The Owners

Hospitable couple

For years we, Alex and Rick, have dreamed about starting a Bed & Breakfast abroad. Now this dream has come true. After a search through different regions in France we came by chance in the village of Melay. That is where we found our home Maison Egalité.

We both have great affinity with the hospitality industry. Rick once started in the hotel industry and is a host par excellence. Alex gained experience in several bars and restaurants. Until recently Rick organized international events for a large international company and Alex still has his own company and designs interiors for houses and catering establishments with great satisfaction of his clients.  It is not surprising that we have therefore taken the step to create our little paradise in Melay and share it with others.

Origin of the name Maison Egalité

After sparring with friends and research in the archives to discover the history of the village, we came up with the name Maison Egalité. Why? The street where our Maison is located, originally had the name Rue d’Egalité. Egalité is 1 of the 3 pillars of France and finally we regard égalité (equality) of paramount importance.

Together we want to give you and your family and/or friends a great time at our chambre d’hotes. Not only by offering you comfortable accommodation, but also by letting you taste the atmosphere of La douce France.
