La Rochelle

The history of La Rochelle is interesting: a fishing village in the 10th century, built on a rock in the marshes (hence its name), La Rochelle took advantage of the quarrel between France and England to develop and keep some independence.

A very important harbour, particularly in its relations with the New World in the 17th century, it continues even now to be modernized.

Take a tour of the harbour, sit for a drink - if you find a place - and visit the towers that contribute to its reputation. The aquarium is outstanding; it is best to book in advance online. A robot museum and a museum of models are also very pleasant..

Come and stroll under the arcades of the city, discover its magnificent buildings, commercial harbours and marinas, and you will understand why this city has such a reputation.

La Rochelle is 10 km from the Roquechelle apartment.

 

Rochefort

In the late seventeenth century, Louis XIV decided to make a war arsenal in Rochefort: with its central position, protected by the islands and connected to the hinterland by the Charente river, Rochefort makes an ideal site.

With the arsenal and the development of trade, the population of the town grew until 1900.

However, the function of the arsenal quickly reached its limits, and at the end of the twentieth century, the town began a rehabilitation policy: the Corderie Royale, the Hermione sailing-ship project', the transporter bridge on the Charente and Pierre Loti's house make a dynamic tourist town.

Rochefort is 25 km from the Roquechelle apartment.

The islands

Ile de Ré, Ile d'Oléron, Ile d'Aix, Ile Madame ... each one has its charm and is worth visiting.

Our highlight: the island of Aix, is almost car-free, but you can rent bikes there. Very unspoilt, you reach it by ferry from Fouras. You can walk around in three hours, and it's nice to take a picnic and settle into a cove along the way. Napoleon Museum, Fort Liedot, Fort de la Rade ... several visits are available before taking the ferry back in mid to late afternoon.

And of course: Fort Boyard, the most famous of the sea bastions.
