Plan your journey around MontpellierMontpellier, located in the south-west of France, is a city that combines French chic with a uniquely Catalonian influence. Taking in the atmosphere of the city is relaxing enough, but there is also plenty to do for travellers who want to experience the local culture.
Architecture enthusiasts will appreciate the Antigone district, brimming with neo-classical buildings. Designed by Ricardo Bofill, a Catalonian architect, the sheer scale of La Place du Nombre d'Or and the extravagant Hotel Mercure are sure to impress.
Montpellier is a shopper's dream, whether you want to haggle at market stalls or purchase one-of-a-kind items in boutique shops. The Sunday flea market is a popular destination for locals and tourists alike, but Montpellier really comes into its own with its selection of specialist stores – from vintage bookshops through to a retailer that exclusively sells medieval crafts.
At night, Montpellier's streets become a hub of social gatherings. Head to the Place de la Comédie where you will find a number of cafes with outdoor seating areas. Take a seat and see the evening through in true Montpellier style.

Perpignan is the capital of the Pyrénées-Orientales department, and, at less than two hours from Montpellier, it is the perfect springboard for exploring Northern Catalonia in France. The Palace of the Kings of Majorca dates back to the 13th century and offers an impressive vantage point of the snow-capped Pyrenees. Be sure to check out the Arab and Romany quarter where you can purchase freshly made baklava and sip on north African coffee.
The closest sea port to Montpellier, Sète, is just 45 minutes away with your hire car from Montpellier Airport. With 35km of unspoilt beach, this is the place for sandcastle building and evening beach strolls. Home to oyster and mussel beds, Sète is also an ideal spot for a fresh seafood dinner. And as this town is a real working port, you'll get an authentic sense of what working life in the region is really like on your trip.
