Sete has been referred to as the "Venice of Languedoc", and perhaps with good reason. The largest French fishing port on the Mediterranean, it is also the terminus of the Canal du Midi. Sete is known as a center for sailing and yachting and has been the base for the Sailing Tour de France as well as America's Cup training. Miles of uncrowded beached beckon sunbathers, swimmers and beachcombers, and have been the inspiration for a number of poets. If you feel the need for a change of pace, rent a car and drive to one of the larger resorts on the coast. Auto Europe offers several pick up locations and a large rental car fleet, so finding a car rental in Sete is both easy and economical.
Sete has always looked to the sea for its living, and that focus is celebrated throughout the town. Almost totally destroyed in World War II, Sete has been reborn with a harbor that now hosts both the local fishing fleet and international yachts. Destinations such as the Pont du Gard, Carcassonne and Montpellier are less than 90 minutes from Sete with a rental car. Two festivals in Sete warrant special note; the festival of St. Pierre, patron saint of fishermen, and the festival of St. Louis which culminates in nautical jousting.
