After the Bay of Châtelaillon comes a pretty seaside section before heading back inland towards the ‘royal city’ of Rochefort. While the middle section of this route might appear somewhat commonplace, the remarkable town of Rochefort is well worth exploring.

To Châtelaillon, follow a seafront path for several kilometres.  Exercise caution on the entrance to the city centre as the lanes are shared with cars.  The majority of the following section is on cycle lanes which runs through La route départementale 110 (D110) until it reaches the outskirts of Rochefort.  At Rochefort the lanes are shared by general traffic but this is a very pleasant stage to take a break. 


Alternative towards Fouras - on a cycle path and a very quiet road.

  • Lack of signage - Jane

    This is a lovely place to be cycling but lack of signage totally spoils a pleasant experience! If you are going to cycle the trail I would suggest buying local maps as the free ones from TI centres aren’t detailed enough.
