La Flow Vélo starts (or finishes) on the beautiful Île d’Aix just off the coast from Fouras. Ile d’Aix is small but perfectly formed with hollyhocks all over the place and lots of little sandy beaches on its beautiful coves.
There’s a tiny village with a few shops and restaurants, the obligatory 17th fort designed and built by Vauban to protect against the Brits and a gravel track goes round the island linking everything together. Cars are not allowed on the island so it’s peaceful and very quiet.
All the hard work has been done for you as here’s what you need to know (and all in English!)
