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.
