For 8 mornings of 6 hours each, you will be working on the restoration of a new part of the north facade of the redoubt, facing the Atlantic Ocean. Your job will be to remove the vegetation from the facade and the coping, before removing the pointing and repointing with lime mortar. Other traditional masonry work is planned, such as repairing the stone coping and stone cutting. You will also be taking part in workshops to raise awareness of interculturality and sustainable development.

Logement et nourriture

Group accommodation in tents at the Fouras *** campsite (swimming pool, multi-sports area, WIFI, snack bar...). You must bring your own warm duvet and pillow. Bicycles are available for use around town. Food will be provided for breakfast, lunch and dinner (you will have a food budget that the leaders will manage and communicate with you throughout the workcamp). Meals will be prepared in turn by you, especially for lunch and dinner, while respecting environmental values and local resources, as well as everyone's culture (hot and cold dishes as well as vegetarian and vegan dishes will be prepared).

Situation, loisirs

Fouras-les-Bains (17450), Charente-Maritime, 20 km from La Rochelle

Leisure activities: You can enjoy a wide range of water-based activities, such as fishing and sailing with the local clubs. The beach, seaside bike rides, beach volleyball and other surprises are all there for you to discover. You can also visit museums and towns such as La Rochelle and Rochefort. The highlights of your stay will be getting to know the locals, who will be eagerly awaiting your arrival, especially at the table for an international meal.


In an idyllic setting overlooking Fort Boyard, the workcamp will involve restoring the redoubt as well as intercultural sharing between locals and volunteers in peacebuilding. Located at the mouth of the Charente, the Fouras peninsula is home to 3 harbours and 5 beaches on the Atlantic coast. The municipality of Fouras-les-Bains and the Maison des Bateleurs - Solidarités Jeunesses association have decided to renew their partnership in order to continue the restoration work on the Aiguille redoubt (fortress), said to be the largest in France.
