Vacation rentals in La Rochelle: a port to another world
The salty maritime air of La Rochelle is offset by the otherworldly 'white island' of Re. Lush oleanders wave in the breeze while La Rochelle's stalwart towers offer a barricade against the waves of the Atlantic. Hole up in a vacation cottage here, like mariners have in centuries past.
Fresh seafood and aged Cognac
While you're here, get a taste of the natural rock oysters that throng this part of the coast. Explore other local scents and flavours at the superb markets in the city, which take place several times weekly. And last but not least; La Rochelle is famous for its cognac.
What you will find further afield
Continue your L'Île de Re exploration with a stroll along the 30 kilometre-long island, taking in the views. Salt settling on the surface of the water makes this heavenly island's white beaches glisten in the sun, as do its white stone cottages. Just down the coast, you'll find Île d'Aix, a little pearl of an island devoted to oysters: cultivating as well as consuming. Back on the mainland, look out for the gruesome gargoyles emanating from La Rochelle's House of Nicolas Venette.
Highlights to visit in La Rochelle
La Rochelle Harbour
The harbour of La Rochelle is one of the city's most happening spaces with its bobbing boats surrounded by market stalls and restaurants. The wide boulevard adjacent to the harbour is conducive to some of the best people-watching around, with all the color of French life parading up and down its length.
Aquarium La Rochelle
Dive deep into the marine atmosphere of La Rochelle at its impressive aquarium. Walk under canopies of water, where brightly coloured schools of fish swim together like flocks of birds. Children will love exploring the different seas, in specially themed sections of the museum, interactive exhibits, and getting up close with turtles.
Towers of La Rochelle
Imposing towers flank the entrance to La Rochelle's port, a distinctive sight on the city's skyline. The Lantern Tower dates from the 12th century and served many purposes over the ages, including spells as a watchtower, prison, and a lighthouse. The Saint Nicholas Tower and Chain Tower guarded the port and were also used as a prison for the Huguenots, as symbols of the city's puissance.
Musees des Automates
Unsurprisingly, this museum of ancient figurines is the most notable in France. Its Europe-wide collection comprises pieces from auction houses, antique shops, and the attics of department stores in Paris, London and Berlin.
The Lighthouse of L'Île de Re
The shell-like spiral staircase in this traditional lighthouse, on the coast of the idyllic island of Re, are worth the climb. Views of its secluded beaches, boutiques and bistros, as well as the atmospheric natural environment, are your reward.
