“Awesome Castle”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

When we planned our stop in Fougeres we thought to be here an hour or two and ended up spending the whole day! It is definitely on our list of places to come back to and spend a couple of days. The castle is amazing to explore and definitely something young children would enjoy. There are videos in the various towers to fill you in on the history and lots of places to explore, without worrying about what your children can hurt!

“Very Good Castle Tour”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2012

We stopped in Fougeres for lunch, and were happy to take a good long walk around this very interesting medieval fortress. The audioguides were excellent, explaining what was happening and the development of the chateau over 5 centuries, including the French view of several of the periods of war betrween England and France.

“Don't miss this amazing, enormous castle”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2012

Children will love climbing inside the turrets, all will enjoy the views and there's plenty of history too. The English translations are the best I've ever seen,.
