Mèze Things to Do

  • Human

    Early human at the Meze Museum on the Development of Man. The museum is to be found next to the Dinosaur Museum, the two museums share the same parking lot and entrance.

  • More eggs ...

    Most spectacular find, believe it or not, are these authentic dinosaur eggs, that have been found in situ (i.e. on this very spot).

  • Dinosaur with eggs!

    Dinosaur, this appears to be some kind of raptor, defending his or her eggs. To be seen at the Meze Dinosaur Museum.

  • Dinosaur Museum

    What to do at Meze? I know what we did, we visited the Dinosaur Museum and the Museum on the Development of Man. It was great fun! The two of us paid Euro 26 to be admitted to both exhibitions.

  • La Maison du Pêcheur

    La Maison du Pêcheur is a large restaurant managed by a family of fishermen. It stands near the bottom of the harbor, on the left. We had dinner several times in la Maison du Pêcheur and what I will show in my restaurant tip is not one dinner but several!

  • Mèze harbor

    Given that the water is shallow, the harbor of Mèze is only for local small boats and occasionally for a few shallow draught yachts like the catamaran on the far left of the first photo. The Bassin de Thau is not really the best place for sailing.

    La Maison du Pêcheur is a large restaurant managed by a family of fishermen. It stands near the bottom of the harbor, on the left.

    Favorite Dish: Photo 1. Zarzuella is the Languedoc counterpart of the Provence bouillabaisse. Sorry, it was so yummy that we began to serve and eat before I had taken the photo. In the beginning, the dish was full and was for two! Several kinds of fishes, mussels, shrimps and squids are cooked in a broth with tomatoes, saffron and other seasonings. It is served with boiled potatoes and (next photo)

    Photo 2 with garlic seasoned mayonnaise, grated cheese and grilled slices of bread.

    Photo 3 shows one serving. Each of us had several servings, one after the other from the main dish.

    Photo 4. “Plateau de fruits de mer” is an assortment of raw shells : oysters, mussels, venus shells and cooked shrimps.

    Photo 5. In “Plateau de fruits de mer chaud”, there are about the same shells but the oysters have been added with a cheese sauce and grilled, the mussels and other shells have been grilled with a mixture of butter, garlic and parsley. Half a tomato sprinkled with the same mixture is grilled, together with shrimps. It is delicious, as everything else!

Mèze Off The Beaten Path

  • Villa Gallo-Romaine de Loupian, 2

    The museum has on display artifacts that were dug out of the site. The villa was inhabited for 600 years, which means that along this period of time, there were several additions. However, they have made a model of the villa when it was at its best, with 1000 m2 of floor, which means that it was a large villa, dedicated mostly to wine making.

  • Villa Gallo-Romaine de Loupian

    Loupian is a small village with 1.500 inhabitants, 1.5 km north to Mèze. The outstanding “Villa Gallo-Romaine de Loupian”, though standing on the territory of Loupian is closer to Mèze than to Loupian village. It is actually just outside the city center of Mèze.A large Gallo-Roman villa was dug 30 years ago, along Via Domitia that connected Italy...
