A middle age dream come true!

Loved the castle! It was so cool to see all its structure. I couldn't help to imagine being a knight.

This was a superb castle, surrounded by a moat and outside are beautiful gardens and parts of the town still have medieval buildings. The castle is interesting with various exhibitions and displays, including info on the history of the region and the battles between England and France. Highly recommend this one.

Fougeres with it's gardens and chateau is ideal for a day or two's exploration. The chateau visit is well organised and we learnt a lot about the history of the area......easy to recommend, though the walk up to the town is fairly steep!

We spent a good hour and a half scrabling the ramparts and up and down the towers. The views are incredible but dizzying. Lots of school kids but it really pepped up the atmosphere. It is a place where you have to be reasonably fit to walk around as the stairs are precipitous and parts of the wall walk are... More

Solid Middle Ages castle. The walls are impressive and it is well worth a visit. You can walk right round the ramparts.

We found this castle 3 years ago on our first visit to Fougeres and loved it so much we visit every year when we are on holiday in France. It is very well preserved; to the point where you feel as if you are being drawn back in time. The audio tour is very informative and you can proceed at... More

Fougeres is a little bit off the beaten track.We stopped by on our way to St.Malo after reading a recommendation. The Château is a imposing piece of medieval architecture and well worth the stop.There is also a walkway around the Château and the old part of Fougeres where you can have a little break with coffee and Crêpes in one...

Thoroughly recommend visiting as for us it made more sense of the multiple chateaux in the Bretagne Marches. We went to Vitre first from which we really got no idea of the significance of the fortifications

Off the beaten track, but well worth the trip. The Chateau truly shows how military architecture of the past was designed to protect the villagers of the town. The remnants of the fort are amazing well preserved. A must see.
