Montpellier is a city in southern France, located on the coast on the Mediterranean Sea and capital of the Languedoc Roussillon region. Montpellier is the 8th largest city of France and the fastest growing city in the country over the past 25 years.

Along the shores of the Mediterranean Sea in southern France, Montpellier has everything it takes to please. A lively and surprising city in the heart of the Languedoc-Roussillon region, Montpellier is vibrant, elegant and artistic. People are drawn here by the city’s rich past, former and contemporary glory, intense cultural life and youthful feel.
Its sunny climate and well-preserved historical environment are second to none, nestled between the sea, vineyards and mountain landscapes.

Montpellier is served by A9 and A75 motorways, the “Montpellier Méditerranée International airport” which is 8 km from downtown, and the Montpellier Saint-Roch train station located just 200 meters from downtown’s central “Place de la Comédie”.
