As others have said - we almost missed the entrance to this old house hidden in the lanes of Montpellier behind large green painted wooden doors: they open into a cobbled courtyard...up the worn stone stairs to the most beautiful reception rooms with high high ceilings, original plasterwork and beautiful english wallpapers. We stayed in Pavots room (red black and white with a green and white vestibule of its own): it was warm (first weekend of December was very cold outside), surprisingly cosy and very comfortable - especially the unusual modern leather chair, the huge floor cushion and the bed. Slept right through both nights - rare for me staying away.
Breakfast (extra - but we knew this) was freshly squeezed orange juice, freshly cut fruit salad, yoghurts, french bread, croissants etc and the strongest of french coffees. Parfait!
As someone else says in their review - oozing history without trying but managing to juxtapose modern pieces of furniture with the family home perfectly.
Alain the host is very helpful and although he wasn't in when we arrived we were able to dump our bags following his instructions and go for a drink at one of the nearby cafes. Loved Monpellier...so unspoit.More
