A weekend in Montpellier is the perfect time to soak up its unique atmosphere. After getting yourself settled in your hotel room, wander the medieval streets of the Écusson neighborhood, linger a while in the Place de la Comédie, and take some time to admire the city’s modern architecture, designed by top architects. Take in the Arc de Triomphe, an iconic landmark looking out over the Promenade du Peyrou. From the heights of the park you’ll get to enjoy some stunning views across Montpellier. Time for some culture? Head to the Fabre Museum to see a vast collection of French paintings. Or maybe you’d rather get back to nature? The botanical garden is the place for you.
Whether you’re in Montpellier for business or pleasure, a week’s stay is the perfect amount of time to explore the thousand-year-old city and delve deeper into the surrounding area. Save some time to check out the city’s modern neighborhoods, too: the neoclassical architecture of Antigone will amaze you, as will the quirky, stylish buildings of Port Marianne. If you’re staying at a Première Classe hotel in Montpellier over the summer, there are some fantastic seaside resorts nearby: La Grande Motte, Palavas-les-Flots and Sète. The superb scenery of the Camargue, the Hérault Gorges, and Salagou Lake are also worth a visit.
Of all the feelings you’ll experience during a family stay in Montpellier, boredom is definitely not one! In the summer, make the most of the seaside to swim, picnic, or just chill out. On the way to the beach, stop off at the Réserve du Méjean in Lattes, a preserve squeezed between land and sea with a wealth of plant and wildlife that will knock your socks off. There’s the archaeological site for the ancient city of Lattara not far away too, along with the Henri Prades museum. To make sure the whole family enjoys a comfortable vacation, we offer a range of services at Première Classe hotels including breakfast, parking, and Wi-Fi access.
