The Etang de Thau is a large lagoon, a sea-lake, covering about 7500 hectares (18 kilometres by 6 kilometres) that is separated from the Mediterranean by a long thing cordon of raised sand. The Mediterranean can be accessed from the Etang at Marseillan and Sete and the Canal du Midi enters the etang at Marseillan. The Etang de Thau is the largest of the lagoons along the Languedoc coast.
Never very deep (average depth is 5 metres, and rarely more than 10 metres deep), the Etang has long been an important resource in the region. The region has been inhabited since neolithic times, although it was the Greeks and Romans who were the first to extract salt from the sea in the etang. Nowadays, as well as salt, the Etang de Thau is an important region for supplying oysters and mussels.
Exploring the Etang de Thau
There are several interesting small towns and villages around the Etang de Thau of interest to visitors. Individually they are quite small apart from Sete but each has their own particular highlights. Some of the most popular are:
The port is pleasant and not over-commercialized, although there are plenty of small shops and cafes to distract you in the town, and Marseillan gives the impression of being a working town rather than a tourist town.
The highlights here in Marseillan include the quays of the port where you can enjoy a promenade.
The 17th century Church of Saint John the Baptist retains parts of the original 11th century church that stood here and is worth visiting in the heart of the old town. Nearby you can see a traditional covered market hall, while the statue of Marianne in the town is said to be the oldest in France.
The town also has a myriad of narrow old streets to amble around inland from the harbour, a seemingly endless maze of two and three storey houses looking much as they would have done a hundred years ago (with the occasional 'posh' modern renovation among them).
Marseillan is also the centre for the production of the well-known Noilly-Prat wine, and is a centre for various nautical sports.
The highlight of the Marseillan year is the 16th August, when the game of 'Capelet' takes over the town - a great 'action and adventure game' involving a lot of getting wet for the competitors!
A centre for oyster and mussel production as far back as the Greeks - the earliest fishers here lived in troglodyte caves along the shore - Bouzigues is one of the towns on the northern shores of the Etang de Thau in Languedoc Rousssillon (across from Sete, which can be seen in the distance across the water).
Without major monuments (although you will see the 15th century church) the town centre is pleasant to stroll around.
There is a small beach in the village, which also has an attractive harbour used by both local fishing boats and visiting pleasure boats, and a stroll around the harbour is an essential part of a visit, perhaps pausing to watch a local artist or two trying to capture the scenery...
There are plenty of cafes, bars and restaurants. Of course, no visit would be complete without sampling the local mussels and oysters!
There is also a small museum in Bouzigues (in the port) that explains the history and techniques of the production of oysters and mussels in the Etang de Thau.
The oyster beds themselves are very photogenic, and best enjoyed by walking along the path along the edge of the etang.
An occupied settlement since ancient times Meze, on the noth-western coast of the Etang de Thau, is now an important local centre for oyster production. Although tourism has an increasingly important role to play, Meze is currently unspoiled and does not have too many tourists.
Your visit to Meze will focus around the harbour, and the streets in the immediately surounding area.
The harbour, still an active fishing port, is a pleasant place for a stroll, while the town itself has narrow streets to explore in the old town (especially the attractive vaulted passageways).
Part of the ancient ramparts can also be seen along the etang. Other points of interest in Meze include:
- the 17th century Chateau de Girard, rather stark in appearance, and externally not of great interest, the castle plays host to various art exhibitions;
- the Chapel of Penitents;
- the churches of Saint Hilaire (15th century) and Saint-Martin-de-Caux (a quaint roman style church constructed in the 12th century for the pilgrims that passed through the town)
Children will enjoy a visit to the paleontology centre which commemorates the fossils found in the region while also allowing children to learn through their own fossil hunting games.
