    • Fouras-les-Bains, the place to rest and enjoy the seaside in a traditional French seaside resort This wooded peninsula with large seaside villas offers the most exceptional panorama on the islands of Charente-Maritime. Situated right bank of the Charente river, it was originally a fishermen harbor and a strategic place to protect the estuary.

      It is still a well-protected town with 4 maritime forts. The beach resort opened in the late 19th century. At that time an impressive array of hotels, castles, cottages, villa, were built and a casino was created. Today there is a choice of 5 sandy beaches for sunbathing, relaxing or sailing.

      Soak up the casual and cool atmosphere in Fouras-les-Bains, strolling along the shore, in the pedestrian street. Spend an evening at the casino's machines and cinema, take a bike ride along the coastline and taste the speciality of the peninsula : oysters...

      From the Pointe-de-la-Fumée, take the ferry for a stopover on the Aix Island. Two steps away from the estuary, go to Saint Laurent de la Prée and indulge in a round of golf.

      Welcome to the tourist office. Our friendly team of knowledgeable staff can provide information and advice on a wide range of subjects to help you plan your trip and to share tips to discover Rochefort Ocean.

    Un très bon accueil avec de multiples brochures et d'excellentes conseils pour vous orienter ! Un bel endroit où vous pouvez également contempler sur les cimaises les oeuvres d'artistes ! Vous pouvez aussi en sortant bénéficier de la fraîcheur engendré par les chênes verts entourant l'office de tourisme ! En période de canicule c'est un site particulièrement remarquable pour le confort corporel !

    4 / 5 Reviews posted by Bob Q (Saumur) on 12/05/2018

    Helpful staff with reasonable English spoken. Plenty of 'flyers' available, a must visit if you are not sure of what is available in the area.
