La Corderie Royale

An invitation to escape through the theme of the sea, voyages or the navy. An exotic taste thanks to the coffees, teas, sugars and chocolates coming from all over the world as well as a vast choice of rare spices that make you think of the scent of islands. Here, the maritime spirit is within everyone’s reach: marine deco, table art, clothes, jewellery, small items of furniture, paintings and souvenirs made in Corderie Royale.

 

The Maritime Bookshop

Designed in the shape of a boat’s hull under construction, the Maritime Bookshop has a unique collection of 8 000 titles, covering all types of maritime works: from books for young people to specialist reviews, not forgetting art books, poetry, cartoons, History, etc. The Maritime Bookshop welcomes some 300 000 visitors each year and attracts a wide range of people from walkers desiring to find out more about the Royal Rope Factory to keen readers of ocean literature.

Wonderful website you have here but I was curious if you knew of any discussion boards that cover the same topics discussed in this article? I’d really love to be a part of online community where I can get comments from other knowledgeable individuals that share the same interest. If you have any recommendations, please let me know. Many thanks!

We would love to visit your museum whilst on holiday near Rochefort. Can we bring our well behaved dog with us into the museum?

Thank you

Good morning,
You can visit the museum with your dog but it must be in a basket or in a bag.
Best regards
