Consider staying near LA ROCHELLE

  • 55 minutes from Fontenay.
  • Fantastic shops, restaurants, and picturesque walks.
  • Quick Drive over the bridge to the island of Ile de Re.

Located on the Bay of Biscay, La Rochelle’s history has mostly involved the sea, and today it has a large pleasure boat marina. Thus, its heart is the picturesque "Vieux Port" ("Old Harbour"). The city retains a rich architectural heritage, and has an aquarium, attractive gardens and a natural-history museum.

 Wednesday AM.
Head home at your leisure. Consider a stop off at Manoir de l'Automobile on your way north. Address: 4 Rue de la Cour Neuve, 35550 Lohéac, France. +33 2 99 34 02 32.
