Harbour at the Bassin de Thau
The lovely harbour of Mèze is set between land and sea at the edge of the Bassin de Thau, (8000 ha, 20 km long, 5m wide), a maritime environment dedicated to diving, fishing, water sports and swimming. Fishermen and oyster growers produce excellent seafood here (oysters and mussels) to enjoy with a lovely white wine during a warm summer evening.
Mèze is a typical village of the Languedoc, set at the Bassin de Thau. The quays of the harbour, with colourful fronts, have a real Mediterranean touch, with restaurants where you can taste the seafood and terraces with view on the fisherman’s boats for a lovely relaxing moment. You can also stroll around on the colourful and Mediterranean smelling markets held on the shady squares on Thursdays and Sundays, or visit the Gothic Saint-Hilaire church from the 13th century and the 12th century Chapelle des Pénitents.
