What's La Rochelle Like?

Formerly one of France's most important Atlantic ports, La Rochelle has made a graceful transition into an elegant resort, preserving its 17th and 18th-century centre and harbour front areas. The Vieux Port, with its imposing towers, is where locals and visitors dine, socialise or just take a walk. From here it is possible to stroll along the waterfront past the old city walls to the nearest beach. The town centre offers an array of fine buildings including the grand mansion of the Maison Henri II and the Cafe de la Paix, an ornate Belle Epoque meeting place for La Rochelle society. La Rochelle's market is the perfect place to acquire a gourmet picnic for the beach. For families the aquarium in La Rochelle is regarded as one of France's finest. For days out, La Rochelle is connected by bridge to the idyllic island of Île de Ré, with its countless cycling trails and secluded beaches.

Tips for Getting Along with Locals in La Rochelle

La Rochelle is a tourist town but most visitors are French, so having a few simple phrases will be invaluable in cafes and markets. The Atlantic weather in La Rochelle tends to be fairly changeable and locals don't really go in for the chic outfits you might see on the Mediterranean coast. Follow their example and pack a waterproof jacket. Fish and seafood are the culinary specialities on this part of the coast. Locals are proud of the sea urchins cultivated on the Île de Ré, which feature on many menus in La Rochelle's Vieux Port restaurants.
