Le Mas de Lafeuillade, located in the Richter district, is close to Antigone, the city centre, the exhibition centre, the Zénith arena. Whether on foot or by bike (on-site bike hire), it’s ideal for discovering Old Montpellier with its narrow alleyways and New Montpellier with its buildings from internationally-renowned architects.
Less than 10 minutes by bike from Le Mas:
Discover the Place de la Comédie, Montpellier’s beating heart. One of the largest pedestrian zones in Europe, the square is dominated by the Opéra Comédie theatre, constructed in 1899 after the Opéra de Paris. At the centre of this square, you’ll discover the beautiful Trois Grâces fountain, sculpted by Etienne Dantoine in 1773. Watch the city come to life in the square, then lose yourself in the nearby medieval alleyways. Here you’ll find lovely shops - designers, antique shops, galleries, tea rooms - all with vaulted ceilings.
Nearby also lies the Musée Fabre. Housed in a beautiful building, discover one of the greatest fine art collections in Europe, with works ranging from the Renaissance to the present day, and a wing dedicated to the renowned contemporary artist Pierre Soulages.
Montpellier is also a first-rate destination for lovers of contemporary architecture. Le Mas de Lafeuillade is perfect for discovering the city’s most colourful districts, the vast majority of which are accessible on foot or by bike. Port Marianne, lit up as night falls, features several wonders of design; there’s the Hôtel de Ville, the great town hall conceived by architects Jean Nouvel and François Fontès; le Nuage, a brilliantly eccentric, colour-changing building (one of the first inflatable buildings in Europe), designed by architect Philippe Starck; and across from that, the RBC Design Center, a brilliant designer boutique and contemporary furniture store. Then discover L’Odysseum, a unique leisure complex. Here, you’ll find a cinema, ice-skating, an aquarium, shops, a fitness centre, themed brasserie and more. Lastly there’s the Antigone district, close to Le Mas, where you can feel like you’re stepping back in time.
