Rochefort is just a few kilometres from the mouth of the Charente into the Atlantic Ocean. And it is precisely this location that makes this small town so attractive. Rochefort is not a pure seaside resort, but nevertheless offers access to the sea. Its sheltered and strategic location has made Rochefort an important port city hundreds of years ago, and you can discover the traces of the maritime history of the city everywhere by staying in an apartment in Rochefort. From the historic harbour with the National Marine Museum to the replica of a frigate from 1779, almost everything in Rochefort revolves around proximity to the sea. At the same time, your private holiday home in Rochefort is not far away from the beaches of the French Atlantic coast, despite its sheltered location. And even the greatest curiosity of the city you can hardly overlook on your arrival: The famous floating ferry of Rochefort, the last such construction in France, connects the town with Échillais on the other side of the Charente. Passengers are carried in a gondola from one bank to the other by a 50-metre-high bridge girder.
Apartments in Rochefort: between the Atlantic coast and the interior
When you are on holiday in a private accommodation, you can explore the coastal landscapes according to your own taste, similar to couchsurfing in Rochefort, without having to forego the cosiness of your own apartment. Only ten kilometres away are the sandy beaches of the Atlantic coast, which flow into the island of Île d’Oléron in the south. There is so much to discover here, from historic forts and citadels to a nature reserve with rare animal species and the island’s popular beaches. You can visit the Île d’Oléron from an accommodation in Le Château-d’Oléron or from Rochefort as part of a day trip. North of Rochefort the old harbour town La Rochelle invites you to a visit. For a longer stay you can also find Apartments in La Rochelle.
