Montpellier is a beautiful town on the south coast of France. It’s down the coast from the more popular destination of Nice, meaning there’s less of a tourist presence, giving it a more relaxed feel. These top Airbnb properties are all in the centre of town, close public transport links and the incredible beaches, so check them out!

We handpicked these listings carefully, considering (wherever possible) Superhost status, recent guest reviews, location, accommodation type, prices, availability of dates, decor, and amenities. The image galleries get refreshed with the latest updates regularly. They were last updated on May 15, 2024.

1. Elegant apartment with a terrace (from USD 73)

It is also only a short stroll from St. Pierre Cathedral, the magnificent Place de la Comédie, the Arc de Triomphe, and the Jardin des Plantes. You can use the welcome guide to learn about the local shops, a map of the tram and the city, the top restaurants, and the most convenient methods to get to the beaches without a car.

The property offers all the conveniences including laundry, a baby cot, central air conditioning, and heating. Apart from that, there is a fast WiFi connection that allows you to stream videos and a complete kitchen to prepare your favorite recipes.
