“The holiday feeling”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 July 2014

When you see the two towers of the Vieux port, you immediately feel you are on holiday. Lot of restaurants. Nice area to walk.

“Yes, there are lots of tourists, but...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 July 2014

...it's still lovely. La Rochelle is not a resort. It's a historically interesting and delightfully picturesque town, and the port is its centerpiece. The old town around it is great for wandering in: lots of interesting buildings and shops. The Tour St Nicolas is worth a visit, if only for the view. And it's all so perfectly... French!

“Magic evening”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 July 2014

It was a bit dirty in places. The ambiance, bustle and old forts and restaurants combined history with modern day.
