Chez Rogers

Chez Rogers in L'Absie

Chez Rogers accommodates comfortably a total of 4/6. Canadians welcomed

I advocate March / April or Sept / Oct for several reasons the weather is excellent for swimming near La Rochelle, Foire du Vin a week of great wines sales at local Super U as much free tastings of some great wines. If you look into all the options on the Chez Rogers web site there are plenty of ways to Chill out. Local golf, wineries Chateaux etc.

Rental of Chez Rogers for 2 weeks from $765.20 Can (500 euros) and $918.24 Can (600 euros)

Food & drink in France is quite reasonable. Gasoline costs more however.
