Tips for living in Montpellier

Jump to last reply

Hi there, debut post! I've decided to move to Montpellier from Scotland and give it a minimum of 6 months to see how I enjoy it. I'm in the very early stages of planning this, but aim to move in 4 or 5 months ideally. I'm hoping other expats may be able to offer some tips on what to do to help settle in etc.

This is my situation in a nutshell:

I'll be working remotely with people back in the UK, so I don't necessarily have to find work in Montpellier (although I might try and eventually do that). From a social perspective this maybe isn't ideal, as I'll be working solo during the day. I'm sure I'd have to do it anyway, but even more so given my work situation, so any tips on good ways to integrate socially would be great.

I have a decent grasp of French but am nowhere near fluent - to become fluent is actually one of the attractions in moving. I'm taking French lessons now in the hope my conversational French will be enough for me to attempt to integrate when I get there.

I would be looking to find a reasonably priced room share (colocation?) in a lively part of the town. I've had a look at a few sites listing colocations and seems to be possible to get a basic room for 350-450 EUR per month. If anyone can offer any pointers on good sites to use/areas to look at, it would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks for any tips!
