La Rochelle-Bordeaux

Salty Air and Fine Wine 

Extend your summer and relax, between the ancient city of La Rochelle (half-way down the Atlantic coast) and the Bassin d’Arcachon, near Bordeaux and its vineyards. The flexible itinerary allows some to wander about town by foot, while others take off hunting in the countryside. Vintage Bordelais and cognac, oysters and seafood, foie gras and canelés... the region is a paradise for gourmets! And for those who appreciate beautiful panoramas and salty air will definitely be amazed by the Marais Poitevin, Île de Ré, Île d’Oléron, Dune du Pyla (60 million cubic meters of sand!), as well as Niort, La Rochelle, Rochefort and Bordeaux, whose bridge is inscribed on UNESCO’s World Heritage List.
