In the prestigious setting of a fully restored 18th century merchant mansion, situated in the heart of the historical city and listed in the official Additional Register of the Historical Monuments of la Rochelle, two magnificent halls are available for private hire, with furniture and art objects of the period, French as well as Indian, Chinese and Japanese, with independent access from the 74 Chemin du rempart (the rampart lane) through a garden and a grand staircase.

La Résidence des Indes also offers the unique setting of a cabinet of tribal curiosities, in the spirit of the 18th century.

These three halls habour a tea room, which is open every afternoon, except Mondays and Tuesdays. Outside opening hours, they can be privately hired to organize receptions or events.

The two halls, small and large, have a combined area of 82m² that can accommodate up to sixty persons standing or fifty persons sitting, with the additional capacity of 16 seats over the 35 m² of the adjacent cabinet of curiosities. These three modular spaces can be combined over the day to suit all types of events and receptions. You may consult us to receive a tailor-made offer.

The grand hall is the perfect venue for cultural events, for which an audience of chamber capacity is the ideal fit. La Résidence des Indes regularly organizes its own cultural events under the «Escales au Salon » banner, the programme of which is mentionned on the “Events” page.
