Near the Charente River, the Fouras peninsula has 3 ports and 5 beaches on the Atlantic coast. The town of Fouras-les-Bains and Maison des Bateleurs - Solidarités Jeunesses wished to renew their partnership in order to continue the rehabilitation work on Aiguille Fort (known as the largest in France). In an idyllic setting with a view of Boyard Fort, work will consist of rehabilitating the redoubt (a fortification system built by Vauban) to protect Fouras from a possible invasion.

Work: Its a continuation of the work undertaken last year by volunteers. Youll work on the restoration of a new part of the redoubt main facade in three steps. Youll help the technical leader to remove plants from the facade and replace the chalk mortar joints between the stones. Other traditional masonry works are planned, such as redoing the stone coping (walls top layer) and stonecutting.

Accomodation and food: Collective, tent at the Fouras campsite (pool, multi-sports area, WIFI, snack...). Food provided, meals prepared by you.
