A favorite holiday spot for the French, La Rochelle is said to have the third highest quality of life in France. The area is known for seafood and sunshine.

Day-to-day life is vibrant and active in La Rochelle. Most days see folks of all ages enjoying the salty sea air—grocery shopping at the historic market, playing cards or board games in the park, taking a bike ride, hitting the beach, or simply enjoying a crisp glass of local white wine next to the harbor.
