La Rochelle, France overview

La Rochelle became one of the great maritime cities of France in the fourteenth and fifteenth century. La Rochelle is a most interesting place, well worthy of a visit. The Quay of the little port, guarded at the entrance by two noble towers, the Tour Saint Nicolas and the Tour de la Chaine. The grey and yellow walls of these ancient fortresses, the bright green of the water, the old arcaded houses surrounding it, make a most picturesque scene.

Lovely town and marina unfortunately alot of road works that meant it was difficult to get around with a wheel chair or mobility scooter. Even so we enjoyed our time here. Coach from the dock to town centre was strange and uncomfortable more suited for airport shuttle.

Visited the local market, which is not on the brochure. It is on Rue Gambetta. Love the fresh Oyster outside the market. So fresh, cheap and comes with free white wine!! Excellent

Pretty little port, inside the old town walls , lots of pretty shops, the harbour is bustling. Need to take a ride by horse drawn cart to experience the narrow streets .

We, my husband and our two young children took the small bus ride to get to the markets and restaurants, lovely atmosphere. Plenty to buy for souvenirs. Worth a visit.
