  • Well maintained port with lots of cafes and restaurants at one end and the Towers of La Rochelle at the other end.  more »
  • Great character. The very ideal of La Rochelle with its two large sea facing towers. The variety of boats, motor or sailing coupled with the much larger trip sightseeing ones. A lovely spot.  more »
