“An absolute gem”

Let me start by saying that I don't usually write reviews. Something has to be extremely good (or bad) to get me to post something. In the case of 'Appartement T2' in La Rochelle, I am inspired to write something because I had an absolutely spectacular stay from start to finish.

First off - what lovely hosts. Patrick and Elisabeth were the perfect combination of welcoming and helpful (a ride from the airport, champagne in the fridge, and insights into things to do in la Rochelle) and at the same time I never felt crowded or watched, which can be the case in some holiday rentals.

The flat itself was gorgeous. Beautiful deck which made the inside living space feel large and open, not to mention a great space to eat breakfast, watch the local sailing school, or soak up the sunset with a glass of wine. The bed was firm - perfect - and nights were quiet . Lots of space for storing away clothes, suitcases, etc. Kitchen was great. I love to cook and every time I got to the point where I thought they might not have something I needed (crab cracker, Tupperware, ice cream scoop....) it would be right there in one of the cupboards.

I had to do a bit of work while I was there and I couldn't have asked for a better spot to do it. Good WiFi, great jazz on the iPod, and sliding blinds on the deck to ensure that I could always see my screen no matter how sunny it was.

I really liked the location. I'm a runner and I was right on a great ocean path for jogging. Also it's close enough to the old port for an easy walk or bike, but isn't smack in the middle of the tourist hustle and bustle.

If I had a complaint, which I don't, but just so it is clear this is an unbiased review, I will write about the one thing I might adjust a little: the amount of artefacts and objects on display. While it actually made the space way nicer than any impersonal hotel, it did have me a bit worried that I might end up knocking and breaking something when placing my own things. But, I really had to dig deep for this wee concern and I think it rather underlines what a lovely stay it was.

I wholeheartedly recommend this apartment and hope to be back myself!
