The apartment is in a residential block in a residential part of La Rochelle. It was clean and comfortable. You must pay extra for sheets and towels, which we did, but even at that we didn't even get a dish cloth or tea towel. This is a cost you can avoid by brining your own. The sheets provided at 15Euro a set were fresh and clean, but the 12Euro for a hand towel and bath towel set was steep as the towels provided had well seen better days.
The lady who showed us around the apartment was very pleasant but had little to no English. This wasn't a problem as we speak French but it might be an issue for other travellers.
There was no information provided in the apartment on the local area which was a pity. A mini Carrefour is about a seven minute walk and it is about 12 minutes to Minimes beach and maybe 1-20 minutes into town on foot. The location really is great.
The pool in the complex is nice. It isn't heated but there are some loungers and a loo so you don't have to go back upstairs!
La Rochelle is a lovely town. It is not overly lively but there is a good buzz by the port and lots of nice restaurants. We went over to Ile de Re on the bus (1 Euro each way-bargain) and we also went to Ile d'Aix. Both were fabulous.
Though the apartment sleeps six it is small and one of the rooms is in a loft with a very steep stairs up to it that would not be suitable for kids. Also once the couch bed it out it takes up much of the communal space.
There were blankets and pillows provided for free and there was always lots of hot water.
Overall this is good value in an expensive part of France and you really don't need a car if you just want to stay local.
