Welcome to La Flotte-en-Ré!
A short tour of the village of La Flotte
A former fishing village that has now become a charming "Village of stones and water", La Flotte-en-Ré has everything to please! Campers will enjoy discovering or rediscovering the small flowered alleyways with their typical white houses, strolling in the pedestrian streets of the centre, or sitting on the sunny terraces of the bars and restaurants of the marina from where you can watch the boats coming and going. On summer evenings, it is here that the festival is in full swing and the village comes alive to the rhythm of fireworks, shows, concerts and dances.
The medieval market of La Flotte-en-Ré is a must.
An unmissable rendezvous for floats and floaters as well as holidaymakers, the medieval-inspired market is a real invitation to stroll. Much more than just a market, it is an attraction in itself and a site in its own right that is a must to visit during your camping holiday at La Flotte-en-Ré! In an atypical setting from another time, you will enjoy strolling through the paved courtyard, passing under the arcades and making your way through the covered market in the middle of an anthology of scents and flavours. For the record, despite appearances, the market does not date back to the Middle Ages. It was built in the 19th century. Still, the magic is working. Tourists are delighted and look twice, so perfect is the illusion!
Set off to attack the Fort de La Prée, the oldest military fort on the Ile de Ré!
Construit en 1625 avec des pierres provenant de l'abbaye des Châteliers puis remanié par Vauban en 1685 qui ordonne la construction de nouveaux bâtiments plus adaptés, le Fort de La Prée est la plus ancienne forteresse de l'île de Ré. On y découvre une exposition permanente consacrée aux mousquetaires du roi et de nombreuses animations en été (les enfants pourront même se déguiser en garde du roi !). Au programme : visite des salles d'armes, la poudrière, la chapelle avec en prime de beaux points de vue depuis les fortifications...
