The Route of the Carrelets in Rochefort Ocean

Embark on a sailing and poetic journey along the water with the fishing huts looming over the water.

A festival dedicated to the fishing huts of Rochefort Ocean

From the estuary of the Loire to the estuary of the Gironde, the coast is dotted with these small fishing huts on stilts typical of this part of the Atlantic coast.

It is this exceptional and singular maritime heritage that the association "Territoires Imaginaires", based in Nantes, enhances through a cultural and artistic approach.

In 2014, "Territoires Imaginaires" stopped on the banks of the Charente estuary, on the peninsulas of Fouras-les-Bains and Port-des-Barques to present "The Route of the Carrelets".

An invitation to daydreaming at the heart of Rochefort Ocean territory

During a summer weekend, take the "Route des Carrelets" and immerse yourself in the territory. 

First of all, during an evening, "La Nuit des Carrelets" invites you to an artistic stroll through these little huts. Subtle and poetic lighting of the tiles, sound and musical installations. A whole program to contemplate the heritage of the Land Of Fort Boyard.

Then, during an afternoon, let yourself be transported by "Les Voyages Sonores". You will live an atypical experience at the edge of the water with musical performances, artistic experiences on the fishing huts.
