Thau is considered the third largest lake in France. And, of course, one of the most beautiful. The road to it winds through the vineyards, the flamingos and herons roam the shallow waters, seagulls dance in seaweeds.
The family oyster farm, to which we will go, is right here – on the shore of To, a few kilometers from Marseillan. This business was founded by the father of the current owner of Floran in the early 60s of the XX century. Now their name is a world famous brand. How did it happen? Everything is simple: love of one’s business, hard work, ingenuity and innovation. Since 2006, with the help of unique “solar” technology, this French family arranges tides and ebbs for its oysters according to a special schedule, such that mollusks grow large, fleshy and incredibly tasty. However, is it worth going into details now? After all, you will see all this with your own eyes. And even more – walk around the neighborhood, ride a boat, or even yourself can put a few young individuals in the cages, where they will live and grow the next two or three years, waiting for your return. Well, what is the visit to the oyster farm without tasting? The oyster bar, famous for the whole of Occitania, where friendly hosts are waiting for us, looks like a fishing hut. Inside, in a rustic cozy, smells like the sea. This dinner will be for you one of those gastronomic adventures that are never forgotten.
