The Studio près de la Ville en Bois is on the first floor of a high quality private residence, overlooking a decked courtyard with palms, terracing and seating.
At 22m2 plus 6m2 balcony, it is larger than an average hotel room, but as with our other studios, with many extra facilities.
Built in 2006, the studio consists of:
Living room/bedroom with sofa, coffee table, dining table and two chairs, TV/DVD, CD radio cassette player, a direct dial telephone with answering machine (enabling dial-up internet access if you bring a laptop) and a full sized double bed with quality mattress, which folds to the wall for additional daytime living space (it is NOT a sofa-bed). A child's bed, for one child, can be provided upon request.
Kitchenette - in one corner of the living room with two ring hob, mini-oven and fridge with freezer compartment (for those ice cubes).
Entrance lobby with fitted wardrobe and safe.
Shower room/WC - with a washing machine and heated towel rail.
Balcony - large (6m) full width with double sliding patio doors, two steamer chairs, table and chairs.
Outside: Parking in the residence's secure underground parking.
Walk out of the Residence and around the landscaped lake next door you will find a number of bars and restaurants within 2 minutes walk.
A 15 minute walk takes you right to the entrance to La Rochelle's old port, with all the life of old La Rochelle. But just far enough to get away from the hustle the end of the day, to your own "home from home" .
En-route you'll see just how impressively La Rochelle blends the old with the new. The Ville en Bois quarter takes the seafaring history of La Rochelle and with imaginative use of yachting's wood and chrome creates a spectacular area that is still very much La Rochelle.
But in case you do not feel like venturing into the centre of La Rochelle every evening, within 2 mins walk from your studio in other directions is a range of local bars and restaurant.
La Rochelle well deserves its reputation as "the most attractive and unspoilt seaside town in France".
Set around its Old Port, with its famous twin towers, are a host of delights including port side bars and restaurants, old arcaded town streets, parks and gardens historical buildings such as the Hôtel de Ville, Maison Henri II or the Palais de Justice, as well as of course the Tours de la Chaîne, la Lanterne and museums of all sorts, and La Rochelle beach to relax on after a walk though the sea-front parks.
There are loads of interesting places to visit and things to do in the area, including sleepy villages and livelier towns, beaches, châteaux/wine tasting, nature reserves, outside activities (for those into them.) including fishing, horse riding, walking and bird watching - or just sitting outside bars watching the world go by.
Within easy striking distance are: Chatelallion Plage, Ile de Ré, Ile d'Oléron, St. Jean d'Angély, Angoulême, Royan, Rochefort, Cognac, Blaye, Saintes, Niort and even Bordeaux.
You'll be amazed at how easy it is to get around La Rochelle and its surrounding areas: whether by foot, bike, boat, train or bus (2 bus routes stop at the door).
Prices include: linen/towels (other than beach towels) and cleaning (some charge 25 euros per person pw); secure parking; Taxe de Sejour (often up to 10 euros per person pw); and all electricity. Also no booking fee (sometimes 25 euros per booking).
