DISCOVER THE NORTHERN VILLAGES OF SETE AGGLOPOLE MEDITERRANEE
The Thau Lagoon (known in French as “l’Etang de Thau”) is ideally situated in the heart of Languedoc, surrounded by history, culture, and natural beauty :
To the south, a quick drive or boat ride away, lies Sète—a canal-lined city with a proud maritime culture, and home to singer Georges Brassens and poet Paul Valéry.
To the west lies Marseillan, the final stop of the Canal du Midi (a UNESCO World Heritage site).
To the north lie Pézenas, the elegant city of Molière; Lake Salagou, a prime destination for hiking and water sports; and Lodève, a city dating back to the Gallo-Roman period.
All around the area, spectacular vineyards—such as those at the Abbaye de Valmagne—are a wine lover’s dream.
The cities of Montpellier and Béziers, each a 30-minute drive away, are convenient transportation hubs (airports, train stations) that offer cosmopolitan attractions.
Boasting beautiful Mediterranean beaches, charmingly preserved villages, high-quality vineyards, historic thermal baths, and six golf courses within a 45-minute drive, the villages of the Etang de Thau provide an ideal starting point for discovering the region at your own pace, and according to your own tastes.
