Canal du Midi
Sète, the ideal holiday destination!
It was the opening of the Canal du Midi to the Mediterranean in the 17th century that gave birth to the pretty little port of Sète, one that has lost none of its charm or its traditions! A camping holiday at Sète on the Bassin de Thau means endless summer days to the rhythm of lazy bathing, walks and bike rides, cultural visits and fun festivals, in every shape and form. There won’t be a dull moment in sight!
In addition to exploring all the splendour of Sète, your campsite stay in Occitanie promises a fabulous range of activities and luxury services: bathing in the heated swimming pool and speeding down the waterslides, outdoor activities and sports, shows and themed evenings... plus a host of other entertainment to discover as the days go by! After a good night’s sleep in your mobile home or under the canvas of your tent, you’ll have all the leisure you want to explore the most beautiful spots around the Etang de Thau, each with its own special treasures to reveal!
Visit Sète with the family
Head for the harbour in Sète to join the jousters, sample the local cuisine right at the water’s edge or walk in the footsteps of Brassens, one of France’s favourite singers... Make Sète your own for an incredible day with all the family!
From the fishing port treat yourselves to a picturesque trip along the canals, or join the sea front and its 12km of glorious pale sand. Which of the beaches will you prefer: Fontaine, Baleine or Corniche... The Sète Lido will spoil you for choice. By bike, let the sea breeze carry you away for a ride around the Etang de Thau, where Mèze, Bouzigues and Marseillan await you en-route for a delectable break or a quick photo call to capture all the beauty of the landscape!
Visit Sète as a couple
After a gorgeous morning on the beach, a seafood platter on the quayside and a wander around the Regional Contemporary Art Museum, it’s time to discover a totally different side to Sète!
From the town centre, take the pretty path that leads up to the top of Mont Saint-Clair, the highest point of the town. From the summit, stand back and admire the sublime 360° panorama over the Bassin de Thau and its infinite palette of beautiful colours! Starting to feel a little too warm in the sunshine? Cool off with a romantic visit beneath the vaulted ceiling of the Notre-Dame-de-la-Salette chapel and its multicoloured frescoes.
