Small house located in a quiet side street just one road back from the beach. Just as per the photos, beautifully maintained, well equipped and lovely outside area. No sound insulation between upstairs and downstairs so take ear plugs if someone snores! The town is lovely, the beach is clean and there are a number of places to eat and drink within easy walking distance. Easy 25min drive to La Rochelle or Rochefort. Very friendly, welcoming and helpful owner. Would definitely stay again, didn't want to leave!
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.
