Vieux Port reviews
Well maintained port with lots of cafes and restaurants at one end and the Towers of La Rochelle at the other end. more »
Great character. The very ideal of La Rochelle with its two large sea facing towers. The variety of boats, motor or sailing coupled with the much larger trip sightseeing ones. A lovely spot. more »
