Venue and Practical info

Le Lazaret, Sète

Le Lazaret is a holiday site in Sète in the South of France on the Mediterranean coast, in the region of Occitany.

More info can be found here: https://www.lazaretsete.com

The charms of the canals and the picturesque coast of its fishing port make Sète a town of character, bathed in the Mediteranean and the lagoon of Thau. The omnipresence of water, its incomparable light and colours are all qualities which have earned Sète the name "Venice of Occitany".

 

Social activities

As Le Lazaret is right on the beach, don't hesitate to bring your swimming suits, beach volley ball, pétanque... Whatever you feel could make a great relaxing activity after all the Solar Orbiter activities!
Miho will be providing some yoga classes for those interested, don't hesitate to bring your yoga mats!
NEW: We'll be meeting on the beach at 7:00 am.
