Flatshare in Montpellier center

Divided into 8 well-known sub-neighborhoods, the city center of Montpellier is very pleasant to walk around. With the river Lez which passes through the very popular Antigone district and inspired by Greek architecture, the famous Place de la Comédie in the Gambetta district or the Beaux-Arts district and its small bohemian village spirit, the whole center of Montpellier is propitious to get lost and to stroll between roommates. However, these neighborhoods are among the most expensive in the city, although the price of real estate in Montpellier remains moderate. 

Shared accommodation in Montpellier Croix-d'Argent

Made up of 3 sub-neighborhoods, Croix-d'Argent is a mainly residential, agricultural and commercial area. It is therefore not the best neighborhood to live in if you are still studying, but as a young professional, your workplace could well be in Croix d'Argent! Another advantage is that these 3 sub-districts are very affordable and quiet.

Shared appartment in Montpellier les Cévennes

Just like the Croix d'Argent district, the 3 sub-districts of Cévennes are also among the least expensive in the city. However, they have fewer shops. This neighborhood is mainly residential and will suit roommates looking for calm in a big city.

Student housing in Montpellier Mosson

Also composed of 3 sub-neighborhoods, only one is recommended: the Celleneuve neighborhood with its warm village spirit. The districts of Paillade and Haut de Massane are to be avoided because of their bad reputation.

Flatshare Montpellier Hôpitaux-Facultés

Parks, transportation, bars, schools and nightlife summarize the 3 sub-neighborhoods of Hôpitaux-Facultés. Particularly appreciated by students for its nightlife and its green spaces, this neighborhood could be of interest to you if you want to party or if you are studying. This attractiveness and comfort of life explain the average rent in the area, which is among the highest in the city.

Student accommodation Montpellier Port Marianne

Beloved by the inhabitants of Montpellier, the Port Marianne district is divided into 4 very modern, even futuristic, sub-districts. There are plenty of housing and shops, and the rent is still moderate. Moreover, this neighborhood is the one in Montpellier that is closest to the sea. It is definitely a district of the future in which to live as a roommate! 

Flatshare Montpellier Prés d'Arènes

In the south of the city and close to Port Marianne, the Près d'Arènes neighborhood is also very close to the sea. Mainly residential, it is also very affordable and serves the whole city thanks to the public transport which serves many places in the capital of the Hérault. Although mainly family-oriented, this very quiet neighborhood is next to Croix d'Argent, which could be suitable for young professionals.
