We spent two weeks here and had a great time. The apartment is in an excellent location with a large market, harbour, restaurants and bars within walking distance. The city is very vibrant and there is always something going on. The aquarium is very good -worth a visit. Try the Omelette restaurant (a few minutes walk) very tasty omelettes!
Florence was very accommodating and welcoming. When we arrived it was extremely hot in La Rochelle so we asked Florence for a fan and she scoured the shops and found us 2 which was fantastic! We would certainly recommend staying with Florence and visiting the lovely La Rochelle.
We stayed for 10 days in July with our two boys aged 15 and 12. The airport is small and very convenient to the city centre and the port. Florence met us on arrival and made us feel very welcome throughout our visit. The apartment is comfortable and spacious with good WIFI. It has a good kitchen and there is a Carrefour supermarket nearby. The beds were very comfortable and the area was quiet by night. We had everything we needed for cooking and good kitchen and dining facilities. As the apartment is very convenient to all amenities we didn't need a car. There is a lovely authentic traditional market just down the street, open every day, where you'll find fresh fish, meat, fruit and vegetables as well as plenty of typical French restaurants and cafes. The port is a 10 minute walk and the train station is 15 minutes. La Rochelle is a gem of a place with a big park in the city, very impressive buildings from the middle ages and several museums and a world class aquarium - well worth a visit. We went by bike to the island of Re and to the seaside resort of Chatellion. We also visited the island of Aix by boat. La Rochelle has a huge marina and looks like a great place for yachting. We also took a train to Paris Montparnasse (3 hour journey) which is just a short walk from the Eiffel Tower. We all agreed this was a very enjoyable and relaxing holiday ad we would definitely go back and stay in the same place!
