A VILLAGE DEDICATED TO LEISURE, CULTURE, AND SPORTS, IN THE HEART OF THE CHARENTE MARITIME AREA.
An old 17th century domain open to the public that offers cultural, recreational, and sports activities, a space open to wellness and events, located in the heart of a 7-hectare biodiversity reserve. The renovated buildings and park aim to restore the atmosphere evoked by traditional villages, with its central square, bell tower, marketplace, grand hall, offices, cafe-bar, shops, … including a 250-vehicle parking space, a fountain, a farm and botanical garden edged with canals that flow into the surrounding marsh… This unique destination is located between La Rochelle and its islands: Ré, Oléron, Madame, Aix and Le Fort Boyard.
The main venue for cultural events in East Paris, the Bellevilloise just celebrated its 10th anniversary. It has now become a French reference, a source of inspiration for many rehabilitated sites into cultural spaces. Originally a “House of the people,” the Bellevilloise in Paris has preserved the welcoming and intimate spirit of a home, unlike new standardized spaces. The same mindset applies in Rochefort, where a cosmopolitan and modern atmosphere will prevail, at a human scale.
The goal is to meet the demands of young people, families, and event professionals seeking a sensory experience (ecology, culture, wellness) with a desire to escape (unique atmosphere, harmony, esthetic) and interact socially (encounters, activities, workshops). Consequently, the protection of this 17th century heritage will pass through its transformation into a cultural and recreational space that implants itself in the heart of a territory.
The preservation of world peace and the ecological conversion of our societies in the fight against global warming are leading us to focus our attention on our only refuge, planet Earth. Therefore, the eco-village concept is particularly appealing to individuals and institutions who wish to identify with these values. It is a response to the expectations of events and culture professionals, as well as the general public in search of new experiences.
