According to IfoAppleStore, Apple has not only confirmed the existence of the long-rumored Carousel de Louvre Apple Store location but also announced the opening of a new, unexpected location in the university city of Montpellier.  Nestled along the Mediterranean Coast, Montpellier is home to 225,000 residents, and another 225,000 in the metro area, not to mention lots of tourists.  Have a look at the likely retail area, Place de la Comédie, below.  Not too shabby!

Update: A commenter points to the "Odysseum" a huge mall (ugh) in Montpellier.  We are still rooting for the Place de la Comédie location.  Maybe where that MacDo currently is.
