  • Old port can be considered the center of the city, all roads will lead you here. Walk past the small yacht will bring good cheer and beautiful pictures.

  • There is not to say, there is history in La Rochelle. Friends walkers take the walk along the coast, the old port to the Lantern, it's beautiful.

  • It is superb! What a beautiful place! You can not miss the old port and its towers... Besides the city's beautiful., it must pass under the arches, it's very nice when it's warm. It is a medium-sized city to spend a few days.

  • Dog friendly. So well maintained. Beautiful restaurants and cafes everywhere. A delight
  • One of the most beautiful, happy places I have ever been. Historic buildings & one of the oldest ports on the Atlantic. Grab some gelato & sit on the dock just enjoying the French scenery, even had a ferris wheel when I was there in the summer!
  • Lots to see and do
  • Excellent chill time for our anniversary 2015.
  • très beau
