During the middle ages Montpellier began to develop and unfold at great ‘vitesse’ and although the city is now over 1000 years old there is certainly nothing aged about it.   The capital of the Languedoc-Roussillon, Montpellier’s reputation for a dynamic, vibrant cultural melting pot is confirmed.  There is something for everyone in this city and close surrounds – with stunning architecture in the centre, magnificent country scenery and beautiful clean sandy beaches.   The coast is only 7kms from the city centre and there are a wide selection of activities and events going on in the area all through the year. Located half way between France and Spain and with an estimated population of around 300,000 the city is only 3 hours 15 minutes from Paris on the TGV with its own international airport and sophisticated tram network.  The tram lines 3 and 4 (decorated by inspirational designs of Christian Lacroix) are now running out towards the coast bringing city and sea closer together.

The Golf de Massane is situated 12kms from the centre of Montpellier and since being built 12 years ago is now the fifth largest golf course in France.

As the eighth sunniest city in France it thrives on it’s sunshine thoughout all the seasons with an attractive mild winter climate.
