Quaint 1930s central town-house with private courtyard, well-equipped, 3 levels. Caters for 6. Residential area. Street parking (meters). Direct tram to centre, railway station (4 stops), beaches (with shuttle bus). Organic market 5 mins walk (Tues/Sat.). This is the house we live in. It is therefore only available for several weeks per year when we go away on holiday.
Although we set up this listing awhile back, we haven't used AirBnb yet, either for guests or travelling ourselves, since we have done many house exchanges instead (France, Spain, Australia, New Zealand, Netherlands). We are hoping to use AirBnb as well now!
The kitchen opens out onto a small courtyard which is very pleasant for dining in the long summer evenings. The house is well equipped (dishwasher, washing machine, high-speed Internet, stove/oven, fridge/freezer, microwave). The house is accessible to families with children, but is not suitable for very young children owing to stairs. The house caters for 6 easily. The two extra single beds are in the study (1st floor). One of the single beds is a trundler bed (pulls out from underneath the other single bed). The two single beds are more appropriate for children. They are in the same space as the main mezzanine (Bedroom 1: 2nd floor, queen-size bed). Bedroom 2 has a a double mezzanine bed.
There will be full access to the whole house and courtyard.
Interaction with guests
We will communicate as much as possible with you prior to your visit to Montpellier. We are used to having people stay from all over the world, so we hope you will like being here!
Other things to note
We have lived here for eighteen years and love the area. We have put a lot of time and effort into making our home special. We had major interior renovations done several of years ago.
1. We have not requested a cleaning fee. We would therefore appreciate guests leaving the house in the same very clean state that they found it in.
2. Smoking is strictly prohibited in the house and courtyard.

We live in Montpellier, France and are dual French New-Zealanders, having lived in France for over 30 years; therefore we speak both English and French. I am an associate professor in computational linguistics at the University of Montpellier. We love good simple Mediterranean food (ask me about my published cook-book) and wine, the cinema, good books and traveling. We would like respectful and responsible Airbnb travellers to discover our home in the south of France.
Nous vivons à Montpellier depuis plus de 20 ans. Ayant la double nationalité française et néo-zélandaise, nous sommes bilingues français-anglais. Je suis enseignant-chercheur en linguistique-informatique à l’université Paul-Valéry Montpellier. Nous aimons la bonne cuisine méditerranéenne simple (posez-moi des questions sur mon livre de recettes publié !) et le bon vin, le cinéma, les livres, et les voyages ! Nous sommes prêts à faire découvrir notre maison à des voyageurs Airbnb responsables et respectueux.
