Loking for any information on Meze, France. I will be staying a week in June 2008.
Have had lunch there several times over the years and last visited in May 2007. Those villages along the Bassin de Thau such as Meze,Marseillan = very pretty harbour, and town of Sète are worth visiting. We stayed in Sète and overdosed on fish & seafood.We know the Minervois very well and love the wines. This was a small detour and Sète is my favourite place now along the coast.If you want tips on eating in Meze I can expand.Suggest ( obviously) that you Google Meze, France and look at some nice photos on 2nd entry.We may even be there in June if oil remains below $1000 a barrel.
Thanks for your reply. I would appreciate your suggestions on dining.How did you get to this town? We will be flying from Malaga and I suppose Montpellier is the closest airport.
OK - Montpellier is also a very attractive city and worth spending time there.Look it up. We drove to Meze from England as usual in our estate car, the better to import wine for our cellar ( OK, understairs cupboard ). I imagine that Montpellier would be best airport and pretty close by. I trust you will have a hire car ? Restaurants in Meze are many and varied and will change as years go by.If you are a non-smoker, you will find new anti-smoking laws, in force in France now, to your liking.Our favourite place is Restaurant du Port or Chez Fady (same place) with red awnings in centre of port pretty much looking straight down the harbour. Ten years ago, you could park in front of the restaurant, harbour side, and watch your car, but last May this was roped off. Parking is tricky but try down by the sea front and you may need to wait for someone to move out. Try to avoid visiting on market day if you want to get through narrow streets to port! Anything else ? if you look at my travel map you will see that we've been through France a few times and I speak da lingo man.
Mezes is one of a number of small villages on Etang de Thau that are worth visiting.
There are no direct flights Malaga - Montpellier. In fact there are no direct flights from Montpellier to Spain, so you would need to go via London or Paris. Via Paris involves AF, so probably not cheap.
Nearest direct flight is to Marseille with Ryanair.
Whilst in Mezes, it is worth visiting the next door village of Bouzigues. Bouzigues is a favourite lunch spot for locals and you need to book restaurants at the weekend, even in winter.
