This house lies in Sète, a town in Petite Camargue in the south of France. It is 100 meters from a salt bathing lake, the "Etang de Thau", which communicates with the sea. It is only 2 km from the sea, 30 km from the university city of Montpellier and 20 minutes from the "Ile de loisirs de Cap d'Agde". A fishermen's town, Sète triples its inhabitants in summer because of its wonderful sea, its strategic position between Provence and Spain, Camargue and history. The seaside is about two kilometers from the house, and the sandy coastline spreads out over 12 kilometers
Located in the residential area of Le Barrou, with view on the "Bassin de Thau", the house is articulate on two floor.
The house is very extended. At ground flor there is a very large living room, in double volume, the kitchen, two separated double bedroom, a bathroom and a store-room.
At the first floor there is another living room with view on the ground floor, with a sofa bed, a separated double bedroom and a bathroom.

The house can comfortly hosts 8-9 persons.

Sète is a town with a lot of tourist facilities such as restaurants and bar on the pier. There are several local events (boat competitions on the channel and musical events such as the Jazz Festival, concerts and so on). The permanent arabic markets and the weekly ones are extremely interesting.
It is quite easy to reach Sète as it is an important French port and a
tourist town where a lot of people arrive every year. The A9 highway runs along the French coast and is only few kilometers from the town.The railway station is only 5 minutes from the city centre. You can easily reach Paris and other interesting national and foreign resorts from this station.
You can reach Montpellier airport in only 20 minutes by car.
The price is for six people. For each additional person (up to 9), add €7 per day during the low season and €10 during the high season (July and August).
An additional sum of €5 per day must be paid from November to March for the heating. If you stay more than 2 weeks you can choose to pay the real consumption taken from the counter.
Grande maison à deux pas de l'étang de Thau, belle hauteur sous plafond, tous les ustensiles pour faire la cuisine.
It was very nice to stay at this house which was quite big with a very nice garden. Rooms were clean and bright. There were everything we needed including extra linen and fully equipped kitchen. Neighborhood was very calm and actually we haven't met neighbors except on our arrival. The city center and the beach is in about 3 km distance. Thank Serena for hosting us, we would recommend the house for a nice vacation.
We stayed in this house during our sabbatical year, and it was truly a fabulous experience. The caretakers live in the adjoining duplex, and they are as kind and warm as can be. (Note: The couple speaks only French, and with a thick Setois accent.) We were 2 adults and 3 children (2 teens and 1 preschooler), and I can attest to the family-friendliness of the house. There is a basic playground very close by. The bakery and epicerie (small grocery store) are within walking distance, and the enclosed backyard is very conducive to child-friendly activities. The street is quiet and has plenty of parking. (I wouldn't bother with parking inside the enclosure; it's too much of a hassle.) Overall, two enthusiastic thumbs up for this home.
La maison est très bien, spacieuse, lumineuse, dans un quartier résidentiel à 1.5km du centre ville de Sete. Nous avons été bien accueilli par les voisins. Le jardin est grand et permet de garer 3 à 4 voiture facilement. la terrasse permet de profiter du soleil et de faire des BBQ.
We had a brilliant time at the lovely place of Serena. The house was very comfortable and had the most beautiful fig tree in the backyard. Bus connection and supermarkets a very close by. I would definitely come back again. Merci!!
