This commune certainly deserves its classification among the "Most Beautiful Villages in France". It can be reached from the viaduct by taking a road passing in front of the remains of an abbey and fields rich in colour. La Flotte is first and foremost a port where everyone, from sailors to passing tourists, calls at, eager to immerse themselves in this place steeped in history. Built in 1765, it has seen the departure of many ships loaded with the island's two treasures, salt and wine. Today, sailboats and pleasure boats moor there, offering themselves a very special stopover in this port lined with bistros and restaurants. Asleep during the winter, waking up at the first beautiful days, the port is the beating heart of the village. It is from here that flowered alleys, lined with low houses and leading to the medieval market, start. More than two centuries old, it comes back to life every morning. The paved courtyard is again trodden by lovers of fresh produce who discover stalls covered with wooden lean-to.
