Our suggestions Sports stay

Montpellier, city of sports!

Come and cheer on your favourite teams and sportsmen and women or do some activity during your stay!

Montpellier is the perfect place to combine everything!


Hike in the countryside

Why not stay in an unusual accommodation at the Cabanes de l’Arbousier in Castries in the Montpellier Metropole?

An ideal base camp for your first walk around Montpellier along the aqueduct.

On foot or by bike, this easy route is ideal to start your discovery.

Too easy for you? Why not try the Pic Saint Loup, one of France’s favourite walks?

From the top, the view is splendid over the whole of the hinterland!

Let's go for a ride !

If you are a bike freak, Montpellier is an ideal destination.

Whether on the coast or between vineyards and countryside.

Why not take the Green path from the Jacques Coeur basin to the beaches?

Along the edge of a pond, between the trees, this short route is very pleasant for discovering the local fauna and flora.

It will take you past points of interest such as the Marché du lez, Port Ariane in Lattes and the Maison de la Nature!

Sea side

Do you prefer the aquatic element?

Head for the sea, just a few minutes from Montpellier!

Why not take advantage of it to practice a local sport like kitesurfing? One of the best spots is the Grand Travers beach, which offers marked areas for a safe practice.

Another option is to take advantage of the proximity of the river Lez to go canoeing/kayaking.

Another way to enjoy the surrounding garrigue. The Lavalette water sports centre in Montpellier seems perfectly suited to this!

Watch high-level sport competition

You’ve done your exercices? It’s time to watch others sweat.

And not just anyone! Montpellier has elite clubs in many sports: MHSC,MHR,MHB,BLMA…

Why not combine your stay with a major sporting event? The Open Sud de France and the Marathon at the beginning of the year, the FISE and the BOTY in spring, the Festikite and the Beach Masters in summer.

Not forgetting in 2023, the European Judo Championships in November.
