La Rochelle


Vieux Port

When you enter the Old Port, sit at one of the cafes that line the harbor and take it all in. You will see the Tour de la Chaine in front of you and the Eiffel Saint-Nicolas is at the entrance of the harbor. Further the Tour de la Lanterne. 
Indulge yourself with a visit to these towers, you will learn the history of La Rochelle and enjoy a panoramic view over the city.


Market area

Each day, the stalls are installed in the halls, and on Wednesdays and Saturdays, which are big market days, the surrounding streets are invaded by florists, cheese makers, vegetable stands, etc. 
This district owes its charm to its half-timbered houses and medieval slates and also to its shops, which are sheltered under the arcades.


Saint-Nicolas Neighborhood

Here the boutiques are not chic, there are thrift stores, art galleries, a bookshop and a café on a small square where locals like to meet.
At night, the young Rochelais meet up for a drink in a bar or in a wine cellar and spend a nice evening with friends.


Minimes district
Change of scenery and come to a place where everything revolves around the ocean. The largest port on the Atlantic coast, the port of Minimes holds up to 3500 boats. 
To relax during the day, put your towel on the beach or opt for small walk in the park. You will be tempted to follow the path along the coast as you make your way back to the hotel!
