Ideas for holidays, weekends and trips in Saintes and its surroundings
Now held on an annual basis, the Chocolate Fair in La Rochelle celebrates high quality chocolate. There are major fairs and exhibitions that take place on a global scale and at La Rochelle visitors can uncover chocolate made by artisan chocolatiers, and it goes without saying there will be the opportunity to taste some of the fine chocolate – this event is held late November/ early December. Before heading out, make some time to discover Saintes with its quaint streets and stunning Cathedral. After a relaxing day in the town, you might want to go for something a bit livelier: livelier: the Jazz between the Two Towers Festival is a major event that attracts guests who wish to indulge in a full plethora of jazz music. With guests across all genres of jazz, the La Rochelle public is treated to some magical compositions, and children are not ignored either as there are activities and workshops specially designed for them. This is held in early October. There are also many other festivals and events that should be taken in when visiting the area, including Exposure Paintings and Mosaics, Humour and Theatre Cocorico, the Festival of Science and many more. There are also many other sights that should not be ignored, such as the Baths of St. Saloine and the Aqueduct. Book your room with the Campanile Saintes hotel and start planning your break today.
