Discover La Rochelle in two days
Week-long trip to La Rochelle
Family visit to La Rochelle
In La Rochelle for a weekend getaway? Then don’t miss your chance to explore its must-see historic sites. Head to the foot of the Tour Saint-Nicolas and the Tour de la Chaîne, remnants of the city’s coastal defenses. Next, treat yourself to a journey back to medieval times with a trip to the porticoed streets of the old city. On your second day, after a night in one of La Rochelle’s Première Classe hotels, stroll through the city’s old harbor area, Vieux-Port, let the invigorating sea breeze recharge your batteries, and make a pit-stop in Saint-Nicolas, a charming old fishing quarter.
A longer stay in one of La Rochelle’s Première Classe hotels is the perfect opportunity to dive deeper into the area’s heritage. Lovers of local produce should head to Les Halles for its daily morning market. The stalls there are bursting with delicious local produce. Vacations are all about taking time out to enjoy life — and there’s no better place to start than one of the area’s charming café terraces. Or perhaps you’d rather relax in a lush green oasis? With a canal running through the middle and trees every way you look, Charruyer Park is perfect for a peaceful stroll. If time allows, treat yourself to a getaway to the island of Oléron.
A bustling, vibrant city, La Rochelle is bursting with fun family activities. The huge Palmilud water park is a great place to go for a fun day of splashing about. Little ones are guaranteed to head straight for the splash pool, slides and playgrounds, while the grown-ups get to sit back and relax in a Jacuzzi. Next up, take a trip to the La Rochelle Aquarium — one of the biggest in Europe — to see 600 species from all over the world. Want to stay for longer?
