This review is long overdue. My husband and I stayed two nights at Les Balcons de Moliere in July 2013. Upon arrival to Meze, our GPS was unable to find the bed and breakfast; however, we were able to locate by walking around a bit. We were greeted by the host and his young daughter and introduced to the hostess as she was preparing for her evening meal. The host went with my husband to find parking and then assisted getting us settled in to our room - bringing us a cold soda to cool down in the heat! We stayed in Le côté de Guermantes room.. The room was romantic with a private balcony with an umbrella and a beautiful vine in bloom. Upon arrival we were given the option of French breakfast or heartier American fare. Having two mornings, we had both options and they were both delicious (and brought into our room by the couple)! Homemade jams, wonderful breads, a vase with a flower and note to have good day - this B&B catered to every detail and made the visit extra special with their attention to detail.
Each evening that we arrived back at the B&B, the couple handed us a chilled bottle of water as we ascended the stairs.
I do suggest that the B&B have a couple of fans on hand. Sleeping at night was a bit uncomfortable with no breeze coming in from the balcony. I also suggest to the travelers to bring earplugs. On a Saturday night, a club was booming music that echoed through the streets.
The hostess has nightly dinners on her balcony. While we did not reserve for either night, her food smelled delicious! We HIGHLY recommend this B&B to travelers!
FYI - They are fluent in English. This was very comforting to two Americans who do not speak French very well.
