Favourite Cities and Hotels in France

The Charente-Maritime department of France has a superb location on the Bay of Biscay and Atlantic Ocean coast, about halfway between the border of Spain and the extreme northwest tip of the country. As such, the small city of La Rochelle has a wealth of enchantment in store and a mild, Mediterranean-like climate for visitors to enjoy.

Occupation of what is now La Rochelle dates back to antiquity, though official settlement of the city took place in the 10th century. As a vital seaport, La Rochelle went through various periods of conflict and prosperity, from the Hundred Years War to the triangular trade of the New World. The result today is a wonderful collection of landmarks within the Vieux Port and old town area, in addition to nearby points of interest such as Fort Boyard and île de Ré. Other attractions in La Rochelle include the Orbigny-Bernon Museum, Saint-Louis Cathedral and Maritime Museum.
