The island is also close to Fort Boyard.HistoryDuring the Roman period, it seems the island was connected to the continent at low tide. It finally took its current shape around 1500.In 1067, Isembert de Châtelaillon gave the island to the order of Cluny. A small convent was established, which depended on St Martin in Île de Ré.At the end of the 12th century, France and England fought for the possession of the island. Until 1286, the island was located at the boundary between the French and the English Saintonge, formed by the estuary of the Charente River. During the Hundred years war, Aix became English for about 15 years.In the 16th century, during the French Wars of Religion, the island became Catholic and then Protestant.
