First half goals by Pereira da Silva Everson and Lilian Laslandes gave Nice a 2-0 half time lead.
Habib Bamogo scored a penalty with four minutes remaining in the match to give the visitors a consolation goal but it was not enough in the end, as Montpellier stay in the bottom half of the table.
In the other match on Sunday, Le Mans moved level on points with fellow strugglers Guingamp after a 2-0 victory at the Stade Leon-Bollee.
The home side earned three valuable points with goals from Daniel Cousin and Philipe Celdran.
The result still leaves both sides in the relegation zone and tied with 14 points each - a point off safety in the French League table.
