Taking a break from the Le Mans 24hrs, we decided on La Rochelle and looked at reviews of accommodation within walking distance of the Old Town and found this lovely apartment. A view of the Atlantic Ocean from the balcony and within a 20 minute stroll of over 100 restaurants, cafes and bars located around the old harbour.
Strolling into town is a joy via the park and beach front. Then through the town walls and you will find a variety of restaurants to suit all tastes. Elisabeth is the perfect host welcoming us with a bottle of champagne, all the necessities for our first breakfast and on one morning had delivered a baguette and pastries outside our apartment.
There is secure parking within the complex and a lift for those who cannot manage the stairs to the first floor. Me being a dedicated “petrol head” was very impressed with Patrick’s collection of model classic cars. Because we dined in two nights the kitchen facilities were second to none.
The feature of the sliding louvred screens on the balcony allowed many permutations for sun or shade. The black and white film decor throughout the apartment gives this a fascinating theme. We were also very lucky with superb weather which helped us to visit most the attractions in the area.
Top class accommodation and worth every euro!
We were extremely comfortable in this lovely apartment. Elisabeth made us extremely welcome and we really appreciated the food and wine that she had left for us. It was so helpful after a very long journey to have that there. The bed was very comfortable indeed. It was great having a designated parking space in the gated area. We loved where the apartment is situated too as there are great parks and walks nearby. All in all it was a lovely break.
Thank you to Elizabeth on arrival fresh fruit and fridge full of essentials including wine and champagne !!! She also arrived with breakfast on one morning !! Perfect apt in perfect setting !!!
The apartment was clean, beautifully decorated and was our home away from home for our 4 days in La Rochelle. Elisabeth, the owner, was lovely and welcomed us the morning after our arrival with fresh pastries, baguette and preserves in hand. The apartment was well stocked and has a lovely balcony with table and chairs for two and we enjoyed a couple of meals with a lovely view of the water. The bed was comfortable and everything was in good order. The apartment is a short walk or bike ride away and we absolutely loved our stay here.
Exceptionally well furnished apartment although Sofa is not that comfortable. Secure parking is a real bonus. Easy flat walk through Park to harbour, restaurants etc. Good local Cafe within easy reach. 10 min drive to leclerc for food shopping etc.

Great apartment to stay for visiting la rochelle. About 20 mins by foot to the old town and less on the bikes which were made available to us at the apartment. The owners met us on arrival and couldn't be more helpful along with the added extras that they had left including champagne for us!
Very easy to find and great that you have your own private parking space!
Very nice appartment with stunning view every morning..
Hosts were lovely all I can say is thank you for very much for a holiday let , which was totally accurate in description in every way.
