La Rochelle

 

Guarded by medieval twin towers, the Vieux Port at La Rochelle is one of the most photographed harbours on France’s Atlantic coast, the colourful hub of a town packed with history and heritage, tempting boutiques and cosy restaurants.

 

Located on the Bay of Biscay, La Rochelle’s history mostly involved the sea; today it has a large pleasure-boat marina. Thus its heart is the picturesque "Vieux Port" ("Old Harbour"). The city retains a rich architectural heritage, and has an aquarium, attractive gardens and a natural-history museum.

Has many sandy beaches and it is within 135 km (about 90 min) from the Gite.
