nantes to la rochelle by train

Hi, Can anyone tell me if it is possible to do a day return journey from nantes tola rochelle by train and a rough idea of what it would cost. I will be staying in Nantes for 4 days in October with 3 friends and thought it might be a nice trip if it wasnt too far.

Trains take between 1h48 and 3h30 each way, depending on whether the train is direct or requires a change. The cost varies according to how far ahead you book. Tickets go on sale 3 months before travel. The cheapest tickets often sell out quickly, and the price keeps going up as the day of travel gets closer.

You can get train times and costs, and make bookings, in English at www.tgv-europe.com/en

It is quite a pleasant journey on the trains between the two cities but the services are not particularly regular. If the times do not suit there are a number of other options for a day trip by rail from Nantes - Pornic on the coast for example, or up the Loire to Angers or Saumur,

Thanks for the advice I will check out the website to see if the train times suit. Do you anything about St Nazaire it seems to be a bit closer and I have heard it is pretty with some WW2 memorabilia, if La Rochelle doesn't work out
