Destination Aix Island via Fort Boyard

Aix, the ‘imperial’ island

Just 3 km long, 700 metres wide and a maximum altitude of only 9 metres above sea level! With 7 km of coastal paths, Aix is the most southern of the Ponant Islands, and the only island in the Charente-Maritime which isn’t linked to the mainland. Aix Island is ranked as a ‘site of outstanding natural beauty’. All the typical landscapes of the ‘charentais’ countryside are represented in this tiny island: creeks and sandy beaches, pine and holm oak woods, marshlands, meadows and sal pans. A true haven of tranquillity, no motorized traffic is allowed, so visitors explore on foot, by bike or by horse drawn carriage… During your visit, you may just catch a glimpse of wader birds, avocets or egrets… The island’s fortifications, with a fort erected at each end of the island, bear testimony to the historical rivalries between the kingdoms of France and England… indeed Colbert ordered the island to be fortified in order to protect the military arsenal in Rochefort. And it was here on this ‘little island’, as he called it, that Napoleon spent his final days on French soil, just after the battle of Waterloo and before his exile on St Helena.
