Discover the small village of Mézel

Village de Mézel

Large peaceful market town, stretching right along the banks of the Asse, a river flowing in its pebble bed at the bottom of a broad valley - Mézel is worth a prolonged visit.
Once you've parked under the plane trees in the square, take a walk down the “Grand Rue”.

Fontaine à Mézel

You'll be astonished to discover a charming village, with attractive colourful façades, red with blue shutters for example, several picturesque fountains and basins, and above all, a considerable number of old doors, a century old or more.
In Mézel there is not a trace of its tormented past - saracens and religious wars. In this unpretentious village, life is good, to judge by the life style of the locals: sitting by their front door, taking lunch on their terrace or enjoying a barbecue in their gardens - surrounded by fig and olive trees, vines, lavender and climbing roses - all this while listening to hard rock at maximum volume !

Walkers will be tempted by the little shady path that climbs up to the rock where the chapel of Notre Dame du Rosaire stands.
From there, there is a fantastic view of the pleasant valley of Asse and the perfectly harmonious Roman tile roofs.
