Another Aire for La Rochelle. This one is free and well suited for walking into the old town of La Rochelle. Coming in on the D937 as far as the railway station. Turn right at the station onto Avenue du General De Gaulle Follow this until the road meets one comming from the left (odd shaped roundabout and traffic lights) and at traffic lights turn left at 90 degrees as if you are going over to the docks. Its quite tricky as it shows the road to be a NO ENTRY road but you need to turn immediate left before the no entry sign onto Quai de la Georgette. Then second right following camping signs, then left over bridge. Follow road to the right onto Avenue Michel Crepeau Site on right after 300 mtrs (signed). There is a service point past the aire on the right after 100 mtrs outside municipal camp site. Contrary to the Aires Guide you are not allowed to stay overnight at the service point. One bad point to note – during busy season cars were parking in the Camping – cars only area
