Apartment in Meze, Nr. Montpellier, Languedoc-Roussillon, France - Within 5 Minutes Walk Of Sandy Beach, Market And Restaurant
A newly renovated studio apartment in the heart of the narrow, atmospheric streets of Mèze, a beautiful Mediterranean harbour town twenty minutes from Sète and forty minutes from Montpellier. Mèze is small, down-to-earth and authentic, situated on the edge of a lagoon (l’etang du thau) and famed for its fresh seafood. Our apartment is roomy yet cosy, perfect for a couple. Four minute’s walk from the apartment is a perfect sandy beach. One minute’s walk from the apartment is a small u-shaped harbour, surrounded by restaurants. Even closer, you will find Mèze’s town square, with a twice-weekly market, full of the best French culinary delights. The area around Mèze is a contrast of beauty. The vineyards and their domains, many with restaurants, are a taste of the real South; the mountains with their gorges, rivers and idyllic villages, breathtaking; the city of Sète, vibrant and cosmopolitan. Then back to the beach!

About the Owner
Hello, we are an Anglo-French couple with three children who currently live in the UK. We fell in love with Mèze while on holiday and decided to buy a house there. It's been renovated with as much consideration as possible to the original features. Thanks for looking at our property.

Hidden gem in Meze
We agree wholeheartedly with the review by Kev T. The location we found to be ideal and the studio apartment suited us perfectly. We are planning a return soon.
We were met by the owner at the apartment and immediately made very welcome. The location in Meze is brilliant, only a few minutes from the harbour with its bars and restaurants and the town square for shops and super twice weekly market. Lovely clean beach too. The ground floor apartment was perfect for my wife and I, very clean and well appointed. Really glad we chose this apartment. Thanks Adrian Ann Blandine. A lovely holiday
Just add wine and cheese!
The apartment is tucked away in the old town; no tourists just locals for neighbours! It is ideal for a couple; clean, fully equipped and ideally situated between the harbour / beach and the main square, both 5 min away. Meze is a hidden gem; harbour surrounded by bars & restaurants, uncrowded beaches and a thriving market twice a week, plus, whilst we were there, live music in three different venues! All the normal requirements are catered for, supermarkets, general shops etc. A car is essential as the region has endless areas of natural beauty. Negatives? We had to come back!!
Activity and Interests
The apartment is 5 minutes walk from the beach. Mèze and the other beaches of l’etang du thau are all beautiful and child friendly. Sète (20 minutes drive) also has fine beaches, the waves can be a little stronger there. The harbours of Mèze, Marseillan and Bouzigues are all very pretty, and serve some truly excellent, fresh seafood. You can see the hundreds of oyster beds in the etang from Mèze, the area is famous for its seafood and wine.
The accommodation is within short driving distance of two airports. Beziers (25 minutes drive) is served by Ryanair, and Montpellier (30 minutes drive) is served by Easyjet. Use of car is strongly recommended, but not essential if you want to stay within Mèze as all amenities are within walking distance.
The city of Montpellier is 40 minutes drive, Sète is 20 minutes drive and well worth a visit. Nîmes is 90 minutes, Carcassonne 90 minutes, Toulouse 2 hours.
Within an hour's drive of Mèze are some incredible places to visit and breathtaking scenery. The village of Saint-Guilhem-le-Désert, a beautiful mountain village, is a must see, as is the Cirque de Navacelles. Have a swim in the cool waters of the streams that run through the village. Bracing! If you fancy a walk or a longer hike through scenic rock formations, go to the Cirque de Mourèze. A brilliant day out.
There are literally dozens of domaines and vineyards within 15 minutes of Mèze. They are great to visit, welcoming, and the wine, including the famous Picpoul de Pinet, is good quality and very reasonable.
