The Languedoc-Roussillon region is blessed with over 300 days of sunshine each year. The beaches of the region are amongst the best in France with "blue flag" status and the beautiful blue Mediterranean.
The department of Herault is situated in the centre of the Languedoc region, with notable cities such as Montpellier and Beziers.
Herault has everything you could possibly want from a holiday destination, whether it's swimming in the sea , lake or inland rivers, visiting vineyards and museums, strolling around the markets or hopping on the train to visit some of the beautiful towns and cities nearby.
A few recommended day trips would be Avignon to see the Pope's Palace, the walled city of Carcassonne, the historic cities of Perpignan, Narbonne and Montpellier and the pretty town of Agde.
An information book is available in the apartment with tried and tested (many times) restaurants in Sete and nearby towns. Also, from exhaustive searches, I can recommend a number of local vineyards that you can call to and taste before you buy. There are local markets on nearly every day.
Sete is a very popular port town located on the Mediterranean. Known as the "Venice of Languedoc" , it has numerous canals running through it, an in-land lake to one side and the Meditteranean to the other.
Sete has it all!
Beautiful beaches (with restaurants open from Easter to October) within a few minutes of the town, theatres (including the open air Theatre de la Mer), museums (George Brassens, Paul Valéry and modern art), markets (Wednesday and Friday mornings), tours of the fish market, the inland lake and the canals of Sete.
The large tuna boats are beautiful to watch as they return to port in the afternoons with clouds of seagulls trailing after them. The boats are then docked along the quays so there is never a shortage of something to see.
The biggest festival in Sete is the Fête de St. Louis, usually in mid August when the jousting champion of the region is crowned. The jousting consists of 2 boats, manned by rowers, which row towards each other with a man on a platform at the back of the boat. Equipped with a shield and a metal tipped pole, they try to knock each other into the canal. At other times of the year there are numerous festival including the St. Pierre when all the boats go to see and throw flowers in the water and the Fête de la Biere towards the end of the summer.
Sete also hosts numerous music festivals including the Jazz festival in the open air theatre, the Worldwide Music Festival on the beaches.
