My fiancee, my niece (17) and I will stay in La Rochelle for a week from July 11 th - 18 th. We have bought the trip through TransProvence in Norway, and the hotel, rental bikes, trip suggestions and four dinners are included. The hotel is Hotel Francois 1er, 15 rue Bazoges. Checked the homepage last night and found out there is no aircondition. Will that be a problem then? I suppose July may be on the hot side? I kind of looked forward to a cool room after biking trips, but I might as well not worry!
The included restaurants are Les Comediens and Les 4 Sergents. Would Les Flot be the best alternative for something more fancy one of the other nights? We enjoy gourmet restaurants, with great food and and wine! Is it a must to make reservations in advance?
We are really looking forward to a wonderful week! I will bring my aquarelle colours and maybe do a sketch or two. We've been told the light is special and the town is beautiful!
