicycles which made taking short day-trips and getting around the city a pleasure. Communication about the key exchange, arrival and instructions for the home were very clear. Rachel's home is cosy, has character and is a wonderful place to spend some time in Montepellier! Rachel, her son and their group were great guests as well, leaving everything clean, neat and orderly. All in all, we thoroughly enjoyed our time in Montpellier and can highly recommend an exchange with Rachel!”
“During a short week in August I spent a short week with my son in Montpellier, where we had a great time during which we enjoyed the city of Montpellier with its very kind people as well as the seaside close to Montpellier. At our arrival at Montpellier, we were warmly welcomed by Rachel and her son. They showed us around in their house and gave us groceries for the first day. They were so kind to offer us gifts from the region. These great signs of hospitality provided us with the perfect start of our wonderful stay in which we mainly visited the cultural heritage of this great historic city and visited the seaside. The house is perfectly located, close to the city center (15-20 minutes walk) as well as close to a stop of tram nr 3. Tram nr. 3 brings you to city and to the bus that takes you to the beach. The spacious clean and tidy house was perfect for us. It was not too warm in the summer and the windows were well protected with screens to prevent mosquitos to enter the house. In short, I really enjoyed our stay in Montpellier as well as the encounter with Rachel and her son; therefore I highly recommend this exchange.”
Where is it?
Transport without a car is very easy from our house as there is a tramway station just around the corner. 4 tramway lines make getting around the city very easy. We are on Tramway line n° 3 (just four stops direct from central train station). Just get off at the "Arceaux" stop and walk a short stretch up the hill, then turn left (about 3 mins). It is also a pleasant 25-minute walk to the main square of Montpellier "place de la Comedie". Our street is quiet and we know all of the surrounding neighbours well. There is a park at the end of the street which children like. One of our favourite Saturday morning activities is popping down (5 minute walk) to the Arceaux outdoor food market. I use my bike to get around the city and for going to work. Montpellier is a young city (~60 000 students) and many French people would like to live here in the south because of the pleasant climate and easy access to beaches (20-minute drive or tram+bus trip) or the country (1-hour drive to the Cevennes). Montpellier is just 3hrs 20mins to Paris and 2hrs 50 mins to Barcelona by fast (TGV) train and there are direct flights all year round to various French cities (Ajaccio, Bastia, Bordeaux, Brest, Lille, Nantes, Paris-CDG, Paris-Orly, Strasbourg) and also international destinations (Algiers, Amsterdam, Bâle-Mulhouse, Casablanca, Charleroi, Fes, London-Gatwick, Marrakesh, Nador, Oran) and during specific months (Barcelona, Berlin, Copenhagen, Dublin, Dusseldorf, Franckfurt-Hahn, London-Luton, Rotterdam, Stockholm).
