Our flight was late on arrival, but with quick communication with Stephane the owner we were met at the apartment and shown around. The apartment was great and as described on the website. Very well located with good amenities. The beach is a stone’s throw away and there are several good quality restaurants a small supermarket and very good boulangerie. La Rochelle town centre is a 15 minute journey by sea bus, we found the sea bus to be not very reliable, so most days we walked to town which was a 20 minute stroll. We travelled in August so La Rochelle town centre was busy but still pleasant. I'd recommend La Belle de Gabut the Aquarium ,and Le parc Charruyer which has lots of activities for children and a nice beach. We visited Saint-Martin-de-Ré on Île de Ré which was about an hour by bus from the town centre, we took the last boat back in the evening. Overall lots of nice beaches, restaurants and plenty of places to see, a great visit to St Martin. On departure we were met by Christian who arranged a taxi for us. All in all a great stay and I highly recommend this apartment.
We stayed in this apartment for two weeks, two adults and two teenagers. Based on the pictures, we were expecting it to be smaller, but it is very spacious, in a small, modern and quiet building. You also have a private car park, which is amazing as all the nearby roads require payment to park, and they will wait eagerly to fine you! The best thing about the flat is its location. The old harbour is literally a stone-throw away. There are bakeries all around, a small Carrefour City and lots of restaurants. The Concurrence Beach is within walking distance and we enjoyed it a lot. The aquarium is barely five-minute walk away, and the Maritime Museum right by it is totally worth a visit. Anyone interested in history should also visit the Museum of Protestant History and the Bunker. Mr and Mrs Liedts are absolutely charming. Mr Liedts gave us plenty of information restaurant recommendations, and insisted that we call if we needed any help. We even had welcome gifts! We highly recommend this apartment. La Rochelle is extremely expensive, but it is a beautiful town with a fascinating history and we are delighted with our stay.
