Near the island of Oléron and off the coast of Fouras is the island of Aix, a tiny crescent of land barely 700m wide. Ideal for walks and bike rides, the island of Aix is one of the unmissable destinations in the Charente Maritime.
A magnificent nature
Take advantage of your stay in Saint-George d'Oléron to contemplate the landscapes of the island: a magnificent nature made up of wild creeks and cliffs, large sandy beaches and pine forests, which have earned it the status of "remarkable natural site". Lovers of beautiful walks in a green setting will appreciate this!
The historical heritage of the island of Aix
The island is still home to numerous forts and walls dating from the time when it served as a strategic site for the Rochefort arsenal. Many other nuggets are also worth visiting, such as the Napoleonic Museum, the African Museum and the Saint-Martin Church.
