Montpellier is the 7th largest city in France and is a wonderful place of inspiration. 

From its medieval streets to new neighbourhoods combining natural spaces and buildings and the most modern tram system in the world.

It’s certainly a fabulous place for me to be staying in a wonderfully cosy apartment in the city centre looking after two cats… Grisly Bear (Gris) and Bradley Wiggins (Brad).  Don’t you just love their names ? 

During this assignment, it is fair to say that I was fortunate to experience every possible weather condition.  

When I arrived there were beautiful sunny days and coolish nights.

But then, whilst it doesn’t normally snow in Montpellier, France was hit by the most extreme Siberian weather bringing with it temperatures of -12 degrees Celsius and severe snow storms.  It was indeed magical to see this wonderful city turned into a winter wonderland.

What the owners had to say:

Anthony was absolutely fabulous.

The cats seemed delighted and the house was beautiful when we returned.
All communication was very easy and we felt very assured that things were safe in our absence.

We had a number of things going against us - the first snow in Montpellier in decades, for a start, leading to very uncertain transport times - and he dealt with these with initiative and intelligence, and everything went off perfectly.

And Anthony also showed us how to turn off the incredibly annoying sound on our washing machine, for which I will forever be grateful!

A million thanks, Anthony!
