Montpellier is a spirited and fashionable French city. Doubling its population in just 40 years, this student-strong city is fiercely popular for its superior quality of life. Its charming historic center, its pedestrian area ( the largest in France), its animation and sunny climate are a few of the characteristics of Montpellier. The city attracts culture lovers with its Opera House, Medieval streets and its prestigious architectural heritage. The luxury real estate market of Montpellier is concentrated in certain areas including the historic center or so-called Écusson, where prestigious high end apartments are found. Nearby are the Boutonnet and Beaux-Arts neighborhoods, very highly coveted among fortuitous high end buyers.
In the eastern part of the city, beautiful contemporary condos built in the last twenty years attract mostly people looking for a prestigious property of recent construction. However, those looking for an exclusive home or estate with a large surface area and the best possible performance will focus their search in chic neighborhoods or districts of the North that boast breathtaking luxury villas. Another advantage of Montpellier is undoubtedly its proximity to seaside communities such as Palavas-les-Flots and La Grande-Motte, often chosen for the purchase of a second home on the sea.
