Wonderful position, wonderful views, wonderful property and wonderful holiday
This property is a one in a million positioned right on the port with a wonderful wraparound terrace you certainly feel you are in the middle of everything, not only this but it is also extremely well equipped. My wife and I had a wonderful stay, although there was only the two of us, this property can easily accommodate eight people and suitable for families or groups of friends. Thierry was extremely helpful and accommodating also a special mention for Jennifer who was so friendly and helpful and made check in and check out so easy.
Many thanks Patrick and you are very welcome anytime in La Rochelle :-)
In the Middle of Everywhere one wants to be in La Rochell
Great location and a wonderful property. Wish we had scheduled a few more days to enjoy the area.
Hope we are able to stay here again.
The view,the view!
An exceptional apartment in an exceptional location. The description is very accurate and it's a cheeky delight to see the envious stares as the property is accessed through the tiny door at the top of the steps to the walls right next to the Chaine tower. Inside, all is good, bathrooms, kitchen and the terrace. Wow! More modern and comfortable chairs in the salon would be nice, but the best time should be spent out in this excellent town.
As a family of 4 (all adults), this property was perfect for our needs and we would not hesitate to rebook the property when we return to La Rochelle. The home is ideally located, very comfortable, well-appointed and the kitchen in particular is well-equipped. The property exceeded our expectations in every way. We stayed at the property in December and due to the weather we were not able to take advantage of private terrace, but can confirm the views are stunning. Everything La Rochelle has to offer is within easy walking distance to the property: restaurants, the fabulous central market, shopping, and other attractions. We were also able to park our rental car close to the property for easy access in and out of La Rochelle. Lastly, and just as importantly, the owner of the property was exceptionally gracious, helpful, and accommodating to our needs. Overall, staying at the property was a great experience and we hope to return.
Worth it for the terrace alone!
The apartment is very clean and very well equipped. Two of the rooms have super king beds (6" wide) which is something we have at home but rarely find when we are traveling in Europe.
The terrace however is amazing! Brilliant views to the old port and the surrounding quays in one direction and view out to see and the main leisure port in the other direction. We spent many an evening drinking wine up there, however there are a lot of stairs when you to pop down for another bottle.
Finally, Thierry is so helpful! Showed us around to make sure we knew where everything was and how it all worked and even gave us a lift to the airport at the end of our stay.
We will definitely be going back, just trying to work out when we can fit it in!
Many thanks for your very kind comment. It has been a real pleasure to host you. Looking forward to welcoming you again in La Rochelle.
A truly amazing property
There is so much that I can say about this delightful town house. The location by the town walls with stunning views in every direction over the harbour and river estuary. It is not often your next door neighbour is a mediaeval tower! La Rochelle is a town of character. Winding, narrow streets, bijou shops anongside more cosmopolitan outlets, a wide range of restaurants and a colourful daily market within ten minutes walk.which will have all you could need for home cooking (and if that is too far then there is always Monoprix which is only five). There are even a couple of wine bars aswell as several cafes just around the corner if you feel like going out after a meal at home to people watch.
The town beach, although not broad, is fine and barely five minutes walk. Or you can catch the boat to Minimes where there is somewhat larger beach. Better still take the boat to Ile d'Aix, hire a bike and discover its coves and beaches. There are broder stretches of sand both north and south of La Rochelle and on the Ile de Re. There is, of course, besides sunning yourself on a beach, much else you can do within the town or within an hour's drive.
The house itself is spacious and very liveable. The kitchen is one of the best equipped I've ever used. All three double bedrooms are very comfortable. There is air conditioning if you get too hot. But the most notable feature is the roof top terrace from where you can watch the boats, the crowds, the buskers and the evening murmurations of the starlings as they come in to roost in the quayside trees.
Last but not least let me say with thanks what a helpful and obliging host is Thierry, the owner. Not every owner offers you a lift to the station and carries your bags!

The old port of Rochelle has many towers and battlements you can visit.
There is an aquarium, well known for the diversity of its species.
