I would count La Rochelle as one of the finest towns in France and I am always looking for a chance to visit.
Shopping under the arcades on a hot summer`s day can be refreshing and rewarding while a meal on the port by the towers is a must. For gourmets look for the restaurants of the Coutenceau family which include Les Flots on the port. The market is a dazzling display of local produce and try to disappear into the side streets to find hidden gems. Children and adults alike will love the aquarium.
The pearl of the Atlantic, Ile de Re boasts a Mediterranean climate and is peppered with delightful coastal villages with quaint harbours and vibrant bars and retaurants.
Approach the island over the iconic bridge to enter the land of the rich and famous. The choice is yours but do visit Saint Martin to climb the belltower of the church and to eat one of their delicious ice creams as you take in the sites. And on to Ars en Re with its narrow streets and unusual church steeple, not forgetting to stop at the Cafe de Commerce for a drink or meal. So on to the Phare des Baleines to watch the sun set into the Atlantic.
Five minutes from Pistoulet you will find the Clos Gourmande, a small, excellent Michelin starred restaurant.
To the west of Niort (worth a visit), lies the Marais Poitevin, a land of mystery, flora and fauna.Tere you may hire a boat and wend your way through the canals and conches, immersing yourself in Mother Nature, it`s sites and aromas. Visit the villages of Coulon, Arcais qnd Mallezais with it`s ancient Abbey ruin and enjoy local specialities in one of the many restaurants.The starred restaurant, Auberge de La Roussille can be found at Niort Saint Liguaire.
