Le Bookshop – Montpellier, France

Hi guys! Today I’m introducing you to a new category on the blog. Actually, it’s something I started way back, when I created Drizzle & Hurricane Books in December. (you can check out my first article about a bookshop in Paris). I’m now exploring new possibilites with this category. Let’s see what I got in stores for you! ๐Ÿ™‚

Today, I’m taking you for aย tour ofย an English-specialized bookshop, in Montpellier, France. I went there on holidays this week, and couldn’t pass by this place without entering. I didn’t regret it, at all. English-language bookshops are too rare in my country, so I was really thrilled to find out that, in this lovely southern city, I could find a gem like that. They say a picture is worth a thousand words sometimes, so, let’s go on tour!

The lovely street where “Le Bookshop” is located. Right in the historical center of Montpellier, but yet away from the swarm of the tourists.
This atypical place takes you downstairs for more surprises, and more books. But first...did you check out these awesome walls?!

Welcome to the YA section of the bookshop, what you were all waiting for. Beautiful shelves, and still those amazing stone walls, making us feel like we're in a whole other universe.

Chairs and tables, to rest and chill out with a book, or sit across someone and talk about a story that left a mark.

  2. This is going to be such a cool series, Marie!

    And I would totally visit this bookshop. I mean what bookstore would I not? When there’s books there are readers. ๐Ÿ˜‰ But I really love the look of this one, with the stone (I think it’s stone anyway) pillars and everything. Thank you for sharing with us!
