Situated at the mouth of Charente, the Fouras Peninsula is home to 3 ports and 5 beaches on the Atlantic coast. Following 8 international workcamps carried out between 2015 and 2019, the town of Fouras-les-Bains and the association Maison des Bateleurs – Solidarités Jeunesses wished to renew their partnership in 2020 in order to continue the rehabilitation work on the Aiguille fort (known as the largest in France). In an idyllic setting with a view of Fort Boyard, the work will consist of rehabilitating the redoubt, a fortification system built by Vauban to protect the town of Fouras from a possible invasion from an enemy landing by the sea.
