Sète is located in the South of France, on the Mediterranean coast, in the department of the Herault and the Languedoc-Roussillon area. Sète is the most fascinating small town on the French Mediterranean coast precisely because it doesn’t go out of its way to be charming. It doesn’t have the time. This is an attractive – but serious – port full of working people with stuff to ship out and turbot to sell.
