Yes! In this Top 5 there is also enough room for a Food Truck! The concept is very atypical and most of all interesting: who else offers Risottos and Burgers? The street food concept is becoming more and more popular, seducing Montpellier residents for a relaxed meal at an unbeatable price/quality ratio. Opened in 2014 by a young chef, the R&B offers a kitchen with personality: local products, fresh and cooked daily in the truck! Discover directly on their website where to find this magnificent food truck!

#5- Umiyaki

If you’re looking for a perfect decile for your taste buds, visit Umiyaki, one of the best Japanese restaurants in Montpellier! Located at 9, rue de la Friperie, this small Japanese restaurant offers authentic and tasteful cuisine, all at a very affordable price – perfect for small budgets. The owners, a Japanese couple, are very welcoming and will not fail to advise you their best specialities! And for once, no sushi! So go take a look and enjoy a very relaxed atmosphere.

A furnished and equipped flat-share in a historical monument!

In Montpellier, we found and furnished some unique and historical buildings. If you like unconventional apartments with a unique architecture and decoration, you would definitely love this one which is very different from the classic apartments. Today, we present you a two-floored flatshare that will seduce even the most demanding ones. With its history and unique charm, this flatshare will certainly captivate your imagination.

First, a bit of history. The flat-share in Montpellier is located in an unique building which has been classified as “historical building of France” by the Minister of Culture. The building used to be the private mansion and workshop of Edouard Lefèvre, a decorator, sculptor and ornamentist who built it at the end of the XIX century (around 1880). He is also Marius Toudoire’s stepfather – the architect who designed the Gare de Lyon in Paris.

An historical building 

The facade #1

Before you even get to enter the building, the north facade will make you gasp. It consists of wonderful windows with baluster balconies. The facade is adorned with carved panels representing bucolic landscapes. We talk about an unconventional building and a real treat for the eyes!

The hall #2

In the main entrance hall, just below the staircase, observe also the painting representing a charming country scene. The wooden staircase is also adorned with a large stained window designed by Gustave Pierre Dagrant – a famous glass painter from the XIX century. How many of us can say to live in such a place?

Chez Nestor’s flatshare in this building

The kitchen/living room #1

The apartment is modern and was entirely refurbished by our teams. The living room boasts an elegant wooden parquet and two large windows. The fitted kitchen is thus extremely bright and entirely equipped with dishwasher, oven, vitroceramic hotplates and a large fridge. This room is perfect for relaxing with your housemates!



Bathrooms and WC #2

The apartment boasts two spacious bathrooms and two separated WCs. This is a big plus for the apartment and adds a lot of comfort for you and your housemates. No more waiting for your turn in the morning!

The bedrooms #3

The bedrooms are simply breathtaking. Spacious and cosy, they boast high ceilings and wooden parquets. Find your peace in there, whether it be for studying or resting far from your housemates.



Take a look at this picture – nice isn’t it? The decoration of this cosy bedroom will remind you of a noble castle from the XIX century! It is pretty unique!
