Top 3 travel tips
Southwest of Sète, the Étang de Thau lagoon is a freshwater lake that was once fed by the sea but is now separated from it by a sandbank. Whether you want to relax here on one of the many wonderful sandy beaches, or rather take a ride on a boat across the waters, is of course up to you. And don't forget to try the excellent oysters grown here in the lake!2. One day in Montpellier
In contrast to many other French Mediterranean cities, Montpellier is comparatively "young" and was first mentioned in the 10th century. Around the old town there are numerous historic buildings that you can visit during a stroll: the cathedral Saint-Pierre or the tower of the former city fortification. In the afternoon you should secure a place in one of the street cafés by the "egg" - the egg-shaped Place de la Comedie, the unofficial centre of the city.3. Relax in Sète
You can feel a little like Venice in the pretty little harbour town of Sète, because instead of picturesque alleys, the town is crossed by numerous canals. There are numerous great fish restaurants and exceptional boutiques where you are guaranteed to find exceptional souvenirs of your holiday at the vacation rental in Hérault. And the clean sandy beach, which is located in the southwest of the village, is not only one of the most beautiful in the area, but also one of the quietest.
