La Rochelle, named "the white city" was founded by the Romans and developed throughout the ages a strong and lucrative merchant activity making the town with its fortified port, its mansions, and narrow streets with archways, the most attractive and romantic city of the Atlantic coast from Nantes to Bordeaux.

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.
