A gentle haven set in a perfect location

This dainty, well-thought-out apartment is sunny, smart and amazingly tranquil despite being just one floor above a thriving street of fine restaurants. All due to Denis' enjoyment of quirky modern furnishing yet practical approach to everyday needs - this begins with the front door lock (clever), and the glazed windows with shutters adding 'walling' against any outside bustle. So, returning each evening after days of exhausting exploration on foot became a joy. Lovely using the small well-equipped kitchen with glass hob and Smeg fridge, as well as the comfortable, attractively modern sitting room with wide Samsung TV, and specially interesting lighting, as well as a few books. Then there's a great shower room with fluffy towels, and wow - good size bedroom with comfortable double bed and smart bedding. Side angle poise lamps on small bedside tables were also great for reading before nodding off.

Tiny hiccup: Hanging clothes of any length - e.g. dresses, trousers - could be better, but I used the fun knobby rack in the hall when height was needed.

Couldn't have had a better host. Denis is attentive, alert, caring and proud of the place he has created. I think he's thought of everything to ensure a good stay.

As for the location, just around the corner from one of the two ancient towers protecting the old port, I cannot imagine being anywhere better. You can even see the top of the old Lantern Tower through the sitting room window. Everything is more or less within walking distance - no need of a car - and the great joy is that the street is car free… they can come for essential pickup/drop off, but must go. Quiet bicycles pass by, people stroll civilly, or sit outside the many restaurants enjoying some great food. The apartment is opposite one of the finest - the atrium-like plant filled Four Sergeants (a tale in itself). I had saved up to enjoy a splendid last lunch there before leaving for home.

La Rochelle is a joy to visit - architecturally, culturally, and don't miss the market for superbly fresh produce, all artistically presented are cheeses, meats, poultry, farm produce and the fruits of the sea in abundance (where do they catch them all!?!), and ah, the pastries… and there are also many delicious pre-prepared dishes to take home.
I will return, and certainly to this apartment, I suspect even an appealing base to be in winter.

Our stay in La Rochelle was fantastic, mainly due to the excellent accommodation, pretty town by the sea and the great weather. The apartment is situated in a superb location in the city centre. The finest restaurants are at the door. Although the buzz of the pedestrian street in the evening/at night was intense, we did not hear a sound given the sound proofed windows. This beautifully designed apartment has amenities of a high standard. It is fully equipped, so we felt very at home. Our two-year old loved the smart TV and the quirky design of the place.

Our landlord was very helpful and checked in on us at key moments to make sure everything was ok. We would have no hesitation in recommending the place, and we would consider going again.
