Rochefort, located on the banks of the River Charente, is a hugely popular health and spa resort. Villas in Rochefort and cottages on Rochefort’s outskirts have been popular since the 1960’s for those looking for a little pampering. The long naval history of Rochefort can be seen in the old military arsenal and the 18th century frigate which stands in the port. The Old School of Naval Medicine is an absolutely magnificent place to visit, although it could make some visitors pretty queasy! There are some mouth watering delights to be found here too, especially the ice cream.

Really close to the beautiful Pontailac beach with lots of restaurants to choose from. A very quiet locatation. We and our teenage boys really enjoyed our stay although booking a wi-fi hub for the week helped a lot! Our boys really enjoyed surfing which is very popular (and safe) on this beach. The weather has been great for the time of year. Thank you Yolande. We would like to stay here again and would highly recommend this property.

The property was located close to all amenities, and a short walk from the beach. We had a warm welcome on arrival from the owner and the property was very beautiful, both inside and out. We had everything we required and more. We will definitely consider returning in the future, and would highly recommend. Rebecca and family

We were well looked after by the site staff, gas bottle changed before we had even come back from reporting it at reception. The reception staff and all staff were always smiling and helpful, and the entertainment staff worked their socks off, still always with a smile. The site is brilliant, lots of entertainment all day for all ages and plenty of space just to relax and unwind. The mobile home is situated in a sort of cul de sac, enabling children to play safe in front of the home and was peaceful. We had a wonderful holiday and will be returning.
