Hello! We’re Mel and Nick, expats in Montpellier and founders of MontpellierLife. We created MontpellierLife to give anyone looking to study, work, and live in Montpellier an information resource. If you’re moving to Montpellier, or already here, we have lots of tips to ease the transition, from restaurants and things to do, to housing and banking.

We’ve lived in Montpellier for several years and have worked with other long-term expats to create the site. Between us we’ve made innumerable mistakes when moving to Montpellier, setting up bank accounts, finding work, and generally navigating our way through life in the south of France. By following tips on these pages hopefully you can live in Montpellier without the teething problems.

If you have any comments, criticism, suggestions for articles, or want to contribute please get in touch. We created the site to try and help people avoid pitfalls and make the most of their time in Montpellier so we’ll gratefully receive any feedback that can further this goal.

Thanks for your interest in the site and enjoy your time in Montpellier.

Mel and Nick
