We’re off to La Rochelle. We’ll take in the old town, keep cool beneath the arcades, and drive open the door to the Hôtels d’Armateurs on our way to the Vieux Port. Have you already been to the Bunker? You have to! The aquarium, too. The kids will love it! And then we’re setting a course for the Ile de Ré! On the island, we’ll hire bikes to tour the salt marshes, and then we’ll pick up the trail to the Fortifications of Vauban. Feeling peckish? How do you feel about seafood?
