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.
Bit of a long hot coach ride to town and back. La Rochelle was great though

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 .
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

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.
Bordeaux was very interesting.

Best port so far on this cruise. Efficient, free shuttle from the dock to city center. Skip the tourist part and head to the well preserved old town. We were there on a Sunday, lots of shops closed, nice and quiet. Found a great vegan restaurant for lunch. It’s a college town, tourists mostly from France in the spring and summer. Old town has cool, narrow streets, lots of water and parks. Everything is walkable and incredibly clean and well maintained. Highly recommended!
