We stayed for 3 nights. We got the bus from the airport which was only just over a pound each !!
The hotel was situated on a street just off the bus station so was very easy to find.
The staff were very friendly and spoke very good English. We had a double room which was very quaint with old french style furniture. The ensuite was a bit small but everything worked fine and there was plenty of towels and toiletries.
We had breakfast on the first morning. It was continental style with lots of pastrys, breads cheeses and cold meats. If you wanted to stuff yourself full there was plenty !!!
The hotel is very close to the market where you can buy fresh produce everyday. On a Saturday the market is much larger with a large variety of stalls from clothes and gifts to fruit and veg.
The old port is just a few minutes walk away where there are lots of restaurants to choose from although a bit more pricey than the ones further back in the town.
La Rochelle is a beautiful town there are lots of fashion boutiques, bars, restaurants etc.
You can hire a bike and ride around the town and surrounding areas.
A must visit is Ile de Re a small island just north of La Rochelle you can get a bus there which takes about 30 mins. This is one of the most beatiful places I have been in France.
The small ports of La Flotte and Saint Martin are filled with quaint little shops and fabulous places to eat whilst you relax and watch the day go by.
During our stay we had fabulous weather which was an added bonus. I would definately reccomend La Rochelle and Hotel De La Paix.
