Montpellier

The city is built on two hills and is located 10 km inland from the Mediterranean coast on the River Lez. The name of the city is said to have stood for mont pelé, the naked hill, because the vegetation was poor. Some of its streets are very narrow and old, which gives it a more intimate feel

The city is friendly and picturesque with lanes, passages, little squares and mansions dating from the 17th and 18th Centuries and its delightful tramway system. The historic centre has been pedestrianised, so it is a pleasant place to stroll around or linger over a drink at a café on the square and listen to the talented buskers. It is lively in the evening due to its theatres, cinemas, operas and other performances and its generally younger population due to the incredible number of students there.

The climate and weather in Montpellier due to its situation in the Mediterranean, offers one of the best and sunniest climates of the whole of France - there are more than 300 days of sunshine per year! Montpellier and its region are attractive all year round.
