Favourite Cities and Hotels in France

The capital of France's phenomenal Languedoc-Roussillon region, home to some of the most famous wines in the world, is a wonderful city to explore. One feature that plays in Montpellier's favor is the fact that the Mediterranean coast is a mere 10 km away. One walk around town however and thoughts of the Côte d'Azur are sure to dissipate. After all, with a lovely cityscape that contains more than 250,000 people, Montpellier is a dynamic destination.

The veritable heart of the city is the Place de la Comédie, a focal point of pedestrian action and heritage landmarks. The old quarter of Montpellier is rife with historic grand estates, or hôtels, most of which date back to the late 17th century and the reign of Louis XIV. Other important attractions include the Musée Fabre, Tour de la Babote and the great Montpellier Cathedral, a national monument of France with origins in the late 14th century.

    Magnetic Montpellier

    Rich history meets contemporary chic in Montpellier, a confident yet modest city in southern France. Seventeenth-century philosopher John Locke once said, ‘I find it much better to go twice to Montpellier than once to the other world.’ Of course, much of the ‘other world’ hadn’t been discovered at the time Locke was waxing so lyrical, but his point remains. Because if you want style, culture, natural beauty and the wonderfully French joie de vivre from morning until long into the night, you want Montpellier.

    Meander along the vast tree-lined esplanade and explore some history at the Place Royale du Peyrou, test your expertise in edibles with a fantastic tour through the world of food and foods of the world at Agropolis, or just while away the afternoon among the flowers in France’s oldest botanical garden – Jardin des Plantes.
