Fort Louvois

The little brother of Fort Boyard!

Built by Vauban, Fort Louvois is the last construction ordered by Louis XVI.
It served as a rampart to prevent the entry of enemy ships into the basin. It offers a breathtaking view of the city of Bourcefrance-Le-Chapuis and the sea.
Built on the chapuis rock between the island of Oleron and the mainland, the fort is accessible at low tide by a 400 meter submersible causeway and at high tide by boat.
You will visit the keep, the barracks, the food hall and the powder magazine.
