La Maison à Sète

Sete, Hérault

Restful, light-filled apartments in old townhouse facing the canal and within walking distance of museums, restaurants, bars, beaches


4 bedrooms


Sleeps 8


You can sally forth with ease around the ‘Venice of the Languedoc’ from these apartments in an 1890s canal-side townhouse with olive green windows and doors. The first floor has a classic feel with wooden floorboards, cream sofas, lots of books, big paintings and a balcony for boat watching. Those higher up feel more contemporary – a cow hide rug, colourful retro kitchen chairs, interesting artwork. Bedrooms are all different but come in restful hues – beiges, oranges, browns and greys – and have new mattresses with white or lightly patterned soft cotton bedding; bathrooms are modern with no windows and walk-in showers. You’ll be keen to explore: Sète is a bustling sort of place, squeezed between the sea and a saltwater lagoon with wonderful swimming and sailing (boat hire just a few steps away from the building), and sandy beaches you can walk to. There’s a strong cultural identity here too with thriving weekly markets and plenty of fish to eat – this is the largest fishing port on France’s Mediterranean coast – try Bourride de Lotte à la Sètoise, monkfish stew or La Teille Sètoise – octopus pie!

The neighbourhood

Local points of interest from Sophie Falco

  • Located on a quay a stone's throw from the city center, the Halles typical of Sete and the royal canal where the tournaments of jousts take place.
