Chateau d'Assas

The Assas Castle

Twenty minutes on foot from the gite, through vineyards and garrigue, lies a "folie", a Montpellier-style edifice built in the 18th century on the ruins of a feudal chateau.

From its esplanade, the coast spreads out before you from Aigues Mortes to Mount Saint Clair, which towers over the village of Sète.
