A blog meet-up on the beach?

Friends of ours own some amazing gites in La Rochelle and have finally set up a blog and website to promote them a bit. They have some free slots available this summer so take a look by clicking here!

La Rochelle has hundreds and possibly thousands of holiday homes available to rent and this year with 11 direct flights from the UK and Ireland, La Rochelle is set to be busier then ever. If you wanted to have a relaxing week or two surrounded by sunflower fields, our pals gites are perfect (this year in any case, the crops can be rotated!).

What is a gite? It is basically a self-contained house or apartment (generally house with large grounds) with every utensil required to spend a few weeks living like a local or relaxing in peace. In the USA I guess these are called Villas or Condo’s to rent?

Why am I promoting their website and blog? They are friends, I want their website and business to succeed and more importantly, would love to meet more fuelmyblog people in La Rochelle this summer. Thomas Hamburger Jnr is popping in for a cafe, who else?!

So this got me thinking of hosting a blog meet up on the beach in La Rochelle, with free wine and wifi organised and we could even live blog it! Here is a link to the local airport, ryanair are a great source of cheap flights, I fly with them almost weekly and often pay £30 return including tax.. So now there is no excuse, free wine, oysters and wifi, with my friend’s gite and hopefully good company, this could be a Pimms moment!

Take a look at the gite if interested, drop them a line. If you fancy meeting up in La Rochelle, drop me one 😉

  1. I LOVE La Rochelle and the Atlantic Coast region. Stayed in I’le De Re last year! We have a holdiay a bit further south north of Bordeux but send me info please!

    BTW very envious of your lifestyle (living in France and working in London!)



  2. Would love to come to La Rochelle as it is 29 years since I was there (August 1979 to be precise)
    Unfortunately I have just booked my holiday in Madrid in August and unfortunately the coffers will not allow me to do both this summer …. drat !!!!

  3. Looking forward to meeting up with you, Kevin! Although I am something of a lapsed blogger or late, I still enjoy dropping in on FMB and finding new ones to peruse. But how will we recognise one another? In true Harry McFry style, I shall carry a rolled up copy of The Birkenhead Beagle. That idea of a Pimms appeals immensely, by the way!

  4. Oh Kevin,
    This would truly be a dream come true for Walter and me. We never had a honeymoon. But, as of right now we don’t have the funds or the time. Oh but one can always continue to dream.

    After all, dreams still do come true!!
