The Languedoc-Roussillon region
Home of the Cathars, steeped in history and new Roman remains in Loupian discovered giving colourful history to the town of Meze. Well situated to go inland (one hour's drive) to St Guillaume le Desert, the new Viaduct, and situated equi-distant between Barcelona and Nice. Avignon is less than an hour away as is St Maries de la Mer. For those who enjoy a drive Carcassonne is 1.5 to 2 hours drive and there is very little traffic on the motorways. Marseille is a similar distance to the East and well worth a visit or you will not be disappointed by staying in Meze where you will be warmly welcomed.
Known for its conchyliculture and viticulture (sea food and wine) Meze is in the heart of the Oyster bay in the South West of France. It is surrounded by over 500 vineyards and fish lovers will think they have died and gone to heaven! The port is surrounded by outdoor restaurants serving every kind of fish with a speciality of oysters, mussels, sea bream, dorade, monkfish, etc. The occasional pizza restaurant is in evidence for those who prefer it. Meze is a natural picturesque fishing port situated on the Bassin de Thau in the region of l’Herault. It has a population of 20,000, a tourist office to update you of all its local festivities which abound in the months of July and August – jousting amongst its favourites. There is live open-air music and dancing, a historic parade, fun fairs and craft fairs to name but a few of the summer fetes.
The house is situated on the edge of the local square which provides a fresh produce market twice a week with local grown fruit and vegetables, olives etc. - a gourmet’s paradise. The square has two very ‘French’ bars shaded from the sun where the locals pass their time sipping Pastis before siestas. A covered market is open all week with fresh fish of every kind, as well as a variety of the much loved cheeses of the region and freshly ground coffees.
