What people are saying about La Rochelle

Calm sea, cool weather, serene outing, sport will be for another time ... Quiet atmosphere with a friendly welcome, and reassuring if necessary, from the captain and his sailor, and on returning to port, a finger of Pineau (but pilot in the water!) to complete the presentation of the maritime environment and history: just what you need to know Experience to recommend, it was 2:30 am, on a catamaran, in the morning
