Property in Meze - A Guide to Meze

Property in Meze.

Meze is a charming village set along the banks of the Etang de Thau on the Mediterranean coast. Meze has undergone it’s fair share of development over the years and so Meze property now offers quite a bit of variety.

The old town, with it’s pretty market square and narrow streets is lined with many different types of village houses. Some very small and narrow, some double fronted and rather grand looking. Some with garages and some without. But all these different types of Meze property have one thing in common. They are all different! That is to say that unlike a typical Victorian street in a UK town or city where all the houses look the same, all the houses in Meze old town have been built differently. It’s only by going and looking inside that you can really see what each house offers.

Some houses look nothing from the outside but large wooden garage doors open to reveal the most magnificent courtyard with mature palms and perhaps even a swimming pool. Village houses will often have a roof terrace hidden away as well. Out of sight from the street below.

Property outside Meze’s old town is more uniform. With suburban looking streets housing modern town houses and villas seeming to date from around the 1950’s. Newly built “Lotissements” (Housing developments) can also be found, with modern villas and town houses that offer a present day flavour to an otherwise old world setting.

The Etang de Thau that lies between Meze and the well known fishing port of Sete is a 20km long inland sea where some of the best Oysters and Mussels in the world can be found. All you have to do is stop pretty much anywhere in Meze to be presented with various small independent producers offering fresh catch of the day. A kilo of fresh oysters will set you back somewhere approaching 5€.

One of the advantages of owning a holiday home in Meze is the proximity to the A9 motorway. Less than 10km gets you onto the motorway, where a quick 15 minute drive will see you at Montpellier airport, where daily flights to and from the UK are currently offered by British Airways and Ryanair.
