You will have the task of developping the landscape of Fort de l’Aiguille. The work will consist of demarcating the spaces that make up the integral part of the redoubt, as well as securing and protecting the site during future cultural events. You’ll need to create and install a barrier and fence around the fort’s Eastern front. Additionally you’ll have to dismantle the existing doorway, which is in poor condition and unaesthetic, in order to replace it.
In groups, in tents on Fouras’ campground *** (swimming pool, multi-sports space, WIFI, snacks …) Food will be provided, and meals will be prepared alternately by participants.
Location: Fouras-les-Bains, Charente-Maritime, 20 km from La Rochelle.
Leisure activities: You can take advantage of everything living by the ocean has to offer! Fishing, sailing with local clubs, biking along the water, and of course relaxing on the beach are just some of the things you can spend your free time enjoying. The Île d’Aix, a small car-free island in the middle of the ocean, is also available to visit by boat. Since Fouras is also a popular seaside destination, you will have the opportunity to participate in the many summer events that are put on in June.
Located at the mouth of the Charente river, the peninsula of Fouras-les-Bains is home to three harbours and five beaches along the Atlantic coast. Following the 8 international work sites that were realised between 2015 and 2019, the town of Fouras-les-Bains and the association Maison des Bateleurs – Solidarités Jeunesses wanted to renew their partnership in 2020 to continue the development of Fort de l’Aiguille (said to be the largest of its kind in France). In an idyllic setting with views of Fort Boyard, the work site will continue the delimitation work being done on the redoubt (a type of fortification system built by the French military engineer Vauban that protected Fouras from potential enemy sea invasion).
