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!
Firstly, the property is exactly as per the photographs. It is a modern, tastefully decorated house which is equipped with everything you would need. The kitchen is lovely, and two bathrooms are particularly useful. The owner is very welcoming and is available to answer any queries that you may have.
The secluded garden is sheltered from the sea breezes and is a perfect sun trap as well as also having a hot tub fitted.
The property is located within 5 minutes from the beach and the traditional French town. A car is probably essential to make the most of the surrounding area as a dual carriageway is only 5 minutes away. La Rochelle is a 15 minute drive away, or even better hire a cycle from the local cycle shop.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this beautiful property and the local area, which is suited for people familiar with exploring areas in France.
