The Residence-Club La Fayette

Located in La Rochelle, facing the Atlantic, the Residence-Club La Fayette is linked to the old port by a promenade and a cycle path that run alongside the ocean. You will quickly find yourself in the heart of the city, surrounded by the famous towers, the starting point for great maritime expeditions. In La Rochelle, the ocean itself welcomes you! It surrounds you with its spray, energizes you with its invigorating air and invites you to open up new horizons!

The Residence-Club La Fayette organizes your seminars, your family vacations, your group stays and offers accommodation, catering, rental of seminar rooms, all in a pleasant setting facing the ocean and close to downtown La Rochelle!


Who are we ?

The Residence-Club La Fayette was born from the combined desire of the Office Public de l'Habitat de La Rochelle and the LIGUE de l'Enseignement, through its VACANCES PASSION brand, to offer tourist equipment dedicated to social and family tourism in La Rochelle. Our goal is to allow everyone to meet, in a friendly atmosphere, to discover new horizons.
