Châtelaillon by train, by bike or on foot : the beautiful idea

The car? We will do without it this weekend! If we open the trunk, it will be that of the treasures of the resort. Calm, disconnection from everyday life and preserved setting: it is priceless. And if we brake, it will be to better let ourselves be carried… On foot, by bike or by train, Châtelaillon has not finished doing you good! 🌿

Chatelaillon by train

Vacations on the right track!

We’re coming! 🎟️

Coming from Paris, Poitiers or Tours? Opt for an outbound TGV, direction La Rochelle:

🚝 Paris ➡️ La Rochelle: 3h

🚝 Bordeaux ➡️ La Rochelle : 2h

🚝 Nantes ➡️ La Rochelle : 2h

To reach Châtelaillon-Plage, we then jump on a TER. 7 minutes of travel with a view on the sea: the children will not even have time to get impatient…

Châtelaillon, two minutes of stop ! Good news, the station is ideally located in the center of the resort. Once you’ve arrived on the platform, all you have to do is calmly return to your accommodation. You haven’t found it yet? Take a look here.

Let’s go again! 🎫

Direction the white La Rochelle for a breath of spring air. You drop your bike in the train and ride along the coastline to the station. 500 meters further you are in the city center, in the freshness of the port. Shuttle or bus, it’s up to you to choose to cross then the bridge of the island of Ré.

We’re exploring! 🎒

➡️ Rochefort and its Fort Boyard (15 mn away)

➡️ Saintes and its Roman heritage (30 mn away)

➡️ Bordeaux and its famous water mirror (1h30 away)

Psst: Guess what? La Rochelle could become the first French zero carbon agglomeration by 2040. We’re keeping our fingers crossed! 🤞🏻

Châtelaillon by bike


To discover the resort from North to South, we choose freedom with a well-equipped two-wheeler. Would you rather rent? Our 3 experts get in the saddle:

Want to see life in yellow? Nothing could be easier with Yélo self-service bicycles! Pay (a small fee), borrow and go faster than lightning. You can find them at the Tourist Office and near the train station. Let’s go for a ride!

The good plan: Some hotels make bicycles available during your stay. What about yours?

Châtelaillon on foot

Greener City

Chatelaillon by train is fine, but nothing will replace a real stroll under the sun to enjoy the charm of the season. Stroll, survey, crisscross: all pretexts are good to put your bags and radiate in the resort …
