This is a spacious house of character (former échoppe renovated and extended in 2000). It is in a quiet residential area, only 20 minutes pleasant walk to the historic old port of La Rochelle with its excellent restaurants and beautiful views over the harbour. It is also 10 to 15 minutes by bike (25 minutes on foot) to the nearest sandy town beach - Plage de la Concurrence. An enclosed walled and secluded garden of trees and shrubs runs two sides of the house facing south and west. There is a small swimming pool to the front of the house, which for small children can be gated off from the lawn and terrace. The terrace has a barbecue and a large garden table with 8 matching chairs; it also has an awning to allow guests to enjoy shade or sunshine. There are climbing roses and numerous colourful shrubs.
Inside, the living accommodation downstairs is mostly open plan. There is a bright and spacious living room with three sofas (one is a sofa bed), and a television. Through an archway you reach a dining area and beyond a kitchen with breakfast bar, fridge/freezer, hob, small oven and a dishwasher.
