La Rochelle, France is a beautiful port town on the Atlantic coast of France with strong connections to Canada since the 17th and 18th centuries when explorers and settlers set sail across the ocean. The local beaches and attractions, plus its proximity to the lovely Ile de Ré and countless surrounding historic sites, make La Rochelle an ideal centre for exploring this stimulating region of France.
