La Flotte, over 400 years of heritage
This village of stones and water stands out for its rich heritage. By bike or by walking along the seafront from the village's port, a stop at the Abbaye des Châteliers, founded in the 12th century, is a must. The remains of the abbey are enough to make you dream of its past splendor. A little further along the coast, at the exit of the village, you will discover the secrets of the oldest military building of the Ile de Ré, the Fort la Prée, dating from the 17th century. Let us tell you about its 400 years of history along the historical buildings and on the heights of the Fort, an activity in La Flotte not to be missed!
