Possibly, clearly there are a lot of contenders but the Chateau de Fougeres has to be on the top 10 list of castles of the world. It was certainly a large fortress in a commanding position and there is enough left for a full circumnavigation around the walls and trips up and down numerous towers, all with great views of...

If you like Castles you will love this, one of the oldest in Europe also worth walking around and seeing the church.

Very interesting visit to the château with lots of interesting architecture and views to be enjoyed. Audio guide was very good and synced up in English to give you all the history about the château and the region.

This château has to be seen to be believed. It is absolutely stunning and well worth a visit. It's not far from Mont St Michel which is another amazing attraction on the coast. This really brings history to life and gives it a new dimension if you study the subject.

Unlike most tourist attractions Chateau Fougeres includes a free audio tour. It is very old atmospheric and the children loved exploring. I liked the visual presentation in the tower which went someway to making me understand why the French aren't to keen on the English.

This chateau is very interesting and fun to tour. Self guided tour device told its history along the way. Added touch throughout the chateau - boxes with keys - you open to find more information. Really great chateau to visit.

The cost of admission (8 euros) includes a self guided tour device with interesting stories that really made the chateau come to life for us. Several little cafes around the entrance so you can sit and have a glass of wine and look at it all.

We had a look at what the main attractions were in Brittany and saw that Fougeres was listed as 23. I think this should be higher up the list as it was a really lovely town, with beautiful views from the Jardin. Expect a lot of walking but even with a buggie we didn't find it a problem.
