    Has Anyone Been to La Rochelle?

    We have been to La Rochelle many times but have always flown from Southampton as that is where we live. We love it and have been with our two young sons (went for 2 weeks) as well as by ourselves and other friends for long weekends. The town is lovely with a couple of sandy beaches, nice walks along the port and yachting marina and plenty of cafes several with views of the Vieux Port and the sea if you go to Les Minimes. They have an aquarium and the old town is lovely. We stay at at The Hotel Marine for the weekend trips as it overlooks the old port, if you book a sea view and we have always enjoyed looking out of the window with fabulous views of the Harbour Towers, listening to the people chatting underneath outside the bars and cafes. Easy to drive to Ile de Re accessible via a bridge from La Rochelle. Not all that south really for predictable sunshine, latest we have been is September.
  2. Looking for a full height walk in run for my Eglu Classic, if anybody has one for sale. Willing to travel up to 50 miles from Southampton to collect.
