Travelling West from Montpellier towards Meze, one is greeted with the splendour of the Étang de Thau : the largest of a series of lagoons stretching from the Rhône River to the Pyrenees and the border to Spain in the Languedoc-Roussillon region.
Arriving in Meze the peace and serenity evoked by the stillness of the lagoon is immediately striking. This is truly a welcome break from city-living. Meze Maison is a beautifully renovated former 19th-century wine merchants townhouse discreetly situated in the centre of Meze. The harbour, castle gardens, restaurants and shops are all within a short walk from the hotel.
Venturing through the heavy wooden doors and ascending the candle-lit staircases of Meze Maison, one cannot help notice the classic elegance that surrounds. From the antique-inspired lighting, decorative flowers, to the high ceilings and exposed wooden beams, you know that you have entered a lovingly inspired place.
Arriving mid-afternoon for a brief rest in a luxurious king-sized bed at Meze Maison before enjoying an evening aperitif and walk to the harbour to watch the sunset, is the perfect way to start your stay here. In the morning, the traditional french breakfast is personally prepared by the hoteliers themselves, creating a home-like and warm atmosphere. With recommendations of places to see for the day from the owners, you will feel rested and ready to explore the area.
