Magical location in itself on the ILE D'AIX, no cars, many bikes, 2 hour tour of the island by foot.... clean, historic with Napoleon who stayed 3 days, before leaving for ST HELENE.. ., Napoleon museum, Fort LIEDOT, or even Fort BOYARD are his creations... heavenly, to know absolutely. Value for money Pierre et Vacances, very satisfactory.
Particularly pleasant residence in this magical place that is the island of Aix. The swimming pool is really a plus, it is very well maintained. The apartment has a pleasant view of the sea....the technical team and the welcome were perfect. Thank you for looking after my little trailer during the stay! In short, I will come back!
It's been years since we chose Fort de la Rade as a stopover on the island of Aix and until now we had only praised this place...
... and like old regulars we have a few traditions, like asking for a room on the mainland side (apartment with mezzanine) but this year, it's the first year where we haven't been able to choose, despite the emails I've received sent before departure... and which had not been read because the person at reception that I called from the boat before arriving was not even aware of it!
Another old habit also disappeared, being able to order bread and pastries the day before and collect them the next morning... service ended because catering has been abandoned!!!
In short, a magnificent place but which seems to me to have been abandoned by Pierre et Vacances!!!!
