Cheap flights to La Rochelle

With its maritime legacy and a port that dates back to the 13th century, the city of La Rochelle is jam packed with history and overflowing with French heritage.

This place has long been a firm favourite with French tourists who revel in an old town full of 14th century half-timber town houses. Not to mention it was the very centre of French trade and exploration to the Americas for centuries.

While its importance has faded over the years, it is still a city with a fascinating legacy that is ripe for exploring in both summer and winter. And let’s not forget those beaches. Well this is France, after all, so it really is a case of take your pick.

Saturday 13th May is reserved for the "Sarabande des filles", an all girls race around the town, either following the 5km or the 10km route. Many participants dress up, and the atmosphere is very much a party celebration. http://www.sarabandefillesdelarochelle.fr/sarabande/

Key Areas


The Le Phare des Baleines lighthouse, on the very western tip of the Ile de Re, is still working today but is also open to the public. Climb the 255 circular stairs to enjoy the fabulous view from the top.


The entrance to "Le Bunker" is through a small door just off the marketplace. Underground you enter the bunker which contains a quirky and fascinating museum about La Rochelle during WWII. Ask for the information folder in English. http://bunkerlarochelle9.wixsite.com/lebunkerdelarochelle
