we will be in La Rochelle for three days in September. I would appreciate any feed back on our plans. Specifically, are we giving enough time to La Rochelle? Is there anything that we must do that we are missing (we are pretty laid back when we travel, we don't like aquariums or zoos etc, we do enjoy walking, historical sites etc
La Rochelle itinerary:
Day 1 – Driving in from Limoges area – Leave 8:30
Stop at Cognac – tour Hennessey, possibly Remy Martin (driver hates cognac so we’re ok with driving)
Question – Is one stop sufficient? I want to buy some cognac; are there shops that sell all brands and kinds (XO, beyond XO, rare etc)
Stop at Saintes for Roman Ruins/ Lunch in the area – probably picnic
Arrive at La Rochelle –Les Brises hotel-hopefully by 3:00 – rest /walk into port area to look around and have dinner.
Day 2: Drive to Jonzac: caves/chateau (it’s not on many site maps but sounds interesting)
Day 3: Drive to Ile de Re- lunch there; return in the afternoon to La Rochelle harbor area. Dinner at Richard Countanceau
Question: are there taxis in town - we would probobly like one for this evening?
