About Maison de Thau

A stylish nest on the ramparts of an ancient fishing port, with sparkling lagoon views from a top-floor living area

The winding, flower-scented streets of Mèze lie midway between medieval Montpellier and sandy Mediterranean beaches at Sète and Marseillan.

This once-upon-a-time white fisherman’s house stands three storeys high on the old town’s ramparts, overlooking the sparkling Étang de Thau with its oyster beds.

Scamper up to the top level, where an open-plan living/dining area with a comfortable sofa bed for two and modern kitchen gleam in the light from a huge window overlooking the water.

Crack open the wine and nibbles, then head down a floor to the intimate bedroom – flowing white curtains, cotton sheets and wooden floorboards – and adjoining salon.

Tiny but perfectly formed, the salon has a big mirror to multiply space and light, and French windows opening out to a balcony where you can toast the view (again).

It’s all deliciously intimate, from the narrow stairs to the tiny shower room, but there’s room for six at the dining table.

The quiet cul-de-sac is steps away from the bustle of Mèze’s covered market, and from the fishing boats that bring your dinner to the seafood restaurants lining the lagoon.

Location and Map

This marker is for indication purpose only

Mèze has 2 lovely sandy beaches. As Mèze sits on the lagoon the waters are calm and warmer than the nearby Med, perfect for a good swim or a paddle. Cool off and have a drink at the beach bar, take in the panoramic view looking over the lake towards Sète.

The jewel in Mèze’s crown is surely its beautiful port. The little harbour is lined with restaurants offering freshly sourced seafood perfect for a balmy evening of alfresco dining.

For the wine lovers out there, Mèze provides the ideal base for an afternoon of vineyard touring. From the historic Abbey de Valmagne to quirky local producers, just ensure you have a designated driver!
Never forget that the beautiful Mediterranean sea lies just beyond L’Etang de Thau. You can see the horizon from the kitchen window!

The Med is definitely cooler than the lake in Mèze but nothing says the south of France more than a dip in the cool blue water and then chilling for lunch in one of the many pop-up beach clubs that line this special uncrowded piece of paradise.

Further afield why not visit medieval Pezenas? A gentle drive through vineyard country, Moliere is famed to have lived here once but for now why not get lost wandering around its pretty streets or visit its many "brocantes" on the main road?
