La Rochelle
Driving on the narrow streets can be difficult in La Rochelle so walking or biking will give you the best view of the pale stone buildings that give the Vieux Port, or old port, a distinctly Mediterranean quality.
On the 12th (Sun), contemplate the waterfront views at Vieux Port. On the 13th (Mon), you'll have a packed day of sightseeing: meet the residents at Zoo de La Palmyre.

For where to stay, reviews, photos, and tourist information, you can read our La Rochelle trip builder site.

Cardiff, UK to La Rochelle is an approximately 6-hour flight. You can also take a train; or do a combination of car and train. The time zone difference moving from Greenwich Mean Time to Central European Standard Time is 1 hour. Traveling from Cardiff in August, you will find days in La Rochelle are somewhat warmer (28°C), and nights are about the same (18°C). Cap off your sightseeing on the 14th (Tue) early enough to go by car to Les Eyzies-de-Tayac-Sireuil.

Les Eyzies-de-Tayac-Sireuil

Les Eyzies-de-Tayac-Sireuil ©
Best known for its discovery of the first five skeletons of Cro-Magnons, the earliest known examples of Homo sapiens sapiens, Les Eyzies-de-Tayac-Sireuil is home to the rock shelter that held skeletons included a fetus, and remarkably modern looking skulls with a much rounder shape than the earlier Neanderthal.
Visiting Rocher des Aigles and Le Gouffre de Proumeyssac will get you outdoors. Venture out of the city with trips to La Foret des Singes (in Rocamadour), Chateau de Castelnaud (in Castelnaud-la-Chapelle) and Gouffre de Padirac (in Padirac). There's still lots to do: relax in the rural setting at Ferme du Brusquand.
