In Jersey, where I come from, we have quite a few dolmens, so it is with some confidence that I say this is as good as they come. And the free recorded introduction is a good extra.

This is amazing. It is free to get in, and as you drive down the small road with the Bulls and cows to the right, it seems to take you right back! We went on a cold foggy morning, and no one was around, so it was almost eerie anyway, and reminded me of a series I had watched called... More

This is an enormous dolmen. 19.5 metres in length 6m wide and 4m high, with gigantic stones totalling 500 tones. It lines up with the winter equinox and there is a model on the ground showing how it all happens. Well worth seeing.

We have visited all of the Carnac sites and now here as well. The Fairy Rocks at Roche are truly the better dolmens. They are giant Megalithes and it is like being at Stonehenge with all of the posts and lintels lining up against each other, instead of in a broken circular fashion at Stonehenge. We actually enjoyed La Roche-aux-Fees... More

This is one of the most impressive megalithic sites in Brittany, with multiple series of megaliths / dolmens still standing from antiquity. You are free to walk around & explore. Has a short movie overview, in French. Now you don't have to make that long drive to Carnac to view these marvels...

If you are driving around Rennes, do not hesitate to go and see this megalith. The site is small but well maintained and there is no charge for it, it is worth an outing. Take the longer way to get there and stop by the very nice city of Vitré, you will not be disappointed at all!

I highly recommend seeing this dolmen, as it appears to be in good undisturbed condition. There is a little information office at the carpark that has a free short video in various languages about the history of the site.

What a wonder to stumble upon on our tour of Bretagne. This one took a little finding with our GPS and the occasional sign giving some hint of direction. We visited midweek during spring and there was only one other car there so we had the place almost to ourselves. Signage for non-French speakers is non-existent, but if you have... More

interesting place to visit... there's some info room too with video about the rocks... but the atmosphere of the place could be deeper. now we have a car road just next to the rocks, so it cuts the feeling a lot.
