Rochefort-sur-Mer is one of the main communes of the Marennes-Oléron basin. This recent city built in the seventeenth century houses a superb heritage that earned it the status of a city of art and history. Rochefort’s history is intimately linked to the sea. For three centuries, many ships of the Royal Navy emerged brand new from the Arsenal Maritime, nicknamed the “Versailles de la Mer”.
