About La Rochelle
Known as La Ville Blanche (the White City), La Rochelle's bright limestone cliffs glow in radiant sunlight. The historic city centre is a criss-cross of narrow streets, many of which are lined with restaurants and cafés offering local specialties. The port is a wonderful place to wander around and is an important reminder of the cities seafaring past.
The neighbouring Ile de Ré is also well worth a visit – this highly popular tourist destination is famous for its sandy Atlantic beaches and two small ports. The post of Saint Martin is like a smaller La Rochelle and the entire town of Saint Martin de Ré, is a UNESCO World Heritage site.
La Rochelle is the perfect destination to experience authentic French culture.
