Fort la Pree, La Flotte

#2 of 13 in Things to do in La Flotte
Fort de La Prée, built in 1625, is located near the eastern end of the Île de Ré, in France.HistoryIn 1625, the French officer Toiras led the Royalist troops when they captured Ré from the Huguenots under the command of admiral Duke of Soubise. After his victory, Toiras received the title of Count, and became Governor of Île de Ré. It was he who built Fort de La Prée. He also worked on the larger fortifications at Saint-Martin-de-Ré.The Duke of Buckingham ignored Fort de La Prée during his three-month siege of Saint-Martin-de-Ré in 1627. This neglect fatally weakened his position on the island. Toiras managed to land troops there, and from there force the English to give up their siege and withdraw in defeat.

  • A very interesting tour of this military site. A beautiful location and a discovery of the surrounding nature near the bridge of l "island of Ré. Nice also disguises that allow to recover in the time of the 3 Musketeers

  • Dedicated to the demolition and abandonment, this fort now restored merit we linger there. Beautiful location, it feels like the prow of a large ship. To complete the visit, Knights outfits are available at the entrance.

  • Super!
  • This place loaded with history we much more, more, we had the chance by visiting off-season to have for us alone. Fun for the family, the children loved the wardrobe room. Shame that those above are not necessarily in good condition. For the rest, nothing to say. Very nice Tower is well explained on the spot and moving inside the fort is via a small plan given to the entry. The parking would be maybe to review (huge holes) we are not all equipped 4 x 4 ;)

  • Beautiful location with views breathtaking (low and high tide). The fort is very nice. It is better to take a guide to explain otherwise we can miss out on interesting things. The rooms inside the fort are very good.
