The Youth Hostal of La Rochelle!

Over the last years, I have been telling you in my La Rochelle post how I came here and why. The repeated story is this one. It was found by chance, as my oldest son studied hôtellerie/restaurant in Paris and needed a semester of on hands study here several years back . He came back very happy of the experience ,and we that had by passed the town on several occassion decided it was time to visit.

And voilà, that is how we came to know La Rochelle; for a change it was my oldest son who found the spot. And what a spot it is, we have come back several times even in Christmas time and it has been wonderful. However, I have missed to tell you where he stayed! and this is the time to tell you a bit about the Auberge de Jeunesse or youth hostal of La Rochelle! Oh yes,you know this is in the Charente Maritime dept 17 of the Nouvelle Aquitaine region of my belle France!

The Auberge De Jeunesse is located near the marina, the hostel offers quick access to the towers of La Rochelle, which is a 26-minute walk away. This property is located 1.7 km from Espace Encan de La Rochelle. Located at Avenue des Minimes, the property is close to Plage des Minimes.

The closest Rond-Point de l’Europe bus stop is 350 meters from the hostel. From the port quai Duperré is about 17 mins by car and 26 mins on foot.
