Every summer for the past 11 years, ILA’s French language students have told us how much they enjoy “Les Estivales” !

Les Estivales in Montpellier is a friendly moment to be shared every Friday evening, from July 10th to August 21st.

Our French language students love these warm Friday evenings in Montpellier. It is a great time to get together and enjoy the night out, with music, wine and food tasting and a night-time market ! A wonderful opportunity to discover the local wine and food tasting, encounters, the night-time market with over 150 merchants, artists, bookshops, products like ice cream, delicatessen, seafood, taps, and tasty treats…

And it is a free event !


Where is it?

On the Esplanade Charles de Gaulle (close to the Place de la Comédie) in the centre of Montpellier ! Lined with four rows of plane trees, the Esplanade Charles de Gaulle, shaded promenade, enlivened of taverns and glaciers, is a refreshing and relaxing stopover on the edge of the historic center.
