We discovered Sète a few years ago during a romantic weekend. Today, we are introducing our daughter to this little piece of paradise.
Today the sun is shining brightly. The ideal weather for a family day in Sète. First stop: the Museum of the sea, to help our daughter discover the history of the city, deeply linked to its maritime heritage.
Then we take a walk on the docks. The façades are colourful, the water smells like iodized water, you'd think you were somewhere else, thousands of kilometres away from home. We admire the trawlers, the boats with the charm of yesteryear, and we observe fish swimming in the canal. Impossible to resist all the restaurants with their lively terraces from which laughter escapes from all sides. The opportunity to taste a delicious cuttlefish rust, one of the local specialties that my husband and I are unable to resist!
At the beginning of the afternoon, we set off again for a digestive stroll to admire the sea from the breakwater, where waves covered with foam come to crash slowly. We have the pleasant surprise to discover that the Saint-Pierre site, right next to the majestic sea theatre, has been totally renovated. We take the opportunity to take a short break and, with the presence of our daughter as a pretext, to taste a good home-made ice cream.
Our walk continues along the barrier beach and we all savour the pleasure of being together, so close to home and yet so far away, with the deep blue as far as the eye can see...
