Listed as one of France’s Plus Beaux Villages, Brouage is surrounded by an expansive 3,000-hectare marshland. This serene countryside is dotted with oyster beds and interspersed with hiking trails that are ideal for nature walks and bird-watching.

The 17th-century Citadelle de Brouage encloses the town within more than two kilometers of 13-meter-high walls, and includes seven bastions. Visitors can walk along the old citadel’s ramparts to take in sensational views of the landscape.

The Halle aux Vivres presents expositions related to the history of Brouage. Tourists will also enjoy discovering the village’s locally owned artisan boutiques and ateliers of paintings, ceramics, and other crafts.
