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.
Attractions like Phare des Baleines and Plage de Chatelaillon make great kid-friendly stops. Monolithic Church of Saint-Emilion and Quartier de l'Ile de Penotte are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Venture out of the city with trips to L'Ouvre Boites (in Le Bois-Plage-en-Re), Le phare de chassiron (in Saint-Denis d'Oleron) and Clocher Observatoire (in Saint Martin de Re). Spend the 24th (Sun) in the animal kingdom at La Vallee des Singes. And it doesn't end there: see the interesting displays at Musee des Commerces d'Autrefois, explore the activities along Vieux Port, and take a tour of Association Hermione-La Fayette.
