The Experience

Rob left a demanding job to turn this graceful 19th-century merchant’s house into an elegant, relaxed home. Stone stairs curve to two floors of bedrooms, soft with silvery colours, chandeliers and chic bathrooms. Balconies with French windows look over the town or gardens of the nearby château. Painted in the subtle hues of Farrow & Ball and beautifully beamed, the open-plan living space is coolly stylish: antique mirrors, books, oversize table lamps, and the kitchen is sleek, sociable and well-equipped – early evening apéritifs will be thankful for the ice dispenser and wine fridge. Ask Rob about day trips; explore harbours and beaches. If you stay for a week you’ll even be invited on their speedboat – perhaps topped off with a visit to one of their favourite waterside restaurants! Gentle hosts, serene surroundings.

Jean, Cornwall

Lovely house, hosts & welcome. We were in Mimi on top floor which was a luxurious room with a very comfy bed, roll top bath & sep shower and even beach towels in bag! The large communal first floor is a beautiful space with interesting books and feels like a home even for a short visit. The guys are great company if you want to chat and offer complimentary wine and tea & coffee and nibbles. They really have thought of everything in creating this gem and we enjoyed a lovely stay and look forward to returning.


Our third wonderful stay at Meze Maison--this time in peak season. The view over the chateau grounds from the Jojo was especially lovely. Rob offered his well-maintained bikes--rode on the terrific dedicated bike path nearly to Sete. Fresh and delicious breakfast--Rob provided a special sheep's yogurt and luscious melon. A new refinement--a chic lamp and stylish desk/chair--added yet another attractive convenience. Beaches were active but still plenty of room. Easy walk to lively Thursday market. Luxurious bed linens/towels; thick curtains help late sleepers. Easy parking. Highly recommend!

Superb getaway--from the gorgeous interior design to the sparkling hospitality. Rob and Jason are ultra accommodating and so much fun. Apero time is always delightful. This is our second visit in 10 months--can't wait to return. Stayed in the Louis for two days--oversized & hugely comfy bed with luxurious linens. Breakfast includes fresh fruit/cheeses and decadent pastries. You're sure to be spoiled.

Warm and informal - Rob and Jason were excellent hosts and helped us way beyond the call of duty with car problems. Their home is stylish and super-comfortable, and Meze a charming place to relax, swim and gorge on local seafood. Many thanks indeed for a wonderful start tour holiday!


It was an absolute pleasure dealing with Rob the owner in advance of our visit. A superbly restored and impeccably renovated building which Rob and Jason have decorated beautifully with great style. Whilst Meze itself may not have too much too offer, this lovely property is worth the stay there and its a central and convenient base for this lovely part of the south of France. Parking was arranged for us which made it so much easier. A word of caution, there are stairways that need to be negotiated! We liked the thoughtful complementary guest bar facility too.


Stunning hotel with fabulous hosts. We spent a week with Rob & Jason in Meze. We were welcomed with a glass of rosé and shown the exquisitely decorated salon which is for guests to use throughout your stay,complimentary soft drinks all day. Aperitifs & nibbles served daily from 6.30. We stayed in JoJo room with a super comfortable bed & a balcony overlooking the chateau. We had a dressing room with walk in shower. Meze is a lovely village with plentiful restaurants & beaches. We cannot praise rob & Jason enough,they are truly generous and made our stay in Meze the best holiday we have ever had


Exceptionally presented/decorated town house - fabulous bedding and towels - extremely generous host - home from home!

The neighbourhood

Local points of interest from Rob Budden

  • Mèze Maison is a 19th century wine merchant's house that used to belong to the local chateau de Girard. It sits in the centre of the old town overlooking the castle and its gardens, a short walk to all amenities.
  • L'étang de thau lagoon with opportunities for swimming, fishing, kayaking and sailing is less than a five minute stroll from the property. Book a week's stay with us and we will take you out on our speedboat, maybe to a waterside restaurant!
  • Mèze is home to a wide array of restaurants, many serving fish and shellfish from the l'étang de thau. The lagoon provides France with its renowned Bouzigues oyster which is often served with the local Picpoul wine.
  • Mèze is surrounded by vineyards, many of which produce award-winning wines. We can advise on which domaines to visit for wine tastings and tours.
  • Mèze is a short drive away from the medieval town of Pézenas, once home to the playwright Molière. The vibrant city of Montpellier with its leafy squares and wide esplanade is a 30 minute drive. Both have good bus links
  • Mèze has a daily indoor market and a twice weekly outdoor market (Thursdays and Sundays) selling local produce and arts and crafts. There is a local cinema which shows French and English language films. There is a weekly night market in the summer.
