Ile d'Aix: Tahiti Village's big hit

The village of Aix, fortified by Vauban, is close to our campsite in Saint Palais sur mer, in the heart of the Pertuis d'Antioche, between the Ile d'Oléron and Fouras.

The island of Aix is a crescent of land, 3km by 700 metres, bordered by beaches, creeks and rocks covered with oysters, where pines and cypresses grow: a land of tranquillity for cycling, walking or horse-drawn carriage rides, on the landscaped paths, often flowered with hollyhocks.

After a 20 minute boat ride from Fouras, you can discover the Ile d'Aix and live at the rhythm of the sea and nature.

Do not hesitate to come and ask at the campsite reception for more information about the crossing.
