La Rochelle called "the white city" was founded by the Romans and has developed throughout the ages a strong and lucrative merchant activity making of the town the most attractive and romantic city of the Atlantic coast from Nantes to Bordeaux. On top of its fortified port, its mansions, and narrow streets with archways and timber frame houses, La Rochelle also boasts the largest leisure port in Europe with over 3000 moorings, a lively marina, a wide range of shopping facilities and restaurants to suit all tastes. La Rochelle is also a buoyant city with a great sense of "joie de vivre" promoted by the thousands of local students as well as by the town council which organises famous events such as the "La Solitaire du Figaro" sailing race or the "Francofolies" music festival, and its very diverse cultural activities including some renowned musea.
The nearest seaside resort of Chatelaillon or the island of Ré are accessible by car within 10 to 15 mn and allow to enjoy the 3rd best climate in France (just after Corsica and the Côte d'Azur).

With its fortified port, its famous towers, its stately mansions, its old streets with arcades and timber houses, its "wooden town", everything contributes to make of La Rochelle a very attractive city that you will enjoy not only for its beautiful landmarks but also for its shopping, its restaurants and its nightlife. There is quite a lot to do in the city including sightseeing in the Old Town with its splendid City Hall built in the reign of Henri IV in Italian style, visiting one of the numerous musea, the large and modern city aquarium or strolling along the 2 km long old fortifications park, home for swans and birds. The Port des Minimes is the largest leisure port in Europe on the Atlantic coast. Over 3 thousand crafts of all types can be accommodated in one of the 3 basins, Bout-blanc, Marillac or Lazaret. The port facilities include shipyards, renowned sail makers and specialists in outfitting which contribute to make of La Rochelle an ideal location for boat lovers. Ferries run daily in the summer between La Rochelle and Ile d'Aix, Fort Boyard for a one day adventure.
Just across the bridge from La Rochelle lays Ile de Ré, a beautiful stretch of land of 25 km long with over 200 miles of bicycle lanes to take the time to discover its natural wildlife, beautiful beaches, vineyards, salt marshes, the lighthouse "Les Baleines" and quaint villages such as Saint Martin, Ars, La Couarde or Loix.
In the immediate vicinity of La Rochelle, Rochefort, Cognac, or Oyster farming in Marennes are good alternatives for a day trip. Life in La Rochelle is classy, easy going, healthy because practising sports is easy, pleasant because of the climate and good sea food.
