Rent a holiday rental accommodation in the Gabut district of La Rochelle
With 160 kilometres of bike paths and city bikes, it’s really easy to travel the city at its own pace before returning to its base. What if yours was just in the district of the Wooden City and the Port of Gabut? Guided tour. It is its low wooden houses, former boat repair shops, that gave this neighborhood the nickname «Wooden City». Stretching west of the Great Basin, it was completely refurbished following a fire and now has a media library, a university and several museums. But above all, in addition to some recent buildings with wooden facades that are worth a look, this area offers a walk along the sea to the port of Les Minimes, absolutely essential by the Tamaris driveway. In addition, do not miss the Gabut Lift Bridge, which is located at the entrance of the former Trawler Basin. It also allows you to reach the Wooden City from the city center without making a big detour. Clever! And above all, this bridge alone is worth the detour. Swivelling like a drawbridge, on a transverse axis, the Gabut bridge was originally built for the port of Marseille in 1927. Transported to La Rochelle by sea in 1936, before being reassembled, this mobile metal structure, once lifted, allows to free a passage of 16.50 meters.
