Imagine the scene ... a sleepy, sunny Sunday in southern France. A little too much vin rouge in Saturday night? Well, what better way to spend your time than by taking a stroll through Place de Peyrou in Montpellier, a large open space lined either side with trees that provide welcome shade from the powerful sun. During the summer months, there are impressive flower beds, too.
The view from the fountain (at the far end of Place de Peyrou) is breath-taking and even amateur photographers can come away with striking snaps of the aqueduct, hills, winding streets below and so on.
The Arceaux area (down the steps from Peyrou) hosts an impressive market on Sundays, with an abundance of fresh, local produce. You're guaranteed some fun and friendly banter, too. There's plenty of choice and it's always bustling without being too crowded. Why not stock up on food at the market then go for a picnic?
Voilà my perfect French Sunday!
From Place de la Comédie, take Rue de la Loge, continue onto Rue Foch (past the arc de triomphe) and Place de Peyou is right in front of you!
