ACCESS AND LOCATION
The best way to reach La Rochelle is by train
Between 4 and 8 trains come through the Gare TGV
each day from Paris (3 hours 15 minutes travel time), as well as several regional trains. A taxi can bring you directly to LA RESIDENCE DE FRANCE for 6 or 7€, in less than five minutes
If you’re coming by car
, you will most likely want to take highway A10 to Niort if you’re coming from the north, or to Saintes if you’re arriving from the South. A designated fast lane will take you almost directly to the centre of town.
Next, follow the signs reading LA RESIDENCE DE FRANCE, or follow signs for the covered market.
For only 10 € per day, you can leave your car easily in our parking lot.
