    Corderie Royale

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Mini mechanical process

    Favorite thing: For any visitor to Rochefort, a visit to this historic place is a must..There is a lot of history to be learnt here, and visiting here is just about the best way to learn the obscured history of the French Naval developements.

    Fondest memory: My foundest memory about this place is the efforts put in place to restore this once important Heavy rope making industry for Battle Ships to a tourist attraction.

    The best aspect of France

    Favorite thing: For whatever France is today..credit has to go to the the gendarmes who had made it possible. Law and order is what France stood for and this has made this country the envie of other european countries.

    Fondest memory: In Rochefort, I made few friends, but particularly a gendarme friend who really showed me the French hospitality. Before this encounter, I always sees french people as arrogant lot. However, this friend made a lot of difference in my perception of the French people.

    Students of Various nationalities

    Favorite thing: Because of the Ecole de Gendarmerie, the sleepy town is host to students of various nationals. The french government use this facility to train international student based on Bilateral agreement.

    Fondest memory: Generally, the West of France has its own flavours. It is acote de la mere, and the air and ambience is unique. Also, the people are very private and have deep family values and ties, when compared to the inhabitants in the French Central.
