Bassin de Thau

In a few words

The bassin de Thau is an extraordinary natural site next to the Mediterranean. Shellfish aquaculture, angling and vines form the basis of its unique identity. The Thau area offers a great diversity of landscapes between the étang de Thau and the Gardiole massif.

Ancients vineyards

The Thau wine-producing landscapes were shaped by Roman know-how. Numerous ruins bear witness to their passage. The 90 jars of the storehouse at the Gallo-Roman Villa in Loupian illustrate the importance of wine-producing activity in the region.

The Romans appreciated vines for their virtues as a food but also for their symbolic character. The ancient Mediterranean garden traces their habits and customs.
