The carrelets (fishing huts) - Tourism in the Charente-Maritime

Very present in the département, the carrelets are fishing nets that the fishermen use from their typical huts built on stilts. A true part of Charente-Maritime heritage, these fishermen's huts with suspended carrelets create a picturesque scene.

The fishing net is a friendly activity to enjoy with family or friends. Spend a day fishing - even if there are no fish! - And a picnic is a great time to share with nature.
