Great find.

We've visited this little community twice now as it's a really lovely place to go. The height of season all the shops will be open and cafes etc but in September it is very quiet and only the more touristy shops are open. But we had a nice coffee and cake. The old buildings of the forte are still there and you can easily imagine how it was a popular town for goods exchange in the past.

We went here we with our teenage children and younger children aged 6 and 8. We really enjoyed walking around the fort walls and window shopping in the quaint shops. Lovely couples of hours had by all there are lovely little coffee shops as well.

Views and reasonably easy walking
Jun 2016 • Couples
Many people visit Brouage for a look at the church and to have a meal. The treasure of the place is, however, the walk round the town walls. Starting from the North gate (where there are toilets) the walk is round the top of the walls (no drops to worry about) with views across the marshes outside and the charming houses inside. There are turrets to see; a huge storehouse; a gunpowder store. Access to some features is via paths down. Not for wheelchairs and shoes are best. Worth it

Lovely old fort. Lots to see. Dating 1550 the fort is in the middle of salt marshes. My grandchildren like walking the walls and going in the turrets.

Great little place to visit

This little place is full of history and is a must if you are in the area. Founded in 1555 it was the hub of the salt industry, a small port which traded with pirates, merchant and military ships on their way overseas. It housed Richelieu's arsenal so the fortifications were put to good use. There is lots to see, old buildings, gift shops, turrets, high wall and is amazing to think this was a port as it now stands in the middle of marshy oyster beds.
