La Rochelle Airport serves the city of La Rochelle and the wider Poitou-Charentes region of Eastern France. La Rochelle is one of the most popular tourist cities on the west coast of France and it's easy to see why with its fantastic selection of restaurants, beaches, museums, and intriguing architecture. The Towers of La Rochelle and the Old Port define the city's character, and attractions like the Aquarium La Rochelle highlight its maritime personality traits.
Car hire in La Rochelle Airport allows you to make the 20km drive to Plage de Chatelaillon, one of the best beaches in the region. Rent a car in La Rochelle and enjoy the entire Poitou-Charentes region of France.
The spectacle of La Rochelle at night is hugely atmospheric with the nicely lit Towers of La Rochelle forming the cornerstones of the beautifully rustic Old Port (Vieux Port). The harbour is the perfect place to enjoy a reasonably priced seafood dinner. Continuing the fishy theme, the Aquarium La Rochelle is one of the world's finest aquariums, attracting thousands of visitors each year with its exotic sea life specimens and thoughtful presentation. This one is an excellent choice for all the family!
For those that have come to relax, the beaches here are excellent; Plage de Chatelaillon is a peaceful beach around 2km down the coast on the N137. Hiring a car at La Rochelle Airport is an excellent idea for those who appreciate a few days on the beach as part of their itinerary.
If you rent a car at La Rochelle Airport, you can also make the short drive to the Ile de Re, just off the mainland. Here you'll find some more wonderful beaches such as Plage Gros Jonc and the historic lighthouse: Le Phare de Baleines. The Ile De Re is a 28km on the D21.

Please note that from 15 Nov to 15 Apr many cities are required by law to restrict the circulation to only vehicles equipped with snow chains or winter tyres. For a summary of the orders, please visit www.poliziadistato.it. To comply with the regulations, in specific locations subject to this requirement, vehicles are equipped with snow chains - the price is included in the rental charges through the cost of "Winterization Fee". At pick-up if you decide to bring your own snow chains or do not intend on driving on the roads subject to this requirement, you may decline the equipment by signing the appropriate release form. This change will be reflected in the rental charges. For more information on the fees, please click here. In all other regions, we recommend that you check before renting if your journey includes one of the roads subject to this requirement and therefore request the snow chains, if necessary.
