La Rochelle to Taizé

by french_rhubarb

Taizé is a little over 2 hours from La Rochelle. I am planning to go to Taizé for a week, but the only way I can figure out to get there is to take the train from La Rochelle up to Paris and then catch another train all the way back to Mâcon, taking more than 6 hours.

Is there a quicker way to get from La Rochelle to Taizé by public transport?

Thank you.

There is a Taizé about 2 hours from La Rochelle - but the Taizé which you reach via Macon is a totally different place in Burgundy, and the trip might well take more than 6 hours. The Taizé in Burgundy is the famous religious site. So make sure to which Taizé you really want to go.

I have checked Taizé on googlemaps and there you strangely enough get only the one which is 2 hours north-east of La Rochelle.

Not sure about which Taizé you mean. If it's the famous religious community at Taizé, then it is about 550 kms (6 hours by car). You could take a train direction Lyon. But before I research the exact schedule, you may mean
Taizé-Aizie in the Charente region. This one is indeed about 2 hour drive.

Is that better or worse? LOL (In the case of Taizé probably better, in the case of La Rochelle perhaps worse... ;-)

Travel Tips for La Rochelle

Le Gabut area

by Norali

A colourful place in the Vieux Port area (Old Harbour). With its colourful setting and those houses in wood, this reminds you of Nordic areas. Still, it's the Eastern side of Old harbour, just behind Tour St-Nicolas.

One time a location of fishmen's hubs. Now, it's a residential area, with pubs, cheap eateries and some shops (marine and sailing trinkets and tools). From what I saw and experience there, this is a place to be lived at night too. With pubs and terraces that go along the quays of Le bassin à flot. From there, a view on Quai Valin, the back of Tour St-Nicolas. All lit up at night, the view of this tower is just magical. Yellow shades with the dark blue of the sky.

It's in this area that I found one of those colourful wooden cabins that would "please" my Belgian friends. Wink to my Belgian friendz

Nip over Châtelaillon- Plage, for beach activities

by Norali

Châtelaillon-Plage is a nice beach resort 12 km South of LR. It is a kind of family spot. Nice, clean beach with a rolling- cycling path. Some bench where to sit facing the sun, near the casino.

The kind of beach with geranium pot... I don't remember about activities other than beach- oriented and the casino. It's not innocent if its name is Châtelaillon-Plage. My friend, a local, told me it's really lively in summer, full of beach acitivities: free swimming lessons, beach-volley, aquagym, trempoline as well as mini-golf and croquet.

When I was there (Sep-Oct), it was really calm with just some families walking with toddlers, some on a terrasse facing the sea (and watching the sun).. Really calm.

I appreciated there the setting. In contrary of Belgian coast, Châtelaillon could preserve its urban architecture by forbidding huge buildings along the dam. Orginal nice little villas have been kept. As for colours, they are either white either in pastel tones... See my travelogue for pictures.
