Around Sete


The 14 municipalities grouped within the "Sète agglopôle méditerranée" constitute the Archipelago of Thau. They share a remarkable environment, maritime and lagoon activities, very dense economic and cultural exchanges, as well as a common history and heritage.

Vineyards and shellfish.
Call in at the premises of the various producers of the Etang de Thau lagoon and sample the highly sought-after oysters in Bouziques. Frontignan and Mireval offer the sweet nectar of Muscat wine, Marseillan is the home of Noilly-Prat, and of course Picpoul de Pinet is made in…Pinet.

Villages to discover.
Balaruc-le-Vieux, Poussan, Gigean, Loupian and Montbazin... these villages, built in the typically Languedoc 'circulade' style, offer a remarkable historical heritage, from Roman villas to medieval abbeys and churches, as well as examples of the traditional architectural style of the wine-growing region.

A protected natural environment.
Between the sea and the hills lies a natural heritage of lagoons, sheer limestone ridges, and the robust vegetation of the garrigue scrubland. From the top of Gardiole mountain, you can look down on the de Thau and  Vic lagoons, a paradise for birdlife and biodiversity. 

The Archipelago of Thau lies at the heart of the Occitanie region, very close to Montpellier, and mid-way between Carcassonne and the Pont du Gard.
