Little Venice in Languedoc: Sète
To one side the blue of the lagoon, as smooth as glass; opposite the Mediterranean Sea: Sète has found itself a comfortable spot by the water. With its colourful facades, the canals and bridges, the harbour town is considered the “Venice of Languedoc”. A little further north, the charming university town Montpellier invites to explore its mixture of art, culture and culinary delights.

As the legendary town of lemons, Menton is living proof of how wonderfully sour “la dolce vita” can be.
