This is not an average holiday let, it is much better, We have never stayed anywhere that was so well equipped and comfortable. Didier, the owner, was there when we arrived and showed us round. He was very welcoming and even invited us to help ourselves to the contents of his very well stocked drinks cupboard. The property is dog-friendly with a large, secure garden. There are also several nice walks nearby.
The area is very peaceful and it was lovely to sit out on the terrace.
Very nice house, living room is larger than it looks on photos. Garden was ideal for our little dog. Owner was very friendly and prompt. Very close to town centre, 10 min walk, and it's a lovely walk, either down along the waterfront or along the grassed centre parade. La Rochelle is full of lovely bars/restaurants (all dog friendly) and loads of shops - especially ladies fashion shops. Everywhere we ate they spoke good English. We went a boat day trip to the i'le d'aix, a very small pretty island, we also saw Fort Bouyard on the journey. The Casino is just 2 mins walk and is a great place for a drink, there's a separate bar area and a restaurant, and a outside terrace overlooking the harbour, you don't have to dress fancy (we wore jeans and trainers) and dogs are welcome inside. Remember to take your own bedding and towels. I believe it is normal for these not to be provided in France. There were a mattress protectors, a quilted throw, a very long pillow, and some blankets, but you definitely need to take your own sheets (I took all our own bedding including quilt and pillows just in case). There is wifi in the house as well. Overall a very nice place in a very good location!
