DISCOVER MONTPELLIER AND ALL ITS FANTASTIC LOCATIONS
The beautiful landscape, contemporary architecture and rich cultural scene of Montpellier merge with the typical bonne vie of the Mediterranean, and of course, the character of southern France: sun, sea, cuisine and local wine. Explore the city streets on the new trams, decorated by fashion designer Christian Lacroix, or wander through the medieval lanes full of intriguing shops. Be blinded by the colours and tempted by the aromas in the Les Arceaux market, and stop to try one of the many gourmet restaurants. And if you need to get away from the hustle and bustle, just a few miles away you’ll find beaches, vineyards and nature reserves to escape to and relax - or have a go at some adventure sports.
NEW DISTRICTS: ANTIGONE AND PORT MARIANNE
Lovers of architecture have an ulterior motive for visiting Montpellier. Away from the old quarter toward the south-east of the city are three places to marvel at: Antigone, Les Rives du Lez and Port Marianne. Antigone was designed by Ricardo Bofill in a neo-classical style reminiscent of Ancient Greece, in which explorers come across copies of Greco-Roman statues such as Victoria of Samotracia or Zeus. Jean Nouvel also left his mark, on the impressive new city building in the form of the Port Marianne blue rhomboid. Some of the world’s best architects have given these three suburbs a unique character, and they are now a Mecca for fans of contemporary urbanism.
The nerve centre of Montpellier, and the point where the old town meets the more modern side of the city. The lively square is full of cafés and terraces, and actually in the shape of an egg, which gives it its local nickname L’Oeuf. In the centre is one of the city’s emblems, the Three Graces(Aglaia, Euphrosyne and Thalia) a fountain by sculptor Étienne dʼAntoine, and on its edges are two temples of culture, the Ópera Comédie and the Ópera Berloz inside the impressive granite building the Corum, by the architect Claude Vasconi. La Place de la Comédie is a great starting point for a cultural tour of the city.
RESTAURANT L'ALLIANCE DES PLAISIRS
Alliance des Plaisirs is an intimate bistro in the historic centre of Montpellier, where 15 lucky diners are wined and dined by its friendly owners, Vincent and Audrey. Specialising in creative and refined French cuisine, and always faithful to the taste of original produce, the menu changes with the seasons, the whims of the chef and the taste of the ingredients, all of which are sourced within the Languedoc-Rosellón region. Gove your taste buds a treat, and combine delicious roasted dorado with vegetables tartar or tender roast lamb with local potatoes and asparagus, beautifully accompanied by a bottle of something from the select wine cellar.
