La Rochelle is a popular tourist location on the Western Coast of France.
It is a seaport located on the warm Gulf waters of the Atlantic Ocean.
Although temperatures drop quite low during the winter and autumn seasons, they never dip below the freezing point, thanks to the mild Mediterranean climate.
Much of these weather conditions can be attributed to the warm waters of the Atlantic Ocean, which surround the city and regulate the temperatures with the sea breeze.
