The attractive seaside town of Sète, south-west of Montpellier in the Herault department occupies a unique position on a long narrow strip of land between the Mediterranean and a long salt-water lake - the Bassin de Thau.


Sète itself clings to the base of Mont St Clair, an isolated rocky outcrop; at 180 metres the highest point for many kilometres. The town has several canals on which one can take a boat trip to appreciate the multi-coloured facades. The Canal du Rhone, an extension of the Canal du Midi, passes through the town.
