Ports

Palma de Mallorca

Sanary Sur Mer

Sete

In the beginning, under the gallo-romans Sète was known as Ceta or Sita. It was a town on the island of Mont Saint Clair, and made a name for itself in the production of pickled fish. Soon fishing built the towns wealth, making it the envy of local lords and barons. Under the control of the Abbot of Aniane since the 9th century, Sete came under the bishop of Agde in 1246, no doubt to provoke the King of Aragon and the bishops of Maguelone. During this time the lagoon closed up creating the Bassin de Thau. Similarly, silt forced the eventual closure of the then sea ports of Aigues Mortes, Agde, and Narbonne. Under the Duke of Montmorency, Governor of Languedoc, Sète became the definitive Languedoc port, replacing those that had died under the mud. It became the base to hunt the last of the privateers led by the infamous Barbe Rousette. In 1596, construction work was started on a jetty that was to serve to protect the port from the storms of the sea. Because of financial problems the jetty was not completed until 1666 by Colbert. Finally Sète was a secure anchorage for commerce and the royal fleet, as well as a sea entrance for the Canal du Midi. The town was officially created by a decree of the Council of State on 30 September 1673. Forty years later in July 1710, the English attacked and seized the port with apparently little difficulty, before eventually being hunted out. Consequently Languedoc immediately improved the defenses at Fort Saint Pierre and the Citadelle Richeleu. Two centuries later the town was almost totally destroyed whilst being liberated by the allies at the end of the second World War. However, Sète was quickly reborn to become the principal fishing port for France on the Mediterranean.

Suites have separate living and sleeping areas, walk-in wardrobes, and almost all of them have a private veranda. One small detail: every passenger on board is given his/her own e-mail address. The limited number of passengers and the superior ratio of crew members to guests with a German- and English-speaking hotel crew ensure that you feel comfortable on board in every respect from the very first minute. This applies both at sea and ashore. Because independently of where you are travelling with the EUROPA, you can be assured of first-class competence at all times – the captain, the crew and experts on board as well as tourism, tour guide and shore activity experts respectively provide the greatest possible degree of individuality with regards to service and cruise programmes.
