If you are thinking about moving to Montpellier, cost of living in probably a key consideration. Expats commented about the cost of housing:

"They are somewhat cheaper than San Antonio, Texas, where we moved from. They have, however, gone up by at least 25% since we bought in the summer of 2000," explained one expat living in Montpellier.

We've partnered with Homelike, to connect expats and newcomers with temporary accommodations in France. If you're moving to France, rent a short-term, furnished apartment or home for the first few months from Homelike and take your time figuring out the best place to live in France.

What should I bring when moving to Montpellier?

Live in Montpellier? Answer this Question

People living in Montpellier were asked what three things they wish they had brought and three they wish they had left behind. They wrote:

"I wish I had brought ALL of my sewing things, ALL of our books, and my basket collection. I wish I had left some of our furniture behind because the houses here are much smaller than in the states. I wish I had left a lot of our clothes at home because the closets are much smaller here, and people wear the same clothes more often here. I also wish I had left some of my jewelry at home. I just don't wear it here," remarked another in Montpellier.

"More relaxed way of life, much better food and weather, load more cultural things to enjoy than there are in a UK city of similar size, Just prefer French and French people to the UK and British people," explained one expat.

What are the schools in Montpellier like?

"If you want an intimate, enriching environment for your children, with small classes and high teacher engagement, this is a good school.
