Our suggestions for a romantic stay


There are lots of romantic ways to get out and about around Montpellier!

Why not enjoy a walk hand-in-hand on the Nature House paths in Lattes to spot different local birds?

The beach is just 30 mins from central Montpellier and open all year round. So how about a trip to Villeneuve-lès-Maguelone and its beautiful cathedral nestled between the sea and lagoons? You may be lucky enough to see flamingos in flight!

Fancy some nearby nature? May we suggest a bike ride along the Lez starting at Bassin Jacques Coeur? You’ll find contemporary attractions here and a footpath leading to the sea shore with Port Ariane and Lez market along the way.
