Welcome to the official website of LA JARRIE Town
The village of La Jarrie
At a crossroads near the large urban center of La Rochelle city and
the coast's many beaches, lies the ancient village of La Jarrie
with its some 2800 inhabitants.
Proud of 11th century roots, this county-town of canton continually
renovates and develops its facilities as well as a new center-village
to reinforce a formerly strong identity.
From the Middle Ages to the present, this village hosted notable figures,
religious and pilgrims, and kings of France have stayed here too.
By design and well maintained through the years, are La Jarrie's
many alley ways which lead inhabitants and visitors alike to and from
the center's tree-lined square. Although a small community, La Jarrie
has all the modern conveniences found in larger cities while maintaining
the comfortable ways of small town life.
There are sport facilities, including a large indoor tennis pavilion
with three courts as well as outdoor tennis courts. A gymnasium
and a football stadium provide spectator events as well as opportunities
for clubs and teams to practice. La Jarrie also offers cultural opportunities
such as musical concerts of varied styles including jazz, classical
and modern popular music, and theater productions, game festival
In visiting the surrounding countryside, you will discover Romanesque
churches, the Marais Poitevin, the beautiful islands of Ré, Oléron
and Aix and some more.
