About Thierry Demier

My family has been in Rochelle for a century and I am pleased to return after 20 years in Paris. I am the owner of a boatyard TechniYachtsPinta, close to the old port. As a hobby is to fly. I speak English and am delighted to help you to discover what a jewel La Rochelle is.

Why Thierry Demier chose La Rochelle - Surgeres area

This rental is the family home where I grew up but recently left in order to live in a bigger house in La Rochelle. The exceptional character of the location of this property made me want to allow visitors to enjoy this place overlooking the port.

What makes this house unique

The highlights of the rental include:

- Unique location with a view of the sea, port and channel ,

- Complete high quality renovation that was completed a few years ago for personal use,

- Air-conditioning unit for hot days.

A truly amazing property

  • 5 of 5

There is so much that I can say about this delightful town house. The location by the town walls with stunning views in every direction over the harbour and river estuary. It is not often your next door neighbour is a mediaeval tower! La Rochelle is a town of character. Winding, narrow streets, bijou shops anongside more cosmopolitan outlets, a wide range of restaurants and a colourful daily market within ten minutes walk.which will have all you could need for home cooking (and if that is too far then there is always Monoprix which is only five). There are even a couple of wine bars aswell as several cafes just around the corner if you feel like going out after a meal at home to people watch.

The town beach, although not broad, is fine and barely five minutes walk. Or you can catch the boat to Minimes where there is somewhat larger beach. Better still take the boat to Ile d'Aix, hire a bike and discover its coves and beaches. There are broder stretches of sand both north and south of La Rochelle and on the Ile de Re. There is, of course, besides sunning yourself on a beach, much else you can do within the town or within an hour's drive.

The house itself is spacious and very liveable. The kitchen is one of the best equipped I've ever used. All three double bedrooms are very comfortable. There is air conditioning if you get too hot. But the most notable feature is the roof top terrace from where you can watch the boats, the crowds, the buskers and the evening murmurations of the starlings as they come in to roost in the quayside trees.

Last but not least let me say with thanks what a helpful and obliging host is Thierry, the owner. Not every owner offers you a lift to the station and carries your bags!

Perfect holiday retreat

  • 5 of 5

Our Party of 5 which included 3 over age of 60 and one 19 yr old found the apartment to be simply perfect.

The location is brilliant with bars, restaurants, shops, boat trips and a beach all within easy walking distance.

The apartment has all the essentials for self catering, is very comfortable, clean and spacious even for a party of 5 with a roof top terrace for sunbathing and wine tasting and the owner is very friendly and accommodating.

We booked for 7 nights but wish we could have extended our stay for another week as there were still lots of things to do and experience that we hadn't managed to fit in.

We would have no hesitation about booking a return visit or recommending to others

P E R F E C T in every way

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed in this divine apartment for 16 nights. We moved from Australia and spent the 16 nights in the apartment as we waited for our new 'home', our sailing catamaran, to be finished for us to move on.

I am an interior architect and I was attracted to the apartment from the photos. THe experience of staying in the apartment was better than the photos.

Thierry, the lovely owner, designed this apartment for himself to live in so it goes above an beyond any rental apartments. There are beautiful Miele appliances including ovens, steam oven, plate warmer, induction cooktop and dishwasher. There is a wine fridge aswell as double fridge, a coffee machine and so much preparation and storage space in the kitchen. There is also a Miele washing machine and dryer. A true home away from home.

The apartment is right on a heritage landmark on the ramparts right next to the tower. Although you are next to amazing restaurants, the temptation to use the trolley provided and walk to the fresh produce markets and cook our own meal in the amazing kitchen and sit out on the upper deck was too great! We had cheese and wine on the deck most evenings and watched the sunset and mostly ate in the apartment at night.

The beds are comfortable and living is easy. There is always a sunny side to be at and great views out of all windows including a view out to the ocean and horizon.

La Rochelle is a fantastic town to explore. We are also thankful for Thierry's help with not only navigating the town, where to eat and purchase things but also Thierry was able to help us out with the fitout of our new boat. He speaks really good English compared to my not so good French.

I highly recommend staying here! So much so that my friends came and stayed here for the week following us and loved it too!

Don't you love it when you end up with the perfect apartment somewhere?!!

Fabulous house, great location

  • 5 of 5

We were three Australian couples travelling in France. This is a fabulous house with excellent fittings and three good bedrooms. The roof-top terrace is a great spot - the best location for drinks in all of La Rochelle. The location is fantastic - shops, restaurants and beach all within walking distance - and easy access to boats to the islands. Thierry was very helpful, provided lots of information and easy to deal with. We would love to come back here..

Perfect place, perfect location

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic stay. The flat was clean, well equipped, quiet and cool. Thierry provided us with all the guidance we needed for our stay. The location was incredible. Turn left and you're at the marina, turn right and 100 yards down the road is a beautiful sandy beach. Would recommend this to anyone wanting a relaxed getaway!
