BASSIN DE THAU © MATHILDE BAVOILLOT absorbing gourmet destination for those who appreciate traditions and good local produce such as oysters, the speciality of the lagoon which owes its unique flavour to both fresh and salt waters draining the oyster beds!

Nestled at the foot of the Mont Saint Clair, the vast lagoon of 7,500 hectares (the largest one in Languedoc-Roussillon region) is surrounded by pretty villages and harbours such as Sète, Balaruc Les Bains, Bouzigues, Mèze and Marseillan. Like gardens on water, the oyster beds extend as far as the eye can see giving a distinctive character.

First destination of Hérault to be awarded 'Vignobles & Découvertes', let our shellfish farmers welcome you in the 'Pays de Thau' region. They will reveal all the secrets of shellfish production and harvesting in the heart of their farms...
