See my profile. Although it is a very small piccy.

I loved our Montpellier. Was in tears when I realised we had ripped the canvas (cross between a stubborn hubby and very very strong winds). Attwools quoted 150 for repairs so we bought a newer similar version second hand - The AThena. Not yet been out in it to compare though.

The Montpellier is HUGE!! There are 2 bedroom tents. One sleeps 4 with a divider if you wish - we used ours as the Master Suite LOL. Lots of room for double airbed and suitcases and standing room to change. The other bedroom tent is a rather roomy 2 berth. It is slightly larger than on my new Athena. Our kids have 1 single airbed and one on a steel framed camp bed. Little bit of space between but not much. Between the 2 bedrooms is a hanging rail - which again is slightly longer than on my new Athena. We use this for towels, and handing those collapsable shelves.

The kitchen extension is in the mid section of the tent, close to the smaller bedroom. Has a mesh ventilated window and a frosted flap you can roll up. Mine had zips eaxh side, so was nice and secure in wind etc. 

Opposite the kitchen extension Outside the Master Suite (mid section of tent) is the side entance.  You can roll it up there are little tabs to hook it on or if it comes with the side awning poles it makes a lovely small side sun canopy.

The front section on mine had 3 windows. One each side and one at the front, so this is a lovely bright and light tent. The door is obviosuly at the front and you can also rolls up the front as well when its stonking hot. 

It should come with roof lining and curtains although my curtains were pretty goppy but we have tolerated them.  There are even tie backs for the curtains. 

This is a lovely large tent. Ideal for family breaks. Would highly recommend.

Any questions please ask. Would like to add. You can seriously peg down this tent and we have stood firm in some atrocious weather when other have been ripped and blown away.  She may creak in severe gales but she never budged.

Would email more piccies but sadly they are on our hard drive which is broken and currently away being fixed.

IMO - you should go for it.

I have brought a cabanon and I think it is a Montpeller it has numbers on the bottom of the bedrooms M395b and M395A.

there are pics on my profile, i do not appear to have a roof lining but i do have what i thought was a groundsheet which appears to be the same material as the debroom bottom/floor this sheet has eylets around it.

also on my profile is some extra poles no idea what they are for, a Y section with 3 poles coming off (adjustable) 1 has a clip to fit over a pole and the other 2 has a nylon eye/hole.

can any one help identify my model and whether it should have a roof lining and tell me what the extra poles are for??

Hi carl, Nice looking tent. Heres a montpelier on ebay

no idea what the spare poles are for , but the waterproof sheet will be the groundsheeet.

don't worry about not having a roof lining, its not essential, but they can help keep the tent warmer or cooler.

they are just made of thin cotton. like bedsheets.

 If you really wanted to you could make one yourself using sheets or duvet covers with the seams opened out. The roof lining just goes on the front part of the tent ceiling, not above the bedroom inners. Then attach it to the roof poles using clips like you have on the bedroom inners , available cheaply from camping shops, or ebay.

When we had our frame tent, we never used he roof lining at all as it covers the roof poles , and we used to hang things off the poles.

Just returned from the Loire area of France. I used my Cabanon Montpellier frame tent for the first time in 10 years. I cannot recommend these tent enough, 40 degrees heat followed by a night of rain, no issues at all. My wife has not camped before and loved it totally. I must say that the extra canopy was a godsend as we could even light our small barbecue when there was a chance of rain & everybody else was stuck inside. I'll try posting some photos....
