What could be better than cycling around La Rochelle?

Pedal through the streets of our maritime city, dare to escape on two wheels to the city's beaches, to the Ile de Ré, and all from our hotel in La Rochelle. Nothing could be more natural for a city dedicated to cycling, and for Cosy Hôtels, which offers you a cycling-focused holiday that will make you want to take your cycling further*.

With its many seaside cycle paths, La Rochelle is one of France's leading cycling destinations. And what a setting! On the town side, you can stroll through the historic districts of Saint-Nicolas, Saint-Sauveur and Saint-Eloi, bounce along the cobbled streets of Rue de l'Escale, explore the narrow arcaded streets and be tempted by the designer boutiques. On the seafront, in the shade of the century-old trees of Parc Charruyer and the beautiful facades of Chic Genette, the light of the Atlantic will entice you to set your wheels down on the coastal path, heading for Chef-de-Baie beach. Strap on your bike and enjoy the sand and greenery.

A few turns of the wheel and you'll be on your way up and then down the elegant bridge to discover the villages of the Ile de Ré. Then it's on to the hundred or so kilometres of cycle paths on this unique island: hollyhocks, white houses, green shutters and picture-postcard fishing ports...

So if you want to enjoy this art of living à la rochelaise, count on us! Our ‘Cosy Hôtels’ bikes are waiting for you and can be easily reserved on your arrival: basket on the front to carry your beach bag and your last shopping, lock, helmet...  These elegant ‘little queens’ can be hired by the day or half-day.

And if you'd like to take a cargo bike (to bring your little ones with you), a tandem bike or an electric bike, we can't recommend the good address of Green Bike, of which we are the proud partners: located in Le Gabut and just a stone's throw from our hotel, this hire company offers a wide range of bikes, and a 10% discount applies to your hire if you bring your room card with you.

During the summer, don't forget to book your trusty steed in advance, on their website using the code ‘Cosy’: https://location-greenbike.com/location-velos-trottinettes/ 

*Cosy Hotels have also been awarded the ‘Accueil Vélo’ label.
