  • A beautiful trip in the maritime world, including a thorough visit of the weather ship and the tugboat. A very good time.

  • Beautiful Museum, a tour of the weather ship France1 is not to be missed. Bar on the boat restaurant offers menus of the day. Simple but good and reasonably priced food. Good home.

  • Many spaces where history of the (a) port (s) La Rochelle told us: shipowners, fishing, cruising, competitions an immersion in the trades of the inhabitants very interesting. Space ludo for children (puzzle, workshop of nodes) then visit independently of vessels including the France1 (weather ship) of the engine at the command post room: superb! Without forgetting rated yachts moored at the dock.

Where to stay in La Rochelle

To discover La Rochelle's rich architectural heritage, book your rooms at a stylish hotel near the city's picturesque old harbor. From there, you can easily explore the city's oldest areas, while remaining within easy walking distance of modern tourist attractions, such as the aquarium and natural history museum. If you're travelling on a limited budget, consider staying farther away from the old harbor, where you can choose from a selection of small inns, private B&Bs, and good-value hostels.
