TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Le Galion Saint Martin de Re
Small hotel on the islad of Ille de Re in Saint Martin de Re. Great location, just a stones throw from the town center, with great views of the coast. Very comfortable rooms, friendly staff. WiFi works a treat. Plenty of free parking in the hotel grounds. Highly recommended.

We then take a last walk around La Rochelle harbour including a tour of the Saint Nicola's tower, one of two guarding the entrance to the harbour. It's a great view from the top, an ...
... old part of town. We take a scenic walk around the towers, parks and the buildings of the oldest part of town. We also have a look through a WWII German bunker built towards the end of the war - interesting. We have lunch and the it's time for the harbour tour. We head out from the nice calm inner harbour, past the two towers, have a look at the marina along the way where there appears to be tens of thousands of yachts moored (MIGHT be ...
