Visit the Sea in Beautiful Sete on Your Next Provence Road Trip

If you have a chance to take a trip and don’t really care where you go, just put your finger on a spot on a map. Then go there.

That’s pretty much how I decided to visit Sete (pronounced “set”).

A little bit Venice, a little bit Riviera
Sete is a town of approximately 40,000 people who mostly earn their livelihood from the sea.

…Continue reading here for details on this coastal city in the Languedoc-Roussillon. There are daily markets, a fish auction house, fabulous architecture and a rich history. Sete is actually an island, and consider by many to be the “Venice of France.” There are 24 bridges that straddle canals, which lead to the Mediterranean. The City’s coat of arms features a whale, apparently sailors gave the island its original name Cette (Cettoise) due the the humpback shape of the land.

Retired from a career in advertising and marketing communications, and divorced after a 40-year marriage with children, Deborah left Beaufort, South Carolina and all of her belongings last year to move to the south of France. Now that she has found her "bliss," her passion is to encourage others to break away from whatever is holding them back and to go after their dreams. "We're on life's journey alone. Be certain you love where you are."
