Bonjour à tous,
My husband and I will be moving to the Charent Maritime dept next year. We are both Americans, living in San Jose, California. We're thinking of La Rochelle. I have never been to this area, but it was recommended to me because of bicycling (which I love to do) and it's near beaches. Plus it was described as a quiet, yet lively town especially on weekends.
I have been taking French classes for several years and hope to improve so that I can immerse myself in some other types of fun classes in La Rochelle. I thought that might be a good way to meet people and improve my language skills.
I would love to hear what you all think of La Rochelle; and if you are aware of fun, creative classes for adults (art, cooking, etc) in that vicinity. We will not have a car, and we are both retired.
