As well as the various qualities listed above, Montpellier is also positioned right next to the Mediterranean! 10 tiny minutes by car will take you there, but if you prefer the public transport option, that's no problem either, as there are also trams to take you to the coast!
Fine sand beaches, protected plant life and yachting harbours are all therefore within reach, and we strongly recommend you take advantage of them, as the coastline in the surrounding region is home to all sorts of lovely features!
After an afternoon spent in the water, kitesurfing or lazing around (delete as appropriate), you'll be able to sip a glass of something nice on one of the private beaches in the area, and also eat on-site if you like!
With the beaches of Le Grand Travers and L’Espiguette, you'll have all sorts of options for cooling off. And that's no bad thing at all because, don't forget, the sunshine in Montpellier is strong!
