The city owes its classy and yet warm and easy going atmosphere to a rare blend of classical beauty and nobleness due to the unity of its XVIIIth century architecture with the joyful and welcoming tradition of a port. La Rochelle also boasts the largest leisure port in Europe with over 3600 moorings and an additional 1200 since 2014, a lively marina, a wide range of shopping facilities and restaurants to suit all tastes.
