What could be better than cycling to 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 this 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 holiday that will make you want to go 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 browse the designer boutiques. On the seafront, in the shade of the century-old trees of Parc Charruyer and the beautiful facades of the chic Genette, the light of the Atlantic will entice you to put 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 down the elegant bridge to discover the villages of the Ile de Ré. And then there are the hundred or so kilometres of cycle paths on this unique island: Roses Trémières, 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 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 half-day or the 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 only recommend the good address of Green BikeLocated in Le Gabut, just a stone's throw from our hotel, this rental company offers a wide range of bicycles, as well as a wide range of accessories. a discount of 10 % applies to your rental by bringing your room card with you.
