Just a lovely area to stroll around, eat a croissant with your legs dangling over the edge of the wall and watching the fish swimming around, If the sun is going down its even more beautiful.

Although it was a blustery winter's day this port is very interesting to walk around and have a look at the boats and scenery etc. Rimmed with lots of nice cafes and restaurants to tickle your fancy ! With charming back streets to discover.

Even on the brisk, windy autumn day of our visit, we enjoyed strolling through this part of La Rochelle. We had a good, reasonably priced lunch on the waterfront. We especially loves the dramatic views from the ramparts.

While staying in the South of France we went for a drive to La Rochelle. What a beautiful port with lots of sailboats. We wondered the cobblestone streets, found some amazing shops and had a fabulous lunch by the water.

La Rochelle is a wonderful place to visit but The View Port is at the core. Enjoyed a pleasant stroll on many of the side streets around this bustling waterfront. Maybe too many restaurants in the are a but they dont take from the lovely view towards the water and towers.

A great place to take in the view of the towers, eat, drink and calculate the total value of the yachts in the harbours. Great place for photgraphers.
